Even If You Don’t Like Taylor Swift, You’ll Love The Outfit She Wore To The ACMAs

Taylor Swift attending the 2014 ACMAsFull disclosure — it sounds like most of the people working around me presently completely disagree with my opinion of the dress that Taylor Swift wore to the 2014 ACMAs last night.

(That’s Academy Of Country Music Awards for all you peons out there who were watching the Game Of Thrones season four premiere last night instead of being glued to CMT. Shame on you.)

Anyway, like I said, that title is a bit misleading, because I’m apparently the only person in this office who doesn’t completely hate what Taylor’s wearing or think she looks like Kendall Jenner while wearing it. But it’s my blog post and you’re all just living on it, so the title stays!

I’m far from Taylor’s biggest fan, but for whatever reason, I’m completely obsessed with her outfit. And hopefully you will be too, so I’m not so alone in the world. She’s wearing what’s being called a J. Mendel gown, but it’s really two separate pieces. There’s a form-fitting white crop top with short sleeves and matching geometric cutouts over her clavicle, and it’s paired with a floor-length black skirt with an extreeeeemely high slit. Like, not quite Angelina Jolie heights, but we’re getting pretty close.

She’s also wearing Casadei heels, casually tousled hair, and Jennifer Fisher jewelry, all of which I think are really nice and understated. But I could be biased, because frankly, I’m just thrilled Taylor’s stopped tucking her hair under itself for that weird Old Hollywood look. I was pretty over that. But this feels like such a breath of fresh air! It’s so great that I don’t even mind that her makeup’s a little intense and that she didn’t win for either of the awards she was up for — Entertainer Of The Year and Female Vocalist Of The Year.

It’s the kind of dress that makes me understand why she dances in the front row at award shows, y’know? Because if I had that body and looked like she does in that dress, you better believe I’d be shaking my parts around whenever music was playing.

Damn girl. I’m impressed. Write a song that’s as good as that dress, and you’ll be a shoe-in for both those awards in 2015.

    I’m into the strappy shoes and the cut-out skirt.

  • Lindsey Conklin

    I’m obsessed with the outfit! I love her shoes, the black and white combo, and long skirt + crop top!

    • bambi

      and I am obsessed wwith the brown/cream outfit the brunette is wearing. Is that a sari??

    • Lindsey Conklin

      yes! it was in India for Indian Independence Day!

  • bambi

    I think why I love this outfit so much is because its so different from the usual sparkly spangly dresses she wears. Its very..mature and sophisticated. I love that she’s experimenting with her look. Also, partial midriff!*gasp*

    I yelled “YASSS” and now I’m ashamed.

    Honestly I can’t usually stand Taylor Swift but this outfit is so smart and just brilliant! She doesn’t look like a 16 year old for once. Well done!

  • Jill O’Rourke

    I dig it. I also like her hair shorter.

    I don’t know how anyone can dislike Taylor Swift. I’m not a fan of her music, but I think she’s a very classy young lady compared to the skank patrol up on stage today.

    Speaking of India … I wonder why she’s not taking her Red Tour there since all her other shows in Asia were all sold out ( countries like China, Japan, Indonesia, Thailand etc. )

    And it was even reported that her show in China were sold out in fastest record time in Chinese history.

      I’m an Indian, and let me tell you something. People either listen to Hindi songs exclusively, or English songs exclusively. Now it may seem to you that since we are home to more than a billion people, even a minority will include a huge number of people, but sadly, no. Most of the people actually in touch with the music outside India are either into one direction (ugh) or electronic (can i die?). So i guess thats why no major artist performs in India. Except like *insert stoned voice* hard well is siiiick man or *high pitched squeal* Justin bieber rockssssssssss.

      Bottom line is she will sell out shows in India if she choose to go there.
      If she can sell out china, japan etc…which she did….
      That is why she is the highest money maker last year….go google billboard….
      That is also why she has sold the most albums for the past 7 or 8 years…

      That is why she is the number one digital artist of all time…

    • zen

      All I am trying to say is no one in the world can sell music better that Taylor Swift…..and to add to my point …..she made more money than Justin Bieber and one direction combined in music alone….
