Taylor Swift - November's Cover Star

Cover Girl Taylor Swift
Marie Claire & Glamour Magazine
November 2012

Taylor Swift's star continues to rise with two cover features for the month of November. The British version of Marie Claire places the 22-year-old songstress on their cover, while back on her home ground, Taylor sparkles on the cover of Glamour US.

Marie Claire UK

The 'Love Story' singer is stunning on the cover of Marie Claire UK, featured in a goth romantic sheer embroidered gown by Valentino.

Taylor lounges in a long-sleeved paisley print turtle-neck dress by Russian label Vilshenko.

Taylor vies for a festival inspired look in a bronze animal print dress by Gucci, which is styled with a Eugenia Kim fedora and brown suede Gianvito Rossi tassel boots.

Her now famous blunt bangs perfectly frame this black and white image. Her red chevron fringed jacket is by Ted Ryan. I would've never guessed that the jacket was this eye-catching. What a difference colour photography makes, don't you think?

Continuing the musical bohemian theme of the photo shoot, Taylor wears an elegant silk print maxi dress by Theyskens' Theory, along with brown suede boots.

Glamour US

Taylor Swift dazzles on the cover of Glamour USA, in a sparkly gold sequin tank top from Burberry London and an attention grabbing red tulle skirt and leather belt by Christian Dior.

Taylor's pretty ivory lace and floral print peplum dress is by Jill Stuart, with pearl and diamond necklace by Fred Leighton. Soft curls & rosy makeup add to the charm of this look.

Sometimes it takes an editorial to completely transform the attitude of a dress. This shimmery shell pink mini was presented at Erin by Erin Fetherston's Fall 2012 show. Taylor brings it to life with all tan accessories, including a vintage belt, Mark Cross satchel and Casadei crocodile pumps.

Taylor wears an unseen sequin yellow top & pink floral print skirt from Marc Jacobs Resort 2013 range. Her vibrant look is styled with L'wren Scott red leather gloves, Kate Spade heels & belt and a blue Marc Cross satchel amongst some retro luggage bags.

Which of Taylor Swift's November 2012 editorial's do you prefer? 
The darker romance of Marie Claire's Bohemian theme or Glamour's Sprightly Bright affair?

I love Taylor Swift but almost hate to admit the fact! She looks amazing in these photos, and I particularly love the fringe chevron with the blunt bangs photo - Great post! I especially liked seeing the difference an editorial can make! Styling can really make a big difference!

Cinnamon and White Chocolate said...

She looks stunning in both editorials, but, as I personally like bohemian style very much, that one is my fav! She looks a bit like a Rolling Stones grouppie from the 70ies! Perfect editorial, can't remember last time I saw something eye-catshing like this! Ilina

I don't really care for Taylor Swift at all, but she does look stunning in both of these editorials! I like both, but I'd have to pick the Marie Claire UK shoot!

Adeola Naomi said...

She is stunning in both but I prefer the Marie Claire looks and cover!

Francesca. said...

Absolutely adore the Marie Claire editorial, I have to admit (maybe I'm biased), and I'll definitely be picking it up, although I don't normally read it ha xx

Anonymous said...

It's interesting that both took a vintage spin on Taylor's look...really suits her...but two very different vintage eras! I love the black dress she wore for the cover, so amazing.

Thanks for sharing these! I really love the fashions they styled Taylor in for Marie Claire especially that gorgeous Valentino dress on the cover.

Thanks for your sweet comment on my Disney post! They do still make Mickey waffles. We didn't get a chance to eat at our hotel though so we didn't get to have them.

I think I love them both - the first is so dramatic and the second captures her in a way I haven't seen her before - all light, fun and flirty!
