Taylor Swift is back at the Grammys — and looking abs-olutely amazing.
The “Anti-Hero” hitmaker returned to the music industry’s most prestigious awards ceremony for 2023 after skipping last year’s show, stepping onto the red carpet in a look that blended elements from two of her musical eras.
Swift, 33, wore a midnight blue (or “Midnights” blue, rather) custom Roberto Cavalli look comprised of a long-sleeved turtleneck crop top — a sartorial hallmark of her “1989” album cycle — and a matching high-waisted skirt, both covered in sparkling crystals.
She paired the midriff-baring set with matching shimmery blue eye makeup, her signature red lip, an elegant bun, Giuseppe Zanotti heels and enormous diamond-shaped Lorraine Schwartz statement earrings accented with purple stones.
The “Lavender Haze” singer is nominated in four categories this year: Song of the Year (for “All Too Well (10 Minute Version)”), Best Song Written for Visual Media (for “Carolina” from “Where the Crawdads Sing”), Best Music Video (for “All Too Well: The Short Film”) and Best Country Song (for “I Bet You Think About Me”).
While Swift released her 10th studio album, “Midnights,” in 2022, the LP missed the window for 2023 Grammys consideration; it’ll be eligible in 2024.
Still, her latest red carpet look is right in line with the sparkling styles she’s been sporting lately as a nod to her new album’s disco-tinged aesthetic; Swift has stepped out recently in “Bejeweled” designs by Paco Rabanne, Oscar de la Renta, The Blonds and David Koma, to name but a few.
At the 2021 Grammys, Swift — dressed in a dreamy floral Oscar de la Renta mini — took home her third Album of the Year award for “Folklore,” setting a record as the first female artist to win three times in that category (and tying Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder and Paul Simon for the achievement).
Perhaps she’ll make history again tonight.
