Taylor Swift in Ralph Lauren at the People’s Choice Awards: corpse bride or cute?

We’re splitting up the People’s Choice Fashion (and Dudes) into several different posts, so don’t get mad when you can’t have all of your People’s Choice fashion at once! As for the actual awards themselves… well, you can see the list of winners here. Surprisingly enough, it’s not a list dominated by Adam Sandler movies, which is what the People’s Choice is usually all about. The Hunger Games was the big winner as far as movies, but Taylor Swift also got a lot of attention too – she won “Best Country Artist” or something, and she wore this white Ralph Lauren gown that made her look like a corpse bride. Let me be clear: I actually think the RL dress is very pretty and classic, and I would probably love it on someone like Halle Berry or even Jennifer Lawrence. But on Swifty, it seems bridal, and taken with her corpsey styling, it just seems like she’s a corpse bride. PS… Should I talk about her bolt-ons? They’re really obvious. Discuss.

Here’s Lea Michele in Elie Saab. I actually love this on her. I’m glad she didn’t wear a full-length gown to the People’s Choice, and this little minidress is absolutely occasion-appropriate. The hot pink is a great color on her too.

And here’s Jennifer Lawrence in Valentino Couture. I cannot even describe how much I dislike this dress. It’s so dated and just from a design point of view… it’s sucks. Hard. It’s just an ugly dress and I can’t believe her stylist chose it for her. Also: why does her makeup look so awful? Is she fighting with her makeup team?

    It’s weird, from the side Taylor looks gorge and tan but from the front she looks pale and her hair color looks weird. Photo exposure? Love the dress though.

    WOW at Jennifer Lawrence’s dress. This is what happens when a woman has no personal taste and relies on a stylist. That’s just horrific, including the makeup.

    • Rachel says:

      The flash is doing her no favors here. On screen she looked gorgeous. I tuned in for a grand total of 3 minutes (because the show was just so horrid), but I did see her win her award, and I was struck by how beautiful she looked. Definitely the best I’ve ever seen her look. It’s unfortunate that she just doesn’t photograph well in the dress.

      • pamspam says:

        I was going to make the exact same comment. I didn’t watch the show, just happened to see 3 minutes worth and it just happened to be her accepting an award (for what, I don’t even know). I am almost always critical of this girl, and she annoys me to know end. But she looked absolutely gorgeous, flawless even. Ugh. And it really kinda pissed me off. :) The photos are definitely not flattering.

      • aud says:

        Gosh, didn’t they watch clueless???

        You can’t trust the mirror, you have to take pictures to see how you look!!

    • Liv says:

      Yeah, unbelievable what they are doing to Jennifer Lawrence. I mean I could style her better and I’m not a stylist or something. Though it’s not hard to improve from this… ;-)

      • Jean says:

        Jennifer’s hair I could not stand. Having a big piece of hair that you constantly have to swipe back. I just don’t see her has hollywood beautiful. She seems to rough around the edges. Taylor was trying to pull of Kristen Stewart’s red dress look and her left breast looked bigger than the other. She looked six feet tall and Josh could hide behind her and you would never see him. Such a little dude.

      • Michele says:

        Isn’t Rachel Zoe her stylist? If so, she’s not doing Jennifer any favors if she picked that fug dress for her to wear last night. Her hair looked really bad and her makeup was…meh. I hope she gets it together for the Globes.

      • TrustMeOnThis says:

        I didn’t like her styling, at ALL, but YOUR left boob is probably bigger than your right one, too, so you can’t fault her on that.
        Go ahead, give ‘em a feel. It’s true for pretty much all women!

  2. Peanut says:

    I think Swifty looks good! The dress is stunning. Lea Michelle looks great too. J-Law on the other hand… Yeesh

  3. Hannah says:

    Swifty’s breast don’t seem fake to me.

