Taylor Swift has a long list of BFFs: Lorde, Emma Stone, Jaime King, Selena Gomez, and Lena Dunham can all count on the singer to bake them cookies, visit Catalina Island, and dance in the front row of myriad award shows. But OK, even fans can get in touch with the 25-year-old to vent about boy problems or talk crop tops—only one can ask her to pose on the cover of a magazine. Rumor has it that Karlie Kloss and Swift will appear together in (or on) Vogue for the magazine’s March issue.
On Sunday night, Swift attended Golden Globes after parties with her posse and the fashion set was whispering (loudly) about the pair’s recent shoot. Speculation was swirling in hushed tones that the famous tome tapped Mario Testino or Annie Leibovitz—two of its go-to photographers—to capture the long-legged blondes posing together.
So why is Swift posing now? Her album, 1989, was released in October and was the best-selling LP of 2014; her tour kicks off in May and sold out in minutes; she just performed at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion and Jingle Balls across the country; and she’s graced the pages of Wonderland, Time, People, Lucky, Vogue UK, and more in just the past six months. Talk of the town is that she participated in the shoot as a favor to her model bestie. While Kloss is one of the most recognizable faces in fashion, she’s also attempting to break into other business sectors: She has Karlie’s Kookies at Momofuku Milk Bar, has been taking coding classes, and has a collaboration with Frame Denim. She’s yet to catapult beyond the runway and fashion, but if anyone can help her hit the mainstream it’s Swift.
Swift loves to play fairy godmother, granting wishes to those around her with the swipe of a credit card or commenting on a fan’s Instagram account. During the holiday season, she sent packages of presents to hundreds of her adoring Swifties, making fans literally sob with happiness; she treats her friends same way. Taking up-and-coming stars like Hailee Steinfeld and Sarah Hyland under her wing, she loves to document their outings from the beach to birthday parties. At the Golden Globes, Swift only took pictures with Lorde, who was nominated for best song. Jamie King wrote on Instagram: “#Squad! So happy to support @lordemusic and her nomination tonight! We did only group pictures to let her shine.”
So just like last night, Swift will stand by her friend’s side in solidarity. And hopefully get Kloss similar attention as well.
