Taylor Swift In Elie Saab – 2013 Brit Awards

Taylor Swift In Elie Saab - 2013 Brit Awards

Let me guess: you saw Taylor Swift in Elie Saab in the title for tonight’s 2013 Brit Awards and you immediately thought the popstrel was wearing an embellished gown.

With her MO, I wouldn’t blame you, but on this occasion she wore a sleek Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2013 gown – sans sequins.

The gorgeous black sleeveless gown with sheer panels in the shoulders and skirt was, however, accented with a gold belt for a touch of bling.

Smouldering without her signature red lip colour, the singer opted for neutral makeup with smoky eyes and a dark manicure.

Putting my Elie Saab bias to one side, she was one of the best on the night.

    This is fabulous.

  4. Yeliz February 20, 2013 at 20:09 #

    Lol, your guess was right FC, I thought she’s wearing another embellished ES gown. This look surprised me and I have to say I love it. It’s simple but amazing. Could be my best dressed of the night.

  5. Anne February 20, 2013 at 20:10 #

    Hot! Taylor so rarely wears black that it makes this extra dramatic and extra saucy.

  6. Miguel Angel February 20, 2013 at 20:21 #

    I think it’s great but I don’t see any different and exceiting from this look. And also I’m feeling like I’ve already seen this shape on her.

  7. SilentVisitor February 20, 2013 at 20:23 #

    Finally, an Elie Saab done right. After the disaster of Goya Toledo, I can only thank Taylor Swift……..She looks just perfect….

  8. Angie February 20, 2013 at 20:29 #

    Flawless! Another BDOTW contender IMO. I always like her style, but sometimes she is too predictable and monotonous. This time she surprised me in the best way. This is perfection (and not white!!).

  9. Julie A February 20, 2013 at 20:34 #

    The best she has ever looked. Flawless.

  10. Noemi February 20, 2013 at 20:40 #

    The dress is gorgeous and the styling perfect.

  11. Chistine February 20, 2013 at 20:52 #

    She looks great. Lovely dress.

  12. NooG February 20, 2013 at 20:53 #

    I’m no Taylor fan but she gets an A+ here.

  13. Ella February 20, 2013 at 20:55 #

    In my opinion, I find Taylor trying WAY TOO HARD to move away from her “country cutie” status. Granted, there aren’t any sequins and she looks great, but I am finding a lot of similarities in her and, say, in Selena Gomez right now.

    I am all for fashion evolution, but this is too much for me.

    • Lou February 20, 2013 at 22:16 #

      Yes!! I was going to write the exact same thing on a Selena Gomez post.Their style doesn’t really Come naturally,trying to throw away the ‘good girl’ image so the request that every outfit has either slits,cut outs plunging necklines and are by ‘sexy’ ‘daring’ designers like Versace.

    • Kathy February 20, 2013 at 23:20 #

      Here’s how I see it: Taylor has made the transition from teenager to adult quite gracefully and successfully (and not drastically at all) while Selena’s public image has yet to catch up to her. Selena is wearing designers like Atelier Versace, which is a bit too mature for her. A lot of her looks DO suit her, which is nice, but I find that Taylor is just more aware of what works for her.

        I’m with Kathy.

  14. Moxie February 20, 2013 at 21:05 #

    No sparkles and no white! Who’d have thought her capable? She looks great.

  15. arang February 20, 2013 at 21:38 #

    Love this. It’s got more oomph to it than her usual, but it’s not too much for her either. Excellent.

  16. EmmaWoodhouse February 20, 2013 at 21:43 #

    Sadly, it’s a no. The sheer panels in the skirt do it in for me. If they were white (and though the sheer shoulder inserts are fine, they could have been white too for a chic modern look) I would love this look. She styled it well and everything, but I can’t like it because of that. :(

  17. shap_half February 20, 2013 at 21:53 #

    She looks good, but she’s starting to look the same in most of her red-carpet looks. I’m not surprised to see this from her. It’s another sexy, form-fitting gown.

  18. TeaAtTwo February 20, 2013 at 22:14 #

    I don’t like how high up the sheer panels go but she does look age appropriately sophisticated. And yes, the black does seem refreshing. Feels a bit weird typing that given that that’s so many stars wear too much black.

  19. Mana February 20, 2013 at 23:38 #

    I don’t know where she stands now, (the cutie country girl or the sexy-not-trashy-yet girl). I bet she doesn’t know it either. Anyway she looks good.

  20. Aline February 20, 2013 at 23:50 #

    Yes, yes, yes! This is perfection! Nieves found worthy competition for BDOTW!

  21. ash February 21, 2013 at 01:30 #

    simply the best.BDOTW.

  22. JJ February 21, 2013 at 03:35 #


  23. Louise February 21, 2013 at 03:54 #

    Finally, something really different! And she looks amazing, some aspects of it is still really her though which is really good! Love it!

  24. the ogre February 21, 2013 at 06:30 #

    heheehe! so if its not white then it’s black. but a good black i guess. she’s working it really well. i like!

  25. Beta February 21, 2013 at 08:32 #

    easily my favourite of the night

  26. Jones19 February 21, 2013 at 11:14 #

    Say what you will about Taylor Swift but one thing no one can deny, she’s always consistent on the red carpet and always brings her A game. Stunning!

  27. Amy February 21, 2013 at 12:18 #

    not a fan and it has nothing to do with swift, i just don’t like the design, it’s lazy.

  28. Pedro February 21, 2013 at 15:10 #

    Wow Wow Wow!

    She looks PERFECT!


    • Linda February 21, 2013 at 20:47 #

      Wowza! Those are killer shoes. I want to know who helped style Taylor for this event. She needs to keep them on the payroll.

  29. Christopher Teoh Jing Xiang February 21, 2013 at 17:38 #

    Adios sequins, hola simplicity!! Taylor Swift ditched her favorite sequinned outfit for this Elie Saab black sleeveless gown with sheer panels along neckline and skirt!! Love her neutral makeup and luscious waves and that friggin-amazing I’m Sexy & I Know It posing complete this BDOTW Worthy outfit!! Kudos, Taylor Swift!! Her “STYLES” are amazing!!

    • Florencia February 21, 2013 at 20:31 #

      LOL, at that “styles” joke 😉 and I agree 100% with you!

  30. Linda February 21, 2013 at 20:45 #

    Wow! I love this look from her sleek hair and bangs, simle makeup and simple and elegant dress. This is Taylor best look yet. She looks stunning.

  31. RitaB February 22, 2013 at 16:09 #
