She may not have been on home turf, but Taylor Swift certainly made sure to pull out all the stops as she attended the 2012 ARIA Awards in Sydney, Australia, . The 22-year-old singer showed off her fashion credentials in an impeccably elegant, Grecian-inspired flowing cream gown. Featuring lace panel cutaway detail at the sides, a bustier top and a draped skirt, the chic garment ensured the We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together stole the show as she hit the red carpet for the Australian equivalent to the Grammys.
Taylor teamed the sophisticated gown with a retro-style, twisted hairstyle, while offsetting the dress’s cream colour with a slick of bold red lipstick and dramatic blue eye make-up as she settled into her new metropolitan surroundings. The star – who is rumoured to be dating One Direction singer Harry Styles – seemed to be in her element as she arrived at the prestigious awards bash, stopping for pictures and to sign autographs for her Australian fans. She wrote on her Twitter page: ‘Woah. The fans at the ARIAs came out in full force!! This is INSANE!’
However, Taylor’s purpose in attending the ARIA Awards wasn’t merely to decorate the red carpet, with the singer performing her new track, Here Comes Trouble, in the ceremony. Prior to taking to the stage, she tweeted: ‘So excited about performing on the ARIA’s tonight! Never been before. Here’s comes ‘trouble’…. See what I did there? Sorry. I know. Sorry.’ Taylor Swift was joined by the likes of Joel and Benji Madden at the star-studded event, with the brothers wearing near-identical denim cut-off jackets, with matching trainers, jeans and shades as they walked the red carpet. – Dailymail
