Taylor Swift was easily the best dressed on the red carpet for the 2012 Academy of Country Music Awards, held on Sunday in Las Vegas, Nevada.

She looked outstanding wearing a J. Mendel Fall 2012 dress.

Gilles Mendel is very much Taylor’s go-to designer, but on this occasion she opted for a very modern, sleek sleeveless dress with metallic gold accents and cut-outs.

I guess she has read your comments because not a single sequin or embellishment was in sight for two red carpet appearances in a row.

Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Christian Louboutin ‘Summerissima’ criss-cross platform sandals accessorized her look.

Wavy hair, blunt bangs, kohl-rimmed eyes and a nude lip colour provided the finishing touches.

No sequins, no updo and no red lips. I think I need to lie down from the shock.

This by far one of Taylor’s best ever red carpet looks. I hope she ditches the ballerina-style dresses and gives us more of this in the future.

I just hope you guys haven’t put her off sequins for good.
