Taylor Swift Tries the Bandage Dress Look…Nails It!

Our Country

She's been experimenting with a variety of naughtier looks lately, but perennial good-girl Taylor Swift finally nailed the perfect mix of classy/sexy Sunday when she rocked a striking Herve Leger dress at the MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto.

Swift, who took home the Favorite International Artist trophy of the night, showed off her toned curves in the tight-fitting gown — resulting in a distinctly mature but still perfectly respectable look. Caged sandals added yet another bit of super-stylish edge to the ensemble.

Donning Herve Leger may be nothing new for most starlets (fellow country babes who've tried the designer's signature bandage gown are Miranda Lambert — who sported one on her Four The Record album cover — and Kellie Pickler). However, it's definitely a new look for Swift, whose overriding aesthetic has always been soft and romantic rather than cutting-edge.

In fact, just a few days earlier, she showed off her signature style at the Fragrance Foundation Awards in New York, choosing a typical-for-her ethereal gown with sheer panels.

While we'll always love the ultra-girly Swift, even traditionalists have to admit the superstar looked fantastic all "bandaged" up!

Speaking of bandages: Swift is currently on her Red tour with buddy Ed Sheeran, and both have been sharing crazy stories from the road--including one in which she nearly was stabbed by a sword the redheaded singer brought along on a plane.

Apparently, Sheeran received the sword from Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson. He inadvertently left it on a table during a flight to Nashville, with near-disastrous results. "The plane is kind of taking off and [the sword] started sliding down and I was like, 'No!'" he told MTV. "It was just about to impale Taylor."

Luckily, all she ended up with was a bandage dress out of the incident. You can keep up with the Red tour schedule here.