  4. Eleonor says:

    Please tell me that is a vintage Valentino!
    They need to hire him back, their dresses are getting worst and worst.
    I like the RL, even on Swifty, but her makeup is totally wrong.

  5. marie says:

    what’s the word Cher used? Monet? Yes, that’s how I would describe Taylor here. She looks fantastic away, but close up the make up is questionable. I like the dress.

    As for the other two, wtf? Lea looks alright, but Jennifer looks like she raided her mothers closet.

  6. Lizzy says:

    Horrible makeup. She looks like vampire. Hungry vampire.

  7. anita0614 says:

    I think her boob job is evident now. Very unnatural look. Not attractive, the dress is too open for her chest.

  8. Justyna says:

    When I saw Swifty in that dress my first thought was – “age inappropriate”, then I realized she is the same age as me which is a year older than Jennifer Lawrence. In my mind she will remain the teenage unicorn princess forever.

  9. WickedSteppMom says:

    OK, someone help…I’ve got the little ads in the corners of all the pics again & can’t remember how to make them go away!

  10. Micah says:

    Jennifer Lawrence – What the hell happened?!…..That dress is horrible, and fits her terribly. She would have looked Amazing in the Ralph Lauren gown swifty is wearing.

    Lea Michele – That dress looks great on her. I just dont like the hair style with the dress.

    Swifty – Takes herself way too seriously. The Gown is gorgeous, but she manages to take the joy out of it.

  11. nina says:

    wow, taylors’ bolt-ons are sooo obvious, dislike!

  12. Joanna says:

    Taylor looks gorgeous..she really is a beautiful woman.

  13. anna says:

    She clearly doesn’t have bolt-ons. They look natural.

    • Em says:

      Ha! Those babies are fake. She’s so thin you can count each bone in her chest, yet she has two perfectly round tatas that are really defying gravity with almost no support. Yeah, those are *totally* real.

      • Lauren says:

        Taylor looks disturbed. My God she has been with a lot of men-boys. No–i am not a prude. Everyone makes fun of Jen Aniston and LL…yet.. Taylor hops from one bed-playpen to another..gets a free pass. Then TS looks sad-vindictive for the media, writes a revenge song with 17 other people, then starts all over again. Stop the phoney madness.

    • yariettt says:

      hahahahaha, Anna,

      You are bringing my bitch out today! Real boobs are not spherical. They are shaped like a droplet. Swifty has no fat around her bolt ons, so they just protrude awkwardly from her chest cavity like two domes on the Vatican. And girls with a real rack do not have a giant canyon between their boobies when they are pushed up to heaven! As my beloved cousin would say, that’s what we call a refund gap!

      • Lauren says:

        I am a size 4 on the bottom..a 10-12 on top. (out of proportion). All the women in my family are built this way. Our boobs are real..D cup and beyond. Real boobs have cleavage, and are not perfectly perky and resting under armpits suffocating for air on an emaciated-bony chest. Taylor`s PR team is not fooling anyone.

  14. daz says:

    Has Taylor Swift got a wonky boob job ?????

  15. Belle Epoch says:

    BOLT ONS! Not working.

    She’s a skinny girl and without them would probably be totally flat. Which actually would work better with this dress.

    Isn’t all-white kindof a strange choice?

  16. La Calabaza says:

    J-Law has to fire her stylist asap! Get someone like Leith Clark.

  17. annabelle says:

    Well someone is looking to find a new famous boyfriend. My, my, how bold.

    Leah looks like she’s going to homecoming.

    Jennifer, I see where she was trying to go with the dress, but she missed the mark. It’s a shame because I love her so.

  18. I.want.shoes says:

    Squinty Swifty’s dress would look amazing on a girl with a darker skin tone.

    And I think that’s a boob job.

    Dafuq is on JLaw?!

  19. Abby says:

    Taylor and Lea look great. Taylor pulled back the bangs! Jennifer… eesh.

  20. hmm says:

    Lea Michele looks just right for People’s Choice. Jen just looks awful.

