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.

Taylor Swift In Contrarian New York – Dinner at The Farm

Taylor Swift In Contrarian New York - Dinner at The Farm

Taylor Swift was spotted having dinner at The Farm in Beverly Hills, California on Thursday.

The songstress, who will be presenting at the VMAs on Sunday, looked super cute wearing a Contrarian ‘Colette’ v-back dress with a sweet strawberry print with a fit-and-flare silhouette.

Rose-pink bow-front Kate Spade New York ‘Kalle’ wedges, a Lauren Merkin ‘Stevie’ equestrian-style shoulder bag and black Ray-ban wayfarers accessorized her look, with her signature red lippie and a half-up, half-down style completing her look.

Taylor Swift In Elie Saab – Staples Center Press Conference

Taylor Swift In Elie Saab - Staples Center Press Conference

Taylor Swift attended a press event celebrating her breaking The Staples Center’s record of most sold-out shows for a solo artist, held at The Staples Center yesterday afternoon in Los Angeles, California.

The record-breaking feat sees her surpass Madonna and Justin Timberlake for seven sell-outs and Britney Spears at eight sell-out shows.

For the monumental occasion she wore an Elie Saab look, which consisted of a white long-sleeved blouse with a sheer lace detail from the Fall 2013 collection paired with black cuff-hemmed pleated shorts from the Resort 2013 collection.

The youthful easy-breezy look was styled with her signature red lip, a silver cuff and black peep-toes.

See, Elie Saab does do more than embellished or lace gowns.

Beauty Trend Spotting: Lining the Lower Eyelid

Beauty Trend Spotting Lining the Lower Eyelid

At the Fragrance Foundation Awards last week, Taylor Swift tried out one of the hottest spring makeup looks right now–lining only the lower lid with a hot turquoise eyeshadow. While blues and greens are hot shades for eyeshadow in general this spring and summer, the method of lining only the lower lid takes it to the next level of trendy.

Stars such as January Jones, Selena Gomez and Heidi Klum have all rocked this trend, and it was spotted at the Stella McCartney Spring 2013 RTW and Chanel Resort 2014 runway shows.

It’s easy to have fun with this trend–you can determine how bold you make your version by how bright a shadow you chose, and how thick you make the line.

To recreate the look on your own, simply dip an angled eyeliner brush in water, and then swipe it in your eyeshadow–NARS Duo Cream Eyeshadow in Burn It Blue is a great option, since you have two fabulous colour choices. Then, simply apply the color directly under your lower eyelashes.

The more water you use on your brush, the more intense the colour will appear, so play around with the right level of intensity for your personal style.

Taylor Swift In Hervé Léger by Max Azria – 2013 MuchMusic Video Awards

Taylor Swift In Hervé Léger by Max Azria - 2013 MuchMusic Video Awards

Taylor Swift attended the 2013 MuchMusic Video Awards held at Bell Media Headquarters in Toronto, Canada on Sunday evening.

It was yet another white frock for the country singer, but this time her white Herve Leger by Max Azria bandage dress featured black stripes so it was very much on trend for summer.

Her Pre-Fall 2013 dress, which is shorter than the version in the look book, was styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Karina’ caged booties and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Taylor’s signature red lippie was back, plus she also sported heavy kohl-rimmed eyes and tousled tresses to give her sexy look an edge.

Do you like this sidestep out of her comfort zone? Or is it still not enough for you?

Taylor Swift In Emilio Pucci – 2013 Fragrance Foundation Awards

Taylor Swift In Emilio Pucci - 2013 Fragrance Foundation Awards

It’s possible that there was a dress code for the 2013 Fragrance Foundation Awards at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City yesterday evening because, like Dita von Teese, Taylor Swift also opted for a light-coloured gown.

Taylor’s ethereal Emilio Pucci white silk-plissé halterneck gown with a sheer insert was styled with shimmering Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

While many of you might be saying “next” to seeing Taylor in yet another white gown, having a case of the déjà vus on groundhog day, check out her beautiful shimmering aqua eye makeup.

The singer, who was at the event celebrating the nomination of her fragrance ‘Wonderstruck Enchanted’, styled her banging ‘do into a simple twisted bun.

Do you love this look or have you already glazed over, wondering who is in the post below?

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.

Taylor Swift In Zuhair Murad – 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Taylor Swift In Zuhair Murad - 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Top Artist nominee Taylor Swift rocked her own shade of royal cerulean on the blue carpet of the 2013 Billboard Music Awards tonight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

It came as no shock that the glam-loving Taylor wearing a look from a king of glamour, Zuhair Murad. But, slightly more surprising was that she picked out this mini from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

She transitioned out of her normal goddess-gown mode to work this sparkling disco dress, which was awash in geometrically patterned sequins and featured sheer illusion panels at the front and back.

The uber-short frock showed off her never-ending legs, which only multiplied in length with her pair of sky-high, strappy Jimmy Choo ‘Suki’ sandals.

A bright pink lippie and a chicly effortless ponytail added a soft note to all the glitzy edge.
