Taylor Swift shines at the MTV Video Music Awards, despite Kanye West

September 14, 2009 |  1:35 pm


It may have been a controversial moment during last night’s MTV Video Music Awards, but despite being upstaged by Kanye West’s antics while accepting her “Best Female Video” award, it was impossible to ignore how radiant Taylor Swift looked in her glittering, one-shoulder Kaufman Franco gown.

At first I thought she looked too glam and sophisticated for an awards show that usually has pop stars donning pasties, lace veils and anything that screams “look at me!”, but it was nice to see Swift’s chic and understated style shine through a sea of hot messes and over-styled musicians.

What do you think?  Should Taylor Swift start wearing more in-your-face pop star duds or is she better off sticking to her subtle style?
