Taylor Swift has never been afraid of wearing red, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen her in this color red — and it looks amazing on her. Call it Burgundy, cranberry, maroon or oxblood (if you’re nasty), I think TayTay may have found her all-growns-up signature color. And I love how she’s gone monochromatic from lips to toe — although I’m not sure I’m a fan of those shooties. Mostly because their existence forces me to use the word “shootie” in a sentence, but that’s not really Taylor’s fault. Otherwise, well played, girl! [Photos: Getty]
You know she is freaking out about this: Taylor Swift is gearing up to perform at Kensington Palace this month for William and Kate! On November 26, she will serenade the royals and their attendees at the Winter Whites Gala, which will benefit Centrepoint, a charity that assists homeless young people. Taylor is “really stoked” about the invitation and “very, very honored.” This is her first performance at a royal engagement, and says she’s practicing her etiquette to get ready. When she was asked how she’ll address Prince William, Taylor said it would be presumptuous of her to assume she’d get to speak to them at all. “First, I’ll just be polite enough to not assume I’m going to get to meet them,” she said. Awww, what a well-mannered thing to say. James Blunt will also be performing, as will Jon Bon Jovi, who will win a special award for his humanitarian work. Something tells me Taylor will be the only one who gets invited over by Kate afterwards to hang out.

One of my favorite fall looks is a breezy summer dress paired with black tights, as modeled here by the lovely Taylor Swift, whom I saw in concert a few weeks ago and was totally blown away by both her musical talent and the sheer perfection of her bangs. But anyway, I rounded up everything you’ll need to recreate Tay-Tay’s fabulous outfit — just add black tights (and a guitar case if you want to be really literal) and you’re good to go!

The best part about dressing up as Taylor Swift in the music video for “22″? It’s made up entirely of pieces you’ll wear again and again. Well, maybe not the heart sunglasses. You can give those to your niece or raver friend or save them for next year’s “Lolita” costume. Whatever. To make sure everyone understands you’re dressed up as Taylor Swift, bring along a guitar and an ex-boyfriend voodoo doll. Feeling 22? I should hope so. Details after the jump! Keep reading »

Soon, Lois Lowry’s beloved novel The Giver will join the ranks of young adult books that have made it to the big screen. Come on, you know you’ve been waiting for this since you were twelve and checked it out of the school library. It’s one of the classic dystopias for young readers, with its creepy community of too-perfect people who see everything in black and white (literally). Read more at The Mary Sue…
