Taylor Swift has always been one of the most consistent style stars on the red carpet, taking an “if it ain’t broke, why fix it?” approach to event dressing. There’s nothing wrong with that, but that just means it’s an even huger deal than usual when the singer strays away from her go-to look. And at tonight’s Billboard Music Awards, Taylor decided to go against both her trademark color palette (red, white, silver, gold) AND her signature silhouettes (long gown, princess frock), showing off a side we rarely get to see. Perhaps coordinating with the blue carpet, Tay sported a sparkly blue minidress by Zuhair Murad with sheer panels at the top. Paired with stappy black heels and working major leg, is this Taylor putting her own spin on the Las Vegas locale?! We’re betting yes.
With a crazy eyecatching dress like this one, it’s always best to keep the rest of the look relatively pared-down. Taylor opted for a bold kohl-rimmed eye and pink makeup, and practically no jewelry except earrings. It’s a good look for the star, who’s already nabbed a whopping six trophies this year before the show aired! And judging from her outfit, it looks like Taylor’s night is going to get EVEN better.
