OFFSTAGE: Taylor Swift Names Faith Hill Her Style Icon

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

Who wouldn’t want to look like Faith Hill, right? Taylor Swift says Hill is her country style icon because, as she says, “She always looks like a knockout no matter what she wears.” And if she had to pick one celeb whose closet she’d like to raid, it would be Zoe Saldana’s. “That girl knows how to dress,” Swift said in the new issue of People Country on newsstands now. But beyond the style topic, Swift also admits coveting Zooey Deschanel’s bangs because they “look like they’re made of magic.” Here are a few more beauty thoughts Swift came up with:

It would be liberating to rock a pantsuit one day (and she did, in fact, rock a sexy white one on the red carpet at the VMAs.)

She couldn’t live without red lipstick.

Her style is feminine, classic and retro.

But her nail polish is usually blue — turquoise, dark blue or sky blue.

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
