Taylor Swift covers Harper’s Bazaar December 2012

Taylor Swift Harper's Bazaar Cover

Taylor Swift works the cover of Harper’s Bazaar December 2012 showing off a fresh fringe and her famous baby blues. While I am not a huge fan of the chosen cover image, I absolutely adore the accompanying images found within the magazine. Taylor could easily be mistaken for a super model with those neverending legs and glossier-than-humanly possible golden locks. Taylor’s interview for Harper’s Bazaar is every bit as juicy as the pictures. Here’s a sneak peek at some juicy topics. Find the rest within the December issue, hitting newstands on November 27th.

On wearing dresses: “I’m in a predicament where I
can’t wear a dress twice or else it’s pointed out in magazines,”
she says. “So
unfortunately I have to shop for dresses all the time.” “There’s just something
so feminine about a dress,”
she says. “Whether it’s a summertime dress
that makes me feel carefree, an evening cocktail dress that makes me feel fancy
or a vintage dress that makes me feel like a ’50s housewife — which I enjoy
feeling like, for some reason — I just really like dresses.”

On dating: “It needs to be equal. If I feel
too much like I’m wearing the pants, I start to feel uncomfortable and then we
break up.”
Relationships are “the ultimate collaboration,” she adds, but
sometimes “it’s wonderful to hand over the reins to your boyfriend when you
control so much of these big, high-pressure decisions, you know? That is a huge
defining factor in who you choose to be with.”

On relationships as a source of inspiration for
her music: “Some combinations of people are toxic, you know? You have to
find the right one that isn’t just going to explode into fiery ash and
destruction.” “Despite all of that and how unpleasant it is, as a writer you
get a lot from it. It’s a crazy justification system. You know that guy you
really wish you could erase from your memory? But then the answer is track six,
eight, 12, and 13.”

On being friends with celebrities including
Emma Stone and Selena Gomez: “We never talk about fashion, about career,
about our ambitions or our projects,”
she says of her pals. “We just
talk about relationships, feelings, love, and boys.”
