Taylor Swift at the BRIT Awards 2015 wearing Roberto Cavalli

Taylor Swift may have only arrived in London this week but she's already been out in force at a host of parties and get-together's with her BFF Karlie Kloss. However, the real reason she's here is for the BRITs where she's set to perform live on stage to a very starry crowd — walk in the park for such a major A-lister, we're sure.

Of course, we all know that Tay loves nothing more than to get dressed up to the nines for a glittering awards ceremony and has more killer looks under her belt than we could ever count. However, her dress choice for the London bash has to be one of her most statement yet...

Taking to the red carpet as she made her way into the O2 Arena, the 25-year-old songstress looked nothing short of incredible with her hair swooped up into a retro updo. Donning her trademark crimson pout, she looked every inch the babe she is. 

As for her frock we have to admit that from the front, it looked like a standard LBD. Lovely, yes, but very safe. However, when she turned around we realised it couldn't be farther from a bog-standard black maxi. 

Emblazoned with a fierce red dragon that starts on Taylor's shoulder and slithers all the way down to the train, this Roberto Cavalli dress is way more show-stopping than we first gave it credit for. 

Embroidered onto the sheer power mesh insert and the heavy silk crepe skirt, we can only imagine the man-hours that it took to create this firecracker. 

Sure, it's a bit of an off-beat choice for Swifty but with her polished 'do and faultless make-up, we reckon she totally pulls it off. Proof that it definitely pays to take a sartorial risk from time to time...
