taylor swift, corpse bride

a little unsolicited advice for taylor swift:
if i had to guess, i would say that taylor swift's favorite color is blah. with a little variation with a whiter shade of pale. she's lovely girl with a talent for making music that country and pop stations LOVE to play to death. and sometimes you may even catch me singing along. mostly her song, fifteen. she just nails my teenage angst in that one. but poor taylor seems to have an aversion to 99% of the color wheel.
sometimes ms. swift looks just lovely. she is a sweet dream in this creamy, romantic ruby-lipped look: but then we see the same monochromatic skin-hair-dress look over,

and over,

and over,

and over,

again. yawn.

she is obviously determined to look like a corpe bride. the only thing that separates her is the red lips.

but check out how va va va VOOOM! ms. swift can look in a little blue. like a country heart-break singing mermaid. and if she wants to use that as her next song title, more power to her!

so, for the love of country music and sequined petticoats, let's branch out ms. swift. and i'll keep listening to fifteen, rehashing why i was a teenage outcast.

i think she might rock those nudes and whites over and over because they look good on her... and some (not all) brights can make her look a bit childish... but i never noticed till you put this together just how often she rocks the same color scheme! totally needs some color in there!
ps have i told you lately you are awesome? well, you are... i LOVE to actually read you blog... not just look at the pictures!

I think the difference between Taylor and white and Heidi and black is that black doesn't wash Heidi out. Girl, you rock black like nobody's biz-nas! With Taylor's fair coloring and blonde hair, white white just ain't gonna cut it. She needs more of a creamy white.

Heidi, I think you should do a whole week's worth of outfits only wearing black. Like Black Sabbath, but for the whole week!

(And PS - I don't think you wear black all the time. I actually think you have a varied wardrobe full of different colors. You rock HABS!)

she really should wear color more! white / off-white must be her comfort color. i do like her music though! it's too bad radio stations play all her songs out, because then the songs just get super annoying.

i don't really care for taylor musically, but as a person, i think she is HIL-AR-I-OUS. when she hosted saturday night live i was laughing out loud at just about everything she did. so, now i think she's a super cool chick even though i don't think she's that great of a singer. not that that has anything to do with what she wears...

Steve said...

Zzzzzzz, I find her so boring, both musically and personally/physically. She does nothing for me, ha. I just never get why she is so popular.

Elaine said...

Hahahaha, you're so right.. She is pretty boring..

Paula said...

I have noticed this as well. I guess someone told her once that white/off white was her color and she just stuck with it. Or maybe her manager wants her in white so she appears innocent? Whatever the reason it is just overkill. I also ♦feel this way about Angelina Jolie. She is always in baggy black clothes 95% of the time. She can't rock the black like you do.

I love her blue dress!

i just saw this on your side link as the most popular post. i remember reading this way back then and thinking the same thing about taylor- she wears these boring cream colored things- one note wonder in the fashion dept. HOWEVER- i feel like recently she has worn more different dresses/outfits... i'd love for you to do a follow up post to this one on taylor swift and her fashion evolution. i think it would be a fun post.
