I think Kanye snatching the mic from her made her even more popular. Taylor Swift is known as the sweet innocent looking country singing teen, but she is growing into a sexy woman right before our eyes. With her working on a new sound, Taylor decided to bring a new look, and it’s definantly working in her favor. Her photo shoot with Nigel Barker is looking HOT! Click down bottom for more of Taylor.


The singer teamed up with famed photog Nigel Barker for 8 Hours/Taylor Swift, a limited edition photo book that captures the crooner’s various sides: casual, Hollywood glam and and performer-chic. According to Sony, 8 Hours promises to be “one the most extensive photo collections of Swift published to date.” (You know, not counting the posters on your wall).

When we caught up with Barker at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show red carpet last night, he said he was surprised by Swift’s sultry side. “She’s not necessarily known for her sex appeal,” Barker told EW. “But she is someone who is emerging in a way that I’ve never seen.”

Barker spent a day (or, you know, 8 Hours) shooting the star on location in Southern California. “You’ll see her transform from a young girl into this rock and roll superstar, totally in your face,” he explained. “It’s unbelievable how she’s changed and of course how the music is changing and evolving. She’s one to watch.”
