OFFSTAGE: A 21-Dress Salute to Taylor Swift

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Now that Taylor Swift is 21, InStyle took it upon themselves to pick what they consider her 21 best dresses. (Swift herself was dancing around her room alone to Pink’s greatest hits CD to ring in her birthday, according to her late-night tweet.) I don’t necessarily agree with this list, because I was a big fan of the boho Forever 21 dresses she wore with cowboy boots when she was out on tour with George Strait back in early 2007. But, that said, this is a nice list from 2008-2010. There are dresses that sparkle and shine. Dresses in bold colors like the canary yellow vintage one, the red Valentino, the magenta Balenciaga one and the bright green satin bustier from Miu Miu. Dresses that show off her supermodel poise, like the one-shoulder Laila Azhar and the metallic Zac Posen halter dress. Best, though, is the creamy georgette off-the-shoulder one from Ralph Lauren. You can’t ever go wrong with Ralph. Which one’s your favorite look?
