American Music Awards 2013: Taylor Swift Is Golden On The Red Carpet

Taylor Swift is usually a sure bet for the best dressed list at award ceremonies. Which makes her ensemble at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles tonight (November 24) all the more curious. Instead of opting for chic sophistication like her fellow A-Listers, Tay went for a brassy look.

Rocking a short gold dress and perhaps unintentionally fluffy hairstyle, Taylor looked more like a Las Vegas waitress than an all-conquering country-pop superstar. It’s good to switch things up — she often dresses too old for her age — but this is not the look. She also appears completely miserable, which doesn’t help her cause.

Did Taylor get it wrong this time? You be the judge in the comments below.
