White was an all time favourite at the MTV Video Music Awards ceremony this week and while Rihanna stunned everyone in a white dress and showed off her new dangerously short hair cut, singer Taylor Swift chose to play with a blank canvas too. She was spotted at the event in a white pantsuit by J Mendel.
Taylor is a hardcore fan of the colour red and this is probably the umpteenth time we are spotting her going with the 50s classic look. The singer went with smokey eyes and a dark pout, one of those combinations very few know how to rock. For that winged look, go for liquid eyeliner you are actually comfortable with. For first timers, try Mac’s Penultimate or L’Oreal’s pen eyeliner that is available for as cheap as Rs1,800. You can hold this liquid eyeliner like a pen which automatically results in cleaner lines and chicer finish. For this fire hot red pout, go with your trusted Maybelline Color Sensational in Red Revival, which would be easy on your pocket and your lips with its creamy texture.
We would have liked her look more if she had kept her locks towards the darker side of the hair colour spectrum. This dirty blonde shade is adding a bit of murkiness to her otherwise clean, lean and sleek look. You can try to experiment and go for darker curls if you want to come across as a teasing mix of naughty and nice.
Taylor Swift turned to her personal collection of jewels and picked a big diamante ring and matching silver blingy earrings for this event. While the singer chose to keep things pale you can oomph up your white suit by adding a pop of colour through smart accessorising. Pick a statement necklace with shades of blue, greens and purples and pair it with matching earrings.
Taylor Swift channelled Bianca Jagger circa Studio 54 in a white pantsuit from J Mendel. One can find a similar stunning white slim fit blazer and pant suit at Mango. It would burn your pocket a little and may even ruin your savings plan but only a lover of white can understand the true worth of this suit. You can add a pop of colour to your suit by wearing a black or even a red tank top under your white jacket.
We like how Taylor combined Xenia The Warrior Princess with high fashion. These gold strappy sandals are a must-have for every fashionista as they can be worn with western as well as eastern clothing. Look at Walk Eaze to get your hands on cheaper deals (Rs4,500).
