The elements factor into Katy Perry's 'Unconditionally' video. It looks like a period clip, mixed with some modern flourishes, like, you know, cars.

Perry is a snow fairy, completely with a rosy-cheeked glow and flakes in her black hair. She dances with aristocrats, trains an owl and dons rich-hued frocks in the incredibly visual clip, which also features a burning bed and Perry resting on the hood of a vehicle, covered in flowers.

The video mixes modernity with the Renaissance period -- Perry herself likened it to 'Dangerous Liaisons' and 'Anna Karenina.' There is no complete narrative, either.

It's one of those videos where you get lost in the images and the costumes, as opposed to trying to figure out what's going on. That's how unconditional love is. You don't think; you just go with it, and Perry's video captures that notion.
