Taylor Swift’s first magazine cover since the release of her latest album “Reputation” is the January 2018 issue of British Vogue. Not too shabby.
Swift shattered records with the release of her sixth studio album, selling one million copies in just the first week. British Vogue’s cover perfectly encapsulates Swift’s new, tough-girl image.
The songstress graces the cover wearing a red billowing Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello dress. Her golden curls are pinned back in a tight, sleek fashion styled by Paul Hanlon. Swift’s signature bold lips got an upgrade in a vampy, brown shade.
British Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief, Edward Enninful, commented on working with Swift saying, “For me, the chance to help transform America’s most fascinating sweetheart was a joy. As we took the pop icon on an epic fashion journey with photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, what struck me most about Taylor was her brilliant sense of humor, but also how, for a woman in her twenties, she has an incredible sense of who she is. Obviously she is a world-class lyricist — and has written a stunning poem just for Vogue on the timely subject of reinvention and moving on — but she also takes her duties as a role model very seriously.”
Photographers, Mert and Marcus also shot Swift’s album art for “Reputation.” The images in British Vogue are much moodier than how we are used to seeing Swift. She poses above in an all black look with a sheer top covered in pearl details.
A nude, sheer look with rhinestone embellishments. Could the old Taylor not be dead after all? Possibly.
We can’t wait to see the rest of the feature in January.
