Pretty certain that under that extra long mint green train, are those brown country boots T-Swift loves so much.

After glamming out her country boots - with Taylor and Swift printed in red love hearts on each boot - Taylor is really going for it out on stage. Least we know whose boots they belong to if they were lost back stage!

Arriving at the 2007 American Music Awards on the Red Carpet in a LBD and country boots; wouldn't expect anything less from the rising star.

It's blonde curls as usual for the country star, with maybe just a bit too much blue eyeshadow with that halter neck purple mini dress. Fear not, things will soon be changing.

Taylor definitely looks like she belongs on stage! Running up and down stage in her country boots and long curls, this has become the starlet's trademark I'd say.

As she walks up to collect yet another music award, T doesn't look so young anymore with her hair pinned back and a beautiful drop down strapless gown.

The boots will always be simply 'so Taylor', but the elbow-length fingerless leather gloves? Not to sure about this look.

With her crazy curly hair slowly fading out, and her country boots being swapped out for a more 'formal' boot, T is growing super fast and we are loving her even more.

This backless, black, floor-length gown and a simple pinned back hairstyle sure got people talking about this small town country singer as she arrived at the 2009 Grammy Awards.

By 2010, the country boots are well and truly done and in the back cupboard and those long long legs are walking up red carpet after red carpet.

This thin strapped tasseled silver dress looks absolutely stunning on Taylor. Still showing off those famous ringlets, T lets loose just enough curls to fill her neckline.

Tay looks so proud here and deservedly so. However, she's still missing that extra large clutch... think she'd learn from last year.

Taylor keeps turning heads at the Grammy's, and in 2012 she arrived in a gold open back high neck dress, looking like a true Hollywood Star. Yet another Grammy that T leaves with her hands full.

With the curls just about gone, Tay is just about all grown up, and no wonder she's a hit with the guys (until she has a hit single about them). She is one hell of a Stunner!

Taking home 8, yes you read it - 8, billboard awards home, that badblood clutch still isn't big enough Tay! Looking hot as in that sparkling playsuit, with that epic clutch, Tay had her walking pants and ready for a night full of walking up on to stage.

Over the years, Taylor has had such an epic career and its seems its only going to get bigger. Each year, she impresses us even more than the last and each year she looks better, fitter, and kind-of shocks us each time! This super bright two piece set, and and even shorter hair do is just killer and we LOVE it!

Taylor was absolutely slaying at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party! With a backless, leg split and low scoop chest piece, I'm sure she was breaking hearts all over the world!

Remember when T-Swift did a Freaky Friday with us and flipped to T-Momsen on us. It didn't last too long, but she definitely had us all talking.

We all know 2017 was a rough year for Taylor, but in true Swift form, she wrote about it, stood up to her haters and made some singles that got everyone talking (you either loved them or hated them) but one thing we won't forget... "the old taylor can't come to the phone right now" and we can't wait to see what the new Taylor brings!
