Taylor Swift had an amazing weekend. Aside from receiving the Big Help Award from First Lady Michelle Obama at the 2012 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, she took home the Entertainer of the Year award at the Academy of Country Music Awards. Also, she did all of this while wearing glorious white dresses with gold accents. Sounds like your standard weekend with some designer duds, immaculate hair, and hobnobbing with the First Lady of the United States thrown in for good measure, huh? Seriously, though, we need to talk about these dresses because WHOA, there were two sides to this good-deed-doin’ country music angel—sweet and edgy.
For the Kids Choice Awards, Swift wore a short, flouncy Maria Lucia Hohan dress in a delicate shade of vintage-tinged ivory. While the bodice was wrapped tightly in white satin ribbon, the rest of the dress fanned out like a delicate ’50s confection tipped out in strappy Nicholas Kirkwood gold heels. (#WANT) We love that it was a light ’n’ breezy ensemble paired with a simple updo and the prettiest shade of pink lips. This is the kind of look that impresses mothers of boyfriends, am I right?
Tay’s second dress, however, was all about full-out, camera flashing, stop-the-presses GLAMOURRRR. Arriving to the Country Music Awards in a fitted white fall 2012 J. Mendel gown with gold accents above the bosom and along the train, there was the added feature of mayjah dramz in the back courtesy of deep cutouts that exposed Miss Swift’s entire back. This total red carpet slaying number was paired with Tay’s gorge new fringed mane, which was blown out to perfection and framing a strong eye, nude lip makeup game. Definitely a more edgy look for T-Swift, but we’re hand-clapping all ovah the place and would describe this as the kind of look that impresses friends of boyfriends. What’s more, not only did Swift intend to bring cancer patient Kevin McGuire as her date to the Academy of Country Music Awards, when he couldn’t make it due to being hospitalized, she tweeted, “Just talked to Kevin McGuire. He’s not well enough to join me at the ACMs. Please keep him in your thoughts. I’ll make it up to you, Kevin!” You guys, not only is Tay the best entertainer of the year, the biggest helper of the year, and pretty much the best dressed person of this weekend, she’s also the SWEETEST in the world ever.
