OFFSTAGE: Voters Say Taylor Swift’s Prim Look Is Just Right

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Oh, E! You and your fashion police are always trying to stir up Taylor Swift trouble. But your readers voted, and the overwhelming majority of them love Swift’s prim look at the Radio One Teen Awards in London . You wanted her to do something a little crazier than just an elegant white cocktail dress and pumps. Neon shoes, bright pink MAC lipstick, crimped hair, ombre hair — all good suggestions, but just not for Swift. “Live, Taylor, live, before the Kennedy clan descends upon you and swallows you whole in a cloud of bullet bras and slips and hairspray and sensible pumps,” E! suggests. But I think Swift’s classy look looks just right for who she is now and who she will one day become.
