Taylor Swift's red carpet highlights as new album Midnights released

The singer has served a number of designer looks over the years.

Taylor Swift’s highly anticipated new album has finally arrived.

Midnights sees the singer-songwriter returning to a more poppy sound, albeit still with a melancholic mood, after the folky stylings of her last two albums.

In the lead-up to the release, Swift has been wearing retro-inspired looks on social media, with stripy tees, ribbed knitwear and cord trousers.

But judging by the Midnights teaser clip, the 32-year-old will be wearing extravagant outfits in her forthcoming music videos.

To mark the Midnights launch, here is a look back at some of the singer’s most memorable red carpet looks.

Who can forget the night Swift was interrupted by Kanye West while accepting the Best Female Video award?

Rocking a look that was part old Hollywood glamour, part femme fatale, Swift was back at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2013 wearing a figure-hugging, midnight blue Herve Leger gown.

Bringing boho princess vibes to the Time 100 Gala in 2019, Swift chose a pastel pink and yellow J Mendel gown with voluminous sleeves and a smattering of floral embroidery.

Returning to the VMAs stage to collect the Video of the Year award 13 years after the infamous West incident, Swift opted for an Oscar de la Renta number.

The flapper-style minidress featured strings of sparkling embellishment, a halter neck and a low back.

It looked like a shorter, more risque version of her 2009 outfit, and was quickly dubbed the “revenge dress” online by adoring fans.
