Taylor Swift Covers 'GQ' For The First Time & Looks Unrecognizable — PHOTO

A sold out world tour, countless Grammys and VMAs, and a record breaking 20 million views on her star-studded Bad Blood music video, there is no doubt that this is the year of T-Swizzle. Now, she can add yet another accolade to her impressive resume — Taylor Swift landed her very first GQ cover, on which she flaunts a totally different look than her signature red lips, cat eyes, and sleek locks.

The 25-year-old looks gorgeous posing in front of a picturesque beach backdrop wearing a taupe long tank with a black bikini that peeks out just a little underneath. Her hair was styled in shaggy beach waves that partially covered her face, and she appears to be sporting a #nomakeup makeup look apart from some nude liner and pale lipstick.

This is definitely not the Swift we are used to seeing. Where is the metallic skater skirt? The crop top? The sequins? And what about her beloved red pout? It seems the pop star underwent a bit of a make-under for this cover shoot, perhaps to show the world that she is capable of versatile looks. Personally, I'm a huge fan of this au naturel type of style on her.

Take a look at the gorgeous cover.

Slay, Tay Tay.

While she doesn't do it often, Swift has glammed down and rocked uncharacteristic looks before. let's take a look at six other magazine covers where she looked nothing like herself.

1. Wonderland

Talk about #BrowGoals.

2. Maxim

Grungy slicked-back hair totally suits her.

3. Vogue UK

Swift, is that you?

4. Rolling Stone

This is as racy as it gets for the singer.

5. Cosmopolitan China

This is such a hidden gem.


I know this is Swift, but she looks strangely unlike herself, doesn't she?
