Taylor Swift loves a theme. After winning video of the year at the 2022 MTV VMAs, the artist casually confirmed her next album, “Midnights,” is coming soon on Oct. 21. Backstage at the award show, Swift swapped her striking Oscar de la Renta naked dress for a midnight-blue silk romper from Moschino for the Republic Records afterparty on Sunday evening.
Featuring sequin star embellishments and a sweetheart bust lined with crystals, the singer’s celestial look was appropriate considering “Midnights” will include “the stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout [Swift’s] life,” according to her album artwork, which also shows Swift wearing vibrant blue eye makeup. She paired the starry playsuit with sparkly platform heels, diamond earrings, and white faux fur draped over her arms. Her floating crystal liner and signature red lip from the award show stayed with her through the afterparty.
Swift made a surprise appearance at the VMAs earlier that night, dazzling on the red carpet in a sheer minidress covered in thousands of draped crystals of different shapes and sizes. Resembling a mirrorball, the bejeweled dress was an unexpected choice for the “All Too Well” singer. Though Swift’s public appearances are few and far between lately, at the Tribeca Film Festival in June, she arrived in a cool navy pinstripe Max Mara pantsuit, while she paired her purple cap and gown with a chic pair of leopard pumps when she received her honorary doctorate of fine arts from New York University.
