Taylor Swift In Elie Saab – 2013 CMT Music Awards

Taylor Swift In Elie Saab - 2013 CMT Music Awards

Taylor Swift gave us no surprises on the red carpet for the 2013 CMT Music Awards held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.

The singer wore a cream strapless Elie Saab Spring 2013 embellished dress with a rise-and-fall hemline.

In an attempt to mix things up she wore Jimmy Choo ‘Fauna’ booties but, as with Nicole Kidman, I find myself being a tad underwhelmed by this look as it’s not quite the show stopper I was expecting from her.

Cat eyes, a soft nude lip colour instead of the expected red, and a simple updo completed her look.

    I like the dress (wish it was longer, but oh well) and the booties, but not her hairstyle in this case.

    I feel like somehow her head looks way bigger than it actually is.

    I personally like Taylor Swift. But the bootie makes her look strange, better to wear heels.

    in this image, she might looks bit weird..but when you look other images…she looks better, yepp, hate the ankle booties,i would prefer strappy heels instead.

    I like everything about her look, although these boots look weird with the dress. Unlike the previous comments, I love her hairstyle and make-up the most! Dislike the nail polish, though.

    The dress had potential but the look is ruined by the booties and awful hairstyle. And would it kill her to crack a smile on the red carpet?

    Not to nitpick, but I believe those are the Fauna booties, not Flaunt:

    I wish she showed off the flounciness of this dress properly, had a little fun woth it – this pose-serious approach makes the dress just look baggy and weird. The boots are a head scratcher and as of that hair… so out-of-place. It looks like 20’s style go extremely, rained-on-and-dried bad. Overall, she can do better.

    didn’t like it at first,but after seeing more pictures when she’s in move, it’s just better.

    Who is the guy she is sitting with? Is he her date, or another country artist? (I don’t keep up with country music, but I do find myself interested in her many men….can’t help it.)

      …That would be her younger brother, Austin.

    I think the ankle booties give the dress an interesting twist. It’s not your typical Elie Saab, because it’s not cinched at the waist and it has a high-low hemline. Taylor’s choice of footwear makes the dress a little more boho, a little less movie-premiere and a little more Nashville-event.

  13. Christine June 6, 2013 at 14:28 #

    This is not her dress.

  14. elle_gb June 6, 2013 at 13:54 #

    She looks gorgeous but I dislike her ankle boots. it’s distracting and unnecessary.

  15. Ramsay June 6, 2013 at 10:46 #

    I find that hairstyle wrong with this flirty, flowy dress

    • Mandy June 6, 2013 at 11:50 #

      The hairstyle puts me off more so than the booties.

      • Prudence June 7, 2013 at 07:06 #

        yes me too! it makes me think of princess lea in star wars for some reason.

    • dee June 6, 2013 at 13:34 #

      I agree.

  16. Kyriaki - Cyprus June 6, 2013 at 10:41 #

    The dress is nice but wearing it with booties was the worst choice she could make. I don’t like the cat eyes either, especially with the bangs falling just above.

    Love the dress but can’t say the same about her styling

    • Yeliz June 6, 2013 at 10:53 #

      Same here. I was waiting to see this dress on the red carpet but Taylor’s styling is wrong in so many ways.

    • gabis June 6, 2013 at 13:39 #

      Agreed. The dress is gorgeous but the styling is dreadful. In a good mood I could cope with the hair but it’s impossible to feel any sympathy for those fugly boots.

      I love the hair too and hated the styling. Her hair is awful it looks like a helmet.
