She is one of the most successful singers of last year with her album Red going multi-platinum in the U.S. alone.
And Taylor Swift sported a gown befitting Country royalty on Sunday, stealing the show at the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas in a stunning metallic dress. The 23-year-old star wore her blonde hair straight and up in a chic ponytail, teaming the unusual chain-mail style old-gold gown with just a pair of subtle jewelled earrings.
The star is nominated for five awards – Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year for Red, and Video of the Year and looked in good spirits as she made her way into the MGM Grand in Sin City.
The star’s intricate gown was partially backless, consisting of a shimmering silver metal built-in bra.
Meanwhile, Taylor’s friend Blake Shelton has warned his Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards co-host not to insult her on stage.
The Voice USA judge thinks his fellow presenter Luke Bryan should avoid angering the 23-year-old I Knew You Were Trouble singer’s fans at the ceremony at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Asked if he had any advice for Luke, Blake said: ‘I would tell him to be prepared for the onslaught of hatred that will come from Taylor Swift’s fan base if you say any sort of a joke or if she’s any part of a punch line in the monologue.’ Taylor is nominated for five awards at the 48th annual event and will also team up with Tim McGraw and Keith Urban for a performance of the track Highway Don’t Care.
