Check out country music star Taylor Swift becoming the newest Covergirl.
The songstress, known for her blond ringlets and girl-next-door charm, has been busy collecting armfuls of accolades. In February, the 20-year-old won four Grammys and was the youngest artist ever to take home the coveted prize for album of the year. In November, she won four awards from the Country Music Association, which named her entertainer of the year.
Last month, Swift got a mention in People magazine’s “World’s Most Beautiful People” special issue.
Now Swift joins Queen Latifah, Ellen DeGeneres, Rihanna and Drew Barrymore as a spokeswoman for the mass market cosmetic brand owned by Procter & Gamble.
“It’s like a dream come true,” said the 20-year-old in a statement, noting that she has admired many of the brand’s earlier spokeswomen since she was “a little girl”.
