We're used to seeing Taylor Swift on the red carpet at music awards shows, but this year she's a Golden Globes nominee as well. That's great news for her, and good news for us, too, because it means we got to see her looking absolutely stunning when she hit the red carpet in this romantic Carolina Herrera gown.

Taylor styled this black and red dress with a trendy faux bob, bright red lips, and some cute, flower shaped rings. It all added up to a look that's elegant and classic, but with a modern twist.

So, we know Taylor looked fantastic, but how did she feel heading into the show?

"I'm really excited," the country megastar gushed to Ryan Seacrest. "It's awesome."

Taylor is nominated for co-writing the song "Sweeter Than Fiction" from the film One Chance. The songstress is known for creating hits out of her personal struggles, but for this song she had to look to the film's story for inspiration, and apparently she liked the change.

"It feels like taking a bit of a break from looking into my own life and my own experience," she explained. She added that One Chance is the story of a male opera singer struggling to make his dreams come true, and the wife who sticks by him no matter what, a tale she found very touching and inspiring.
