Taylor Swift Rocks a Short LBD for the Z100 Jingle Ball 2012

Days prior to the release of her “I Knew You Were Trouble” video, as well as the launch of her RED Keds limited edition sneakers, Taylor Swift pulled an interesting stunt at Z100’s Jingle Ball 2012 event. Instead of her usual retro girly, fit n’ flare, light and ladylike frocks, the country cutie opted for a short, figure-skimming little black dress, and capped it off with her signature red lips, a pair of black peep-toes, and a half-do with lots of fringes:

We have to admit, this was very refreshing to see. We can’t say we we’re glad that she still kept it demure with those Jimmy Choo peep toes (booties or platform sandals would have given the look extra oomph), but that sexy LBD was a good enough start if her intention was to break away from her former “package”.

The slight change in appearance may be due to her recent promotion of “I Knew You Were Trouble”.  If you’ve seen the video on MTV, then you’ll understand why. If you haven’t, then check out the preview below:

Now on to Taylor’s intriguing black dress; that is reportedly a David Koma. What makes it extra special? Well, if you look closer, it features triangular panels made of patent leather on the sides.

If you’re interested, the only store that sells David Koma online is LuisaViaRoma and at the moment, they don’t have Taylor’s dress. However, these one-of-a-kind pieces fashioned with leather trimming are available over there:

David Koma dresses are very pricey so if you’re looking to save money, here are a couple of alternatives from Twenty and Bailey 44 that can work if you want to steal Taylor’s LBD style:
