Taylor Swift In Monique Lhuillier – ‘The Giver’ New York Premiere

Taylor Swift In Monique Lhuillier - 'The Giver' New York Premiere
Taylor Swift crisscrossed coasts in the span of 24 hours, as she swept onto the scene in New York for the premiere of ‘The Giver,’ held at the Ziegfeld Theatre on Monday (August 11).

After impressing on Sunday night at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles with her charming two-piece ensemble, the starlet turned up the volume of sophistication in a gown, perfectly coordinated to the red carpet.

Plucked from Monique Lhuillier’s Resort 2015 collection, the colour-blocked design with its architectural silhouette and full draped skirt was a departure from her more sparkling, embellished style endeavors—and a welcome one at that.

She certainly has the model-esque height to pull off a gown of these proportions.

In keeping with the more directional vibe of the dress, she coaxed her long bob into a deep side-parted wave and wore a sizzling shade of crimson lip lacquer to echo the boldness of that cat-eye.

I do find myself wishing for a different shoe, though. The nude suede Casadei pumps fall flat, when this dress could have done well with a statement sandal. Ignoring that, this is a great, fresh look for her.

Sylva & Cie rings and Brumani ear climbers rounded out her look

    She looks gorgeous, head to toe. BDOTW worthy, I think.

    Nice look. Next. Zzz in the bigger picture.

    She looks great, but red ‘Nudist’ sandals would have been better.

    • Christine August 12, 2014 at 11:22 #

      Agreed.

    Simple, stylish, effortless. The shoes aren’t my favourite but she still looks gorgeous. BDOTW

    I agree about the shoes, but this is an amazing look. I usually cant stand Lhuillier’s designs but this is one I can really get behind. I love how the bodice fits Taylor and the skirt is really lovely. BDOTW worthy for sure!

    I love the dress, but as you said the shoes are off. It is the same as the dress Odeya Rush wore for the TCA, and the same sandal on the look book that is a much better match for the dress than a nude shoe…
    I don’t like the hairstyle either, but makeup is great.

  7. Papiki August 12, 2014 at 09:33 #

    Gorgeous! BDOTW worthy!

    Don’t like the shoes or the hair. The bangs, dislike them when they swoop, plastered, way down her forehead like that. Looks like an old man’s comb-over to me. Nice dress.

    Beautiful! It’s a great dress and she wears it incredibly well! I do wish she wore the same shoes that the model did but it’s a minor flaw and easily overlooked with how perfect everything else is.

  10. kane August 12, 2014 at 12:48 #

    She pulls it off although I’m not keen on the hair and red sandals would have been the invariably better choice.

    I’m usually not a fan, but she looks gorgeous in that dress! And…I don’t hate the shoes…I like the color. I originally thought they were embellished in some way, but I realize now it’s the irregular nap of the suede.

  12. Anne August 12, 2014 at 13:01 #

    I really like the design of the skirt. It’s simple, but the wide pleating and the flow of the fabric just really work with the geometry of the top. Alas, I agree on the shoes, though

  13. dee August 12, 2014 at 13:42 #

    I kinda like this and kinda don’t. Something looks off.

  14. Phoenix August 12, 2014 at 14:57 #

    Its a lovely dress. I love the structure of it. Taylor looks good as usual.

  15. pinksugar August 12, 2014 at 15:35 #

    Love the dress, she carries it well. But a red sandal would have made it perfection.

  16. Kathy August 12, 2014 at 15:37 #

    You’ll often hear me saying that the celebrity wearing the dress doesn’t pull if off the way the model in the lookbook or on the runway did, but here that’s not the case. I think Taylor wears it better than the model, shoe choice aside. Her hair & makeup are perfect and I love that it’s different from her TCA look the day before.

  17. Rachel August 12, 2014 at 16:56 #

    I love this H2t. It looks incredibly chic yet still romantic.

  18. Rachel August 12, 2014 at 17:28 #

    I love this h2t. The dress is chic and modern yet still quite romantic. Het hair and makeup are stunning imo

  19. Jai August 12, 2014 at 19:40 #

    Usually I can’t stand what she wears – too twee or sparkly. But I have to say, this is a good look. Agree about the shoes though.

  20. Badaboum August 12, 2014 at 21:26 #

    BDOTW for me, she looks like a doll but in a good way! I also saw pictures of her with the same gown but with a beige-ish trench coat over it and she still managed to look very precious.

  21. Liz August 13, 2014 at 00:08 #

    This is basically the same dress, I think by Derek Lam, that Diane Kruger wore a while back…but it is lovely and she looks good.

  22. Nat39 August 13, 2014 at 01:13 #

    I was about to scream Yes! and then I saw the shoes…impact ruined.

  23. lynni August 13, 2014 at 04:24 #

    Its from the same collection and almost the same design as Odeya Rush wore on TCA a day before. While I think Taylor looks good here, Odeya’s was a bit more glamorous and well…better than this one.

  24. Lula August 13, 2014 at 06:53 #

    Her style has matured so much.Taylor looks so elegant and chic. Plus I’m loving the color combo
