Ahead of the MTV VMAs tonight, Taylor Swift has spent the past couple days in New York City. After partying with Blackpink’s Rosé, Cara Delevingne, and more stars at Electric Lady Studio on September 9, Swift got dinner with another set of A-listers on Monday. She was photographed out with Gigi Hadid, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Zoë Kravitz, and her boyfriend Channing Tatum. The group ate at Emilio’s Ballato, an Italian restaurant in Nolita.
How did Swift dress for the occasion? In a flirty blue knit minidress from Alaïa. She completed the look with a cream Mansur Gavriel bag and light blue Prada block heels. She styled her hair in a low ponytail and wore a statement red lip. Hadid was snapped next to her wearing a darker outfit.
Swift will likely be out again tonight, as she is nominated for eight awards at the MTV VMAs. She is the most nominated musician for this year’s ceremony.
While Swift is on a break from her Eras tour, which just wrapped its first leg, she has two new projects coming: her Eras tour film, out in theaters on October 13, and the re-recording of 1989 (Taylor’s Version), out on October 27.
“The 1989 album changed my life in countless ways, and it fills me with such excitement to announce that my version of it will be out October 27th,” Swift wrote on Instagram when sharing the news. “To be perfectly honest, this is my most FAVORITE re-record I’ve ever done because the 5 From The Vault tracks are so insane. I can’t believe they were ever left behind. But not for long!”
