Taylor Swift is the reigning princess of country (and some might say pop) music, and she tends to dress the part. Her red carpet ensembles are beautiful, albeit a little predictable: sparkly, frilly and always super feminine.
Which is why it was surprising and refreshing to see Swift attend last night’s People’s Choice Awards in a sleek and understated gown. The sophisticated white Ralph Lauren dress featured a plunging neckline, and was dramatic and downright stunning in its simplicity. Gone were the metallic colors, beads and rhinestones, although the country star added some color to the look with turquoise Sutra earrings and Christian Louboutin heels.
Sans sequins and ball gown skirt, Swift’s style seemed to take a step forward with this look. Considering her recent split from 18-year-old Harry Styles, she seems to be telling the world she’s over high school—be it boys or dress styles—for good. And we couldn’t be happier.
