There are lots of musicians who date models. It's kind of a time-honored tradition at this point. But not Taylor Swift -- she just wants to be friends with them!

Over the past several months, Swift (who's undeniably modelesque herself), 24, has made mates with fashion person after fashion person, each more willowy and Wintour-approved than the last. From taking super cute scenic road trips to adorably crashing the homes of ambassadors abroad, Swift and Co. always seem to have the BEST TIME EVER! without so much as smudging their perfectly applied red lipstick.

Without further ado, I present you with an exhaustive guide to Taylor Swift's best fashion friends.

Karlie Kloss, model

Known for: Appearing in Vogue on a monthly basis, having her ribs retouched, getting a haircut named after her, wearing a Native American lingerie costume at the 2012 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

Swifty-est Pastimes: PG-touching Taylor Swift during the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, uttering the phrase "She and I need to be best friends!" in regards to Taylor Swift, taking the "best road trip ever" through Northern California (and having an undisclosed person document whole thing), inspiring Taylor Swift's new haircut, walking to lunch in NYC and giggling about boys (probably), generally looking like Taylor Swift.
