I can’t remember the last time I saw Taylor Swift in pants or jeans for that matter. The ultra girly country songbird changed her style tune for the December/January issue of Harper’s Bazaar, in which she dons a nude pant jumpsuit. Aside from that, nothing else has changed in terms of her style. The jumpsuit is nude, a color (if we can call it that) Swift loves to rock on and off the red carpet. She still has bangs, a trademark we’re not quite sure will ever change, aside from her curls that is.
The hit maker, whose won countless Grammy and CMA Awards for her break-up ballads and girl power songs, just wrapped up her summer fling with Conner Kennedy, of the Kennedy clan (and cue breakup song). She says she breaks up with guys when she starts feeling like she is the one wearing the pants on the relationship. Hmmm…she wants the guy to take on the traditional man role we suppose.
On wearing dresses instead of pants, Swift says she doesn’t repeat the same dress over again because it gets photographed all over. Excuse me Taylor but have you heard of the Duchess of Cambridge? You know, the one who goes by Kate Middleton? She’s beloved for wearing her clothes multiple times. Oh yea and another woman by the name of errr Michelle Obama. Who cares if some editor points out you’ve worn your dress before? Isn’t that what everyone does? Even Angelina Jolie and Blake Lively do it.
The issue hits newsstands November 27th but below are a few excerpts from Swift’s interview. Pick up your copy to check out the Paola Kudacki shot images of the singer.
On wearing dresses: “I’m in a predicament where I can’t wear a dress twice or else it’s pointed out in magazines,” she says. “So unfortunately I have to shop for dresses all the time.” “There’s just something so feminine about a dress,” she says. “Whether it’s a summertime dress that makes me feel carefree, an evening cocktail dress that makes me feel fancy or a vintage dress that makes me feel like a ’50s housewife — which I enjoy feeling like, for some reason — I just really like dresses.”
On dating: “It needs to be equal. If I feel too much like I’m wearing the pants, I start to feel uncomfortable and then we break up.” Relationships are “the ultimate collaboration,” she adds, but sometimes “it’s wonderful to hand over the reins to your boyfriend when you control so much of these big, high-pressure decisions, you know? That is a huge defining factor in who you choose to be with.”
On relationships as a source of inspiration for her music: “Some combinations of people are toxic, you know? You have to find the right one that isn’t just going to explode into fiery ash and destruction.” “Despite all of that and how unpleasant it is, as a writer you get a lot from it. It’s a crazy justification system. You know that guy you really wish you could erase from your memory? But then the answer is track six, eight, 12, and 13.”
On being friends with celebrities including Emma Stone and Selena Gomez: “We never talk about fashion, about career, about our ambitions or our projects,” she says of her pals. “We just talk about relationships, feelings, love, and boys.”
