1 of 16


"I adore being girlie," cover girl Taylor Swift told InStyle. And with a red-carpet repertoire that includes sparkling dresses, metallic shadows and her signature spiral curls, there's no reason to doubt her. However, this 24-year-old has grit enough to justify the title of her hit second album, "Fearless." Famously, her lyrics are inspired by real-life heartache. "Vulnerability and honesty are themes in my music," she told us. It's no wonder, then, that when Kanye West interrupted her VMA acceptance speech, she reacted with poise and humor in both backstage interviews and during her hosting gig on "SNL." And, although she loves her Chanel Inimitable mascara and NARS Dragon Girl lip color, she has said: "It's important to be comfortable with who you are and go natural once in a while." Clearly, Swift is as wise a woman as she is girlie a girl.

2005: The Hendersonville High freshman had the tiara, but didn't feel like a princess until she left to begin recording her first album. "I really don't miss much about high school," she said during her homeschool days, "because the moment I'm in right now is like waking up in a dream." (Photo: Seth Poppel/Yearbook Library)
