Her makeup is on point in an exaggerated cat eye and a deep part I wish she’d wear more often. I assume she is wearing a red lip because of course she is.
Although Tay plays the good girl/victim in many of her songs (she is the leading lady in her own life, after all), a smokey eye + black leather does not seem like it portrays the innocent friend wronged by the doublecrosser in Bad Blood. For that matter, the name Catastrophe isn’t exactly sweet and docile either.
So what if Tay is going to be the bad guy in this video??? I’d love to see her play with a little more edge in her storytelling and her looks (more leather, Taylor!), so I hope that’s what we see in a few weeks.(Let’s also hope this video is more exciting than the boring, if somewhat dreamy, Style, am I right?)
We all know Taylor is a good girl, her sweet style and numerous documented kindnesses tell us so. Going edgier could be risky for her image, but surely telling wider stories would also stretch her skills. Plus her reputation is so cemented and her fans so loyal, I don’t know that anything would knock her off her pedestal. So experiment away, Taylor!
