Look: For 10 Years Teyana Taylor Has Been Ahead Of The Wave, See Her Style Evolution

Whoosh! The style icon has come a long way.

Published November 10th

Pretty much everything about Teyana Taylor is #goals. 

As an uber talented singer, songwriter, dancer and actress, Teyana oozes artistry. Her debut on MTV's My Super Sweet 16 all waythe up to her upcoming appearance on season four of Hit The Floor on BET provides evidence that Teyana has always been ahead of the curve when it came to style trends. Trading in her super sporty, skater girl style for more taylored looks, she's bloomed, blossomed and blinged her way to budding fashion icon status.

Let's took a look down memory lane as we celebrate and salute this style maverick from the time we met her in '07 to now. 

Shall we?
