TAYLOR SWIFT AND THE ERAS TOUR: THE LOOKS DEFINING HER TRAJECTORY
Taylor Swift has taken over stadiums, headlines and entire cities with The Eras Tour. The 52-stop stadium show is separated into 10 acts with performances from every album of her extensive discography. Throughout the show, Swift has major costume changes channeling the aesthetics of every “era” she’s ever had.
It’s safe to say that the hype for this tour is unmatched. Following the Ticketmaster fiasco, leading to public sales of the tickets being canceled due to overwhelming demand, Swift sold out every show, breaking attendance records at stadiums.
The show is three hours and 15 minutes of nostalgia, theatrics and a whole lot of outfits. Kicking off with a pink, purple and blue bedazzled Atelier Versace bodysuit and Christian Louboutin knee-high boots — tying in the lighthearted, pastel vibes of her “Lover” era, Swift then changes into a sparkly Versace blazer for her iconic song “The Man”.
To transition into her “Fearless” set, the singer changes into a Roberto Cavalli golden fringe dress, reminiscent of her iconic look from the “Speak Now” tour in 2011, also by Cavalli. Swift wears Etro for her “Evermore” era, for some shows a yellow dress with a corset top and elegant beading, and other nights wearing a burgundy Etro floor-length dress with ruffles. She then makes a complete 180, trading the woodsy vibe to a black one-legged Roberto Cavalli catsuit patterned with red sequined snakes signifying her “Reputation” era.
A more romantic era is portrayed with ballgowns in variations of pink tones with different embroidery, sparkles and beading signed by Nicole + Felicia, Zuhair Murad and Elie Saab for the “Speak Now” set.
For “Red” Swift wore recreations of her “22” music video outfit, like a shirt that reads "a lot going on at the moment" with a fedora and shorts, and a black and red ombré romper by Ashish. A more casual look recreated with flats and twirls, and flowy Alberta Ferretti dresses with billowing sleeves represents “Folklore”.
Finally, for her closing set, Swift transitions into her most recent era — “Midnights”. As a clin d’oeil to her “Lavender Haze” music video, she wears an Oscar de la Renta crystal dress with a lavender Oscar de la Renta faux fur coat, as well as a midnight blue beaded bodysuit, also by Oscar de la Renta.
Taylor Swift has astonished her followers with each look, representing every part of her career, and showcasing her most iconic moments since her self-titled album when she was 17.
