Taylor Swift made quite the fashion statement at the 2016 CMA Awards with her daring outfit choice. Known for her more modest style in the past, Taylor has recently been embracing a sexier image. This time, she took it to a whole new level.
After a three-year absence from the CMAs, Taylor surprised everyone by appearing at the awards show in Nashville, Tennessee. She was there to present the prestigious Entertainer of the Year award. However, it was her dress that stole the spotlight. Designed by Julien MacDonald, the dress featured provocative cutouts that showcased her toned abs and obliques, a backless design with intricate straps, and a thigh-high slit that left little to the imagination. To add to the allure, the dress was mostly sheer.
For someone like Taylor Swift, who typically opts for more conservative attire, this was a bold choice. But when you’re presenting the biggest award of the night, it’s only natural to want to make a lasting impression.
In her opening remarks, Taylor acknowledged the significance of the moment. She expressed her gratitude for the artists in the industry who have inspired her throughout her journey. She said, “It’s been almost 13 years since I came [here] with a dream to be a songwriter and recording artist, and I learned so much about what it means to be an entertainer from the remarkable artists in this arena tonight. That’s one of the reasons I feel so honored to present this award to any one of these five outstanding nominees for Entertainer of the Year and be a part of this historic night we will always remember.”
Ultimately, the Entertainer of the Year award went to Garth Brooks. Taylor graciously presented him with the award and shared a warm embrace on stage.
Taylor Swift’s bold fashion choice at the 2016 CMA Awards marked a departure from her usual style, showcasing her willingness to embrace a more daring image. It was a night that won’t be forgotten anytime soon in the world of country music.