  21. Dangerfox says:

    Third pic down, the side pic of Taylor, is that a scar or boob tape?

  22. poppy says:

    how can you be so wealthy and still wind up with a discount boob job? note to surgeon: placing them unevenly on her chest did not make them look more natural.

  23. sasa says:

    I can’t get past Taylor’s stink face. It always distracts me from her fashion choices.

    Lea looks like a prom queen but in a good way (I’m gambling on that being possible). The look suits her cheesy public persona and she’s definitely wearing that dress not the other way around.

    Jennifer… ugh, that’s just plain awful. The whole of it, including make-up and hair.

  24. Nashville Girl says:

    J-Law needs Cinna stat!

  25. CTgirl says:

    Corpse bride for sure. I didn’t immediately recognize her without her favorite accessory – she wasn’t desperately clutching an 18 year old boy.

  26. Marianne says:

    My favourite look was Lea Michele. Not only was the dress super cute and flattering….but Lea was just glowing the night. She seems really happy lately.

    I also really loved Taylor’s dress, but I felt like I have seen her wear it before.

    I didn’t like Jennifer’s dress. It looked kind of 80s-ish to me.

  27. Jess says:

    Jennifer looks horrible, Taylor is overdressed as usual, and Leah looks ok, but like she’s stuck in 2002, which she does a lot.

  28. Harpreet says:

    I think Taylor got implants too, just compare this to her other photos, it is clear. Also, they seem to be like Blake Lively’s.

    But, how long is the turn around time for the surgery, I mean, I’m kind of surprised she didn’t have to take months off.

  29. Ann says:

    Taylor’s dress is way too much for the PCA. It’s a lame, 3rd tier awards show that is only attended by the winners. You can see who the winners are just by looking at who’s in the audience,

    Dresses to events like this should be short. No gowns, heavy beading, etc.

  30. serena says:

    Dear god, Jennifer needs a new team to do her styling..

    I really dislike Lea’s outfit too, it seems like a skating costume..so ridiculous. As for Swifty, I agree with everything.. that totally washed her out, including her make up.
    It’s a general fashion disaster.

  31. Nanz says:

    I love Jennifer Lawrence, but that dress looks like old school Dynasty ice-skater fun.

    I MUST HAVE Swift’s earrings. I’m sure I can’t afford them, but they are gorgeous. Are they the same designer?

  32. apsutter says:

    Jennifer Lawrence’s dress looks like she took it from Liz Taylors closet. And I like T Swift’s dress but hate the makeup.

  33. km says:

    I’m all for some plastic surgery, but with Taylor’s tiny frame and that dress, all I see are


  34. Ann says:

    You know, Swifty has that weird lip thing going on that reminds me of Cumberbatch.

  35. MG says:

    My first impression when I saw pics of Taylor…gorgeous. And I am NOT a Taylor fan…at all. It was nice to see her in something sleek and elegant instead of her usual sparkly pretty princess dresses. For the record, I think she has had a boob job. LM looks great and my beloved JLaw…no, just no. She would have rocked Taylor’s dress even better! God I hope her stylist gets it right for the Oscars!

  36. Suzy from Ontario says:

    Taylor – love the dress, hate the eye makeup

    Lea – love the dress but she looks so uncomfortable in that pose like she needs to get to a bathroom asap

    Jennifer – who is dressing/styling this girl? ’nuff said

  37. vixo says:

    I hate Swifty’s makeup, it does her no favours – and it does look like fake boobs.
    The dress color looks great on Lea but why so short?
    Jennifer looks a mess.

  38. Rux says:

    I am sure I am in the minority, but I really loved this dress on her. I was so excited that she did not wear a pageant/80s Prom Dress/Marchesa/Country Music star Disco ball dress.

  39. Buckwild says:

    Taylor Swift = Miss Havisham

  40. tabasco says:

    taylor’s hair looks gray-ish in these pics. weird photo light or dye mishap?

