Taylor Swift In Carolina Herrera - 2014 Golden Globes

Taylor Swift made a sweeping entrance onto the red carpet at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, hosted at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday night (January 12).

Nominated for best original song for the upcoming film, ‘One Chance,’ the singer took her own chance by debuting a new look for her. On this night, gone was the predictable sparkle and shine, the girly-glam and the occasional Grecian goddess-influenced flair.

In its place, a drama-filled Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2014 strapless gown—delightfully coloured in cherry-red, save for the slice of edgy black that outlined the sweetheart bodice.

The bustling, ball-gown skirt, which extravagantly trailed behind her, was asymmetrically gathered and draped at the right side, leaving me to wonder if this might present a bit of a challenge once seated.

No matter, it was a lovely entrance that still came across as rather effortless—perhaps due in part to the fact that it wasn’t cluttered by one-too-many jewels. Beautiful gemstone earrings peeked through behind her retro curls, while a statement ring provided an edgier sparkle. Her standard kohl-lined cateye and ruby-red lip were also present and accounted for.

Did Taylor’s slightly new style direction win you over?
