Taylor Swift took a sparkly step forward for the MTV Video Music Awards’ afterparty in New York City — immediately following the announcement of the title, cover and October 21 release date for her highly-anticipated tenth album, “Midnights.”

While arriving at Fleur Room for the occasion, Swift wore a navy satin Moschino minidress with a sweetheart bodice. Giving the piece a burst of whimsical glamour was sparkling crystal trim on its neckline and upper straps, as well as glittering silver star embellishments. Swift completed her look with a furry white jacket and Ananya Fine Jewellery’s diamond Scatter Wrap earrings, finishing her outfit with a burst of ’70s glamour.

When it came to footwear, the “All Too Well (Taylor’s Version)” singer completed her outfit in a pair of soaring Alexander McQueen sandals. Her $1,090 Butterfly style featured glittering silver uppers with thick platform soles, cutout toe and buckled ankle straps, accented by metallic silver leather trim. Finishing the pair were narrow 5.25-inch block heels, giving the set a gravity-defying height boost.
