Taylor Swift performs at the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show at Lexington Avenue Armory on November 13, 2013 in New York City.

Our favorite event of the year took place last night: the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, the annual body glitter bonanza/fashion show that shows no fashion but insists on being called as such. For years, we have looked forward to sifting through the most ridiculous looks from the event and trying (desperately) to parse them. But really, who doesn’t love body glitter?

Anyway, we’ll get around to the actual 2013 collection itself in a moment but first let’s all take a moment to behold Taylor Swift‘s performance look:

Yeah, really almost as ridiculous as one of the regular looks. Or perhaps more because she’s dressed as a Sexy Union Jack Costume, filtered through the pretty princess dream castle that is the Taylor Swift Machine.

Sidenote: Swift went on during the Britain-themed portion of the runway show.

Anyway! Can we get a better look at that hat? Yes, we can:

The sleeve situation is particularly striking.

As for the shoes:

But… by far, the best worst our favorite detail of the look came in the form of that Chippendale’s tie and sparkly choker:
