From Lady Gaga yesterday to Katy Perry today, there's no shortage of tributes around L.A. to today's leading ladies of pop.

I've featured Erin Lareau's Guitartown homage to the 'California Gurl' before here at Jason in Hollywood, but the other day I was driving past the 9200 building on Sunset Boulevard and the guitar sculpture was simply dazzling in the Californian sunshine so I couldn't resist taking some more photos.

Erin Lareau has created some of Katy Perry's fabulous stage costumes and glittering microphones, so it was only apt that she be asked to create this 10ft tall Candy Strip/Katy Perry Gibson Les Paul replica to be a part of West Hollywood's GuitarTown public art installation last August.

The Swarovski crystal encrusted design is not the only way Katy Perry is making her presence known around L.A., as further along Sunset Boulevard you can also spy some colourful billboards for the stars new fragrance 'Purrs'.
