Vogue editor Anna Wintour said she wanted to turn Taylor Swift “into a sort of a rock ‘n’ roll chick” for her latest cover — and it looks like she decided to keep the look a little longer.
The platinum-haired singer, who served as Wintour’s cohost for the 2016 Met Gala, opted for an edgy Louis Vuitton mini that fit this year’s “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” theme.
The silver mini featured cutout detailing around the waist, along with a tiered ruffle skirt. She paired it with knee-high caged heels and dramatic black lipstick, along with her shaggy bob.
Her best accessory, though, is her confident attitude. The model-like posing helps, too — she’s learned a lot from her supermodel squad.
The whole Met Gala look is a serious departure for Swift, but she told Vogue that she embraces change.
“I can look back at an old photo and tell you roughly what year it’s from,” she said. “Going through different phases is one of my favorite things about fashion. I love how it can mark the passage of time. It’s similar to my songs in that way — it all helps identify where I was at in different points of my life.”
