Taylor Swift for ELLE Magazine
Miss Tay-Tay done got herself all dolled up to T Lo’s specifications. It takes a special person to make Taylor Swift look T Lo-approved on the style front, and that special person is Joe Zee, apparently.
Taylor Swift covers the March 2013 issue of ELLE magazine photographed by Carter Smith and styled by Joe Zee in a Louis Vuitton dress.
But before we get to the clothes, Tay has a few (defensive) things she needs to get off her chest:
On her insecurity: “Middle school was what programmed me to be semi-insecure, like, all of the time. I didn’t fit in….I’d stand on the outside of the circle but I was never really in. That’s when I started to realize there’s this thing called rejection.”
On ex-boyfriends: “I don’t think I’ve ever yelled at an ex-boyfriend. Ever. I’m not a yeller. I’m not a fit thrower. If something is done, it’s done.”
On the speculation surrounding her songs and famous exes: “To me it’s just writing songs the way I always have. It’s me sitting on my bed feeling pain I didn’t understand, writing a song, and understanding it better. If people want to dissect the lyrics, that’s their right, but it’s all coming from the exact same place as where I started. It’s just something I do to feel better.”
On rumors: “I’m sure if I looked up the latest Google Alerts rumor it would say I’m chasing somebody who doesn’t like me as much as I like him – people love that angle on me. They’re like “Oh Taylor, coming on too strong again, chasing boys. I never chase boys. They don’t like it!”
That’s fascinating, dear. Do go on.
On second thought, don’t go on. We want to look at your clothes.

Freaking fabulous. See? We don’t hate her. We hate the way she dresses herself. This is all pretty-girl with a soupcon of rocker chick blended in; exactly the kind of look that suits her the best at this stage of her life and career. That Saint Laurent shot is giving us life.
Let this be a lesson: No white dresses, Tay! Don’t worry, no one will think you’re a slut if you wear a color or a print.
