It’s Taylor Swift like you’ve never seen her before! The country star goes big-city stylish on the cover of this Sunday’s T: The New York Times Style Magazine. And on its inside pages it’s clear that she’s come a long way from her days of dressing in jeans and sparkly shirts to drop off CD demos at major record labels when she was just 11. Taylor models some seriously high-fashion looks in the spread, which was shot by famed photographer Raymond Meier, including a silver metallic Burberry Prorsum jacket, Chanel dress, to a dazzling Prada Swarovski crystal top and chandelier skirt. But it wasn’t just fashion on the star’s mind. Swift talks openly about growing up as an outcast. “I would sit on the edge of class and watch people interact with each other,” said Swift. “I’d watch guys flirt with cool girls and I would watch best friends talk, and I would go home and write about it. If you listen to my albums, it’s like reading my diary.” Visit nytimes.com to watch video of the singer’s heart-to heart with T‘s editor at large, and read the full story in T Magazine’s Holiday issue, which comes out this weekend in the Sunday New York Times.

Glad that she took chances! Obviously these photos are out of her comfort zone but she pulled it off like a champion!!

Congrats Ms. Swift! Love the pics!

she looks beautiful of course, but why cant they let her be herself? those frankenstein boots…she’d never really wear that stuff

Jennifer, it’s called a FASHION shoot.

I personally think these photos are amazing. I’m not a fan of Taylor’s music, but she’s a beautiful girl and certainly has the physical attributes to pull off the looks–she looks like a real model.

I am a major Taylor Swift fan and I love these photos! When I first saw them I though hmm this is different. Taylor would make such a great fashion model.

Thanks Mary, I know what a fashion shoot is being that I work at a magazine, so calm down, it’s called having an opinion.
