Taylor Swift Kicks Off ‘Reputation’ Tour With Sequins, Snakeskin & Custom Louboutin Boots

Taylor Swift is back on the road. The singer’s “Reputation Stadium Tour” officially kicked off on Tuesday, and she brought on the theatrics.

Part of the excitement had to do with Swift’s dramatic stage sets, which focused on snakes, snakes and more snakes. Cobras were seen scattered throughout the show — Swift floats through the sky in a gigantic snake exoskeleton stage, and the theme was also displayed through the tour costumes.

Swift’s dancers, for example, were seen dressed in reptile skin-inspired ensembles.

And for her stage style, with help from stylist Joseph Cassell Falconer, Swift went custom. She paired multiple custom-made Christian Louboutin thigh-high boots with Jessica Jones’ one-of-a-kind one-piece outfits, which were filled with sequins.

One Louboutin boot was a chunky heel laceup, detailed with shiny scales. The other thigh-high was detailed in gold.

For the opening show at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., where she broke the attendance record, Swift didn’t disappoint. FN sister publication Rolling Stone called it her “finest tour yet,” while fans couldn’t keep their chill.

One tweeted, “The reputation tour is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before … That was the best night of my life.”

Next up, Swift’s “Reputation” tour, including special guests Camila Cabello and Charli XCX, heads to California, where she will perform at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara and at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.
