Taylor Swift Proves She’s An Epitome Of Glitz And Glamour In A Diamante-Studded Leotard
All of Taylor’s outfits are just as remarkable as her music and flawless vocals.
She opened her Eras Tour concert at the Allegiant Stadium, which has a 65,000-seat capacity, and Taylor Swift didn’t hesitate to wow her audience with several show-stopping looks. The 33-year-old stormed the stage with glamour and belted out her top hits at the stadium, which is home to the Las Vegas Raiders football team.
Going back to her roots, the Mean hitmaker busted out her acoustic guitar which her parents had helped her bedazzle.
One of the looks saw Taylor in a sparkly rhinestone bodysuit that highlighted her long legs. The Grammy Award-winning singer strutted them in a pair of beautiful Christian Louboutin boots and they added height to her frame. Taylor’s native golden blonde hair swept down her back in straightened strands and her fringe was bumped under.
The look was completed with the signature ruby red lip and an amount of hot pink blush on her cheeks.
Taylor also lined her blue eyes in black and swiped shimmery shadow on her lids. She even carried a blinged-out microphone in hand and confidently danced around the stage with a lengthy catwalk.
The concert is specifically a career retrospective that spans 10 studio albums and countless singles. Another of Taylor’s outfits was a 1920s-inspired gold and silver fringe dress that sparkled under the stage lights. It had a sweetheart neckline. Accordingly, the singer went full boss babe in a crystal-covered blazer and matching mini shorts that paired perfectly with the knee-high Louboutin boots.
With the crystal-covered blazer and matching mini shorts, Taylor performed within an office-inspired set that included a rolling chair and a desk.
She also did ditch the rhinestone and remerged in an orange boho style maxi dress and brown suede boots.
As Taylor kicked off her Eras Tour at the State Farm Stadium, where the Super Bowl was held last month, she was left in tears as she paid tribute to her late grandmother, Marjorie Finlay. The pop artist got emotional during her performance of the 2020 song, which was named after her maternal grandparent. Videos were captured and shared online by fans in the audience.
“Such a beautiful tribute to Marjorie [pictured with young Taylor],” TikTok user mlpowers007 shared.
Notably, fans had been introduced to the heartfelt song in December 2020 when Taylor dropped the album Evermore. It came just 5 months after the release of her album Folklore. When she put the music out, Taylor explained that Marjorie was written with her grandmother in mind, while noting that “she still visits me sometimes…if only in my dreams.’
The lyrics of the song recount timeless advice passed on by Finlay, who passed in 2003 as Taylor included the line: “Never be so kind you forget to be clever and never be so clever you forget to be kind.”
Taylor also highlighted Marjorie’s career as an opera singer with the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra. And the most touching of the recording is the sound of Finlay’s vocals supporting Taylor in the background. At the time of the music release, the pop star said: “My mom found a bunch of her old records of her singing opera and I sent them to Aaron Dessner and he added them to the song.”
Taylor also emphasized: “If I didn’t know better, I’d think you were singing to me now, and then you hear her, you hear Marjorie actually sing.”
Sadly, the late singer never saw her granddaughter follow in her musical footsteps. Finlay passed when Taylor was 13, one year before she signed her first record deal. Elsewhere in the dedication, Taylor reflected on her grandma’s aspirations as she sings: “all your closets of backlogged dreams/And how you left them all to me.
Reacting to Marjorie’s voice echoes through the stadium, another fan had commented under video outtakes from the performance: “She took Marjorie’s backlogged dreams out of the closet and into the big state for the whole world to hear.”
Someone else added: “She took Marjorie’s backlogged dreams out of the closet and into the big stage for the whole world to hear.”
The U.S. leg of Taylor’s 6th headlining tour will be taking the country by storm for the next five months, concluding with Los Angeles concerts in August. Following her most recent performance, the 12th-time Grammy winner took to Instagram, writing: “WELL. Last night was a rush. Thank you to everyone in that glorious Glendale night 2 crowd for giving us all you had and more. Counting down the hours till we get to play again. See you in Vegas.”
She had been joined by her latest opening acts beabadoobee (pictured) and Gayle.
However, the concert comes as Taylor made a series of donations to local food banks in cities, she’s visiting on her The Eras Tour.
She was recently praised in an Instagram post by the Three-Square Foodbank, a Nevada-based nonprofit after a contribution to the organization described as generous. The organization said: “We don’t know about you, but we’re feeling grateful on this day, March 22!” alongside a collage of images of the Anti-Hero artist.
They added: “@Taylorswift has made a generous gift to Three Square, allowing us to provide thousands of meals to families and individuals struggling with hunger. Thank you to Ms. Swift for supporting our mission and the local community.”
The singer, known for the song “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” also recently donated to the Arizona Food Bank Network. The organization’s vice president of external relations Terri Shoemaker told the outlet AZ Central: “It’s not every day that you get a call from someone who works for Taylor Swift, so we were dubious at first, but happily, it turned out to be absolutely real.”
