Taylor Swift In Hervé Léger By Max Azria – 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Taylor Swift In Hervé Léger - 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Taylor Swift was in major temptress mode, as she took to the red carpet at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday night, where she also took home the Moon Man trophy for Best Female Video.

The ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ singer has an awards-show-style M.O. that we’ve nearly memorized, so it was no small surprise to see a slight detour with this vampy vintage-glam vibe.

She was dripping with an air of femme-fatale fierceness, striking a hands-on-hip pose in her plunging Herve Leger black crystallized gown.

The smoldering showdown continued with her retro pin curls, a smokey eye and a crimson-coated pout and nails.

Sparkling statement earrings thankfully took the place of necklace, so as not to compete with that dangerous neckline.

    the dress is nice but the makeup and hair make her look way older than she is. Still a nice look though

  2. jen August 26, 2013 at 23:22 #

    i like taylor and she looks good but that hair is just awful. and sadly i don’t think she’s got much sex appeal

    My favorite of the night. Perfect H2T.

  5. Ivy August 26, 2013 at 16:33 #

    This picture doesn’t do her justice…she looked much better when she was on stage

  6. Jess2 August 26, 2013 at 14:51 #

    A very nice surprise. Taylor looks gorgeous!

  7. charlotte August 26, 2013 at 13:43 #

    The dress is of couse beautiful,but I don’t think it suits her so well since she looks like Nicole kidman just got a botox.

  8. Aparajita August 26, 2013 at 12:03 #

    Hate this look.
    Mostly the hair.

  9. vanillarose August 26, 2013 at 11:08 #

    Taylor looks amazing here – it’s a nice change from all those boring white dresses.

  10. Jai August 26, 2013 at 10:59 #

    This is frankly awful. The hair feels like it’s mid-way through being finished. And the dress is just ugh.

  11. Paulyne August 26, 2013 at 10:21 #

    I love this look! She is one of my favorites of the night!

  12. TL August 26, 2013 at 10:19 #

    Why do I have a ‘did I just see Tyra Banks’ feeling?

  13. kane August 26, 2013 at 10:12 #

    BDOTEvent I reckon.

  14. Nat August 26, 2013 at 09:38 #

    She looks great but between the hairstyle, the neckline and the sparkles on the top, this feels a little dated, doesn’t it? Very showgirl in Vegas, not really modern.

  15. snowlion August 26, 2013 at 09:22 #

    At a glance I thought she was Eva Herzigova.

  16. Taylor Who? August 26, 2013 at 08:25 #


  17. Andy August 26, 2013 at 07:35 #


    Best of the night!

  18. pipsqueak August 26, 2013 at 05:00 #

    Love! Bye, country Barbie. Hello, modern-day Jean Harlow!

  19. Prudence August 26, 2013 at 04:58 #

    she has aged 20 years, her body is not curvaceous enough to do justice to the dress and her hair is awful.

  20. Renee August 26, 2013 at 04:55 #

    Her hair makes her look 23 going on 30 years old.

  21. Christy August 26, 2013 at 04:38 #

    I typically dislike Taylor’s outfits but this I am in love with, excluding the hair. Definitely one of the Best Dressed.

  22. Pedro August 26, 2013 at 04:23 #

    Amazing dress, amazing hair, amazing make up, amazing pose… BDOTW

  23. ash August 26, 2013 at 04:11 #

    Perfect look.

  24. Kimi August 26, 2013 at 04:09 #

    This is something I could get behind with but it just screams pageant from head to toe! Her hair is so Miss USA or something. I hate it and the dress could be nice too but it still screams like she’s in a pageant which is not good in my book.

  25. dave August 26, 2013 at 03:50 #

    Vampy with a dash of Karlie Kloss, no?

    • Evil Britta August 26, 2013 at 04:03 #

      Yes! Karlie is all I see here. Can’t decide if that’s good or not, feels really different.

  26. Eve_V August 26, 2013 at 03:48 #

    She looks absolutely stunning even though the look is slightly aging on her. But everything is perfect – the fit, her hair and makeup, nails and accessories. She nailed it. My favorite of the night, along with Selena Gomez.

  27. KatieKate August 26, 2013 at 03:42 #

    I didn’t think it would happen, but Ciara just totally got ousted from the top spot in my fashion playbook by Taylor’s old Hollywood femme fatale. She looks STUN.NING. Just wow.

  28. J August 26, 2013 at 03:41 #

    I really dislike the hair and the dress. I think it ages her.

  29. Christine August 26, 2013 at 03:38 #

    She looks so good. Her best look to date.

    • Yeliz August 26, 2013 at 12:00 #

      I agree.

  30. Angela August 26, 2013 at 03:36 #

    I hate the hair. Plus I just feel like this dress was made for a curvaceous woman and she just doesn’t fill it out.

    • AW August 26, 2013 at 03:52 #

      You’re so right. She doesn’t fill the dress out enough.

      Honestly though, I’m just glad she’s not dressed like a 15 year old. Small miracles.

      I’m over Herve and these bandage or bandage-adjacent dresses.

    • Denise August 26, 2013 at 08:58 #

      I bet anything if she were… curvaceous EVERYONE here would be commenting on TOO MUCH BOOBAGE and how she is all kinds of tacky…

      • sasa August 26, 2013 at 10:15 #

        She looks pretty yet it severely looks like dress up. I just don’t think her personality is pulling this off.

      • Moxie August 26, 2013 at 17:28 #

        Exactly. This dress works better on a less curvaceous woman, IMO.

  31. Nat39 August 26, 2013 at 03:36 #

    She looks gorgeous but I’m afraid trying a bit too hard with this look, she doesn’t have much of a fierce femme fatale in her naturally imo.

    • Iva August 26, 2013 at 08:00 #


  32. Florencia August 26, 2013 at 03:33 #

    I love the look. Everything about it. The dress fits her like a glove. The’s good to see the curls back. And the make-up is perfect.

    • Louise August 27, 2013 at 12:04 #

      Same, glad to see the curls back!

  33. Paulo August 26, 2013 at 03:32 #

    I really dislike this from the hair to the dress itself.

    • Alina August 26, 2013 at 07:19 #

      +1 Also, she’s trying way too hard.

      • Ariadne August 26, 2013 at 13:22 #

        +2 The hair doesn’t suit her.

        • Lily August 27, 2013 at 09:02 #

          +3.Agree.This dress for someone like Kim Kardashian.Taylor too skinny for this.

  34. Kathy August 26, 2013 at 03:31 #

    Glad we can always count on Taylor to class things up. She looks like an old-school movie star and here she’s posing like a supermodel. What a dress…it fits her like a glove. It’s got sex appeal for sure but it’s also elegant and timeless. Regal but not over-the-top.

    • Christina August 26, 2013 at 07:46 #

      I agree sight for sore eyes and a very welcome change from all the tack other guests seem to favour.

  35. Nat August 26, 2013 at 03:28 #

    She looks stunning. One of her best looks so far imo. BDOTW.
