Taylor Swift In Reem Acra – 2011 American Music Awards

Taylor Swift took home many gongs at the 2011 American Music Award which were held at the Nokia Theatre LA Live in California last night, but will she take home your prize for Best Dressed?

The Artist of the Year looked gorgeous wearing a Reem Acra Spring 2012 gown.

Yes, the column gown stayed true to Swift’s signature style as it was covered in sequins, but can’t blame a girl for wanting to sparkle on her big night.

The sequins were the only signature, as Taylor opted for super-straight locks which she gathered over one shoulder into a ponytail.

She also opted for a nude lip colour and gorgeous emerald earrings.

Whilst the gown is predictable, the styling isn’t.

Does Taylor get a thumbs up from you for stepping halfway out of the box?

    Yes! A definite Thumbs Up! The first thing that came to my mind when i saw this was “Thank you Taylor!” The dress looks amazing..not very fairy tale-y and Kudos on the hair. I’m soo soo glad she did not opt for her curls!

    One word – boring.

    I can see the difference in the styling and I’m liking it but I’m not loving the overall look. Beautiful dress, beautiful earrings that work but something about the hair is not quite right but I guess that’s what you get for somplaining she always looks the same…lol. She does look pretty though. I guess her and Selena Gomez were going for the super glam red carpet looks at the AMAS.

    This dress reminds me so much of my senior prom dress. I appreciate the fact that she changed her hair an make up a bit though

    She was one of my best dressed. The styling is exquisite and the hair/makeup is perfection. The gown itself is stunning on her! She looks amazing from head to toe.

    Beautiful dress.Overall she looks great. Love the pop of emerald on the ears. Wish it were an inch higher at the bust. Thats a whole lotta space between the top of the dress and her head.

  10. DivaMom November 21, 2011 at 3:43 pm #

    It’s pretty but even better upon close up. That gown and her skin just glows. Although I have to say I’m annoyed with her “who meeeee?…I can’t belieeeeeeve I won yet another trophyyyyyy!!” reactions. Boo and hiss, Taylor. That coy girl routine’s getting old!

  11. Rebecca Z November 21, 2011 at 3:39 pm #

    It is a gorgeous dress and she looks lovely in it. Like the styling changes. Wish she’d do a better job with mascara.

    She looks nice but I am not wowed.

  14. Linda November 21, 2011 at 2:09 pm #

    A HUGE thumbs up, FC. I LOVE the hair and makeup departure, which for me is very, very refreshing and makes me forgive a predictable (although beautiful) gown. The shoes are amazing and I LOVE the earrings too. For once, I’m in love with her look. This is a very good baby step in the right direction to diversify her look.

    • maria November 21, 2011 at 2:55 pm #

      i agree. she looks great with the sleek hair and the green earrings pop. Kudos for improved styling

  15. Hannah November 21, 2011 at 2:06 pm #

    I could totally look past tehsequins here, because it isnt so completely similar to allof her other many, many gowns she has worn. Also, the hair, makeup and unexpected green pop of colour via the earrings were SO refreshing.
    Her shoes are jimmy choo “Dart” sandals 🙂

    • Parvati November 22, 2011 at 12:54 pm #

      I agree. And I especially love the shoes! Oh, I knew they had to be Jimmy Choo! They’re perfect!

  16. Molly November 21, 2011 at 1:49 pm #

    This is stunning. I really love her hair too. This dress looked phenomenal when she walked on stage and im glad that she she finally gave us a happy medium of wearing what she wants with hair that everyone else wants 😉

  17. oksana November 21, 2011 at 1:48 pm #

    i liked it, not awesome but good. not completely typical of her for me because of the earrings and the hair. hair is beautiful and very unusual of her.

  18. Emi November 21, 2011 at 1:15 pm #

    I love sequins, but I would never wear sequined dresses all the time. So, beautiful – deja vu – dress, and as I wrote before, she always looks like a wax work. Also, there’s something about her expression which is kinda creepy…

  19. roxana November 21, 2011 at 12:38 pm #

    a living beautiful doll!

  20. dunzoo November 21, 2011 at 12:24 pm #

    that’s very her.. great dress but the ponytail is poorly done

  21. Toria November 21, 2011 at 11:40 am #

    If I was her I’d wear tons of sequins as well. I think she looks stunning!

  22. Nat November 21, 2011 at 11:37 am #

    Sequins once again, but what a beautiful, beautiful dress!
    Not so sure about the hair and those earrings, tho…

  23. Ian November 21, 2011 at 11:06 am #

    I actually really like this dress on her, even though it was predictable. It looked stunning on her.

    I just kinda wish, as a really big fan of hers, that she’ll wear pants or a jumpsuit on the red carpet for once 🙂

    • Jackie November 21, 2011 at 5:58 pm #

      A sequin jumpsuit would be amazing and we all know she has the body to pull it off!

      • Linda November 21, 2011 at 6:26 pm #

        Yes, that would be awesome!

      • Ian November 22, 2011 at 8:34 am #


  24. DanDan November 21, 2011 at 10:52 am #

    I think so what she wears this type of dress alot but she always looks amazing. If she tried something different and looked a mess people would only slate her

    • Jackie November 21, 2011 at 5:59 pm #

      Agreed. I really like the straight hair though and that was probably a big step for her.

  25. Felicia November 21, 2011 at 10:41 am #

    I’m so used to Taylor dressing like this now. So boring, so average. Just once I would love her to blow me away with an amazing look! But I’ve given up hope on that ever happening….

  26. Ade November 21, 2011 at 10:22 am #

    Well it’s like pulling teeth with Taylor so I’ll take whatever change (no matter how minimal) I can get

  27. bee7 November 21, 2011 at 10:16 am #

    deja vu. however i did appreciate her straight hair

  28. Elisa November 21, 2011 at 9:54 am #

    I don’t care if she always wears sequins. Wouldn’t we all do the same if we could get away with it? 😀

    • Fashion Critic November 21, 2011 at 9:55 am #

      I would

    • Natalie November 21, 2011 at 9:56 am #

      Haha, that’s true!

    • Jones19 November 21, 2011 at 10:03 am #

      I love sequins so I adore seeing Taylor on the red carpet, her styling is gorgeous here!

    • Victoria November 21, 2011 at 11:16 am #

      Totally agree with you because I would do exactly that. 😀

  29. Lena November 21, 2011 at 9:39 am #

    Snooze. When I see her hair pulled off her forehead and Taylor wearing a non-predictable princess gown, I’ll enjoy her.

    • Akio November 23, 2011 at 7:03 pm #

      Colors match but the combination is a little dull. She could have had it all.
