MTV VMAs 2014: Taylor Swift Looks Like A Praying Mantis

Taylor Swift is really embracing her switch to pop music. “Shake It Off” is an upbeat toe-tapper, she (controversially) put her own spin on twerking in the dorky video and today (August 24) walked the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards in a tiny one-piece leotard (?) that revealed more than many of us wanted to see. Take that, Miley Cyrus!

This look raises so many questions. The first of which is obviously — what was she thinking? Taylor’s slim frame makes her the perfect clothes horse for elegant gowns but she resembles a baby blue bean pole in this outfit. The 24-year-old also looks uncomfortable and a little embarrassed. On the other hand, at least she’s having fun and trying to mix it up instead of dressing like a 47-year-old socialite. So yay?
