TAYLOR SWIFT STYLE — BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS
Now that we actually have at least a somewhat established aesthetic and fashion theme for the era, crafting a predictions post has become much easier to nail down.
And so, you’ll see a lot of pastels (obviously), iridescents, and boho airy fairy vibes amongst my choices.
- Ronald van der Kemp Spring 2019 Couture
This lovely piece was actually recommended to me by a friend over a month ago, but I bookmarked it for an occasion such as this. And I’m so glad I finally get to break it out now. The sheen of the skirt, the kaleidoscope of colours, and the metallic gold belt all come together into a gown that feels simultaneously fun and colourful but also sleekly cut and elegant. The perfect blend.
- Carolina Herrera Fall 2019
It’s possible that this gown, with its random swath of colour, could be deemed too similar in construction to her similar sherbet coloured J. Mendel gown but … it’s too beautiful to not choose. I feel that Taylor would likely shorten this to a tea length to make it more ladylike and Taylor-loves-vintage vibes. Add on some beautiful butterfly earrings and a coral manicure + glossy coral lip.
- Halpern Spring 2019
Futuristic fairy is what I’m going for with this lurex-looking shiny fabric mini by Halpern. I adore the more elegant neckline construction and cape and how it’s combated with a micro hemline — perfect and typical for a music awards show. The baby blue colour is also always a consistent winner on Taylor.
- Christian Dior Spring 2019 Couture
There were so many looks from the Dior runway that I could have chosen, in fact I very strongly considered Looks 34, 18, and 67. Ultimately, 34 felt too close to the Versace number she wore last year. This one won out because of its soft blush base, Maypole-esque ribbon detail, and the almost rattan/wicker-looking bodice which lended the boho vibes that I think (hope) Taylor will introduce more as the era continues to play out.
- Rosie Assoulin Fall 2019
I don’t know what it is but this dramatic gown with its unique bodice strap detailing and unexpected colour combination was so striking to me that it immediately stirred my heart. While I doubt Taylor would wear something like this to an occasion that is not quite as grand as the BBMAs it is still … so beautiful.
- Halpern Fall 2019
Yes, a different look from the Halpern collection. This one a little more disco leaning.
- Gabriela Hearast Spring 2019
I was inspired by Taylor’s Blake Lively A Simple Favor suit scene from “ME!” that this Gabriela Hearst blush suit immediately struck me. I love the way the jacket uniquely wraps and the tailored fit.
So what do you think of my predictions? What do you think Taylor will wear to the BBMAs?
