Taylor Swift Style: From Country Princess to Red Carpet Mainstay

Taylor Swift Style

With her much-anticipated album 1989 dropping in less than a month, there’s no question Taylor Swift has captured the buzz, yet again. At only 24 years old, the country-turned-pop star’s resume is already populated with plenty of music accolades as well as a perfume line, an education centre and most recently the key advisor spot on The Voice. Her relatable, super-catchy song lyrics plus her loveable personality (this Tumblr is proof) may make us believe she’s just like us, but we know for a fact she is anything but your regular girl when it comes to her wardrobe.

Back in the day, déjà vu hit us every time the country singer stepped out on the red carpet, showing us every form of sparkly dress known to man. But gone are the days of wearing custom-made prom queen dresses and cowboy boots. These days, T-Swift is all about topping best-dressed lists with her sexy yet elegant red carpet looks.

The singer-songwriter has definitely come a long way since her red carpet debut (cue this vampy CMAs outfit circa 2006) with Zuhair Murad, J. Mendel, Reem Acra being her go-to designers nowadays. While Swift does no wrong when it comes to her tried-and-trued glittery dresses or form fitting outfits, Old Hollywood glamour suits her to a T. Such was the case at the 2014 Met Gala, when she arrived pretty in pink in Oscar de la Renta. Her red and pink Monique Lhuillier gown at The Giver premiere was pretty unforgettable too.

But the singer is no stranger to throwing a fastball every so often. Crop top ensembles and thigh-high slits may have been head-turners once upon a time, but the starlet really got the Internet talking when she walked the 2014 VMAs red carpet in nothing but a Mary Katrantzou body suit and Elie Saab booties. Talk about shaking things off up.

From country princess to red carpet mainstay, we’re taking you through our November cover girl’s style evolution, one look at a time. Never want to miss a Taylor Swift outfit? Fret not, Swifties. We’ll be updating this gallery with every new red carpet appearance. We promise.
