Taylor Swift Rocks in Rodarte for Vogue

Cover Girl Taylor Swift
Vogue US February 2012

There isn't a persona Taylor Swift can't play. She has portrayed many different types of characters in her music videos and for magazine shoots, proving that she is adaptable to any style. The 22-year old shows off her versatility once again in the February 2012 issue of Vogue magazine. Taylor is transformed into a 70's style Rock Star for the shoot, photographed by the legendary Mario Testino. Interestingly, Taylor wears focal pieces from US design label Rodarte throughout the editorial. It's almost as though this was intended as a campaign to promote the brand, with Taylor Swift as their ambassador.


On the cover, Taylor wears a purple and yellow hand-knit basket stitch Rodarte sweater with a camel coloured floppy felt hat. To the right, she wears a marigold and blue flower print paneled top, from Rodarte's Spring 2012 range.

A psychedelic background frames Taylor, who is dressed in a cream leather and wool trimmed jacket and hand-knit top from Rodarte's Fall 2009 collection, teamed with Rag & Bone tights and rose embroidered cowboy boots by Miu Miu.

Continuing with the seventies boho vibe, Taylor is decked out in a floaty navy and lime brushstroke print Rodarte dress, worn over Levi's jeans and Miu Miu boots. She dons a floppy Patricia Underwood hat, with Rayban's and a fringed Andrew Marc bag. I prefer her belted look compared to the one on the runway.

Even in black and white, this bronze beaded lamé leather 2009 Rodarte dress shimmers on Taylor. Her black thigh-high boots are by Michael Kors.

Taylor is hippie chic in an off-white embroidered prairie coat, paired with a marbled wool mini, both by Rodarte, once again. The look is styled with floral cowboy boots by Miu Miu and a tasseled Carlos Falchi bag. Don't you love her straight locks and new blunt fringe?

If this dress looks familiar, it's the same one Elle Fanning wore to the Critic's Choice Awards two weeks ago. This mint green Rodarte silk chiffon dress is imprinted with yellow sunflowers and has a sheer peasant style neckline. Taylor wears white cut-out boots by Jil Sander.


Do you think the focus of this photo shoot was to put Rodarte back on the fashion map, using the star power of Taylor Swift? Well, we can expect to see much more from the brand after this exclusive feature in Vogue.

Wow! She looks so amazing in these photos! Hmm, this is definitely a side of her I haven't seen before. Hey, I think she reminded me of Heldi Klum here! lol. If these photos were for promoting Rodarte, she definitely did a good job!

Wow, I must say I am positively surprised as I never thought I would see the angelical Taylor Swift portraying a 70's rocker. The editorial is great and the cover is simply fantastic.

I actually usually find Taylor Swift looks 'mall ratty' and not so high fashion but in these photos she looks great! Vogue works their magic once again!

Taylor looks better than ever in these photos. Very interesting to have one label used so dominantly in the spread. I love Rodarte and these pieces are all so lovely - hope it gets them back in the game :)

She's so cute and the cover looks fabulous! I loved her hair and the clothes too! Particularly that dress where she poses with the guitar! So 70s (and I love the 70s fashion!)
I was out the whole day yesterday! Things get hectic now that I am only 3 weeks away from my trip!
But now I am back and I just gave you an award!!!
(I'm trying to build courage up to change my hair... Taylor's hair is great! ;-)

One word... wow. I like Taylor Swift but have only really ever seen her in pretty, soft, floaty things). She looks fantastic here. Is it a campaign to promote Rodarte? I'm going for yes - it's a subtle and clever way to do it

Miu said...

You're right, she looks great everywhere!
