Editorial : Taylor Swift & Karlie Kloss for Vogue
Thursday 19th February, 2015
KARLIE & TAYLOR HAVE BEEN INSEPARABLE from the first moment they met. It is one of those friendships that occurs instantly and lasts a lifetime, leaving one wondering how did they spend all these years without a girl friend who is who is perfectly complementary to their personality, yet simultaneously so different. “People had been telling us for years we needed to meet,” says Taylor, with makeup artists remarking how strikingly similar they were, until Lily Aldridge finally introduced them at the SNL. A few months later, they spontaneously embarked on a road trip to Big Sur, which the editorial spread perfectly emulates. Running along the beach at sunset, driving along winding roads in a convertible, taking endless selfies…the perfect American adventure.
What would be a Vogue editorial without the exquisite clothes? The first shot of Kloss and Swift wearing gowns from the Oscar de la Renta SS15 collection is perhaps the most striking, with the trailer in the background creating the ideal contrast to the elegant gilded dresses, and the sunset providing perfect lighting—showing two women who are stars in their own right, whether in the fashion or music industry, yet consider themselves normal girls sharing passions and adventures. —Victoria Images via Vogue

Victoria lives in the south of Spain, having moved there from her native country Ukraine when she was just a child. She finds herself looking up to timeless icons from past decades including Jackie O, Grace Kelly, Katherine Deneuve and Audrey Hepburn, and longing for sunny afternoons on the French Riviera and walks along the Seine during spring. Always overdressed and dishing out on tailored pieces and shoes – secretly dreaming they were from Dior or Saint Laurent – she dresses for herself rather than others, and would trade breakfast for Vogue or a one way ticket to anywhere beautiful.
