See her style evolution from country darling to superstar.

MUSIC

Taylor blew into the music scene as the girl next door in 2006. A generation of Swifties was born, fantasizing about a relationship like in “Our Song.”

The “Love Story” singer went from flowing, colorful outfits to shorter, sparkling dresses with the debut of her sophomore album.

Resting on the laurels of four Grammy awards come 2010, Taylor took on a more mature style, reminding fans that she was growing up.

At the 2012 Billboard Awards, she wore a red dress (a precursor to her album that was released later that year, perhaps?) and straight hair instead of her signature curls.

Growing Up

With the release of her fourth studio album, Taylor began her venture into pop music. With plenty of sparkles, of course.

The “Blank Space” singer moved from Nashville to New York City around the time 1989 dropped. She stayed true to herself with bedazzled costumes.

Taylor debuted a blunt bob haircut at the 2016 Grammys. As they say, change your hair, change your life.

Her divisive album Reputation brought about an angsty, bad-girl style in line with the album itself. Swifties stood by her in this era filled with snake imagery.

But the old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now. Why? Oh, ’cause she’s dead.

In a 180-degree pivot from her Reputation vibes, Taylor released Lover and embodied a pastel aesthetic filled with unicorns and rainbows.

During 2020, Taylor graced us with not one, but two albums: folklore and evermore. She’s now re-recording her first six albums to gain ownership of the masters.

Taylor’s Version

When I hear my older music and my older young teenage voice, it makes me feel like I'm a different singer now.
