Taylor Swift had a birthday party with her "Sagittarius queen" bestie Alana Haim to celebrate their 32nd and 30th birthdays, respectively. Posting pictures from the event, Taylor promised fans they tested everyone for COVID beforehand and also made a cute reference to her song "22": "*don't say it, don't say it OKAY I'm saying it:* I'M FEELIN 32." Of course, if you're a Swiftie, you might also be concerned with the gold sequin dress she was wearing, which has caused quite the stir on Twitter.

Teamed with her signature red lip, what on earth could the look be signifying? The world knows that anything Taylor shares with fans usually packs a hidden meaning, so we've all taken note of this style move. "Taylor swift didn't wear this gold dress on her b'day for y'all to say she is ignoring evermore," one user wrote, referring to the 2020 album that includes the song "Gold Rush," although it's certainly not the only mention of "gold" throughout her track history. She also tended to wear a lot of metallics during the year Red was originally released, so this could just be a nod to her latest Taylor's Version recording.

It's safe to say that the color is symbolic to Swift, whatever the case, and the one-shoulder minidress style with a frilly hem finish is distinctive to us โ€” especially when 'tis the damn season to shine, as far as wardrobe goes. Ahead, we share the hype surrounding the sensation that is Taylor's birthday dress, along with what appears to be the exact Julia Clancey "Lady Boogie" number she selected to ring in 32. Heads up: the price tag is set at $800, so we included a few more inspired styles for alternative shopping, too.
