Taylor Swift Shines

TaylorSwiftBy now, I’m sure almost everyone out there has heard about what happened to Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night.  For those of you who may have missed it, Taylor won a moonman for best female video.  While giving her acceptance speech, Kanye West rushed the stage, took her microphone and proceeded to tell the audience that Beyonce should have won the award instead.  It was an incredibly awkward situation that Taylor was able to handle with grace and dignity.

Taylor continued the trend this morning on The ViewShe expressed her interest in meeting with Kanye and described her thoughts during the whole ordeal.  As you can imagine it took her a few seconds to figure out what was really going on:

“My overall thought process went something like, ‘Wow, I can’t believe I won. This is awesome. Don’t trip and fall. I’m going to get to thank the fans, this is so cool … Oh, Kanye West is here! Cool haircut! What are you doing there? And then, ouch. And then, I guess I’m not going to thank the fans.’ ”  (Taylor Swift, via

I’m very impressed by this nineteen-year-old’s ability to handle such an extraordinary situation.  Her attitude and poise truly make her a great role model for other young people to look up to.  She went on to perform one of her hit songs, You Belong with Me, live on an NYC subway train and then the top of a cab.  Under normal circumstances, the performance would have JessicaSimpsonLizzaRedbeen pretty amazing.  Knowing what she had been through only minutes before makes the whole thing even more incredible.

Taylor is pictured here in the dress she wore during her performance.  She exchanged the nude pumps she wore during her song for a pair of red high heels.  This is one instance where I love the complete color coordination of her outfit. The red shoes, dress and lips are perfect for an event like the VMAs.  If you want to copy her shoe style, take a look at the Jessica Simpson Lizza Pump. A perfect pump at the perfect price.
