The 'Teenage Dream' singer says the 'Call Your Girlfriend' singer is "effortlessly cool" with her fashion and music.

Katy Perry has praised her California Dreams tour mate Robyn as being a "tastemaker", ahead of the singer's appearance as a musical guest on Saturday Night Live.

The 'Last Friday Night' singer guest hosted the 10th December edition of the iconic sketch show, which featured two live performances from the Swedish pop star.

"I don't need to give her advice," Katy told MTV News ahead of the show. "She needs to give me advice.

"She's cool dude. She makes everyone cooler. She's just, like, the epitome of effortless cool."

"Like, you look at her wardrobe and you think, 'I don't think I could wear that,' but she wears it and she just owns it."

Katy admitted she herself had even taken inspiration from the 'Be Mine' singer, after deciding to adopt her penchant for platform shoes.

"She was wearing them way back when, in the beginning of the tour," Katy added. "Now Prada's doing then, everyone's wearing them. Rihanna's wearing them. She's kind of the tastemaker. It's gonna be a great show because of that."

Katy Perry's appearance on Saturday Night Live featured special guests including Kristen Wiig, Val Kilmer and Alec Baldwin.
