Taylor Swift has undergone a pretty significant rebrand to coincide with the release of her new album "Reputation." She's darker, moodier, sexier and generally more grown up in matters of the heart and personal relationships, and this change in attitude is reflected in her recent (mostly black, goth-leaning) fashion choices. Swift's last big makeover came in 2016, when she debuted a bleach blond bob on the May cover of Vogue ahead of the Met Gala (where she infamously hooked up with Tom Hiddleston behind Calvin Harris's back, an event recalled in the lyrics to "Getaway Car"), and on Monday, Editor-in-Chief Edward Enninful revealed the controversial pop star's first high fashion post-"Reputation" cover for the January 2018 issue of Vogue UK.
Shot by Mert and Marcus, the cover image — which accompanies the story entitled "Taylor Remade" — features a studded red dress by Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent, accented with a smoky eye, black lipstick and high-shine finger waves for an element of Old Hollywood glamour. The industry's been waiting with bated breath for Swift to make her magazine comeback, as she's been largely off the radar since Kim Kardashian's scathing GQ story dropped in June of last year. But by the looks of it, Swift has come out of the drama fiercer than ever — at least sartorially speaking — and Enninful already has some major bragging rights two issues into Vogue UK tenure for snagging the artist before anyone else.
