From “Skateboard Tey” to Runway Slay: Teyana Taylor’s Style Evolution Will Inspire You to Upgrade Your Closet ASAP

From Jordans to Louboutins to... Jordans occassionally.

When it comes to style transformations, few are more impressive than Teyana Taylor’s. The multi-talented star went from tomboy chic on MTV’s My Super Sweet Sixteen to a New York Fashion Week-requested model within a decade. Even in her more dressed down phase, though, Tey Tey has always managed to be a trendsetter. The Harlem native showed that you can be sexy while cozy, and the game hasn’t been the same since. It’s quite amazing to see her experiment with fashion and tap into her more playful, feminine style while still rocking some Jordan’s and a fitted every now and then.

Flip through the gallery of Teyana’s complete style transformation, and don’t miss the premiere of Teyana & Iman March 26th at 9/8c only on VH1!
