Taylor Swift is rarely seen without her posse of famous pals, from Lorde to Selena Gomez and Karlie Kloss to name but a few. And Wednesday was no different, as the star was joined by British supermodel of the moment Cara Delevingne on her shopping excursion in New York. With rumours of discord in the Swift household following her parents’ separation, the 24-year-old appeared a little sombre as she pounded the pavement solo at first, picking up a bag full of goodies at clothing store Theory in the trendy Meatpacking District before being joined by her new pal. The leggy blonde was looking as lithe as ever, just days after wowing in a white cropped top and black high-waisted skirt featuring a thigh-high slit as she hit the red carpet at the 49th Academy Of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday.
She perfectly showcased her seemingly endless pins in a decidedly summery black a white short-sleeved dress featuring a medallion design that was cinched in at the waist by a small black belt.The statuesque beauty added height to her already impressive 5ft 10in frame with a pair of black lace-up booties. She carried a small mushroom-colored handbag in the crook of one arm, along with a large black reusable shopping bag in the other after emerging from the store with her purchases.
The star was nicely made up for her outing, her eyes played up with just the right amount of kohl liner, her signature ruby red lipstick drawing attention to her naturally plump pout. She wore her newly cropped dark blonde tresses down in a soft wavy style, her pretty face framed by her sideswept fringe, while she accessorised with a thin gold headband. While her pal opted for her trademark girly glamour, Cara Delevingne also stuck with her signature style – which couldn’t have been more different.
The 21-year-old kept it casual in pyjama-like black and white checked pants, blue high-top sneakers, a white T-shirt and maroon jacket. The British supermodel wore her long blonde locks down in her usual sleek, straight style, partially obscuring her face, which appeared to be free of any make-up as she let her natural beauty shine. She carried a black handbag as well as a small white tote from Hôtel Le Bristol Paris. Meanwhile, sources have claimed to the New York Post’s Page Six that Taylor Swift parents, Scott and Andrea Swift, are allegedly ‘very hard to please’ and have become ‘incredibly difficult to deal with’, even playing a part in ‘edging out’ several members of staff at their daughter’s company, 13 Management, which they run.
Publicist Paula Erickson had worked for the star for almost seven years but quit in March – and it is claimed she only gave 60 days’ notice. A source told the publication: ‘Taylor Swift parents think they can do things better, and what makes things complicated is that they no longer live together.’ What’s more, Taylor Swift business managers Flood, Bumstead, McCready & McCarthy are also said to have quit last year. Sources told the New York Post that Scott and Andrea are currently living apart and don’t always get along. The insider added to the publication: ‘They are not on the same page and don’t even like to be in the same room.
Andrea requests that her husband not be present at meeting(s).’ Despite the claims, Taylor Swift manager Robert Allen is still working with the I Knew You Were Trouble hit maker after years together. Taylor Swift is known to be close to both her parents – though especially her mother, who often accompanies her on tour. The blonde beauty’s song The Best Day, which appears on her second studio album, Fearless, is about her close relationship with Andrea. Mail Online has contacted representatives of Taylor Swift 13 Management and her record label Big Machine for comment. -Dailymail
