Judging by the sartorial situation on the subway, sequins were the name of the game last night. But it was a slightly different story for the performers in Times Square for “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2013 With Ryan Seacrest” (a bit of a mouthful, we know). Taylor Swift took the stage in a shimmering scarlet biker jacket, paired with (gasp!) leather pants. Could this be a sign that Tay Tay is going the badass route for 2013? We can only hope.
As for our other favorite bang-sporting singer, Carly Rae Jepsen chose a dramatic red floor-sweeping skirt and long-sleeved crop top with mesh and velvet panels. The look could have worked with a mini, but unfortunately, the high-waisted silhouette was an unflattering pick. MC Hammer joined Psy for a performance of “Gangnam Style”, the former opting for an all black outfit, including his signature Hammer pants, and the latter wearing a white suit paired with a chubby white vest.
Finally, Mayor Michael Bloomberg got his high kick on with the Rockettes in a patriotic American flag sweater, but alas, seemed slightly out of sync with the girls.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
