Taylor Swift has continued with her pastel streak by wearing a lilac dress to the 2019 Billboard Music Awards.

Almost a week after dropping her new single ME!, the singer made a splash on the red carpet at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Wednesday night (01May19) when she stepped out in a light purple skater-style minidress from Raisa & Vanessa.

Taylor accessorised with matching high heels from Casadei, and a star-studded ear cuff, while her make-up artist Lorrie Turk completed the look by giving her a sweep of lavender-coloured eyeshadow on her lids and slick of rose-pink lipstick.

With her upcoming seventh studio album, Taylor has recently adopted a new pastel-shaded aesthetic, having been spotted out and about in New York City with pink dip-dyed hair and floral-printed dresses, while she also helped to design the peach and yellow-coloured J. Mendel gown that she wore to the recent Time 100 Gala.

In addition, the superstar has been curating her Instagram page to reflect her new theme, with the account now featuring close-up images of pink sequin fabric, a light blue bicycle, heart-shaped jewellery, pastel tiles, and pink and yellow handbags.

Other celebrities to make sartorial statements at the Billboard Music Awards included Cardi B, who rocked a canary yellow skirt and top from Moschino, and Diplo, who opted for a purple and gold cowboy-inspired suit.

Ciara wowed in a black dress with flowing train from Stephane Rolland, actress Olivia Wilde dazzled in a gold Ralph Lauren number, and Jennifer Hudson opted for a brown Area Suit with crystal detailing, which she matched with Stuart Weitzman shoes and The Residency earrings.

Sophie Turner, who wed fiance Joe Jonas following the ceremony, sported head-to-toe Louis Vuitton, while her sister-in-law Priyanka Chopra looked stunning in a white Zuhair Murad Couture ensemble.

Elsewhere, Halsey turned heads in a blue satin and black lace dress, which she matched with dramatic make-up and purple lipstick, and rapper Yung Miami rocked a neon green tulle dress from Oyemwen and bright yellow Christian Louboutin pumps.

Taylor Swift took Cats role to understand her own beloved pets

Taylor Swift said yes to a role in the new movie version of stage musical Cats to learn more about her own feline friends Olivia and Meredith.

The Bad Blood singer, 29, dotes on her two furry companions, who she named as her number one inspiration in a chat with Time magazine after being named on their list of the world’s 100 most influential people.

Taylor will star as Bombalurina in Tom Hooper’s new adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical, and says she took the part for her pets – as she got to go to “cat school”, where the movie’s cast learned all about feline mannerisms.

“I love my cats so much that when a role came up in a movie called Cats, I just thought, I’ve got to do this,” she says. “This is my calling in life to do this for the ladies. So I went to cat school, which they have on set readily available for us. Learned how to be as much like a cat as I possibly could.”

The star also admits to being “obsessed” with Olivia and Meredith, stating they are a “joy to live with”, and placed them above Paul McCartney and the Tumblr website as her biggest influences.

Fans of the singer are also speculating that she has added to her cat brood, as the video for her new single ME! features Panic! at the Disco singer Brendon Urie gifting her a new puss.

Ahead of its release, she told Swifties that the video would reveal something new about her life, tweeting: “There’s a secret in the video I’ve been keeping for months – let’s see who can guess it.”

A mural Taylor unveiled in her hometown of Nashville, Tennessee on Thursday (25Apr19) also features three rather than two cats – adding to the rumours she’s become mum to a third moggy. A representative for the popstar did not respond to a request for comment on the matter.
