Taylor Swift is opening the 2018 American Music Awards—but first, she made sure to give us something to talk about on the red carpet. The performer arrived at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles in an eye-catching mirrored ensemble, courtesy of Balmain, that was a master class in disco dressing.
The full futuristic look consisted of a long-sleeved, mock-necked mini dress entirely covered in platinum, reflective tiles; plus matching thigh-high stiletto boots. Swift accessorized with a few dramatically oversize rings and large, sparkly rectangular hoop earrings.
Check it out.
Swift wore her honey blond hair in a sleek updo, with her bangs just skimming her eyelashes and a slight bouffant in the back. Her makeup was similarly ’60s-inspired: She sported a peachy blush on her cheeks and a shimmery highlighter along the tops of her cheekbones, a soft pinkish-nude lipstick, and a bold cat-eye flick of black liquid eyeliner along her top lash line.
Swift was among the first to walk the 2018 AMAs red carpet, since she’s scheduled to open the show with her first-ever televised performance of “I Did Something Bad.” And we know she’s a big fan of Balmain’s: In May 2015, she wore a chic white cutout jumpsuit by the designer to the Billboard Music Awards; and more recently, in her Reputation album cycle, she’s sported a few looks from the French fashion house in her music videos.
Of course, the look wouldn’t be complete without a snake reference… Peep at her jewelry.
