Taylor Swift looks luscious in Valentino as the country star establishes herself in the fashion world with a new photo spread in the UK edition of Marie Claire magazine. She looks country chic and exudes femininity.
The country crossover star has steamrolled the competition with her biting songs about love, heartache and romantic breakups and raised eyebrows for snagging one of the young Kennedys. Her brand couldn’t be hotter.
She just signed a collaboration with sneaker maker Keds for a limited-edition collection of red Champion shoes.
Taylor Swift Sexy Country Chic in Marie Claire
The promotion is tied to the release of her upcoming album Red. The campaign will stress the empowerment of girls. The shoes go on sale the same day as the album Oct. 22.
Swift is scheduled to be in New York City this morning (Oct. 15) to premiere her new song “State of Grace” on ABC’s Good Morning America. The song will go on sale tomorrow (Oct. 16) on iTunes.
The 22-year-old singer also recently snagged the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Swift talks about her anxieties and the reason why she’s a bit of a control freak. “I think I have a big fear of things spiraling out of control. Out of control and dangerous and reckless and thoughtless scares me, because people get hurt.”
In the Marie Claire interview, entitled “Music is Everything That I Am,” she talks about her revenge songs and her desire for a stable relationship and children. “The idea of pouring everything you are into another person when you’re a parent is amazing to me,” she says.
Much of her new album appears to be inspired by her breakup with actor Jake Gyllenhaal. But Swift is coy about targeting the inspiration for her music.
In the shoot, Swift posed for photographer David Roemer, looking thoroughly bohemian under the style direction of fashion editor Jayne Pickering. Gianpaolo Ceciliato handled makeup in muted tones and hair stylist Miki gave Swift a feathered look, without the curls she’s famous for.
