Big Hollywood names found it quite easy being blue on Sunday for the New York City premiere of ‘The Smurfs.’

Katy Perry flirted in a custom mini invoking Smurfette, the character she voices in the CGI/live-action hybrid flick that opens Friday. The dress came via the Blonds, prolific costumers for the likes of Rihanna, Kylie Minogue and Lady Gaga.

Snuggling up with a life-sized Smurfette on the indigo carpet, Perry was joined by her film costars Neil Patrick Harris with fiance David Burtka, Sofia Vergara, George Lopez, Hank Azaria, Jayma Mays of ‘Glee,’ and ‘Project Runway’ guru Tim Gunn (yes, he’s a costar).

George Lopez, Brooke Shields, Oliver Platt, Joey Fatone, Melissa Joan Hart and singer Kimberly Locke caught the Ziegfeld Theatre screening as well.
