The term itself is new, but the concept is a tradition — essentially, right after a guy dumps you, you hightail it to the hair salon, slip into your sexiest duds, and throw on some confidence-boosting makeup à la Swift at the 2013 People's Choice Awards. After a very public separation with One Direction’s Harry Styles, the singer hit the red carpet in a plunging Ralph Lauren gown (check out that un-Swift like cleavage!), smokey eyes, and an elegant braided updo. She's obviously had plenty of opportunities to reinvent herself post-split (Gyllenhaal, Mayer, Kennedy), but this has to be the most drastic change for the crooner yet!
