For such a pretty young woman, it's surprising that Taylor Swift appeals less to horny 16-year-old boys than sweet 12-year-old girls.
But compared to most pop tarts (read: Britney Spears) out there, this country siren isn't a bad role model. She keeps it classy, never trashy.
So last night, when Ms. Swift swept into Miami to the delight of her tween-y fans, a pre- and barely post-pubescent crowd arrived en masse to show Ms. Swift some love with adorably crazy ensembles and innocent screams of joy.
See the cut for ten tween fashion freakouts spotted outside Taylor Swift's Speak Now show at the American Airlines Arena.
As you probably already know, Taylor's favorite number is 13 and whaddya know, she performed at American Airlines Arena on November 13! These two huge Swift-addicts literally went bananas over the singer. Luckily, they were part of a fruit salad group for Halloween and the costumes served two purposes. That's called thinking outside the box.
Look at this mini-Swift! She's rocking out in the shimmery dress paired nicely with leather boots. Red lipstick on a young girl like that, it's daring, and perhaps controversial, but Taylor'd probably approve.
These gals were having some real pun out there... or something like that. It's T-Party time! There's nothing like dressing up just like your best buddy to enjoy a night of girl power girl tunes.
These guys LOVE T-Swift! Just look at those hands! That Hello Kitty bag is making a statement, and that statement is that childhood hasn't entirely passed. There's still some innocence even though the fancy fem dress and boots are pretty punk rock.
You know what's really cool? This girl's outfit. Sure she isn't hyper-feminine, but she's got her look under control. Natural. That's what being young is about. Enjoy your skin before makeup becomes a necessity.
Wait, what was TS's favorite number again? Twelve? Twenty? All these guys needed was a little puffy paint, matching shirts and a sharpie to get their good luck message across. Love that there's a young man in there. He's stylin' with the cut off sleeves. We're feeling ya, dude.

Yet another young 'un with pizzaz. Sure she's a little more Liza than Swift, but she got the heart hands memo, so that's good.
This is one of those rare times where saying, "Are you two sisters?" actually isn't just a come-on. Fun, flirty, and sophisticated, this mom and daughter team is looking age appropriate and concert-ready.
The message on this glittery instrument is something worth paying attention to. It seems that Taylor is the reason for the teardrops on this guitar. Tie-dye maiden, dry your eye. T-Swift loves you too even though your guitar is a bit misshapen.
