Style File: Taylor Swift

"My personal style is girly. I love dresses, high-waisted skirts and flirty little skirts with cute flowery things on them. I love headbands and old antique necklaces. I'm really into retro fashion like things that were beautiful then and can still be beautiful now in a more modernized way. I very rarely wear jeans because awhile back I decided that jeans make me tired, so I just wear skirts and dresses. I couldn't live without comfy cardigan sweaters because I get cold really easily. I'm always wearing a dress, so whenever I go inside where there's air conditioning, I'm the first one to get freezing cold, so I need something to put on top like a little wrap."

Taylor loves:


"Mary Janes go with everything."


"Banana Republic has some really cool tailored jackets and blazers. I look for really preppy things."

"It's cool to go to Forever 21 and find something people compliment you on like it's designer."

"I got a necklace I really like from Urban Outfitters: it's really long with a charm on the end of it."

"I'm inspired by how people dressed in the 60's and that beautiful, feminine energy of Jackie O. I like how faeries look with little dresses. I like sparkles. And glitter."

Taylor's tips for dressing your height:
1. "Keep an eye on length. Dresses made for regular heights can look like shirts on tall girls. Find styles that hit just above the knee or halfway up your theigh. Avoid cuts that sit at the top of the thigh."

2. Don't be afraid of high heels! I went through a phase where I wouldn't wear high heels because I felt like a giant giraffe. Now I wear heels. It's all how you carry yourself."

3. "Walk like a model. Throw your shoulders back at all times."

Great Outfits: Iman

Great Outfits: Taraji P. Henson

Great Outfits: Rachel Griffiths

I can't hate Rachel Griffith's frumpy brownish pumps because she looks lovely in her sunbtle, yet gorgeous nude dress which gathers on the hip that perfectly compliments her skin tone. I am in love her her gold satin clutch.

Rachel Griffiths is stunning in this gorgeous champagne Lanvin Fall 2008 silk dress, Neil Lane jewels and Alexandra Knight silver envelope clutch. Gorgeous.

Rachel Griffiths is sexy here in her figure-glorifying LBD and cheetah lined satin coat.

Great Outfits: Sandra Bullock

Sandra is lovely in her raspberry Alberta Ferretti gown.

Sandra is gorgeous in her vanilla tiered Dior gown. I love how her hair falls to the opposite direction of her asymmetrical gown. Her gold and turquoise jewelry is stunning.

This Michael Kors dress has an artful origami-like pintucked detail which gathers over the skirt creating an elegant draping and volume. I also love the asymmetric hem and the contrasting patent belt. Her look was paired with black Azzedine Alaia ankle strap platform heels. This dress fits Sandra because it is for a strong, confident and sexy yet chic woman and Sandra fits each check.

Sandra Bullock looked amazing wearing a very distinctive gold brocade Vivienne Westwood bustier dress which she paired with nude Brian Atwood “Maniac” Pumps. I’m loving that mahogany color of her poker straight hair.

Sandra Bullock is drop dead gorgeous in this stunning Bottega Veneta Spring 2010 strapless purple gown. Her hair was beautifully styled and her make-up was flawless. Lorraine Schwartz jewels were paired with this look. I am in awe.

I love the black fringe corseted Alberta Ferretti dress Sandra Bullock wears, but I think it fails to flatter her. Her black satin Casadei platform heels are to-die-for.

Sandra Bullock is chic in her black Alexander McQueen keyhole gown with bold shoulders and an electric blue embellished detail around the neckline.

Great Outfits: Thandie Newton

Thandie rocks my world in this gorgeous Matthew Williamson Resort 2010 silk dress. Her look is almost a head-to-toe carbon copy of the runway look, but Thandie opted for a skinny gold studded belt instead of the wider runway belt, and she has a smaller bejeweled clutch. Nude cut-away ankle boots complete this stunning look.

I never liked this Clavin Klein Resort 2010 dress and I never will, but that still doesn't stop me from appreciating how awesome Thandie Newton looks here. She is just so great a putting a look together. The dress nude dress has embroidered detail through-out and a gathered detail on the hip. Her dress was paired with nude sandals, invisible make-up, a shimmering box clutch and a sleek updo.

Thandie Newton knows how to combine grace, elegance and sexiness and here she does jus tthat in her navy asymmetrical silk Chanel Resort 2009 dress. Thandie keeps things on focus with a black patent clutch and subtly glittering sandals.

