Taylor Swift In J. Mendel – ACM Awards 2014

Taylor Swift In J Mendel - ACM Awards 2014

Taylor Swift is known for her glamorous gowns with plenty of sparkle, so colour us all surprised by her look at the 49th Annual Academy Of Country Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday (April 6) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This J. Mendel ivory silk-crepe asymmetrical-slit and cut-out-shoulder-detail crop top and black thigh-high-slit skirt is just the switch up in style which most of you have been crying out for.

While I do love and share Taylor’s love for sparkling romantic gowns, I am also excited about the new look courtesy of J. Mendel.

The fact that this is a custom piece proves that she was looking for a change.

Even the signature red lip is not apparent. She styled her look with a Jennifer Fisher ring, Marina B bangle and ring, plus black leather Casadei ‘Trikini’ sandals with gold-tone hardware, and an M2Malletier clutch.

A refreshing change or are you not buying this look on Taylor?

    Never seen her look better.

    The close up is beautiful. The hairstyle really jazzes up quite a simple look- which she pulls off perfectly

    I’m not buying this.
    I’m one of the what feels like very very few people who actually like Taylor’s usual girly style, and I don’t like a single thing about this look. I dislike the curled fringe very much and I honestly think that the top and skirt essemble can’t possibly work on anyone but models.
    There’s just too much Karlie Kloss going on.

    I’m sorry to disagree, but each time I look at this, it seems worst! I can’t believe you like this!

  5. Carrie April 8, 2014 at 19:31 #

    I love it! Perfection.

  6. Kathy April 7, 2014 at 21:02 #

    What a change of pace from Taylor! The sparkly beaded gowns were nice, but this is even better. I love that she managed to show some skin & look edgy without trying too hard. I’ve never seen a crop top look this classy LOL! This girl knows exactly what she’s doing.

    She always works well with J Mendel. It looks both contemporary and elegant on her. Perhaps, Duchess Catherine should consider this designer.

  8. Ash April 7, 2014 at 19:53 #

    almost perfect, except for makeup and hair :/

  9. Inge April 7, 2014 at 19:39 #

    Finally something youthful and modern! This looks so great on her, BDOTW candidate for sure.

  10. Maria April 7, 2014 at 18:48 #

    LOVE the earrings. And for once a crop top works. It’s crisp, flatters her waist and makes for a clean cut yet fashion forward look. BDOTW

  11. Alina April 7, 2014 at 17:52 #

    One of the few times when she looks young, fresh and edgy. I really like this!

  12. pinksugar April 7, 2014 at 15:15 #

    Not a fan. It looks like she’s trying too hard to step outside her comfort zone. I find the whole look too chaotic and the hair/makeup look dated. I much prefer her flowing gowns or sequin dresses. As boring as they may be to some, they still work best on her.

  13. Rebecca Z April 7, 2014 at 15:02 #

    It is a bit of a jumble, but somehow it all works together. She looks gorgeous.

  14. amy April 7, 2014 at 14:49 #

    she’s totally working it. nice look

  15. Neli April 7, 2014 at 14:42 #

    She looks so pretty!

  16. d April 7, 2014 at 14:15 #

    great look

  17. dee April 7, 2014 at 14:08 #

    I love everything about this look. She looks incredible. BDOTW candidate.

  18. AnnaLee April 7, 2014 at 14:06 #

    I absolutely ADORE this. I got a bit tired of her Julien McDonald and Zuhair Murad mini dresses, but this is more like it. Perfect from head to toe. Early BDOTW contender!

  19. gabis April 7, 2014 at 13:37 #

    From the neck down it’s sheer perfection. I’m crazy loving that cropped top and skirt. I’m not however quite liking things from the neck up. Her hair looks weird and I would’ve preferred a more subtle eye makeup.

  20. Marcel April 7, 2014 at 13:28 #

    She looks fantastic. Top to toe perfection.

  21. kane April 7, 2014 at 13:18 #

    Simple and simply perfect!

  22. Tracy April 7, 2014 at 13:14 #

    Usually not moved by Taylor’s looks, but I find myself really liking this!

  23. Valissa April 7, 2014 at 12:52 #

    This is probably one of her best looks ever. She usually wears the same dress in different colours so this is refreshing! Everything is perfect from h2t…that hair and makeup is gorgeous! And the dress and skirt combo fit her perfectly.

  24. Denise April 7, 2014 at 12:51 #

    Exquisite! This look was styled to perfection, paying attention to every little detail. Her accessories (earrings, bracelet, sandals and clutch)will remain in my memory for a long time. BDOTW.

  25. Pedro April 7, 2014 at 12:43 #

    Perfection from h-2-t!

    My favourite at this event and one of her best looks ever!

  26. Cathy April 7, 2014 at 12:38 #

    Loving how simple yet sleek and chic this whole ensemble is. The Art Deco accessories, plus hair and makeup are really gorgeous

    • CreoleLady April 7, 2014 at 14:41 #


    • Camille April 7, 2014 at 18:39 #

      Exactly! Love the whole look. The earrings and shoes are divine! Hair and makeup are just perfect.

  27. Sanya April 7, 2014 at 12:30 #

    She looks amazing, powerful and sexy. One of her best outfits ever.

    • Mandy April 7, 2014 at 13:04 #


  28. Yeliz April 7, 2014 at 12:27 #

    Perfection. This ensemble looks absolutely amazing on her. She was my favourite at this event.

  29. Joy April 7, 2014 at 12:21 #

    I always love how it is so evident that Taylor loves fashion. This look is great and worn perfectly. She knows exactly what to add to accentuate her look. I’m not sure if it’s my favorite look, but she sells is beautifully and looks very grown up (in a good way) and fresh.

  30. Princess Chi Chi April 7, 2014 at 12:18 #

    hmm too many jarring and contrasting elements. That eyeshadow, hair, slit and crop-top are all baffling me. Perhaps it would have worked better had she chosen only one of them…

  31. Fiona-Brasil April 7, 2014 at 12:17 #

    Perfection!My favorites for this event : Taylor and Carrie Underwood.

  32. Christine April 7, 2014 at 12:16 #

    Hands down her best look to date! She looks marvelous. Like I cannot believe this is Taylor Swift. Gorgeous beyond belief.

    Love this.
