Taylor Swift
In 2006, Taylor Swift burst onto the music scene with her debut album, establishing herself as a country star with hits like "Teardrops on My Guitar" and "Tim McGraw."
Her initial era was marked by distinctive country-chic fashion and a sweet girl-next-door image, underscored by her tight blond curls, floral sundresses, and cowboy boots.
The 2008 album "Fearless" established Swift as a country-pop icon with hits like "You Belong With Me" and "Love Story," earning her a Grammy Award at just 20 years old.
The "Fearless" era was defined by Swift's sparkly dresses, signature winged eyeliner, hand hearts, and number 13, which the singer started donning on her hand during performances.
Speak Now
Swift's entirely self-written 2010 album focused on the transition from adolescence to adulthood and from country to pop, with a deeply personal and confessional tone.
The "Speak Now" era is remembered for Swift's sparkly dresses and looser curls, her "Wonderstruck" perfume line, her ethereal "fairy tale" aesthetic, and the color purple.
"Red" marked a turning point in Swift's life and career. She experimented with new genres such as mainstream pop, rock, and even EDM and dubstep in the 2012 album.
The "Red" era saw Swift ditch "princess fairy tale" aesthetics and embrace a new, edgier style characterized by straight hair, blunt bangs, red lipstick, and black fedoras.
With her first full-scale pop album, Swift dominated the global music scene with hits like "Shake It Off" and "Blank Space" and became a ubiquitous presence in pop culture.
The "1989" era saw her move to New York City, cut her hair into a short bob, and step away from her country roots to embody the persona of a bombshell mega-pop star.
