There’s nothing we love more than when celebs really stick to a theme, and at tonight’s “Punk: Chaos to CoutureMet Gala, Taylor Swift ditched her typically soft and girly look for a darker, edgier ensemble. Her glam-rock J. Mendel gown featured lace cut-outs along the torso and side (um, is this seriously channeling Gwyneth Paltrow’s Antonio Berardi side cleavage look from a couple weeks ago or WHAT?) paired with an out of this WORLD gold embellished collar shoulder-piece. T Swift didn’t need many accessories with this show-stopping dress, so she kept it simple with a glittery cuff and matching gold and black box clutch. We only got a tiny peek at her feet, but it looks like she sported strappy black sandals and black polish. #WERK

Taylor knocked it out of the park with her fiercely gorgeous beauty game. She pulled her crimped waves back into a messy half updo paired with seriously smoldering smoky eyes, nude lips and jet-black nails. She added a swipe of shimmery bronzer on her cheeks to give her that dewy glow, and we’re kiiind of obsessed with this look. See, Tay? You can TOTALLY pull off kohl-rimmed eyeliner.
