Taylor Swift’s Best Fashion Moments of All Time, everyone who looks at it is fascinated

From her street style ensembles to her awards show standouts, here’s a look back at Taylor Swift’s best fashion moments over the years

Taylor Swift


She started as a teen country singer with hits like “Tim McGraw” and “Teardrops On My Guitar,” but Taylor Swift has grown into one of music’s most prominent powerhouses. From seamlessly crossing over to the pop charts to living in New York City, fans have seen the star through many eras — and there are surely many more to come.

Over the years, Swift’s style has inevitably evolved along the way. While the singer gravitated towards romantic ball gowns and feminine silhouettes for her early red carpet moments, she’s stepped out of the box more recently with tailored suits and menswear-inspired looks. And just like with her music, Swift is bound to continue to surprise us with her style, whether she’s attending an awards show or strolling around Tribeca.

Keep reading for a look back at some of Taylor Swift’s best fashion moments.

Taylor Swift at the CMAs in 2006

Shortly after releasing her very first single, “Tim McGraw,” Swift made her CMAs debut in a black, floor-length Elvira gown with black opera gloves. Her signature curls were on full display as well as a dramatic, smoky makeup look.

Swift seemingly channeled Belle’s iconic yellow dress from Beauty and the Beast with her 2007 CMAs look. The brilliant gold gown featured a beaded bodice and satin skirt, and the star’s blonde curls were pulled back and swept over one shoulder. Rather than go for matching jewelry, Swift accessorized with long silver earrings.

For her very first Grammys, Swift embodied her newfound role as music’s girl next door in this strapless lavender dress with beaded detailing on the skirt. She didn’t take home any awards that night (she was nominated for Best New Artist, which Adele won), but the appearance was certainly a memorable start to her journey as a style icon.

She was still firmly in her country music era, but Swift looked like a pop princess in this sequin gown by Kaufman Franco at the 2008 CMAs. The sheer black straps and plunging neckline gave the look a sophisticated feel.

Perhaps it was just a coincidence, but Swift’s sparkly gold gown at the 2009 CMAs perfectly matched the armful of trophies she went home with that night. The star looked like a real-life princess in the Reem Acra dress that featured a sequined bodice flowing into a chiffon skirt.

Swift’s pale pink Oscar de la Renta gown was so beautiful that even her cats couldn’t resist it. “I’ve never seen more fashionable people lose their composure quicker than when a cat walks up to a satin, custom Oscar de la Renta gown and then decides to make a home inside of it,” the singer told PEOPLE of her pet’s Met Gala antics in 2014.

“She just passed, dug her claws in and started to roll … like when you see a crocodile attack an antelope on National Geographic,” she continued. “That’s what she tried to do to the dress.”

Luckily, Swift and her gown made it to the Gala unscathed — and she looked absolutely stunning.

On Twitter, the fashion house gave a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the garment, which involved the botanical appliqués being sewed on individually. Along with the dress, which retailed for $8,990, Swift also wore a pair of Louboutin heels and Cathy Waterman jewelry to walk the red carpet and donned a stylish matching floral face mask when necessary.

Continuing on her recent menswear kick, Swift donned a navy pinstripe pantsuit for a screening of her short film at the 2022 Tribeca Film Festival. Rather than a jacket, the singer opted for a vest which she paired with pleated pants and a pair of red heels.
