The Academy of Country Music Awards: A time when luminaries from the world of country music — and KISS — slap on their finest glittery suits and gowns and celebrate the year’s best in twangy records. With the rise of country-pop singers like Taylor Swift, the country world’s been infiltrated by a slightly more mainstream influence — and that’s affected the fashion, too. But there’s still a whole heck of a lot of glitter, sparkles and prom finery to go around. Take a peek at our favorite and not-so-favorite looks from the night, and let us know if you agree.
Taylor, Taylor, Taylor. Where do I begin? Let’s just say that I don’t particularly care for her music, but her clothes… well, that’s an entirely different story. I’m not alone: here at The Frisky, we’ve publicly drooled over her style more than almost any other celeb. Seriously! I must not be as terrible a snob as I thought, considering I’m all up in Taylor’s gravitational pull, especially this outfit she was spotted in at LAX yesterday. I’m obsessed — obsessed! — with this hip ladylike look, and right now I’m out to steal it. Are you? I’ll show you how, after the jump. [photos via Fanpop] Keep reading »
Angelina Jolie is out, Taylor Swift is in. Marie Claire Australia made one of those charming facial mashups, where they take all of the most coveted features of the moment and mold them into one celebrity Frankenstein. This heavenly creature features Taylor Swift’s hair, Natalie Portman’s nose, Scarlett Johansson’s lips, Halle Berry’s jaw, January Jones’ cheeks and Anne Hathaway’s eyes. All that work, and I must say, she comes out looking eerily similar to Faith Hill. Am I right? I wonder if Faith’s pissed that she didn’t get a mention. [Beek Week Ever]
Happy Friday! It’s time for this week’s edition of Don’t Show-cha Your Chocha, starring a nearly naked Lady Gaga (before she was Gaga), an epic pelvic thrust from Taylor Swift, and a few unlucky models trying desperately not to flash the cameras. Click through to check it out, and remember — if you spot a Don’t Show-cha Your Chocha moment, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Not only can Taylor Swift sing, but she can also own the hell out of a magazine cover, as evidenced in both the February issue of Vogue and her latest turn on the front of Harper’s Bazaar Australia. I’m always pleasantly surprised by just how beautifully she photographs for high fashion; it really is kind of a paradox considering the brand of sweet country music she creates. She looks grown-up and believable in the clothes that she’s wearing, not at all like she’s playing dress up. It makes me want to like her more than I do… which is not that much, especially now that she’s rumored to be courting Tim Tebow, who makes me feel like crying. [Celebitchy]
Generally, Taylor Swift’s style isn’t really my thing. She’s very girly and while I like girly touches, I like a little bit of edge. So I surprised myself when I saw these photos of Taylor and thought, Dang, I totally want to steal that look. Actually, this is a look I think would look adorable on Jessica, who does generally favor a more girly sense of style. I like the retro touches, while the red lips and cat-eye sunglasses have a tiny dose of bad girl edge. Check out how to get the look after the jump! Keep reading »
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.
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 »
