Noted Feminist™ Taylor Swift came out of her recent hibernation to make an appearance in Houston this weekend, generously agreeing to serve as an opening act of sorts for Lady Gaga's blowout Super Bowl Halftime Show.
Swift played a full concert at a pre-Super Bowl bash Saturday night for a group of lucky fans (and DirectTV), wearing a custom outfit by Versace. It doesn't stray far from Swift's formula: short, sparkly and a little bit swingy. But because this is Versace we're talking about, it also feels sexy thanks to sequined embroidery on sheer panels and sleeves. One day, Swift will give up matching, sparkly booties with every on stage outfit, but Saturday was not that day. She went pretty simple for the hair and makeup, sporting her usual shaggy blonde bob and her go-to red lip. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?
Of course, Swift said that the concert was her only planned for 2017, which means we'll just have to face this upcoming year without the promise of a frothy new album chock-full of "hidden" messages about her famous exes. Somewhere, Calvin Harris and Tom Hiddleston breathe a little easier — for now, at least.
