British Vogue’s new Editor-in-Chief, Edward Enninful, received such high praise for his first issue featuring model Adwoa Aboah on the cover that it seemed almost impossible to follow-up such a successful launch. But on Monday he did it again, debuting another surprising cover reveal with the biggest pop star on the planet, Taylor Swift.
The magazine tapped famed photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott to capture the star for its January 2018 issue and Enninful himself styled Swift’s 12-page shoot. According to the magazine, it “sets the precedent for #NewVogue’s exciting year ahead.”
Swift wore a red, ruffled, leather Saint Laurent minidress by Anthony Vaccarello for her cover shot, which may look familiar since Anja Rubik modeled the look on the spring/summer 2018 Paris runway in September.
Swift stuck to the new beauty look she’s been sporting since her “Look At What You Made Me Do” music video, with a vampy maroon lip and natural curls, with her bangs pinned away from her forehead.

Much like Enninful, all eyes will be on Swift and her evolving style when she embarks on her world tour in 2018, so her corresponding spread captures her “transformative fashion journey.”