  41. Feebee says:

    I can’t categorically say whether Swift has bought herself some boobs but it sure looks that way and now I’m wondering if “they” were the cause of her latest ex saying “something he shouldn’t have said” because they’re pretty hard to ignore.

    Love Lea’s dress but Jennifer’s vintage isn’t the timeless kind that is needed.

  42. Diana says:

    Taylor and Lea look great to me. J-law on the other hand…

  43. Immy says:

    I like Taylor’s look, minus the eye make-up, which is what’s making her look corpse-y.
    Also, not liking J-Law’s dress. It looks like something Elizabeth Taylor wore in her later years.

  44. KellyinSeattle says:

    I am just soooooo tired of Taylor Swift.

  45. KellyinSeattle says:

    I am just soooooo tired of Taylor Swift.

  46. j.eyre says:

    *Sigh* – I know it is just me, but I am tired of the dramatically risque plunging neckline. Can we think of something else?

  47. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    The white and long length is a bit odd….BUT I have to give her props for being more risky with such a bold look, a step in the right direction for a 23 y.o. woman. I am so glad to see her (slowly, but surely) break away from the teen princess she has been.

    If you go read this article and comments about her on people.com, some of the moms of little girls who are Swift fans are angry. To that I say, shame on the mother who allows any celeb to be THE role model for your little girl. You are the parent. Honestly, with most of Swift’s new lyrics, your 5 y.o. should not be singing along with, “I’ll do anything you say, if you say it with your hands.” A lot of the songs are too mature for little girls, so she should not feel an obligation to cater to them. /rant

  48. TheOneAndOnly says:

    Does shifty mcveneers do anything on a day to day basis to improve her crappy juvenile music, or is she just a professional famewhore like all the rest; and sorry, the Supermodels of the 90s were/are gorgeous (check out any of the some of the thousands of pics,montages,runway shows on the internet/youtube); these girls, and certainly swifty, are bland and boring by comparison.

  49. FirstTimer says:

    Taylor’s is ok. Lea’s cute. Jen’s…. Ugh! I forgive you again, Jen!

  50. Tara says:

    Cute and corpse bride are mutually exclusive ? That said, neither. And, yeah, JLaw’s stylists seem to hate her; after the Fug fur I’m not so keen on her either.

  51. Amanda G says:

    I agree with a lot of the comments on here, but Taylor Swift being gorgeous is not one of them. She’s average looking at best. And that’s being polite.

    Lea Michelle looks amazing in that dress! JL looks terrible. Why can’t she hire a decent stylist?

  52. erika says:

    Supposedly Harry and the Swiffer HATED EACH OTHER te entire time they dated….

    yup, a blind gossip blog is stating their relationship was purely PR and the two of them HATED each other the entire time they were together…

    the proof is in the photos. just look at harry’s facial expression and the Swiffer is always yacking her mouth off…

    funny. swiffer? come on…stop with the PR boyfriends!

  53. Sam x says:

    I don’t think the eye make up helps at all either otherwise Taylor is werking the dress! x

  54. Rachel() says:

    I thought Taylor looked really pretty. Her earrings are cute too. Don’t get the corpse bride thing. Just b/c the dress is white? I think your Swifty judgement is clouded.
    I like Jennifer Lawrence, but she has the worst style. Bad Oscar campaigning to look torn up all the time.

  55. Pandora says:

    I’m probably in the minority here, but I think Taylor looks hot. I’m also in the minority in doubting that she’s had her boobs done. I’m 21 and have worn dresses similar to that one. Gravity just hasn’t hit her yet. And if she has had her boobs done I don’t see a problem with the work.. I think they look good. That’s just me tho!

    As for JLaw, awful dress and makeup, but she’s a gorgeous girl with an amazing body. Don’t hide it with a dress like that!

