At the Jan. 28 awards show, Kerr was spotted wearing a simple white strapless dress with her hair styled in loose, voluminous, old-Hollywood curls. Her bestie, Perry, dazzled in a two-piece gold ensemble by Australian brand Zimmerman.
After the red carpet, Perry headed to the stage to present Kerr with her award and directly addressed the elephant in the room.
“Some of you might be confused about why I’m introducing Miranda. That doesn’t play into the antiquated narrative of ex-wives and new wives,” Perry said, per Page Six.
“And yes, it’s true, most of the media would like to see us mud wrestle, including [her husband] Evan [Spiegel], but we are here to lead by love because Miranda is love. And as a lot of you know, love comes in many family iterations.”
The pop star noted that she is “proud to be family with a woman who is living her truth every day with grace and beauty” and commended her for being so “dedicated to her three beautiful boys [Flynn, 12, Hart, 4, and Myles, 3], her partner and that smoking hot bod.”

“I’m so grateful for our modern blended family. It’s like I gained another sister, one with whom I usually sidebar from the main family chat and agree with,” Perry concluded.
The Australian-born model also shared a sentimental statement on Instagram following the ceremony, writing, “Such an honour to be recognized by the @_aaausa for excellence in the arts … And a big thank you to @katyperry for her kind and heartfelt words ❤️🥰.”
Kerr and Bloom were married from 2010 until 2013, when they announced their split in a joint statement that said in part, “Despite this being the end of [our] marriage, [we] love, support and respect each other as both parents of [our] son [Flynn] and as family.”
