Love that Look: Taylor Swift in J. Mendel

Alright, it’s a tad old news, but I never expected to see Taylor Swift wearing anything other than princess-style gown and hair at award shows. So I was pleasantly surprised to see Taylor sporting this ultra sexy white cut-out gown by J.Mendel from the Fall 1012 RTW collection at the ACM Awards. Perhaps she learned a thing or two from Anna, when she was featured in Vogue back in February.

Though I gotta say, the hair and makeup is superb with this new sophisticated look. Subtle waves and straight bangs suit you, Taylor!

Lookout for the cut-out trend in the upcoming seasons!

The Look:

  1. J. Mendel White Cut-Out Gold Trim Dress, Fall 2012 RTW
  2. Christian Louboutin Summerissima Platform Shoes
  3. Lorraine Shwartz jewellery

Some Changes I would make:

  • Switch the Louboutin shoes for closed-toe/peep-toe white and gold strappy shoes or Diane Von Furstenberg’s Venus Two-tone platform sandals (see below).
  • Because the dress is  sharp, clean-cut, and a bit futuristic. I think that perhaps a plain fitted gold cuff would add a modern touch without disrupting the minimalism of this look

As much as I would love to own these Louboutin platforms, I don’t think that this was the best choice of shoes to match the dress.

Love the straps, but perhaps a closed-toe or peep-toe detail would be better suited or if the nude pink front strap was white.


I might have opted for DVF Two-tone Venus shoes:
