Choose the Rose Garden over Madison Square, Taylor Nation.

Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who’s just had the first sunny day of spring that felt like spring instead of fall, we usually let some news simmer for a bit until we have enough media to show you. That being said, you probably guess I’m not much for commercial promos. The Sparkly Dressed makes it fun and that’s what I like to highlight.

The Princess In Red was dressed in blue for the Keds Style Icons event. You can read the official news release at Reuters. Since I’m not here to sell you anything, I’m going to focus on T-Swizzle. The Enchantress did a few interviews at the event, including one with Teen Vogue. I’m going to highlight two questions from that interview:

What’s your spirit animal?

A fox. Because they have to run and hide a lot and I have to run and hide a lot too. I didn’t mean that to sound sad! In my head it sounded like more of a statement and when I said it, it sounded like something you say before you cry. [Laughs]

Interesting. I would’ve bet the house she would say a cat. But as much of a cat lover as Taylor is, it’s true she resembles a fox – or her idea of how a fox behaves. But the Queen of Sparks has a daring and confident side, one that I hope she’s not shy of acknowledging some day. I guess she prefers to be modest about it.

What’s your motto?

“I got 99 problems”—no, I’m just kidding. Did you ever watch the movie Love Actually where Hugh Grant’s voiceover says, “If you look around, love actually is all around”? That’s my favorite motto.

It’s kind of an expected response, after all that’s her favorite movie of all time. I do love that she tried to make a joke to spice up the answer. A little bravado is always a plus, Tay! 🙂 You can read the full interview on Teen Vogue.
