Style Retrospective: Taylor Swift

Taylor Does Vogue

Go ahead, put me down on the roster of people who were strongly opposed to Taylor Swift’s visage plastered across the February cover of Vogue. I’ve always thought of her as young, immature, and reeking of eau de teenybopper: cowboy boots, a guitar, and a prom dress? No, thanks. Lo and behold, the chops she showed in the magazine caught me off guard, and I’ve begun to see the country-pop songstress in a different light. She looks all kinds of grown-up on the cover, and photos of her draped in Rodarte on plush couches in the editorial show her to be a formidable fashion girl and clothes-hanger as well. Taylor has grown exponentially since she first appeared on the scene as a curly-haired, button-nosed country bumpkin. Maybe I can find a bit of room in my heart for her, after all. Here’s a look back at her style metamorphosis.

Hot Links: What’s A “Donorsexual”? Plus, Taylor Swift Can’t Deal With Your Privacy Obsession!

  • Meet Trent Arsenault. He’s a 36-year-old virgin, yet he has fathered 14 kids through sperm donation.. He likes to call himself a “donorsexual”; I like to call him a chronic masturbator. [Huffington Post
  • “I can’t deal with someone who’s obsessed with privacy. People kind of care if there are two famous people dating. But no one cares that much. If you care about privacy to the point where we need to dig a tunnel under this restaurant so that we can leave? I can’t do that. … If you need to put me down a lot in order to level the playing field or something? If you are threatened by some part of what I do and want to cut me down to size in order to make it even? That won’t work either.” — Taylor Swift on dating guys who can’t deal with her level of fame in the new issue of Vogue.

I love me some Taylor Swift, but honestly, I never thought she was the Vogue type. Tay-Tay is more suburban mall than bombshell and all those princess dresses are not exactly fashion-forward. But lo and behold, here she is on the February 2012 issue of Vogue with straightened hair and a big-ass wide-brimmed hat. Taylor looks more grown-up than usual here … which I suppose is the point of posing for Vogue, no? [Styleite]

Are you ready for a sadz? Taylor Swift released a song she’s contributed to “The Hunger Games” soundtrack. “Safe and Sound” is a lovely, melancholy one. I love Taylor on her own, but the backup vocals from The Civil Wars elevate this song from good to great. What say you? [The Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »

  • Uh oh. A group called the National Advertising Division has accused CoverGirl of Photoshopping Taylor Swift’s NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara ad to the high heavens, enhancing Swift’s lashes postproduction in a way that portrays the product inaccurately. Proctor & Gamble will reportedly discontinue using that particular campaign. It’s never good news when an ad campaign for makeup gets called out for excessive fakery! [Styleite]

The 15 Best Celeb Sparkly Dress Moments

I think of Anne Hathaway as an arbiter of class. I speak for myself, but I’ve never heard or read anything that depicted Anne to be any less than a contemporary Audrey … except for maybe the financial crimes of her ex-BF, but we can’t hold that against her. Earlier this week, Anne attended the Princess Grace Awards Gala here in NYC alongside Julie Andrews and Princess Charlene of Monaco (wow, she hangs out with such riffraff!). When I saw the pictures from the event online, I was ridiculously impressed by her ability to carry this embellished dress. I am a harsh critic of sparkle and shine on clothing, but Anne’s Valentino could make a convert out of me. This got me thinking: what other celebrities have rocked sparkly dresses with total class? There’s not an ounce of garishness on any of these ladies.

Celeb Jihad is the website that cried wolf when it comes to leaked celebrity nudie pics. The latest “private pic” on their site is that of a topless Taylor Swift laying on a bed in nothing but her undies.The singer vehemently denies that the photo is hers.  The face looks like Taylor, but um, Celeb Jihad, do you think we’re stupid? We know what you’re up to. It’s called Photoshopping. The site is notorious for leaking fake nude pics of other starlets like Scarlett Johansson. Their worst work is a totally tasteless  photo of Emma Watson spreading her legs (extreeeeemely NSFW, folks). We’re not really feeling their credibility anymore, if you know what we mean. We humbly request that they stop now and we’re sure the celebs whom they’ve violated would concur. If they don’t take don’t take down Taylor’s pics, her lawyers will make them. They’ve already sent a cease and desist letter for their “false pornographic images” and are prepared to sue for trademark infringement. [Huffington Post]

Morning Quickies: Jake Gyllenhaal’s Exes Are Laughing At Him

  • Jake Gyllenhaal must have heard a ringing in his ears recently: Reese Witherspoon and Taylor Swift had lunch together last week and dished about their mutual ex. “They talked about how vain and self-aborbed Jake can be,” a source told Us Weekly. “They laughed about it.” Poor Jake. [US Weekly]
  • Remember that hair salon I wrote about yesterday that depicted domestic violence in one of its advertisements? Someone vandalized it. Fluid in Edmonton, Alberta, was tagged with the message, “This is art that is wrongly named violence. That was violence that was wrongly named art.” [The Gloss]
  • Some women just aren’t that into oral sex. [xoJane]

Taylor Swift And Justin Bieber Do A Duet Of “Baby”


In case you needed proof that Bieber Fever is nowhere near over, check out the audience reaction when, during a Taylor Swift concert at the Los Angeles Staples Center on Tuesday night, Taylor brought Justin Bieber on stage for a duet of “Baby.” “Who wants to see my friend Justin?” Taylor asks, as the mostly female audience loses their minds. Something tells me the moment wasn’t impromptu, judging by the fact that Justin’s cadre of dancers came onstage with him for what appeared to be a highly choreographed moment. But still, I have to imagine that this moment is heaven for many tweens in the USA. [Billboard] Keep reading »

Taylor Swift Lives Life Likes She’s 80

“Live your life like you’re 80 looking back on your teenage years. You know if your dad calls you at eight in the morning and asks if you want to go to breakfast? As a teenager you’re like no, I want to sleep. As an 80-year-old looking back, you have that breakfast with your dad. It’s just little things like that that helped me when I was a teenager in terms of making the choices you won’t regret later.”

Taylor Swift tells PopSugar the best life advice she ever got. Wow, perhaps this explains how she is so darn composed at the age of 21. I mean, if I was as mature as she was when I hit legal drinking age, I would have taken over the world by now. [PopSugar] Keep reading »
