“When I was younger, I used to get questions like, ‘Where do you see yourself in 10 years?’ I’d try to answer. As I get older, I’m learning that wisdom is learning how dumb you are compared to how much you are going to know. I really had an amazing time with Cats. I think I loved the weirdness of it. I loved how I felt I’d never get another opportunity to be like this in my life.” – Taylor Swift
“I wanted to put a vintage Chanel jacket on the cover of Vogue because I feel that, with the global climate crisis, we all have to do what we can to contribute to the conversation around sustainability. Buying better and buying less is what I believe in: investing in clothes that will last a lifetime, pieces that can be passed down from generation to generation. Fashion shouldn’t feel disposable: the best clothes can be worn time and time again and have the quality of both design and craftsmanship to ensure their staying power – that’s how I’ve always dressed, it’s just that, because I only wear black, you can never tell. In that spirit, it was important to me to choose a classic item for Taylor, one that is everlasting – and that’s why I used a Chanel jacket from the Métiers d’art 2005/2006 collection. It’s the ultimate sign of luxury, it has never gone out of fashion, and it never will.” – Edward Enninful
“To herald a new decade, Taylor Swift fronts Vogue wearing archive Chanel – and looks effortlessly, endlessly modern in the process. Taylor, as anyone lucky enough to spend time with her will know, is one of the most positive, forward-thinking people you could ever wish to meet, and a dream cover star for this moment in time. Welcome to the ’20s!” – Edward Enninful
