Taylor Swift might not like a gold rush, but she clearly has no aversion to crystals.
The singer, 32, turned heads on the 2022 MTV VMAs red carpet on Sunday night at Newark’s Prudential Center, stepping out in a revealing bejeweled mini-dress.
Designed by Oscar de la Renta — a favourite of Swift’s, who also wore de la Renta to the 63rd Grammy’s when she took home Album of the Year for Folklore — the backless dress was resplendent with cutouts. The “Wildest Dreams” hitmaker kept things modest thanks to the dress’ lining which closely matched the color of her skin.
Swift paired the dress with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry and silver Christian Louboutin sandals embellished with crystals to match the dress.
Though not performing at the 2022 VMAs, Swift is nominated for several awards for “All Too Well: The Short Film.” Though Swift has said the short is definitely not a music video, it is nominated for Video of the Year, Best Longform Video, Best Direction (Swift directed the project), Best Cinematography (Rina Yang) and Best Editing (Ted Guard).
The “Look What You Made Me Do” songstress previously won the Best Direction VMA in 2020 for her video “The Man.” She was also nominated in the category for 2019’s “You Need to Calm Down” and 2021’s “Willow.”
