Taylor Swift in white at the Teen Choice Awards: lovely or too Dairy Queen?


Taylor Swift changed it up at last night‘s Teen Choice Awards. Slightly. It’s a minor difference, but it’s enough for me to think that she looks pretty good. She pulled her hair into a flattering ponytail! Yay! We have to praise her when she does something right. Anyway, Swifty took home the “Ultimate Choice” Award, which is sort of like the Teen Choice-version of a “career achievement”. Swifty is 21 years old! Sigh…

Her dress was Rafael Cennamo, jewelry by Neil Lane, and shoes by Fendi. Her shoes – metallic peep-toes – are my least favorite part of the ensemble. The dress is kind of meh as well, but I’m grateful it’s in white rather than a pastel. I’m tired of Swifty in pastels. It’s not the most sophisticated silhouette, what with the too-stiff looking skirt, but considering the venue, I won’t complain. If this were the Oscars, I would want Swifty to put away with the poodle skirts and go with something sleeker and figure-enhancing (she has a lovely, model-y figure). I also don’t get that little nonsensical detailing on the bust, but whatever. Once again, fine for the venue.

Here’s something I will never understand about Swifty, though: the BLUE eye-shadow. It makes her looks like she’s working at a Dairy Queen in Nashville. I’m sure that Swifty gets her makeup done by a professional, but I’m also sure that these questionable eye-makeup choices come from her. Her eyes are deep-set and shifty, and when she over-does her eye makeup, it just gives her a more predatory, stalker-look. My point? Enough with the blue eye shadow and too-heavy eye liner.

    I’m a fan of country music, but swear-to-God, I can not get the fuss around this girl. Just can’t.

  2. brin says:

    The dress, hair, shoes are ok (good for Swifty) but I agree, the eye make-up is too much! Maybe she uses Dolly Parton’s makeup artist.

  3. jover says:

    Another industry sponsored event for industry created “stars” to sell their industry created product. Woodstock will still be remembered long after this corporate crap is long forgotten. The fact that these “stars” think this is a big deal shows how delusional they are.

  4. gee says:

    She looks so much like kate gosselin. I dislike swifty.

  5. the original bellaluna says:

    DO. NOT. WANT.

  6. Mel says:

    Same here. Love the hair, but that’s about it.

  7. sharylmj says:

    I think she looks cute and age appropriate. She’a all covered up, her skirt isn’t too short. The eyemake is a bit much, but it’s a kid’s awards show and during the daytime, so I’m giving her a break. I really like Taylor Swift as a role model for my young teenage daughter. She’s sweet and humble, and acts her age in a way that I would want my 21 year old to act. Her music is a bit boring, but I like the message….

  8. Quest says:

    Can’t believe I am saying this but Swifty looks much better overall …hair pulled back and the dress wasn’t bad looking on her. Hated the blue shadow as well…could not stop looking at her stalker eyes with that heavy color on her.

  9. fabchick says:

    Her makeup is horrible. She has the potential to be a really cute girl if she was styled properly and hires a new make-up artist.

  10. Vee says:

    Cute, flirty dress, very appropriate for the occasion. Her eye makeup is a bit much unfortunately.

  11. Jackson says:

    IDK. Other than that hideous blue eye shadow I think she looks fine. Not overdone. Cute. Appropriate. I give it a thumbs up.

  12. Sumodo1 says:

    She’s a country act, right? ‘Nuf said.

  13. Lila says:

    Enough with the posing pigeon toed. It looks ridiculous.

  14. lucy2 says:

    I like her hair, but the makeup is just stupid.
    The dress is cute – for anything else I’d say it looks kind of cheap and silly, but it’s the TCA.

  15. inthekitchen says:

    @Lila, I totally agree! I hate when grown women pose like that, like they are some wittle girly girl babykins who doesn’t know how to stand up straight. Women of the world, please stop. TIA.

    I think she was trying to channel Duchess skin and bones with the white dress and sparkly belt (Kate’s outfit from the night of the wedding with the fuzzy sweater), only a shorter, uglier version.

  16. INeedANap says:

    The cutesy dresses, the pigeon-toed pose, the blue eyeshadow…she just wants to be a pretty little princess her whole life! I mean it works now, but what is she going to do when she’s 35 and still wants to sit in a pink frilly room in a tutu and sing about high school boys?

  17. Glyrics says:

    I think she’s adorable.

  18. Seal Team 6 says:

    I like her. Talented songwriter and she seems like a nice kid. Plus, she gets major points for writing a song calling old John Mayer.

  19. 4Real says:

    It reminds me of pizza dough twirling??

  20. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    I don’t think anyone would dispute Woodstock’s legendary status, but if ever there were a generation that didn’t need to be fellated by Tom Brokaw, it’s the baby boomers who–as you well know–invented music. Ask your local post-yuppiedom stockbroker and he will tell you how he singlehandedly erased yellow fever, poverty, the key of C-sharp minor and Schopenhauer from our minds and bodies through the power of watching: the mud never tasted so sweet. They are shy, however, so begin by talking about ideals.

  21. cmc says:

    Kaiser, I saw a photo of her from this event with the dress floating up doing a gasping/keeping skirt down pose. I think she was trying to channel Marylin Monroe…

  22. i.want.shoes says:

    I’m so tired of her cute princess look. She’s 21, dating guys (probably having sex), and this whole sparkly, ice-figure skating, doll hair look is becoming creepy.

  23. jover says:

    I think i get your point mamabesser which is accurate but that gen had woodstock, and the current generation is stuck with corporate crap like teen choice “awards”. And no swifty is no role model for anyone; have you seen her live borderline talentless – her songwriting – word choice lyrics – fit for 10 yr olds. Her persona is every bit as contrived, albeit for a different demographic, as Lady xerox, but still contrived. We know why she still gets a pass for her low quality music, but she shouldn’t.

  24. Elizabeth says:

    1/2 cheerleader outfit + 1/2 marilyn monroe white dress = taylor’s outfit

    I feel like she’s dressing for the next National Lampoon movie.

    P.S. : hate the blue eye shadow!

  25. Amanda G says:

    Really cute dress, ugly girl. Oops, that’s harsh, but she seriously does need a makeover.

  26. Ally says:

    White trash eyeshadow, but great ankles. lolol

  27. LittleDeadGirl says:

    Not a very flattering dress but it’s Teen Choice awards so who cares?

  28. Nicky says:

    She needs to stop the fake jaw-dropping, it’s not cute nor is it genuine. Her personal style is ‘meh’ at best, it’s a different variation of the same theme time after time; much like her music. Astonishing that she’s almost a 22 year old woman yet seems intent on playing the pretty princess act. I look at Emma Stone who is around the same age and see a mature young woman, I look at Taylor and see an annoying 16 year old.

  29. Erin says:

    at least she isn’t wearing bright red lipstick like she ALWAYS does

  30. Tabitha says:

    I think she looks absolutely gorgeous. Her dress is adorably and she pulls it off wonderfully. Stfu about her makeup. She doesn’t do her own makeup, I’m sure. Besides, I bet none of your makeup will ever look half as good as hers.

  31. Very great post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to mention that I’ve truly loved browsing your blog posts. After all I will be subscribing on your rss feed and I’m hoping you write again very soon!

  32. You realize therefore considerably in terms of this matter, produced me for my part believe it from numerous numerous angles. Its like women and men don’t seem to be fascinated unless it is one thing to accomplish with Girl gaga! Your personal stuffs outstanding. All the time care for it up!
