Taylor Swift Ditches Her Red Lip and Shows Off Vacation Glow for Virtual iHeartRadio Awards Speech

The artist of the year winner changed up her signature look for the video message



Taylor Swift is embracing a new look.

The star, 34, appeared virtually to accept the award for artist of the year at Monday’s 11th annual iHeartRadio Music Awards. Swift wasn’t able to attend the event in person but made sure to let the audience know how much she appreciated the coveted, fan-voted award.

She also made a splash by donning a petal pink lip color, a departure from her signature red lip. In the pre-recorded clip, Swift wore a navy tank top and gold jewelry, which complemented her unmistakable glow. The Grammy winner’s bronzy glow could certainly be attributed to a spray tan, but the superstar has been catching some sun while vacationing in the Bahamas with her boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.

True to form, Swift's accessories also held a deeper meaning, including her "T" and "S" gold initial earrings, first spotted on the star during football season, and her Tilly Sveaas' Gold T-Bar Curb Link Necklace, a favorite in her rotation.

"Hey! I wanted to say thank you so much to anyone who voted for this award," Swift said in the clip that played after *NSYNC's Lance Bass and Backstreet Boys’s AJ McLean introduced her as the award winner. "iHeart, you've also just been so incredibly supportive over the course of my entire career, but especially this year has been pretty spectacular. I am so grateful for that."

A “spectacular year” indeed — in addition to her record-breaking Eras Tour, Swift won album of the year for her album Midnights (her fourth win in the category) at the 2024 Grammy Awards.

To conclude her iHeartRadio speech, the singer acknowledged fans for their continued support and teased “exciting things” coming in the future — including her new album, The Tortured Poets Department, coming on April 19.

"You know, to the fans, it is completely up to you to choose how you spend your time, what concerts you want to go to, what music you want to make the soundtrack of your life,” Swift shared. “And to anyone who has included me in those choices, I am so, so, so thankful for that.”
