Somewhere between attending the Met’s Costume Institute Gala, taking in Roberto Cavalli’s spring 2011 show in Milan and closing in on her 21st birthday, Taylor Swift became a little more adventurous with her style. Though she still sticks to sparkles when it comes to red carpets, Swift has been mixing things up a bit on her downtime — which is why the stick-straight ‘do she debuted at last night’s American Music Awards was a pleasant and playful surprise.
While this isn’t the first time Swift has gone straight, it is the first time we’ve seen her do it with bangs. True to form, Swift paired her straightened style with a bejeweled dress by Collette Dinnigan and sparkly stilettos. And though we should probably admit that we’re unabashed Swift fans, it is our professional and unbiased opinion that she looks great — though we wouldn’t object to a slightly softer straightened look. If Swift wanted to avoid wig whispers in the future, we’d recommend adding in a few layers.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
