There’s something different about Taylor Swift lately. No, it’s not the hair…
The guitar-strumming country music teen has blossomed into a full-fledged pop icon. And, based on some old-to-new photo comparisons, it appears that her body has adapted to keep up with her expanding empire.
Taylor stepped out on the Golden Globes carpet in a backless, plum Donna Karen Atelier mermaid gown.
And, as cameras flashed and many marveled at Tay’s ability to steal the spotlight, some noticed that, from her chin to lower sternum, she’s, well… Bigger.
Comparing two photos, one from 2007 when she was 18 and one from now at 23 at the Golden Globes, there are some obvious differences…
Before: Her style and figure are consistent with her music: underdeveloped and relatable to tweens.
After: A woman. A cougar even, attracting the most attractive cubs in the Hollywood forest. She fills out every inch of that purple-toned dress in all the right places.
“I don’t know of anyone that suddenly grew boobs at 18,” one female HS co-worker noted as we scanned the cleavage.
Several outlets have reported that Taylor did get some boob work done. Some, like the UK’s Daily Mail, go so far as to have a plastic surgeon speculate on the matter.
So Hollyscoop called in our own experts to weigh in:
"Because Taylor is so thin and fit, it would be unusual for her to gain volume in the breasts without the use of breast implants. The new shape and increased size of her breasts would lead one to believe that she has indeed possibly had a breast augmentation surgery," says Dr. Gary Motykie, M.D., a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
"In my opinion, it appears obvious that Taylor Swift has had a breast augmentation. Her breasts are visibly larger in her recent photos as compared to previous pictures. They also now have the rounded contour, heightened cleavage and perky shape of a recent breast enhancement (performed within the last year or so). She appears to have gone from an A to C cup," says Beverly Hills-based plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Rey, AKA "Dr. 90210."
The subject of Taylor’s boobs is so intricate and engrossing that a Tumblr has been set up specifically dedicated to their classification and understanding.
It’s hard to say when, if ever, Taylor might have had a procedure done. Scanning through photo-after-photo of the 23-year-old’s boobs (all part of a day’s work), her breast shape and size seems to remain consistent, at least as far back as November.
Of course, there are other explanations—makeup, birth control, weight gain, etc.—that could account for differences in her curves, so we can’t say for sure. And we can’t exactly ask her, can we?
For now we’ll just have to look, guess and enjoy.
