Taylor Swift In Elie Saab – 2013 Brit Awards

Taylor Swift In Elie Saab - 2013 Brit Awards

Let me guess: you saw Taylor Swift in Elie Saab in the title for tonight’s 2013 Brit Awards and you immediately thought the popstrel was wearing an embellished gown.

With her MO, I wouldn’t blame you, but on this occasion she wore a sleek Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2013 gown – sans sequins.

The gorgeous black sleeveless gown with sheer panels in the shoulders and skirt was, however, accented with a gold belt for a touch of bling.

Smouldering without her signature red lip colour, the singer opted for neutral makeup with smoky eyes and a dark manicure.

Putting my Elie Saab bias to one side, she was one of the best on the night.

    Wow! I love this look from her sleek hair and bangs, simle makeup and simple and elegant dress. This is Taylor best look yet. She looks stunning.

    Adios sequins, hola simplicity!! Taylor Swift ditched her favorite sequinned outfit for this Elie Saab black sleeveless gown with sheer panels along neckline and skirt!! Love her neutral makeup and luscious waves and that friggin-amazing I’m Sexy & I Know It posing complete this BDOTW Worthy outfit!! Kudos, Taylor Swift!! Her “STYLES” are amazing!!

      LOL, at that “styles” joke 😉 and I agree 100% with you!

    • Linda February 21, 2013 at 8:47 pm #

      Wowza! Those are killer shoes. I want to know who helped style Taylor for this event. She needs to keep them on the payroll.

    Wow Wow Wow!

    She looks PERFECT!

    not a fan and it has nothing to do with swift, i just don’t like the design, it’s lazy.

  6. Jones19 February 21, 2013 at 11:14 am #

    Say what you will about Taylor Swift but one thing no one can deny, she’s always consistent on the red carpet and always brings her A game. Stunning!

  7. Beta February 21, 2013 at 8:32 am #

    easily my favourite of the night

  8. the ogre February 21, 2013 at 6:30 am #

    heheehe! so if its not white then it’s black. but a good black i guess. she’s working it really well. i like!

  9. Louise February 21, 2013 at 3:54 am #

    Finally, something really different! And she looks amazing, some aspects of it is still really her though which is really good! Love it!

    simply the best.BDOTW.

  12. Aline February 20, 2013 at 11:50 pm #

    Yes, yes, yes! This is perfection! Nieves found worthy competition for BDOTW!

  13. Mana February 20, 2013 at 11:38 pm #

    I don’t know where she stands now, (the cutie country girl or the sexy-not-trashy-yet girl). I bet she doesn’t know it either. Anyway she looks good.

  14. TeaAtTwo February 20, 2013 at 10:14 pm #

    I don’t like how high up the sheer panels go but she does look age appropriately sophisticated. And yes, the black does seem refreshing. Feels a bit weird typing that given that that’s so many stars wear too much black.

  15. shap_half February 20, 2013 at 9:53 pm #

    She looks good, but she’s starting to look the same in most of her red-carpet looks. I’m not surprised to see this from her. It’s another sexy, form-fitting gown.

  16. EmmaWoodhouse February 20, 2013 at 9:43 pm #

    Sadly, it’s a no. The sheer panels in the skirt do it in for me. If they were white (and though the sheer shoulder inserts are fine, they could have been white too for a chic modern look) I would love this look. She styled it well and everything, but I can’t like it because of that. 🙁

  17. arang February 20, 2013 at 9:38 pm #

    Love this. It’s got more oomph to it than her usual, but it’s not too much for her either. Excellent.

  18. Moxie February 20, 2013 at 9:05 pm #

    No sparkles and no white! Who’d have thought her capable? She looks great.

  19. Ella February 20, 2013 at 8:55 pm #

    In my opinion, I find Taylor trying WAY TOO HARD to move away from her “country cutie” status. Granted, there aren’t any sequins and she looks great, but I am finding a lot of similarities in her and, say, in Selena Gomez right now.

    I am all for fashion evolution, but this is too much for me.

    • Lou February 20, 2013 at 10:16 pm #

      Yes!! I was going to write the exact same thing on a Selena Gomez post.Their style doesn’t really Come naturally,trying to throw away the ‘good girl’ image so the request that every outfit has either slits,cut outs plunging necklines and are by ‘sexy’ ‘daring’ designers like Versace.

    • Kathy February 20, 2013 at 11:20 pm #

      Here’s how I see it: Taylor has made the transition from teenager to adult quite gracefully and successfully (and not drastically at all) while Selena’s public image has yet to catch up to her. Selena is wearing designers like Atelier Versace, which is a bit too mature for her. A lot of her looks DO suit her, which is nice, but I find that Taylor is just more aware of what works for her.

      • ash February 21, 2013 at 1:31 am #

        I’m with Kathy.

  20. NooG February 20, 2013 at 8:53 pm #

    I’m no Taylor fan but she gets an A+ here.

  21. Chistine February 20, 2013 at 8:52 pm #

    She looks great. Lovely dress.

  22. Noemi February 20, 2013 at 8:40 pm #

    The dress is gorgeous and the styling perfect.

  23. Julie A February 20, 2013 at 8:34 pm #

    The best she has ever looked. Flawless.

  24. Angie February 20, 2013 at 8:29 pm #

    Flawless! Another BDOTW contender IMO. I always like her style, but sometimes she is too predictable and monotonous. This time she surprised me in the best way. This is perfection (and not white!!).

  25. SilentVisitor February 20, 2013 at 8:23 pm #

    Finally, an Elie Saab done right. After the disaster of Goya Toledo, I can only thank Taylor Swift……..She looks just perfect….

  26. Miguel Angel February 20, 2013 at 8:21 pm #

    I think it’s great but I don’t see any different and exceiting from this look. And also I’m feeling like I’ve already seen this shape on her.

  27. Anne February 20, 2013 at 8:10 pm #

    Hot! Taylor so rarely wears black that it makes this extra dramatic and extra saucy.

  28. Yeliz February 20, 2013 at 8:09 pm #

    Lol, your guess was right FC, I thought she’s wearing another embellished ES gown. This look surprised me and I have to say I love it. It’s simple but amazing. Could be my best dressed of the night.

  29. dee February 20, 2013 at 8:08 pm #

    This is fabulous.

  30. Nat39 February 20, 2013 at 8:04 pm #

    Perfection(!!). Sleek, sexy, modern, statuesque, Taylor is carrying off this look perfectly. Love it.
