Forget the cupcake bikini tops and the whipped-cream-spewing bras -- it's Katy Perry's shiny "California Gurls" short-shorts that we're sweet on!

In the Candy Land-themed tribute to her home state, quirky Perry sings about Jeeps, gin 'n juice, and Daisy Dukes while dancing in a sexy pair of cutoffs that gleam as if made from ribbon candy.

The singer topped off her cavity-causing look with a Jelly Belly blue wig, naturally.

But the 25-year-old future Mrs. Russell Brand didn't dip her hips in boiling sugar -- she's actually wearing Diesel's indigo-blue-wash "Mintha 8B3" denim shorts, which Perry's personal wardrobe designer and stylist, Johnny Wujek, customized with more than 7,000 Swarovski crystals.

The result was a one-of-a-kind confection that Perry loved so much, she posted a Twitpic of them last month, boasting, "don't be jelly about the custom Diesel daisy dukes!"


But don't get your taffy in a twist! You can get the same results for the price of a bag of penny candy (which, truthfully, doesn't even cost a penny these days): Pick up a pair of "Mintha 8B3" shorts at Diesel ($160) and embellish them yourself. Cupcake bra optional.
