This Week's Best Dressed Star: A Love Letter to Taylor Swift

Some weeks we happen to get a little more invested than usual in the race for Best Dressed, and this was one of those weeks. Ever since we laid eyes on Taylor Swift’s dazzling Houghton mini, worn to pick up her Songwriter/Artist of the Year award in Nashville, we were straight up obsessed. And, apparently, so were you, because she held a commanding 5,000-vote lead at press time, easily beating out the rest of the pack.

PHOTOS: See what other stars wore on the red carpet this week!

This look was a surprising departure from her typical style — between the accessories (those Jimmy Choos!), the pink pout and the flawless smokey eye (seriously, can we hire her makeup artist for a night?), Taylor went full-on bombshell. Maybe next time she wants to get revenge on an ex by writing an angry song about him , she should just send him this photo instead.

Oh yeah, we almost forgot: Other stars were on the red carpet this week! Sandra Bullock had a strong showing in second place, thanks to the black lace mini she wore to the London premiere of Gravity. And Freida Pinto proved work-appropriate clothes can also be Best Dressed-worthy: Her ladylike cream blouse and brocade skirt, selected to celebrate the International Day of the Girl, landed her in third.

Also earning a spot in the top 10 was Dianna Agron, who stepped out in our favorite black-and-white look as of late (and trust us, there have been plenty to choose from): a Carolina Herrera gown with poufy sleeves and coordinating belt.

We want to know: Are you obsessing over Swift’s look as much as we are, or do you think someone else deserved the top spot?

Taylor looks beautiful in this picture!

She looks lovely and her body is killer, but I feel she’s worn this dress at least a dozen times before.

Elise on

Madeline does it matter how many times she has worn it? A nice change from the usual celebrity who won’t ever wear something twice!

Jessica on

She really does look stunning. The outfit is cute & age appropriate and her hair & makeup are flawless. Kudos to her team!

Seabot on

How is this surprising? It looks like everything else she wears. Personally, I find her style boring, but I’m not the one wearing it.

Liz on

I think it’s really her hair and makeup that make this look… the pink lipstick looks so much more flattering than her usual harsh red, and her hair is gorgeous. On its own the dress pretty but nothing special, but this is the best she’s ever looked IMO.

The shoes aren’t Jimmy Choo… They Christian louboutin. Specifically style, Laminato nappa silver 120mm. Just in case anyone was interested.
