Miss Americana poster | January 15, 2020 

Free People ‘Softly Structured Tunic’ – $148.00

For those not able to make it to Sundance for opening night on January 23, in todays confirmed news, Taylor’s documentary Miss Americana will be hitting Netflix screens on January 31. 

From the poster and that distinctive sleeve stitching, I’m guessing this is the same black turtleneck that she wore while in Australia back in October 2018.

What I find most striking about this minimalist poster is its similarity to a television political drama poster. Which is of course a particular note given the song its title is taken from “Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince” and the political narratives woven into its lyrics.

Taylor Swift attends the 77th Annual Golden Globes on January 5, 2020.

77th Annual Golden Globe Awards | Los Angeles, CA | January 5, 2020

Lorraine Schwartz jewelry

A longtime go-to. Taylor’s jewels for the evening were courtesy of Lorraine Schwartz. The two-tone earrings are stunning, but I would have dropped both rings from her right hand. 

While we have a closeup here, the hair and makeup are both lovely and simple. I’d guess that the soft tendrils and general softness of her updo are a nod to the fun vibrancy of the gown’s print. I think a more coral lip here would have been a nice touch. 

Worn with: Etro gown

77th Annual Golden Globe Awards | Los Angeles, CA | January 5, 2020

Etro custom gown 

While I was correct that Taylor would be dressed in a princess gown, a floral print such as this was not what I had predicted. 

With this in mind, I find the drama and volume of the skirt to be beautiful in movement and in stillness and is perfect for the Globes. The open back is one that Taylor has also previously favoured at the Globes (in Donna Karan, 2013) and is a sensual touch to the simpler front. And the cutout is a fun, modern tweak. 

However, I would strongly have preferred a solid colour or a different floral print if a print was necessary. Can we take a moment to pause and consider the impact of this gown rendered in a golden yellow or orange? As is this reads a bit tropical vacation to me. 

What do you think of Taylor in Etro? 

In the interest of full fashion landscape, model Karolina Kurkova recently wore a very similar pink Etro design to Cannes. 


Taylor has attended the Golden Globes on two previous occasions, both times wearing a full-length ball gown. I fully anticipate a very formal, very princess look on the Globe red carpet. With that in mind, I fell back on what I would consider more “safe” designers and dramatic but classically beautiful silhouettes. I don’t anticipate the Globes being an opportunity where Taylor will experiment or try something new or edgy or different. I expect this to be a night with a full-length tulle gown.

That said, of course, I couldn’t help but let my imagination get away from me a bit.

Here we go.

  • J. Mendel Spring 2020
    Classic, soft, and a slight homage to the world of dance (and by extension, musicals and theatre) with this ballet slipper pink gown. An old Taylor standby designer, this is everything lovely and feminine and delicate. I’d love to see some huge purple gemstone knocker earrings and a high gloss berry lip with this.
  • Alexander McQueen Resort 2020
    You’ll see where I quickly diverged away from traditional princess here. Set against a sheer black base, this look is little bit edgier, a little bit harder. The structure at the shoulders provides strength and the allover floral print is very Taylor indeed. I hope we get a strong smoky eye here and a wash of red stain at the lips.
  • Oscar de la Renta Spring 2020
    Back on the princess track. Given her hot OdlR streak, I wanted to provide an easy potential lob that would make for a very slideshow look indeed. The shade of blue would offset Taylor’s eyes beautifully. She has also opted for colour on both previous occasions she attended this event so I’m hoping for another colourful outing — hence why three of these looks are a colour.
  • Sally LaPointe Pre-Fall 2020
    One of the most memorable recent fashion moments for me at the Globes was Emma Stone’s Lanvin jumpsuit back in 2015. Given that it’s still making an impression five years later tells me that sometimes going for a jumpsuit at an event where gowns are the norm is how you stand out. This look is a little bit disco and a lot of glam. Which is perfect because Taylor Magpie Swift has not yet met a sequin she doesn’t love. The neckline is also a fun continuation/callback to the asymmetric jumpsuit she wore at the Women In Music event. This jumpsuit is begging for a pair of strappy sandals, ear climbers, and pale pink makeup.

Favourite Outfits of 2019: Taylor Swift Style

Photoshoot – Billboard

I accurately summed it up when the cover of this shoot was released. If there was a way to sum up the Lover era in fashion … a “bright pink ruffled cotton candy gown, belted by a thick heavy black belt and finished off with an oversized blazer” was sure to do it.
