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.
