Taylor Swift - ACM Awards 2012 Red Carpet

Taylor Swift is radiant in J Mendel on the red carpet of the 2012 Academy Of Country Music Awards held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday (April 1) in Las Vegas.

The 22-year-old singer, who accessorized with Christian Louboutin shoes and Lorraine Schwartz jewels, is nominated for three awards this evening!

Taylor will be competing for Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, and Video of the Year for her song “Mean”.

For her date for the evening, Taylor was planning on bringing New Jersey teen Kevin Maguire. However, Kevin‘s cancer flared up, and he was unable to make it. We send our thoughts out to him!

“Just talked to Kevin McGuire. He’s not well enough to join me at the ACMs. Please keep him in your thoughts. I’ll make it up to you, Kevin!” Taylor tweeted.

Catch the ACM Awards tonight at 8 pm EST on CBS.

    FINALLY she looks GOOD and not like an over grown 12 year old. I like it.

  • Sam

    She’s got some color to her face. Makes her look 10x better.

  • cool

    hmm she looks like Leona Lewis here

  • Matt

    Taylor is flawless…SO beautiful.

  • justsayin

    For the most part, I really like it. However, I’m not so crazy about that lower design. It gives a weird shape to it. Kelly Osbourne will probably say the tiny tweak that would have made this dress from great to flawless on Fashion Police lol

  • Mary H.

    Wow, she looks great! I almost didn’t recognize her!

  • Mrs. Gaston

    taylor looks great here – a little more grown up. loving her make-up and hair. nice upgrade!

  • tara

    Stick with this make-up artist and hair stylist Taylor!

    They’ve really managed to open her eyes with this make up
    and the hair looks great.

  • Tay tay

    Finally, Taylor’s using her hair and makeup to show off her natural beauty!!!! HALLELUJAH!!!! :D

  • aimee

    this is a great look for her! she should dress like this more often. it suits her age!

  • Effy

    I feel like she is copying or channeling a “Jennifer Lawrence” look with the dress, hair and makeup!

  • Kk

    Gotta say, kinda agree with the Jennifer Lawrence comment. When i saw her i thought it was definitely a Jennifer Lawrence inspired look. Not a fan of hers but it’s nice to see her not dressing like some 13 year old. Finally!

  • Ava

    I agree. I love how she did her makeup. Anyone know how she did it?

  • Marie Martell

    Wow! She looks beautiful!

  • http://website,computer Dave From Canada

  • ashley

  • Buzz


  • Parker

    My vote for best dressed of the night.
    Just gorgeous.
    I love everything about her.
    A class act.

  • http://MOIANU58@YAHOO.COM bella

    I hate her,is so ugly and her music is sucks.

  • http://MOIANU58@YAHOO.COM raluca

    The most ugly girl in the world,Taylor swift should die,i will kill ker.

  • KissThis

    She looks stunning! I have to say though, something about her face is slightly different in these photos. Maybe it’s just the bangs she has now.

  • http://MOIANU58@YAHOO.COM raluca

    This is not a woman,a woman has breasts,Taylor has so breasts.

  • lisa


  • Dave Franco

    Looks very beautiful, but thats what packing so much make-up does… Let me guess? Did she DOMINATED the awards? Probably.

  • lynne thompson

    why did the guys get to sing that were nominated for entertainer of the year, yet Taylor (who won the category) didn’t get a performance opportunity?

  • jilli

    Jake should get back with her. She looks her age now and wouldn’t look weird with him anymore.

  • Jeff

    This Swift girl has evolved from a teeny to a stunning beauty. There are some jealious celebrities out there that could only dream to look like her. And, not to mention some ex-boyfriends that wish she never got away.
