Taylor Swift has been going through a serious style metamorphosis lately, using the red carpet to debut totally new looks, like her Grammy hairstyle. Transforming from her early days as a country darling to her dominance as a pop queen, Tay has been testing out a new look that’s completely unexpected for her. We’re talking about the new full-on rock + roll glam vibe she first debuted at Coachella. With her most recent red carpet appearance and her second Apple Music video release, however, it seems like Tay’s gothic chic rock ‘n’ roll butterfly transformation is complete.
1. Met Gala rocker chic: Ditching her usual fire-engine-red lipstick, Taylor showed up to the Met Gala with a look that some loved, some hated and pretty much everyone was talking about. Distinctly gothic chic, to go with her snakeskin-patterned black-and-white Prada dress, Tay choose a stark dark lipstick that was a major contrast with her icy blonde hair.
2. Channeling some old school rockers: Making the world smile (and, we’ll admit it, totally lol!) at her latest Apple Music Commercial, Taylor pumps up the jams and rocks out old-school style. Jumping up on the furniture, flailing at her hair and, of course, singing the lyrics at the top of her lungs, this is totally Jagger-esque. That fitted blazer doesn’t hurt either.
3. Going full Debbie Harry: As if we couldn’t possibly love Tay any more, she’s now taking a style note from another favorite lady of the stage — none other than Debbie Harry (lead singer of legendary ‘70s punk band Blondie). Attending the 64th Annual BMI Pop Awards, where she took home the Pop Songwriter of the Year and the first-ever Taylor Swift Award, she stunned the crowd in a velvet Monique Lhuillier column slip dress with a black diamond choker by Noudar. And if we’re not mistaken, that perfect glow on Taylor’s face seems to be due to – could it be? – contouring.
Rock on, Tay!
