At the 2018 American Music Awards on Tuesday, Taylor Swift took home four awards for Artist of the Year, Tour of the Year, Best Pop/Rock Album, and Best Female Pop/Rock Artist.

Swift kept the metallic trend going during her explosive performance of “I Did Something Bad” – a song from her sixth studio album, “Reputation,” released in November 2017.

The singer commanded the stage in a long-sleeved leotard covered in red and black sequins, a custom design by Jessica Jones. She paired the bodysuit with custom, black over-the-knee boots by Christian Louboutin.

It’s not the first time Swift has graced the AMAs in a metallic ensemble. While she made her first appearance at the event in 2007, the singer attended the 2008 ceremony in a one-shoulder silver sequined dress. That year, she took home the award for Best Country Female Artist.
