Mary Katrantzou Resort 2015
Taylor Swift wears a blue version of this leotard from the Mary Katrantzou Resort 2015 collection.
With legs that go on for years, I do wish that this was more of a true romper and had extended into even a resemblance of shorts.
But I do give props to Taylor for trying out a new designer and for being fearless in moving forward with the designated “80s” fashion of the era.
View all the times Taylor has attended this event here.
I think that with Ellie Saab heels the purple version was better
TAYLORS OUTFIT WAS LIKE A MIX OF FOUR ERAS
SPARKLES LIKE FEARLESS
FRINGE LIKE SPEAK NOW
HIGH WAISTED LIKE RED
AND CROP TOPS LIKE 1989
DONT TOUCH ME
“As a teenager, I didn’t understand that saying you’re a feminist is just saying that you hope women and men will have equal rights and equal opportunities. What it seemed to me, the way it was phrased in culture, society, was that you hate men. And now, I think a lot of girls have had a feminist awakening because they understand what the word means. For so long it’s been made to seem like something where you’d picket against the opposite sex, whereas it’s not about that at all.” ― Taylor Swift on her views on Feminism
This picture has been floating around for a while, and I’ve kind of realised now why it makes me a combination of annoyed and sad.
This picture implies that all either of these girls have is their sexual identity. That’s it. The only thing that defines who both of these girls are, are the number of boyfriends they’ve had.
It’s basically saying you can’t call Miley Cyrus a bitch (I’m not even going to go into the word slut here, ok? I think it’s a disgusting word and shouldn’t be used to describe anyone no matter the circumstances for it) because she’s been with the same guy for three years and they’re engaged. She’s in a committed relationship; therefore she can’t be a bitch. Because that’s what defines her. Her relationship status defines her whole character.
It’s saying that Taylor Swift can’t be called sweet, elegant and inspirational because she’s had multiple partners in the past couples years (and like with the word slut I’m not getting into the absurdity of the statement that she’s had 13 boyfriends in 3 years). She hasn’t been in a long term relationship before; therefore she cannot be sweet, or elegant, and definitely not inspirational.
That’s what these pictures are saying. And that’s what anyone who brings up this sort of an argument is saying every single time. A females entire identity is defined by how many different people they’ve had sex with. By that standard I am no-one, because while being a heterosexual female I haven’t had a boyfriend, and in fact have barely even kissed a guys before. So essentially, with this argument, when we define who a girl is entirely by how many people they have, or haven’t had sex with I am no-one. That’s fun.
It’s just something to think about. Because it needs to stop, it really does. Before you go and say something like ‘she’s not sweet, she’s had, like, 4 boyfriends’ think about how you would feel if your entire person was defined by how many people you’d been in a relationship with. Because I’m sure you’d say there’s so much more to you. And there’s so much more to both of these girls, and any other female (and male) celebrities.
