Taylor Swift Grammy 2012 Performance: What Was With Those Clothes? (PHOTO)

Taylor Swift looked like her shiny, sparkly self while walking the 2012 Grammy red carpet. The Grammy winner (and this month's Vogue covergirl) was all high-fashion, sporting a Zuhair Murad gown, Prada shoes and jewels by Neil Lane.

But when she hit the stage, performing "Mean," she channeled another vibe entirely. Grasping a banjo and singing alongside a group of ragtag bandmates, Taylor looked shabby-chic... minus the chic. Her drapey dress was a washed-out floral print and her backup players looked like they had been pulled from the set of a Great Depression period film.

At least, those were our first reactions. But folks on Twitter had a few more clever comparisons. Check out our favorites below and offer your best quips in the comments section.
