Two things we can confirm: This is supposed to be Taylor Swift. And it’s not December yet.
We know, we know — we wouldn’t believe us either given all the evidence against our claims: the stringy hair, the … off-ness in the face, the festive red and green color scheme and the jeweled-neckline sweater every women’s mag pushes as a holiday-party staple. But despite all the signs, this is indeed Taylor Swift covering InStyle November 2013.
Still don’t buy it? Here’s an Ed Sheeran quote from the cover story via MyFashionLife:
“Ed and I are such good friends. I have never had such a close guy friend before. It’s always kind of creepy because with a guy friend-girl friend situation, it usually feels like one person always wants more. That’s not the case here.”
So there you have it. Although we’re pretty concerned about the size and state of Taylor’s head here, you know we’re more worried about magazines (figuratively) putting out the tinsel even before the jack-o-lanterns begin to rot.
