While Taylor Swift is the princess of pop, she’s also the queen of red carpets! From Balmain to Carolina Herrera, the singer has worn big designers for big events like the Academy Awards and American Music Awards. Sadly, 2020 only granted Taylor a few opportunities to flex her red carpet fashion, given that a nationwide health crisis canceled and postponed most major Hollywood events — even the Met Gala. This means we’ll just have to look back at the many outfits that Taylor has already worn to accept awards, which have made red carpet history!
Our favorite entry for “best look of 2020” was Taylor’s Etro ballgown at the Golden Globe Awards in January. With bright yellow sunflowers splashed all over, the dress was an instant pick-me-up and reminded fans that Taylor has emerged into her happier Lover era. However, nothing was more show stopping than Taylor’s look at the 2016 Grammy Awards. Her two-piece Versace gown was totally dramatic and bright, with pops of pink and orange. Taylor showed off her figure — and her new bob — for the awards ceremony, with her dress fashioning a major slit up the front for the “Shake It Off” singer to flaunt her incredibly long legs. Given how gorgeous and eye-catching the dress was, Taylor chose to go minimalistic on her jewelry, wearing only a simple, sparkling necklace, subtle earrings and a few small rings.
But Taylor never shies away from trying something fun and new while staying true to herself. On Aug. 26, 2019, she hit the red carpet at the MTV Music Video Awards in another Versace garb: a funky blazer dress. The outfit was full of vibrant colors and patterns, which she wore over a hot pink bodysuit. She paired the look with sexy thigh-high boots, wore her hair parted down the middle with soft waves and added a pop with a red lip.Naturally, that wasn’t the only time Taylor used the MTV VMA red carpet as her own personal runway. Just years prior in 2014, Taylor rocked a stunning blue one piece that pushed the singer out of her comfort zone. The long sleeve and short hem of the outfit complimented Taylor’s figure and her coloration perfectly. Designed by Mary Katrantzou, the outfit was unlike anything fans had seen her in before and was a fun, flirty statement that was perfect for the occasion! Taylor has gone through such a fascinating style transformation over the years. Fans have loved to see her walk the red carpet and strut her stuff in glamorous gowns, chic jumpsuits and so much more.
