Taylor Swift In J. Mendel – 2011 CMA Awards

Following the BMI Awards on Wednesday, the 2011 CMA Awards took place last night in Nashville, Tennessee.

Taylor Swift looked angelic wearing a J. Mendel gown.

Her ice silk mousseline strapless couture gown has a gathered tulle overlay and feathered organza detailing.

This is a beautiful gown, but there is too much gown in this gown. I wish the train was trimmed for a sleeker finish.

Lorraine Schwartz chandelier earrings and a wavy ponytail completed her look.

    I really like it. I wish the train were shorter, but aside from that, its a really great dress. I would have straightened her hair and pulled it back into a low bun. Its nice though.

    I actually like it, but I agree that she is kind of overdressed. Still, good look for her.

    It’s a beautiful gown – just not on her. For some reason, I see this dress and think Kate Beckinsale or Eva Mendes, someone who would work the heck out of it. I wish Taylor would change it up a bit – sure, she is sweet & wholesome, but a more daring look wouldn’t kill her once in a while. I think I’ve been over her “oh gosh, golly gee, you really like me” bit for a while now. Shock me, please.

    It’s a pretty gown, but I don’t think I would vote for it as BDOTW.

    Oh God. How many times, and in how many variations, have we seen this gown? Do designers pass it around as a filler gown of sorts?

    Beautiful gown, stunning but the train is a bit too much for an awards show.

  11. Naomi November 10, 2011 at 09:58 #

    Good lord, girl.

    This look reminds me of the dress she wore at the MET gala ….déjà vu ?

    • Alina November 10, 2011 at 14:29 #

      I feel the same.

    • Yinka November 10, 2011 at 17:07 #

      My thoughts exactly although this looks really bridal…

    • Hannah November 10, 2011 at 21:10 #

      I feel exactly hte same, it is like the same dress melded with pretty much every other gown she has ever worn. I am still prayign for something different next time. fingers crossed …..

    Taylor Swift is starting to look like a cloth hanger, the cloths change but her face/expression stay the same. I am tired of her cat eye and red/pink lip color with a waxy face.Even her hair always appears the same ,its just curly/wavy. She is sickly sweet now,I think I am diabetic of her. She really needs to change it up, she is too young to be soo monotonous.

    • Elaine2 November 10, 2011 at 12:47 #

      I totally agree with you.

  14. Jess2 November 10, 2011 at 09:04 #

    It is a gorgeous dress and she looks beautiful, I’m glad she pulled her hair back and went with the deeper pink lip colour. It is a i too bridal for me though so I agree with you FC there needs to be less train for a more sleeker look

    • Emily November 10, 2011 at 09:13 #

      too bridal – agree!

    • maria November 10, 2011 at 15:23 #

      first thing i thought – too bridal. would be actually lovely for a wedding.

    Wow, she sent her waxwork to this event…maybe she was tired.
