Taylor Swift In J. Mendel – 2013 Met Gala

Taylor Swift In J Mendel - 2013 Met Gala

Taylor Swift fully embraced the 2013 Met Gala punk theme on Monday evening in New York City.

The singer attended the event with one of her favourite designers, Gilles Mendel.

Like many other attendees, she was able to still work an uber feminine look whilst channelling her inner punk rocker, wearing this J. Mendel gown.

The gown, which featured lace insets and a dramatic embellished neckline, was styled with a J. Mendel minaudiere and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

The singer further channeled the punk theme with dramatic smoky eyes and dark nails.

    It really is my prejadive that a blonde cant pull of black gowns well… cuz this look is very nice! but wouldve been better on brunette

    She looks out of her league. But I am sorta liking this. She is giving me Nicole Kidman vibes here.

    For me is just stuning….BDTW

      +1 I love it. it’s decadent

  4. Ariadne May 7, 2013 at 07:27 #

    I like the outfit but there’s just something about the 2nd pic that I don’t like..

    • Moxie May 7, 2013 at 15:12 #

      For me it is that sideways stink eye.

  5. Yeliz May 7, 2013 at 07:27 #

    She should’ve worn her hair up. Other than that, this is a nice look.

    I am loving the darker side of Tay Tay !

  7. Aline May 7, 2013 at 07:39 #

    I like the gown itself, but it doesn’t work on Taylor. It’s unflattering, makes her look boxy. However, I love her chosen hairstyle for the event.

  8. Derro May 7, 2013 at 07:43 #

    Would have looked far better without the tacky embellishments around the neckline and shoulders.

  9. Mandy May 7, 2013 at 07:46 #

    If the collar of the gown had been removes i may like it more, but at the same time if it had been i would have felt deja vu. It’s a miss for me. The make up is nice, not feeling the hair.

    I love this! It’s gorgeous and different. Glamorous and fits the theme. She hit out of the park for me.

    • Ioana May 7, 2013 at 08:31 #

      It’s one of my fave. When you associate Taylor Swift and punk style, it sounds crazy. But she NAILED this theme.

      Looove the make up and the gown’s details.

    • Fiona May 7, 2013 at 09:28 #

      Ditto

    • dee May 7, 2013 at 13:19 #

      I agree. She really is working this.

  11. Rashmi May 7, 2013 at 08:05 #

    I loveee this, except the hair part.. Wish it was tied up.

  12. Pene May 7, 2013 at 08:44 #

    so deja vu

  13. Jess2 May 7, 2013 at 08:48 #

    Very nice! Love the gown!

  14. L May 7, 2013 at 08:58 #

    It’s fine and forgettable, like everything she wears.

  15. Johnny May 7, 2013 at 09:01 #

    She really IS stunning! Always! I don’t know but every time I see her, she just looks good in it. In every awards show or any event, she looks so good. Way to go Taylor! So beautiful

  16. Alicat May 7, 2013 at 09:12 #

    This is a beautiful gown and I agree with Christine (above) that it is made for Nicole Kidman. Taylor Swift’s hair is what brings it down. It is too princessy, and needed to be up in an edgier style to go with that eye makeup.

  17. Mariam Thani May 7, 2013 at 10:09 #

    unique.. I LOVE IT!

  18. yasmine May 7, 2013 at 11:35 #

    love love love love, Taylor comes off as the quintessential good girl with a dark side. I don’t i like the hald up do, its a change from most ladies of the night, I find it makes her more graceful

  19. Amy May 7, 2013 at 11:47 #

    great dress, bad hairdo. She still gets an A for taking into account the theme.

  20. Kathy May 7, 2013 at 12:03 #

    WOW. This is so stunning! There are definitely some punk elements in the dress, which is nice to see, but at the same time she looks so regal. And her makeup…perfection. One of my top five of the night.

  21. MaddyEliza May 7, 2013 at 13:24 #

    I LOVE this!! This is perfect–for her and for the theme of the event!! Flawless oh my goodness. She is a VERY close second to Cameron Diaz as my best dressed of the night!! :D one of the best dressed for sure!!

  22. Lyo May 7, 2013 at 13:28 #

    Loved it. She looks great.

  23. Elise May 7, 2013 at 13:42 #

    the dress without the neckline would have been perfect. A great look anyway

  24. elle May 7, 2013 at 13:51 #

    I’m not crazy over her look, I feel like i see she wearing this kind of dress many time. It look repeatedly and generic.

  25. Alina May 7, 2013 at 14:31 #

    No. Just no.

  26. Jessica May 7, 2013 at 14:39 #

    Wow! She looks great! Maybe because I hadn’t expected her to be one of the best dressed but she proved me wrong! her look is gorgeous! she is totally in my top five!

  27. Vida May 7, 2013 at 15:08 #

    Amazing look, could have lost the shoulder embellishments to be less baroque but I love how mature it is. Who know Taylor can do punk. Only thing I hate are the eyebrows, they don’t match!

  28. ash May 7, 2013 at 15:11 #

    my favorite look from last night. Really stunning. BDOTW.

  29. Moxie May 7, 2013 at 15:13 #

    I like this look on Taylor. But the embellished neckline isn’t really working with the rest of the dress for me.

  30. Bella May 7, 2013 at 15:14 #

    Taylor almost always gets it right on the red carpet. With her figure and height, she wears most outfits with elegance. And she nails it here, though her hair could have been a funky up-do

  31. MikeWoj May 7, 2013 at 15:15 #

    That hair look like a second grader taking her school picture. Frizzy and awful and not punk

  32. EmmaWoodhouse May 7, 2013 at 15:37 #

    I came VERY close to loving this look, until I realized that it had Gwyneth sheer sides. All the sheerness is very disappointing for me, as I LOVE the rest of the look–the black and lace, the hair, the makeup, the neckline, everything. But I can’t get behind it :( and that hurts cause I love Taylor!

    • Kathy May 7, 2013 at 16:32 #

      At first the sheer side panels on this dress reminded me of Gwenyth’s Antonio Berardi too! But the distinction is that Gwenyth’s version was much more revealing, to the point that she admitted that she couldn’t have wore any underwear underneath :/ I just think Taylor’s dress is a lot tamer and not as TMI.

  33. robbie May 7, 2013 at 17:48 #

    possibly the best dress at the event, i am truly loving the new sexier taylor swift compared to the sugary sweet disney princess.

  34. Anj May 7, 2013 at 20:34 #

    Her hair wrecks this look. It’s like she tried to make it messy on purpose but it just looks like she spent an our on a humid island.

  35. sammy May 7, 2013 at 21:43 #

    YES!!!! Finally something I like!!!!! This dress is HOT!! She looks so dope it should be illegal!!!!!

  36. Angela May 8, 2013 at 04:27 #

    Kudos to tpTaylor for switching it up. She looks unique, fresh, fierce, and on trend.

  37. XxFebexX May 8, 2013 at 20:50 #

    her hear is beautiful! it looks like it’s golden. she looks stunning. only her make-up is a little bit to much

  39. Ana May 9, 2013 at 19:38 #

    I would’ve totally loved this with super straight hair.

  40. SI May 10, 2013 at 18:11 #

    she looked gorge

  41. Dhppy May 10, 2013 at 20:50 #

    This dress is overwrought. Far too many details going on.
