When Taylor Swift walked the ACM Award red carpet in 2006, most photographers were left scratching their heads, wondering which artist brought his or her teenage daughter and why she'd gone rogue. These days, the country music superstar carries herself a little differently, but the same humble girl still shines through.

Gone now are the curly locks in favor of straight, blonde hair with bangs. Not too much else has changed however, which is somewhat surprising because Swift was just 16-years-old in the above 'then' picture. Her style is more sophisticated at 22, and she poses more like a model than a happy-go-lucky high school junior who prefers sundresses and homemade bracelets.
