Everyone knows that America's sweetheart, Taylor Swift, can play the good-girl role to a tee. But who knew she could also rock a startlingly grown-up, almost naughty side as well? The singer showed off both of these dueling devil-angel styles during her Sunday night show in Washington D.C.
"Bad" Taylor took the stage dressed in an outfit quite divergent from her usual floaty, ethereal costumes--a black bra-style top and satin hotpants, accessorized with knee-high boots and wildly tousled hair. Appropriately, a troupe of masked male dancers fell at her feet.
Those who prefer "good" Taylor needn't worry. She made an appearance as well; choosing a beautiful white gown, bare feet (reminiscent of her stripped-down "Safe And Sound" video)--and a handsome Prince Charming-style escort.
Despite her occasional flirtations with sultry looks, Swift actually is one of very few successful young starlets who has been able to maintain a solidly wholesome vibe throughout her career. Unlike Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, and even her own pal Selena Gomez, Swift's overriding image has remained kid-tested and mother-approved over the years.
Swift will be busy all through the rest of the year on her Red tour. She wraps the North American leg September 21 in Nashville, and has just added Australia and New Zealand to her schedule. You can find out when she's coming to your city by checking here.
