If Taylor Swift was still wearing
the same sundress and cowboy boots she wore when she was 16 — and singing her debut single “Tim
McGraw” — she’d probably look all right. But she’s 23 now. And her style has seriously evolved in those seven years.
So those sexy dresses she’s been wearing lately? Get used to them. In
an interview that appeared in the Washington Post, she said, “As far as wardrobe, we have been operating from a
different place.” She’s been spotted recently in a low-cut white Kaufman Franco dress in Madrid, another low-cut white gown
at the People’s Choice Awards and in smoky brown eyeliner and a champagne Elie Saab mini dress at the NRJ Music Awards in
France. She said that when she started dressing a little more grown up, like when she wore shorts to the 2012 MTV Video Music
Awards, the response was a bit of shock. “It was like, ‘Gasp, Taylor wears shorts.’ And I thought it was hilarious. I’m not
going to be like taking my clothes off or that sort of thing,” she said.
