When one reporter asked designer, Donatella Versace, “What kind of liberties can you take on the Grammys red carpet?” she responded, "My name is Versace — when did I ever play by the rules?"
Taylor Swift, 26, owned the red carpet when she stepped out in her two-piece Altier Versace set. The coral and fuchsia ensemble showcased everything that Swift has become well recognized for. The bandeau top bared her toned torso while a dramatic high-slit, floor-length skirt exposed her long legs in matching short-shorts. A bright, bold lip pulled the whole look together, perfectly accessorized with strappy gold shoes and sparkling choker necklace.
With this unexpected and bold choice for a red carpet event, Swift slayed both her opening performance and fashion that night, all before walking away with an award for the Best Album of 2016. Her dress encapsulates everything that Swift represents: young, sexy, fresh, and powerful.
