Inside Taylor Swift's 'Eras' tour wardrobe – from designer sketches to outfit details

The European leg of the Taylor Swift's 'Eras' tour kicked off in Paris last night and, as you might expect, the impressive three-hour set features a string of high-octane, custom-made looks.

The show, which previously travelled across America before heading off internationally, is split into different sections to represent each of Swift's albums, with bespoke outfits for every era.

"The tour represents a very important moment in Taylor's career, because she conceived and built it as a journey through the different moments, or as the title suggests, the musical eras defining her career," explained Alberta Ferretti, one of the designers behind one of Swift's many on-stage ensembles. "I'm honoured that she asked me to design dresses for this special occasion. I have always been fascinated by women who constantly question and challenge themselves and Taylor, with her work, has demonstrated to be a multifaceted artist, able to constantly transform and evolve."

Each look was carefully considered and designed to represent the feel of each album: a floaty lilac Alberta Ferretti gown and a ruffled orange Etro design for Folklore, for example, or a one-legged snake-motif Roberto Cavalli jumpsuit for Reputation. As the tour has progressed, Swift has debuted the occasional new piece at each destination, switching up the wardrobe slightly from venue to venue.

In the brief tour hiatus before the European leg, Swift released a new album – The Tortured Poets Department – which means that fans can expect a slightly expanded set list as the tour continues, with new costumes to match. Having initially kicked off in Arizona in March 2023, the tour will finally conclude in Vancouver in December 2024.

Here, we chart some highlights from her impressive tour wardrobe, from designer sketches to up-close details:



Versace

Taylor Swift kicked off the European leg of her tour in a sparkling double-breasted Versace blazer, embellished with iridescent fuchsia crystals and accented with gold Medusa buttons. She paired the custom jacket with ombré Christian Louboutin boots – a bespoke version of the Eleonora Botta style – covered with thousands of glittering strass crystals.

Underneath the blazer she wore a crystal-embroidered Versace bodysuit with bustier boning structure, covered in paillettes in tones of orange with iridescent elements.



Vivienne Westwood

For the new Tortured Poets Department section, Swift debuted this custom corseted Vivienne Westwood dress. The design, created from recycled white taffeta, featured lyrics from her latest single, Fortnight: "I love you, it's ruining my life."

She styled the dress with a matching white military jacket with tasselled epaulettes, and lace-up Christian Louboutin ankle boots.


Zuhair Murad

The singer also added a new Zuhair Murad couture bodysuit to her wardrobe rotation in Paris. The cut-out piece featured fringing and embroidery in varying shades of midnight blue.



Alberta Ferretti

The singer has worn numerous Alberta Ferretti designs throughout the tour so far, including this flowing yellow dress seen in Paris.



Nicole + Felicia

In Singapore, Taylor Swift performed onstage in a voluminous lilac Nicole + Felicia ballgown, featuring a tiered tulle skirt that captured the light, thanks to its crystal-embellished finish.




Jessica Jones

For some of her more acoustic songs, Swift chose a ruffled red dress by the designer Jessica Jones. She wore the gown with glittering Christian Louboutin boots; a staple accessory in her Eras tour wardrobe.



Roberto Cavalli

Swift treated fans to the ultimate party look – an orange shimmering two-piece by Roberto Cavalli. Its design gave the illusion of crystal water droplets, which moved effortlessly as she performed onstage. She wore the outfit with her go-to sequin Christian Louboutin ankle boots.



Alberta Ferretti

For the Florida leg of the tour, Taylor Swift wore a green chiffon gown designed by Alberta Ferretti.



Elie Saab

Swift performed on-stage in a beautiful Elie Saab couture gown that was covered in floral appliqué and shimmering beading.



Versace

The singer switched it up in a sequinned pinstripe blazer by Versace, featuring gold stripes and matching buttons.



Alberta Ferretti

The singer twirled across the Las Vegas stage in this delicate chiffon Alberta Ferretti gown. The lace detail and crystal embroideries caught the light beautifully as she moved.



Zuhair Murad

Swift has made embellished bodysuits central to her 'Eras' wardrobe. This purple beaded look by Zuhair Murad, complete with co-ordinating knee-high boots by Christian Louboutin (of course), took more than 350 hours to create from 20,000 glittering crystals and pearls – and she even wore a matching beaded garter.


Ashish

In Las Vegas, the singer took to the stage in a glittering red coat by Ashish, which was layered over a matching bodysuit and colour co-ordinated with her guitar.



Oscar de la Renta

On opening night, Swift closed the show in a beautiful deep midnight-blue leotard (fittingly, to perform tracks from her album Midnights) designed by Oscar de la Renta, paired with matching glittery boots.



Roberto Cavalli

Swift wore a gold-fringed Roberto Cavalli couture mini-dress, designed by creative director Fausto Puglisi, which she teamed with a pair of silver cowboy boots.




Roberto Cavalli

One of her most dramatic looks from the tour has been this Roberto Cavalli one-legged jumpsuit. The design features a black sheer sleeve, glittering material and a three-dimensional embroidered snake motif winding from the bottom of her leg to the top of her neck.



Roberto Cavalli

Swift also opted for a co-ordinating crop top and skirt as part of her ever-expanding tour wardrobe, in what was her third Roberto Cavalli look of the show.



Versace

Swift teamed an embellished iridescent bodysuit by Versace with silver knee-high boots by Christian Louboutin.

The singer layered a silver sparkling Versace blazer over her bodysuit to perform her hit "The Man".



Oscar de la Renta

Swift's second Oscar de la Renta look consisted of a sequinned 'aurora borealis' T-shirt dress with a co-ordinating lavender faux fur coat, which also featured delicate crystal droplets.
