When it comes to Taylor Swift, the multi-hyphenated musician has two modes of operating. The first is to work in hidden references so obscure they take years to uncover. The second form is less than subtle, with overt displays that can’t help but garner headlines.
Swift’s latest public foray is the latter, with the musician using the downtime between her multi-million dollar grossing Eras Tour to reprieve her “squad” era from 2014. How very fitting considering the recent release of “1989 (Taylor’s Version)”.
Over the weekend, Swift eschewed spending evenings in New York with her new boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, for a blatant display of female empowerment by taking a group of celebrity friends for dinner.
In attendance with Swift’s long-term best friends, Selena Gomez and Gigi Hadid, and Swift’s newer confidants, Sophie Turner and Brittany Mahomes. Cara Delevingne also accompanied Swift’s squad, though she wasn’t pictured with the group during the outing.
For the occasion, Swift and her girl group frequented the upmarket Japanese restaurant BondST in Hudson Yards, putting on varying displays of after-dark dressing. Or, “Midnights” dressing, considering this is a Swift outing.
Hadid and Swift sported similar prep-inspired outfits, with the supermodel looking to a slouchy cashmere button-down dress from her label Guest In Residence and a pair of heeled leather boots.
Swift looked to a pleated Prince of Wales check mini skirt from Miu Miu, a black long-sleeve shirt and Stella McCartney accessories, including similar stiletto boots and a croc-embossed bucket bag made from vegan materials.
Continuing from Turner’s rendezvous in Paris, where she was spotted kissing aristocrat Peregrine Pearson, the Game of Thrones alum wore the quintessential French girl look: structured blue jeans, pointed heels and a sculpted blazer.
Gomez rounded out the group with a different take on sweater dressing in a slouchy, knitted beige dress.
It would be remiss not to mention that luxury-label wardrobes aren’t the only thing this group shares, with the likes of Swift, Turner and Hadid all previously linked to Joe “Mr. Perfectly Fine” Jonas. Gomez also previously dated Hadid’s ex-boyfriend and baby daddy, Zayn Malik after the pair broke up.
If there’s one thing Swift and her friends do better than revenge, it’s revenge dressing. Talk about vigilante sh*t!