  56. Kosmos says:

    Taylor looked very nice, especially because she changed her bangs and hair altogether and wore a sophisticated gown instead of her regular; however, her implants look too obvious, so with that, I would have gone with a tiny bit more coverage…I’ve read that she & boyfriend broke up because of a massive fight and also that she said to him, “You are lucky to even be with me,” could this be true? If so, she needs an attitude adjustment.

  57. Gloria says:

    Taylor’s boob job reminds me of Blake Lively’s although Blake’s fake boobs look better because Blake isn’t as skinny – at least some of her body fat covers up the bony chest.

    The second pick on Lainey’s post today is the clincher. I don’t think the red mark underneath is an implant scar – she has the more natural-looking expensive kind of implants that go in through the armpit and under the chest wall muscle, essentially lifting and protruding natural breast tissue. Thing is, if you’re really skinny like Taylor and wear a dress like this and stand in front of flashing cameras… you can see the vertical line of the chest wall muscle as it is puffed out. You can totally see it in this pic.


  58. s says:

    I think Taylor looks cute but OMG WHAT IS JLAW WEARING? Her hair is awful too, you didn’t mention that.

  59. Caroline says:

    I’m a bit younger than Taylor, 5’4″ 94 pounds, an my upper body looks exactly like hers.
    Skinny except for size b boobies, and they have no droop at all except right before monthlies.
    Fyi I just went through a growth spurt too..so technically, a body can look like hers NATURALLY.

  60. Alyce says:

    My boobs are real (36 C) and very round and they sit pretty far apart. I actually had to let one of my friends cop a feel before she believed that they were real. So I hate the “they’re round, so the must be fake” stuff. However, that being said, I think you’re probably right about Swifty’s.

  61. Isa says:

    I guess I’m the only one that thought her boobs looked good.
    I’m surprised people aren’t excited about this more mature look since people usually complain about sparkly prom dresses. I don’t like her makeup but I think everything else looks great. But I guess Taylor can’t do anything right.

  62. Amilu says:

    Those bolt-ons looks insane. She needs to keep them more covered up, so they’ll look a little less frankenboob-y. I think her implants look awesome when she’s wearing normal clothes or gowns with higher necklines.

    And I think that ashy, dark blonde haircolor is as guilty as the dress of making her look like the corpse bride.

  63. Kate says:

    I really like Jennifer Lawrence, but that dress swamps her on the top and looks like she accidentally tucked her skirt into her underwear in the bathroom from the bottom. Also gives a young girl with an incredible body the impression of a matronly, early-40s tummy. Just… no.

    Taylor Swift’s dress would be lovely in another colour, or without the train. As it is, that’s pretty much what my wedding dress looked like if you reduce the cleavage.

    Lea Michele looks lovely. And is camera-mugging less than usual, too.

  64. Jill says:

    WOW! She is letting everyone know she had her breastasis done. Swift looks old and aged for her age. Probably from bedding all those fellows lol. That will age you quick.

    The Hunger Games chick….blahhhh.

  65. kitty bye says:

    No More Cream, Beige, White, Tan Please!!!

  66. Meganne says:

    I don’t understand why really pale girls insist on wearing white all the time. It just washes them out! I love Lea’s dress though!

  67. Brian says:

    Taylor’s boobs are “fake”, but not surgical. The dress is taped to her breasts inside of each nipple and then there is padding on the outsides to shove what she has toward the center and to fill in the outer portions thereby making everything look bigger. She’s done this for events for years. Look at the “Roomies” skit on Saturday Night Live to see what she really has going on. 99% of her pictures involve some sort of padding or cutlets, sometimes to ridiculous proportions compared to what she has naturally.

  68. VGS says:

    I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Lea Michelle looks the best out of the bunch. Love that color on her and her legs look great too!

  69. VGS says:

    I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Lea Michele looks the best out of the bunch. Love that color on her and her legs look great too!

  70. Katie says:

    Oh Taylor. I love you but you’re trying too hard to look edgy and grown up. Just be you!
