Taylor Swift Says The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Inspired Her Wardrobe For The 1989 Tour
By now, fans know that heading to a show on Taylor Swift's 1989 tour is going to result in seeing Tay in shimmer, sparkles, glitter, and more sparkles. I mean, in her famous SNL monologue song she owned up to liking "glitter and sparkly dresses," so Swift's 1989 Tour Wardrobe being packed full of glittery dresses (and jumpsuits and crop tops and skirts) should come as no surprise. However, these specific sparkle-filled ensembles were distinctly inspired by something — and someone: Taylor Swift spills that 1989 Tour's wardrobe is inspired by Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
“I loved playing the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, so I took inspiration from the costume designers and how brilliant they are with glitter. There are a lot of sparkly elements to my 1989 tour,” Swift told People. She said that her outfits go perfectly with the bracelets the crowd wears and creates a magical effect. "Not only is the crowd being entertained by all the sparkly stuff we’re doing on stage — we’re looking out on to 60,000 people who look just like a glittery sky of stars,” she told the magazine. “Ugh, I love it.”
