Taylor Swift’s jewel-adorned MTV awards look was inspired by Queen Elizabeth II

Written by Leah Dolan, CNN

Taylor Swift arrived at MTV’s Europe Music Awards last night in Düsseldorf, Germany in an evening gown that flipped the scripts on red carpet jewelry.

With her decolletage and wrists left entirely bare, Swift opted for just a few silver rings and a spiral of studded ear cuffs on each ear — but her outfit was far from lacking in adornments. Instead of the conventional smatterings of jewels, Swift stepped out in a cascading midi skirt made entirely from a shimmering net of handmade silver and green crystals.

The custom David Koma look, a nod to the designer’s Fall-Winter 2023 collection, was paired with a black spaghetti-strap body and open toed sling-backs. The skirt’s emerald-toned jewels were inspired by the late Queen Elizabeth II’s own emerald collection, according to a spokesperson the label.

Away from the red carpet, Swift became the evening’s top winning artist, scooping up four awards including Best Artist, Best Video, Best Pop and Best Longform Video for “All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version).”

The pop star wore a second David Koma look to accept the braces on stage: A black and silver crystalized polo-shirt dress acted as the perfect backdrop to her armful of silver MTV trophies.