This is my favorite dress that I am dying to wear and Thandie Newton did not betray its gorgeousness. This stunning and delicate rose pink chiffon Blumarine Spring 2009 dress was presented as a halter, but Thaccessories, but she didn’t need those to shine, her inner glow radiated for all to see.andie opted to wear it as an off-the-shoulder dress. Her exquisite look was completed with gold accessories, but she didn’t need those to shine, her inner glow radiated for all to see.

Thandie Newton is a joyous rainbow in her Jonathan Saunders Spring 2009 floaty dress with a layered skirt. She wore her dress with gold strappy sandals, and added a touch of crimson to her lips.

Thandie's style is fresh and fun, colorful and classy and she does not betray in this cool Erdem Fall 2008 stunning dress that is a piece of art. I love her Guiseppe Zanotti gladiator heels and purple clutch.

Thandie is stunning and sexy in her Egyptian-inspired Jasmine Di Milo gown with a sheer panel on the front, and slits on the bottom half, to show off her legs.

Thandie is stunning in this gorgeous hot pink Matthew Williamson ruffled layered dress.

Thandie Newton is amazing in this stunning ivory Marios Schwab Spring 2008 pearl spiderweb concoction. Thandie is gorgeous and she is fabulously flaunting that fact. Her stunning 5 inch heels and white clutch complement this look.

Thandie is classy and sexy in this mysterious Alexander McQueen Spring 2008 gown with a stunning bright punk band belt and lace sleeve on her satuin gown.

Thandie wears my favorite stunning Giles Spring 2009 silk printed dress. I am in love, but Tandie, baby, what is up with the hair?

I like this bright pink Preen dress and I like it on Thandie Newton. This dress has energy to it and badassness to it that is hard come by with the color pink. Thandie keeps the focus on her dress with trusty black patent Louboutin black slingbacks, and a gold-zippered patent black clutch.

Thandie Newton walked the red carpet wearing a black and white strapless Prabal Gurung Spring 2010 brush painted rose print draped dress. I wish she wore more inspiring pumps. I love how her hair works with this dress.

Great Outfits: Amy Adams

Amy's look is understated and subtle here, but that is what makes her perfectly put together elegant look so classy. Amy's hair is glorious in tumbling waves, her dress fits perfectly everywhere and gives her the proper lift, and her velvet sash is an elegant detail. Heavy black pumps.
Amy Adams loves Milla Jovovich's vintage-inspired Jovovich-Hawk line and here Amy wears a bibbed smock dress with russet leather pumps and a gold chain bag.

Amy is gorgeous in her RM by Roland Mouret turquoise silk halterneck dress. I love the draping on the dress and the color on Amy. This look is stunning everything from her gorgeously styled hair, barely-there make up, cute butt to her stunning blush satin heels.

Amy looks chic in her RM by Roland Mouret dress. This silver dress has an asymmetrical hem, and an overshot shoulder, which she opted to fold down. She completed her look with black peep-toes, and a satin clutch. I wish she chose stunning or complementing jewels as she usually does, but here in the jewelry department she fails. But the look didn't need bling anyway.

Amy is classic in her stunning Giambattista Valli tulle overlay dress. This is class.

This RM by Roland Mouret mermaid gown is gorgeous. Not to over the top, very understated, very elegant. Wearing a necklace was a risk, but Amy pulls it off with the perfect gold tinted chains of pearls. As usual Amy makes a quite impact on the red carpet.

Amy wears a gorgeous Giambattista Valli gown, which had a corseted bodice, and gathered detailing on the front. This grape color is a refreshing color for her. Her make-up doesn't quite work, but anywho, she completes her look with a classic updo, black peep toes, and glittering H. Stern jewels.

Amy's strapless Dior dress has ruffles on the bodice, and also on her skirt, which has some volume. The actress completed her look with waves in her red hair, a black

lAmy Adams looked demure in a delicate lilac-hued RM by Roland Mouret dress. I love the pin-tuck detailing, and the pale lilac color against her porcelain skin.

The feminine dress is so adorable. I love how the flowy ruffle layer from the shoulders cascades down the skirt, and the leather belt that nips in the waist. Amy opted for a black belt to match her Christian Louboutin double platform heels.

Amy Adams glows in her Carolina Herrera silk faille dress with a brooch from Herrera's personal collection and Tiffany & Co. jewels. I love her clutch and her heels. The color match is stunning.

Amy Adams is an adorably pregnant Lady-In-Red (LIR) in a gorgeous, flattering Carolina Herrera ruffled silk dress with stunning bronze-red peep-toe heels.
