Taylor Swift may have skipped the Grammys three weeks ago, but she isn’t letting the winter end without one more great awards show appearance from her. The singer made a surprise appearance at London’s NME Awards tonight. She wore pinstriped shorts and what appears to be a matching two-toned blazer. She accessorized with white bootie heels and a white crossbody bag. It was a great, fashion forward look. Because if there’s any time to go edgy, it’s fashion month. London Fashion Week is about to start, after all.
Swift won Best Solo Act at the ceremony and was especially joyful posing with her award:
Swift’s appearance at the NME Awards comes shortly after her Netflix documentary Miss Americana was released. The film’s director Lana Wilson spoke to ELLE.com about how she built trust with Swift over her years of filming.
“One of the first things she said was, ‘I really don’t like documentaries that feel like propaganda,'” Wilson recalled. “I love that because I don’t like films that push a point of view on the audience. Beyond that though, it was really just spending time together. Taylor hadn’t done an interview in three years when I first met her, and she also had never had anyone film her writing songs in the studio before. It just takes time gradually building the trust. In the case of the recording studio, the first day I filmed her, it was just me with the camera, and I just stayed planted and very still on a chair. Then I might bring in a director of photography the next day, so it’s gradually building up.”
