But making her presence even more noteworthy was her choice of a naked Oscar de la Renta dress. The singer, who was nominated for five awards and took home three, made her grand return to the VMAs in a flapper-esque minidress that was artfully strung together by layers upon layers of jewel-encrusted chains over a nude bodice. She amplified the dress's sparkle with crystal-embellished Christian Louboutin heels, Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, and a silver metallic manicure and pedicure to match.

Getty "I had sort of made up my mind that if you were going to be this generous and give us this, I thought it might be a fun moment to tell you that my brand-new album comes out October 21st," she said, adding: And I will tell you more at midnight." Keeping her promise, Swift took to Instagram and shared the artwork for her new album, titled Midnights.
