Drum roll, please! In the latest issue of Grazia, we proudly announce this year's top 10 best dressed. Our judging panel consists of footwear supremo Manolo Blahnik, fashion designer Zuhair Murad, Grazia's fashion director Susannah Frankel and Grazia's fashion editor Catherine Nieto who trawled through the style stars of the year to narrow down the year's finest dressers. Each day on Grazia Daily, we'll be counting down the top 10 so stay tuned. In at number 8... it's Taylor Swift!

There have been a few ‘Swifties’ (as fans of the twenty-something tycoon are known) over at Grazia HQ for a while now, but it’s only this year that Taylor Swift has really entered the fashion spotlight with a new roster of preppy, fifties inspired looks.

In 2012, we saw Taylor's style mature as she emerged from her super feminine, princess signature look: gone was the dated glitz and in its place were retro-style tea-length dresses, skinny jeans and even - GASP - a minimalist white gown accessorised with poker straight hair and a brand new blunt fringe!
Taylor's hot new look was showcased brilliantly in October when she graced the cover of music mag RollingStones, in a varsity jacket and denim shorts accessorised with her favourite beaten up brogues.

Taylor made a whopping $57 million by May of this year (according to Forbes’ rich list), but the singer's tastes are just like most 22-year-olds, and we love her for that. Her penchant for high-street denim, vintage bags and rock-star Ray Bans get our vote every time.
