Taylor Swift: 'Love Story' Music Video - Part 1

"See the lights, see the party the ballgowns, see you make your way through the crowd and say hello...little did I know..."

I fell in love with Taylor Swifts music video, Love Story quite awhile ago, I thought it would be fun to take a closer look at the beautiful dresses she wears. :)
The dress Taylor wears at the ball looks as though it's inspired by 18th Century gowns, while the gentlemen remind me of Regency. The setting is beautiful, candlelight and ballgowns...
"That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles and my daddy said stay away from Juliet, and I was crying on the staircase begging you please don't go..."
The front of her dress comes down to a "V" and there is lacing across the stomacher:
"And I said...Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone, I'll be waiting, all there's left to do is run, you'll be the prince and I'll be the's a love story baby just say yes."
The back of her dress:
"So I sneak out to the garden to see you, we keep quiet 'cause we're dead if they knew, so close your eyes, just leave this town for a little while..."

"'Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter and my daddy said stay away from Juliet..."
Here you can see her sleeves better:

"But you were everything to me I was begging you please don't go..."
The sleeves are trimmed in delicate lace:

Although I continually talk about movie costumes on this blog, I am not a movie reviewer. Not all the films I discuss are recommended and I do not choose to review weather they are appropriate or not for the simple fact that every person's standards are different. Something that is fine for me may be offensive to some one else and visa versa. If you would like to look into the appropriateness of a title, I recommend I have not seen all the movies I discuss, and am simply interested in the art of clothes in film. I will leave you to decide for yourself if you will watch the movie or not.
