Taylor Swift In J. Mendel – 2013 Grammy Awards

Taylor Swift In j Mendel - 2013 Grammy Awards

Taylor Swift took to the red carpet at Sunday’s Grammy Awards at the L.A. Staples Center in a Greek goddess-like gown.

Nominated for three awards, the country singer looked sophisticated and sexy in a J. Mendel Spring 2013 confection with silver Jimmy Choo ‘Lance’ sandals.

The singer kept true to her latest colour obsession with white (proof: she wore white hot dresses recently to the People’s Choice Awards, Principales Music Awards, and the NRJ Music Awards) in a plunging neckline that was softened thanks to accordion pleats and a metallic beaded bodice.

The singer styled her gown with understated jewels in the form of a purple stone bracelet and floral stud earrings.

I was thrilled to see Taylor tone down the sophistication factor of the gown with a playful, youthful, and slightly messy braided updo and neutral makeup, save for a bit of edgy eyeliner.

    I’d love this look normally but when I originally saw her in this for the first time I genuinely thought I’d seen it before – so similar to her recent appearances – and therefore ruins my appreciation of how good she looks. She seems to be trying to push out this white angelic image and I’m sorry I’m not buying it.

    I love taylor and the dresses always look so lovely on her. It’s lovely, it’s very her, but that’s the thing, it’s ‘too’ her. Nothing that different that makes me lose my breath

    I’m not feeling it. The silver section in the middle seems to not lay right and my eyes are only drawn to that spot. The rest of the dress is plain boring and I feel like I’ve seen it a million times. Pretty hair and makeup though. 🙂

    Nice but overdone by her, next!

  6. Moxie February 11, 2013 at 12:56 #

    Love the hair and makeup. I wish she’d wear something that wasn’t white and plunging. I am not a fan of that silver t-bar.

    I agree with the déjà vu comments but she is doing it right. Stunning, once again.

    What’s wrong with deja vu if you look stunning in that!! Taylor Swift wows in this ivory j Mendel gown with silver straps neckline to show off her back and the thigh high split!! Love that nude makeup and even the braided hairstyle!! Delicate and unfussy, love that look from Taylor Swift!!

    Taylor swift is usually on point but this looks very bad… and I have a great feeling it is because she looks to skinny. she needs more vitamin E so she doesnt show her breast plate… poor thing

  10. ash February 11, 2013 at 07:31 #

    A little deja vu,but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the hair!

  11. Yeliz February 11, 2013 at 06:24 #

    It’s nothing new, but she looks gorgeous nonetheless.

  12. the ogre February 11, 2013 at 05:49 #

    i dunno. she’s been doing white to death. shes a young and vibrant person, so y not bring out some color on the red carpet. but i love the hair.

  13. Emma February 11, 2013 at 05:15 #

    snoooooze. surprise surprise, Taylor in a pretty gown with gold beading.

  14. Rebecca Z February 11, 2013 at 04:38 #

    Not loving this. Aging and one note. Next!

  15. EmmaWoodhouse February 11, 2013 at 03:54 #

    I love the hair, and I almost love the dress–but the plunge neck and open sides don’t work for me. I do love the flowing Grecian feel and silver touches. SO close and yet so far.

  16. Shaina February 11, 2013 at 03:22 #

    Gorgeous, perfect look but she has looked like this several times before. We are getting bored with her same tricks.

  17. Pedro February 11, 2013 at 03:02 #

    She looks like a model! Gorgeous

  18. arang February 11, 2013 at 02:42 #

    Love the understated jewelry, hair and makeup. The dress is pretty. But somehow they don’t gel for me. She looks pretty, but bland.

  19. Ella February 11, 2013 at 02:33 #

    I am getting tired of this white, plunging neckline phase Taylor finds herself in… looks good on her, yes, but enough is enough

  20. Kathy February 11, 2013 at 02:32 #

    Amazing! She makes the Greek goddess look modern and sophisticated, not clichéd. I adore the silver straps–they really add a special flair to the dress.

  21. ash February 11, 2013 at 02:26 #

    How many times have this look been done? Too many.

  22. Marybeth February 11, 2013 at 02:24 #

    This is a delightfully modern and youthful take on the Grecian-goddess theme. Beautifully done!

    • Beta February 11, 2013 at 10:02 #

      +1 I love it! she looks very elegant

      *falls asleep*

        Bored and she looks underfed in this dress.

  24. Christine February 11, 2013 at 02:21 #

    This is a no.

  25. Liz February 11, 2013 at 02:19 #

    It’s okay. She looks pretty, but its still kind of boring. She’s been wearing white a lot.

    On an unrelated note…I LOVE Justin Timberlake!!!

  26. AW February 11, 2013 at 02:16 #

    The dress has a “homemade” feel to it and the braid is bad.

  27. MaddyEliza February 11, 2013 at 02:15 #

    LOVE this look!! This is awesome. Perfect!!! Already one of my best dressed for sure.

  28. Nat39 February 11, 2013 at 02:10 #

    A bit of a deja vu indeed but still working, she is flawless and beautiful.

    • bas February 11, 2013 at 20:27 #

      +1. Could she shake things a little? yes, does this kind of look work for her nonetheles? definetely yes.
