Taylor Swift has that red-lip thing that you like in video for ‘Style’
This thing basically directed itself, right?
Taylor Swift posted the music video for her latest single early Friday, and as befits a tune called “Style,” the clip more or less functions as a catalog of the various looks that Swift describes in the song.
Cutting sensually between Swift and her co-star Dominic Sherwood (who, as Swift pointed out on Twitter, “has 2 DIFFERENT COLORED EYES”), the video offers up “that red-lip, classic thing that you like” and “that James Dean daydream look in your eyes.”
“That long hair slicked back, white T-shirt”? Check. “That good girl faith and a tight little skirt”? They actually look more like tight little shorts, but yeah.
What you might not have expected is a creepy homage to David Lynch’s “Mulholland Drive,” with Sherwood looking in the rear-view mirror of his car and finding Swift staring back at him.
But that’s in there too.
