The wait is finally over: Taylor Swift’s Reputation World Tour has finally arrived. Swift launched her tour last night, May 8th, in Glendale, Arizona, in a stadium packed with thousands of her fans. And the first night didn’t disappoint. Swift’s Glendale performance was filled with memorable moments — from her long-awaited acknowledgment of her feud with the Kardashian-Wests to a giant snake on stage. Tiffany Haddish even made an appearance, in a surprise cameo during “Look What You Made Me Do.” But just as impressive as the performances themselves were Swift’s many outfits.
As is the case in any stadium tour, Swift’s “Reputation” is big and flashy. According to AZ Central, the nearly 60,000 fans packed into the University of Phoenix stadium were treated to bungee-jumping dancers, a literal tilted stage (a dig at Kanye West), and hovering platforms that helped Swift move from set-piece to set-piece.
Coupled with the elaborate sets and pyrotechnics were several costume changes. We’ve counted at least at least eight outfits, which Swift shed throughout the night like snakeskin, each one more dazzling than the next. Sleek, dark looks were prevalent during the show, although Swift ended the night with a surprising splash of color.
Here are all the Reputation World Tour costume changes (so far).
Swift began the night in a sequined black unitard with what looks like a detachable hood.
Then, a black and gold jacket made Swift look like a military captain.
She traded the jacket for a simpler gold and black bodysuit and matching boots.
A snakeskin bodysuit layered under a sheer black robe was in line with the show’s snake imagery.
Swift later removed the black robe.
She gave off rocker vibes in a black Reputation jacket.
It appears she wore a long, gold-embroidered jacket while sitting at the piano.
And during “Shake it Off,” she donned a shimmery rainbow dress.
We’re glad to see Swift making her return to the stage, and we can’t wait to see more from her Reputation World Tour.
