Taylor Swift Attended The IHeartRadio Music Awards In An LBD That Showed Off Her $40 Million Legs

If you can count on anyone to rock a mini dress, clearly, it’s Taylor Swift. Swift attended the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday night in a little (emphasis on little) black dress that was anything but basic.

The “Blank Space” singer, who is nominated and presenting at the 2015 awards show, walked the red carpet at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, and took another opportunity to remind us all why exactly her legs are worth $40 million. And even though an LBD might seem a bit boring for a music awards show, Swiftie’s KAUFMANFRANCO number certainly dispelled that notion. The black mini dress was sleeveless and full of sparkles, with some side cut outs for a bit of edge (and a bit more skin), and she paired it with strappy, black Tamara Mellon heels. Tay ditched the red lip and opted instead for a dark and smokey eye, and had her blonde bob styled in shaggy waves.

It’s not my favorite look I’ve ever seen her in, but it did the job and made her look like the glittering star that she is. And really, who’s looking at the dress when she’s got her legs on display, anyway?

You’ll be seeing this color everywhere in 2015

Pantone, the company that considers itself the authority on colors in consumer trends, announced in December that marsala was its pick for 2015’s color of the year. Pantone called it “a naturally robust and earthy wine red,” that’s “subtly seductive.” Here, a model walks the runway in marsala during the Mikael D show at Fashion Week in Toronto.

In 2014, radiant orchid won out. Pantone, a subsidiary of X-Rite, makes its annual color choice by surveying fashion executives and following trends in travel, music, movies and technology.

In 2013, emerald was Pantone’s choice for color of the year. The company called it a “symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity.”

Tangerine tango was Pantone’s pick for color of the year in 2012.

Honeysuckle was the color of the year in 2011.

Turquoise rose to the top of Pantone’s color picks in 2010.

Toodle-oo, radiant orchid. And oh, emerald, we’d basically forgotten you already.

The newly announced 2015 color of the year is marsala, “a naturally robust and earthy wine red” that’s “subtly seductive,” according to the color mavens at Pantone.

“Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness,” Pantone announced this week.

Yes, marsala, like the red Sicilian wine you might have splashed on an especially sophisticated chicken breast.

New Jersey-based Pantone, a subsidiary of X-rite, picks a new color every year based on the opinions of fashionistas as well as insiders from music, travel, movies and technology. Radiant orchid won the honor in 2014, while emerald was the top choice in 2013.

This year’s shade appeals to men and women, and is flattering on many skin tones, “a great go-to color for beauty,” Pantone said. Within a few weeks of the announcement, the color typically begins to pop up on products from evening gowns to coffee makers.
