Taylor Swift shows her racy side in raunchy black outfit... then changes into virginal white dress as RED tour kicks off
She has always been known as the squeaky clean princess of country.
But Taylor Swift unleashed her raunchy side as she donned a racy black outfit as she kicked off her RED tour in Nebraska on Wednesday.
The popstrel looked stunning in a skimpy black and gold number which featured a low cut top, skimpy hotpant-style shorts and leather boots that went up to her knees.
