Taylor Swift continued to surprise us on the red carpet at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards on Thursday evening.

There was a time when you could easily predict Taylor’s look, but it appears she has kicked her embellishment fetish for good, wearing a J. Mendel silk crepe suit.

Her ivory suit featured a tuxedo jacket with pin-tucked pants and a white ruffled V-neck top.

Taylor’s slick monochromatic, menswear-inspired look was styled with metallic gold Tom Ford sandals and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

This rich red lip colour works for me on this occasion, as do her sleek straight locks and kohl-rimmed eyes.

I can’t find a single fault with this look. Can you?
