Taylor Swift Shared Her 2019 Billboard Music Awards Dress WAY Before She Hit The Red Carpet
The red carpet is just getting underway but it's safe to say that Taylor Swift's 2019 Billboard Music Awards outfit is exquisite — not that you'd expect anything less from the woman who's won the most BBMAs in history. At Wednesday's red carpet, Swift opted to wear a short, high-neck lavender dress, with tons of frills and ruffles from the Raisa & Vanessa spring/summer 2019 collection, which the singer shared with fans via Instagram before hitting the red carpet.
Swift paired the look with some chic silver, strappy pumps to give her ensemble a pop of shimmer. For hair, the singers locks were styled into a simple updo, with her straight signature banging framing her face. As for accessories, Swift kept things simple with some stud earrings and a few statement rings, including a gorgeous Moritz Glik Kaleidoscope Shaker ring with pink and purple stones. It's clear she wanted the dress to do all the talking on BBMA night.
But Swift made a quick outfit change once she hit the stage with fellow singer Brendon Urie tonight. Wearing a multicolored, shimmery, metallic dress and bright blue boots, Swift performed her new hit song "ME!" along with the Panic! At The Disco frontman, which fans have been raving about since it dropped on April 26. But her epic performance isn't the only thing Swift fans should be fawning over to during the show.
This year, the 29-year-old musician is up for two coveted awards: Top Female Artist and Top Touring Artist. Cardi B, Ariana Grande, Halsey, and Ella Mai, as well as Beyoncé and Jay-Z, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Justin Timberlake are up for these awards as well, respectively. But as previously mentioned, Swift has already taken home a whopping 23 BBMAs, so if she scores big tonight, that would bring her overall total to 25.
At the 2018 show, Swift left audiences shook when she rocked a blush Atelier Versace gown, complete with silver and pink feather-like accents. She paired the look with chunky, rose gold shoes by Casadei, while keeping her accessories simple — yet still sparkly — rocking earrings by Hueb, and rings by Fernando Jorge, Sara Weinstock Jewelry, and Maxior, all according to ET Online.
Swift was nominated for five awards that year, including: Top Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Billboard 200 Album, as well as Top Selling Album and Top Female Artist, both of the latter she won. During her speech for Top Female Artist, the singer shared a heartfelt speech, dedicating her award to other women musicians.
"I want to thank all the female artists who paved the way for us to get to do what we do the way we get to do it," Swift declared. "All the new female artists who are killing it out there right now, we’re so inspired by you. And I don’t know, shout-out to the future female artists who just picked up a guitar or learned how to play the piano. And to the fans who care about the music that we make: Thank you so much."
No word yet if Swift will be making an outfit change to make a speech if she wins tonight, but I'll definitely be keeping my eyes peeled!
