Taylor Swift wears a short black dress in Los Angeles as she waits to attend the Golden Globes

Taylor Swift sparkled as she stepped out onto the streets of Los Angeles ahead of her expected appearance at the Golden Globes on Sunday evening.

The 34-year-old will be heading to the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday night along with a gluttony of Hollywood stars and celebrities for the Golden Globes 2024 awards.

With no Travis Kelce to keep her occupied, Swift has been trying to keep herself busy when visiting friends in the area.

And on Saturday night, she certainly dressed to impress, wearing a stunning all-black ensemble that perfectly complimented her laced knee-high boots.

Black appears to be a colour Swift is favoring more recently, having also chosen a dark outfit for her birthday celebrations in New York City in December.

The main difference with her outfit on that occasion was the subtle midnight theme threaded into the design, while this striking outfit was more of a classic look.

She stepped out with her new bestie Brittany Mahomes, the wife of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Why is Taylor Swift attending the Golden Globes?
While the Golden Globes typically celebrates the best from film and TV, Swift’s huge popularity means she has made it into the nominations for this year’s ceremony.

The film ‘Taylor Swift: Eras Tour’, which documented her record-breaking worldwide tour, is one of eight films to have been nominated for the Cinematic and Box Office Achievement award, a brand new award to pick between the highest-grossing movies in 2023.

The other contenders for the prize are: Barbie; Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3; John Wick: Chapter 4; Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part 1; Oppenheimer; Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse; and The Super Mario Bros Movie.

Swift has never won a Golden Globe before, but it wouldn’t be the first time the 34-year-old has sprung a shock if she does collect the prize.
