I was beginning to think that Taylor had given up on her glittery gowns and had decided to only wear granny dresses and bows in her hair.

Then she stepped on to the 2013 NRJ Music Awards red carpet in this Ellie Saab mini dress and all my doubts were laid to rest. Thank goodness.

She once again looks like the fashion forward star that we fell for. And by opting for a mini, she's managed to reinvent herself and add a fresh take on her sparkly dresses that she's known for. And pairing it with those metallic strappy heels? Well played, Miss Swift.

And can we just spend a moment on her hair and make-up? Those bangs are to die for and I can't remember when last smokey eyes looked that good.

Yay for Taylor!
