And Taylor has re-emerged. It’s the first time we’ve seen her at an event after the Kimye scandal and the implosion of Hiddleswift, and what a well-chosen one it was: At the Tommy Hilfiger show, she would have been able to control whether or not she spoke to any media (and if so, which ones), and likely entered and exited flanked by security. Every photo would be about her playing the role of smiling, happy, supportive bestie to Gigi Hadid, who walked in the show and debuted a capsule collection with Tommy. Tay even sang along to that Calvin Harris song she supposedly co-wrote in secret, so she comes off like a great sport, and generates chipper headlines without having to say a word to any reporters. I’m not saying these aren’t necessarily sincere things she’s doing — Taylor may well have wanted to be there for her friend, and might be super proud of that song. It can be all of those things and more, but it can ALSO simultaneously be really useful and helpful and convenient to her PR needs. That’s why you pay your team the big bucks.
After the jump, we embedded a couple Instas and tweets from our past few days at New York Fashion Week, in case you’re curious.
