With the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards right around the corner, it's safe to say we have Taylor Swift on the brain. The 25-year-old "Style" singer has become a red-carpet mainstay known for her modern twist on old Hollywood glamour. But it hasn't always been that way — before she was serving up that "red lip classic thing that we like," Swift was just a regular(ish), fresh-faced high school kid with a head full of curls.
In honor of Swift's impressive beauty transformation, MIMI teamed up with celebrity makeup artist Stephanie Flor to re-create six of Tay's most iconic looks through the years. We're starting all the way back in 2006 during her curly-haired "Tim McGraw" days — a good three years before the infamous Kanye West incident! — and ending with the layered lob she debuted in 2014.
