All hail queen Taylor Swift, who is not kidding around when it comes to her wardrobe for the long-awaited Eras Tour.
While we are used to seeing big pop artists opt for only a handful of looks throughout their set, Swift smashed that out of the park on opening night, going for 13 outfits throughout the evening. A very apt number, true Swifties will know why.
Whether it was her fringed, sparkly Roberto Cavalli mini dress for Fearless, or her dusty purple Alberta Ferretti custom cottage-core gown for Folklore, we just couldn’t get enough. The pop star served even more looks for night two, also located in Glendale, Arizona, which has been temporarily rechristened ‘Swift City’ while she’s performing there.
And while many of her fans are still grieving over not being able to secure concert tickets, we can indulge in the numerous Twitter and Instagram posts from Swift’s Eras tour, and appreciate her stunning outfits and awe-inspiring performances virtually, right?
Here are all the details you need to know about Swift’s best fashion moments from her sold-out tour.
Act I: Lover
The dreamy, synth-pop sounds of Lover called for this bejewelled custom Versace bodysuit in baby pink and blue that made Swift look like a life-sized Barbie doll. The musician’s stylist Joseph Cassell partnered with Christian Louboutin for Eras, and the singer donned a pair of knee-length studded silver boots from the French house for this look.
Act II: Fearless
Referencing her Speak Now era when Swift performed in a 1920s-style Flapper dress, the musician partnered with Roberto Cavalli yet again and upped the glam quotient in a champagne-coloured dress with shimmery fringes that lit the stadium up as she danced to her own catchy tunes.
Act III: Evermore
For this cottagecore-inspired album, it only made sense for Swift to dial down the glam and embrace a cosy and bohemian look in this yellow-orange floor-length gown by Etro. She crooned to album hits including ‘Willow’, ‘Champagne Problems,’ ‘Marjorie,’ and more.
Act IV: Reputation
As a nod to her Reputation “bad gal” era, the singer went back to her fierce avatar as she changed into an asymmetrical beaded one-piece whose main feature was the giant Roberto Cavalli snake in ruby red that wrapped her body.
Act V: Speak Now
Shimmering under the stage lights while crooning to a Speak Now classic, Swift ‘enchanted’ the audience in a crystal-embellished ballgown by Nicole + Felicia Couture that had her looking nothing less than a princess straight out of a Charles Perrault fairy tale.
For her second night performing the same track, the hitmaker wore a pink tulle ball gown from Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad featuring a starburst bodice with glimmering details and a cross-strap back.
Act VI: Red
Swift donned an updated version of her iconic white T-shirt from the ‘22’ music video, created by Indian-born designer Ashish. The original T-shirt read “Not a lot going on at the moment,” but the musician’s latest outfit eliminated the first word.
The songwriter wore a sequined ombré coat in shades of red and black, along with a matching bodysuit, for her performance of the emotional 10-minute song ‘All Too Well,’ which is believed to be about her former partner Jake Gyllenhaal.
Act VII: Folklore
Swift opted for a more subdued look next, donning a romantic ruffled mauve gown by Alberta Ferretti that exuded a vintage, bohemian vibe from the 1970s.
On the second night of her ballad performances, the singer wore a custom tiered cream gown by the Italian dressmaker with voluminous sleeves, intricate beaded embroidery, and crystal embellishments, while performing songs from her indie folk album, including ‘Seven,’ ‘Betty,’ ‘August,’ ‘Cardigan,’ among others.
Act VIII: 1989
Taylor returned to her electro-pop roots in a Swarovski-drenched fuchsia two-piece designed by Fausto Puglisi, creative director of Roberto Cavalli, as she performed her top hits ‘Style,’ ‘Blank Space,’ ‘Shake It Off,’ ‘Wildest Dreams,’ and ‘Bad Blood.’
Act IX: Taylor Swift
Taylor had TWO surprise songs tonight: State of Grace acoustic and This Is Me Trying There were no songs from the debut album (Tim McGraw) because of this! #TSmidnighTSpic.twitter.com/Xio0osWriW— Taylor Swift Updates (@SwiftNYC) March 19, 2023
Swift revisited her country music origins by donning ruffled magenta and green dresses on both nights while performing ‘Tim McGraw.’
Act X: Midnights
As the grand finale of her 44-song set, Swift closed the career-spanning concert with performances from her latest album, Midnights. The artist opted for two custom-made Oscar de la Renta outfits for the occasion, the first being a midnight bodysuit embroidered with sequins and crystals and featuring draped fringe necklaces.
Channeling the aesthetic of her song, Swift wore an aurora borealis sequin embroidered t-shirt along with a matching faux fur coat in the same hue for her performance of ‘Lavender Haze.’
