Taylor Swift In Elie Saab Couture – 2013 CMA Awards

Taylor Swift In Elie Saab Couture - 2013 CMA Awards

Taylor Swift opted to go big at the 47th annual CMA Awards held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee yesterday evening.

Sweeping the floor with the competition, Taylor wore a big, bold gown from her go-to designer Elie Saab.

Her Fall 2013 wine-coloured couture gown with light embellishments, a full skirt was styled with a matching lip colour – naturally, as this is her signature – with nude Jimmy Choo ‘Logan’ sandals and dazzling Lorraine Schwartz jewels, which didn’t upstage her gown.

A low chignon completed her look.

Some of you struggle with Taylor’s style as you often find her too predictable. What are your thoughts on this stunning look?

    Impeccable and so stunning!

  2. TL November 8, 2013 at 00:28 #

    This will be one of my BDOTY

    Taylor looks absolutely stunning, Elie Saab is definitely always .. brilliant.
    But this is so boring. I wanna scream. She’s too predictable and yes.. Again, she looks stunning. When you’re entering that many red carpets, why not try to go for something more edgy perhaps? At least not, wear “the same thing” all over again and again.

      She has worn edgier/bolder looks, like her gowns at the most recent People’s Choice Awards, Golden Globes, and Met Gala. I know she has a reputation for wearing only classic princess gowns, but she does have a much broader style range than that.

  4. Prudence November 7, 2013 at 22:16 #

    she looks soooooo old. I would love to see queen Elisabeth in this. not a good look at all.

  5. CD November 7, 2013 at 21:48 #

    she’s perfect

  6. Kathy November 7, 2013 at 21:36 #

    Stunning! Taylor looks so regal and elegant. I’ll never tire of seeing her in red, she always pulls it off beautifully. The embellishments here are eye-catching but not overdone. This is the epitome of a modern-day princess.

    I like it ( I mean it’s Elie Saab what’s not to like???) but I do have two problems with it. That someone else might have done more justice to the dress and that in the end of the day I can’t recall any of Taylor Swift’s outfits.

    BDOTW and BDOTY worthy.

  9. Nat39 November 7, 2013 at 18:34 #

    I’m blown away. Simply spectacular – the colour, the dramatic full skirt…Wow. BDOTW worthy, hands down.

  10. Anna November 7, 2013 at 17:24 #

    Like the dress but it’s predictably red.

  11. Rebecca Z November 7, 2013 at 16:09 #

    Spectacular if a tad predictable. I get this dress for this occasion, but I have been enjoying her recent experiments with fashion, and I hope they don’t stop.

  12. Jessica November 7, 2013 at 15:23 #

    I love this entire look! She looks beautiful! BDOTW and definitely on my list for BDOTY

  13. the ogre November 7, 2013 at 15:10 #

    The dress is lovely but Taylor looks a bit overwhelmed by it. Looks like the dress devoured her whole. It’s a great look but this gown would’ve looked better on someone with more presence.

  14. Moxie November 7, 2013 at 14:56 #


  15. Caro Chanel November 7, 2013 at 14:39 #

    Did she not wear a bra? I can see the shape of her boobs. I like the dress, like it ln Taylor but I’ve seen her look better.

  16. dee November 7, 2013 at 14:11 #

    I think she looks beautiful.

  17. Lauren November 7, 2013 at 13:53 #

    I’m in awe…not quite BDOTY worthy, as my list is already full, but stunning

  18. Beth Rodrigues November 7, 2013 at 13:26 #

    Taylor was exquisite in this Elie Saab gown. She moved on the stage with confidence, she owned this dress, and when being honored with a major CMA go big. BDOTW? Absolutely!

  19. Marta November 7, 2013 at 13:24 #

    She looks stunning.
    I don’t understand why are people saying she’s overdressed.
    Everyone is dressed into couture gowns, and btw CMA are her Oscars.

    • Nicole November 7, 2013 at 14:46 #

      Couldn’t agree with you more – was about to write your comment about the CMAs being her Oscars 🙂

  20. Namel November 7, 2013 at 13:19 #

    It is fine but i don’t love it. The back of the dress is amazing but the front is dull. It’s nothing new from Elie or Taylor. If the skirt was less wide i think i would have loved it more.

