Eagle-eyed viewers noticed that the Roar singer's outfit was customised.

A peak audience of 14.6 million people watched coverage of last night’s moving One Love Manchester tribute concert. But one subtle tribute may have been missed by many of those watching the emotional occasion. Katy Perry’s dress featured a collage of photos of the 22 people who lost their lives when a bomb was detonated outside Manchester Arena on May 22, shortly after Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman concert had ended.

Perry looked dramatic in a short white dress and a feathered white cape, but eagle-eyed fans also noticed that the singer had photos on the dress which ran across her collar, cuffs and her back into the shape of a heart. It was an understated and touching nod to those who died two weeks ago, and it only became visible when Perry dropped her cape to the ground as she performed her hits Roar and Part Of Me.

Some fans took to Twitter to say how touched they were with Perry’s gesture.

Katy Perry herself tweeted her respect for the audience and people of Manchester yesterday:

Other stars who took to the Old Trafford stage included Miley Cyrus, Liam Gallagher, The Black Eyed Peas, Take That, Robbie Williams, Little Mix, Niall Horan and Justin Bieber.

Choosing to address the crowd, Perry – who is currently rocking a short, spiky peroxide blond haircut - spoke from the heart. She said: ""Thank you Ariana [Grande] for your incredible courage and strength, and for inviting me to participate. It’s not easy to always choose love, is it? Especially in moments like these. It can be the most difficult thing to do. But love conquers fear and love conquers hate, and this love you chose will give you strength and it’s our greatest power."
