Amelia and I were just talking about how much better we think Taylor Swift looks with bangs than without. Ever since she took the bangs plunge earlier this year, Swift just looks way more elegant and chic. The bangs really frame her face and make her look more mature.
I’ll probably always have bangs, because I’m too impatient to grow my hair out, and sideswept bangs seem to really frame my face best. And Amelia has had bangs for basically her entire life, ever since her mom gave her an epic bowl cut in 1984. But bangs don’t necessarily work on everyone.
We’ve got several other celebs who got banged up in the past year — sometimes for better and sometimes for worse. Let us know what you think in the comments!
Can we give it up for Taylor Swift, who has, in the last few months, really evolved her look? Taylor is showing that her style has become more grownup, but she hasn’t done a complete 180 on the fashion front, like so many teen stars. Her taste is still girly and slightly retro, but many of her outfits lately have introduced a little bit of edge, without beating us over the head with it. I love the simplicity of this outfit; the mustard-colored denim shorts and loosely tied shirt are casually cool, but the bright red lips and glam shades dress it up just a touch. Also, I hope she never, ever grows out those bangs — they suit her! Find out how to get the look for less, after the jump! Keep reading »
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]