    • Lauren November 7, 2013 at 13:53 #

      Eh? The front is dull? Did you look at the close ups

  21. EmmaWoodhouse November 7, 2013 at 13:19 #

    My jaw DROPPED. I tend to pin a lot to my BDOTY contender list, kind of a “oh, I like this look–it’s on my long list”–but THIS is SO BDOTY worthy. This is perfection, and my favorite look from her in…a long time, and maybe ever? I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS!

  22. Edward November 7, 2013 at 13:14 #

    I love this. BDOTW for me!

  23. Christine November 7, 2013 at 13:12 #

    Wow! Love this look on her. Definitely BDOTW wowrthy.

  24. maria November 7, 2013 at 12:29 #


  25. Tess November 7, 2013 at 12:20 #

    Gorgeous. I have no complaints here, she looks amazing.

    • admmgz November 7, 2013 at 22:36 #


  26. Stel November 7, 2013 at 11:58 #

    Really really beautiful! The dress is one of my favourites of this collection.. But Ι would like the model’s make up..

  27. Laura November 7, 2013 at 11:53 #

    Of course the dress is amazing. But girl, you were attending a country music ceremony, not the Oscars. Elegance is also being able to drees appropiate depending the place you are supposed to go. So this dress in this ceremony is totally out of place.

    • amy November 7, 2013 at 12:10 #

      Yeah, too dramatic for the CMA

    • Alina November 7, 2013 at 15:30 #

      Couldn’t agree more!

    • J November 7, 2013 at 17:53 #

      Disagree. The CMAs are the most prestigious awards in country music and Taylor was honoured with an Outstanding Achievement award last nigh. Lots of legends (Mick Jagger, Julia Roberts) presented to her on stage and on video.

      • AnnaLee November 7, 2013 at 18:47 #

        I also disagree. It is one of the most important award show for country music artists. And I would love to see more of these beautiful gowns on the red carpet! Seriously, there are all these magnificent haute couture dresses and when we FINALLY see one on the red carpet, people are complaining that it is over the top… 🙁

    • Ash November 7, 2013 at 18:58 #

      CMA is the biggest award of country music, it’s like a counrty music’s Oscar. and she was given the pinnacle award at the event, which is the highest award of CMAs. it’s a noble moment and the dress is perfect for the situation. NOT OVERDRESSED AT ALL.

    • Ash November 7, 2013 at 19:02 #

      p.s., and she knew she’s gonna receive this award earlier this week, so I believe she chose this dress for fitting the moment.

  29. Denise November 7, 2013 at 11:34 #

    OMG ! And I don’t say that often for Taylor. Just found my best dressed for the week. And what a week it has been !

  30. Tracy November 7, 2013 at 11:28 #

    I’m usually the one to find Taylor’s style safe and edging on the boring side, so I’m delighted with this look. She’s pulling all the stops here. Could do with a mani soon though haha

  31. Lashae November 7, 2013 at 11:26 #

    Love the dress but not on Taylor. She has no presence whatsoever in it.

  32. zineb November 7, 2013 at 11:22 #

    This is a Cannes like look, too great for the CMA lol

  33. kane November 7, 2013 at 11:14 #

    Wow, what a colour! I’m undecided though if she pulls it off. Her usual icy detachment pose doesn’t really go with fiery red.

  34. Pablo November 7, 2013 at 11:09 #

    Absolutely in love with the gown and with Taylor in it!
    BDOTW is gonna be tough this week!

    • Fiona-Brasil November 7, 2013 at 15:58 #


    • Yeliz November 7, 2013 at 22:47 #

      BDOTW will really be tough this week. Taylor looks enchanting, I have no complaints. Such a gorgeous and dramatic look.

  35. Nicole November 7, 2013 at 11:03 #

    I think she looks gorgeous – the CMAs are the perfect place to go big!

  36. AnnaLee November 7, 2013 at 11:01 #

    I love it. The dress speaks for itself, it’s so gorgeous!!! Best dressed of the event and BDOTW worthy in my opninion 🙂
    The red is just so gorgeous, and the back of the dress… I really really really like it!!
