There are a handful of things we've come to expect from country-pop singer Taylor Swift: catchy love song anthems (that usually have everything to do with her high-profile heartbreaks), her bold red lip, her playful fit-and-flare dresses, and her classic meets retro off-duty style. So, when the blond beauty deviates from the norm — and we're talking serious deviation here — it's certainly worth a double take. Sure, she's got countless Grammys, AMAs, and CMAs under her belt, but thanks to an impressive lineup of fashion editorials, including ones found in the pages of Vogue, Elle, Harper's Bazaar, and Marie Claire, we're privy to a lesser-known side of Taylor that's sometimes edgier, sometimes a little more undone, and sometimes full-on sexy siren. That's the beauty of playing dress-up, and since it's Taylor's 23rd birthday today, we're taking a closer look at her most unexpected (dare we say surprising?) editorials yet.
