Taylor Swift Spends an Hour Putting on Makeup After the Gym for Paparazzi: Report
For months now, Taylor Swift has pulled off impeccable street style in New York City, with the most flawless looks inexplicably pegged to her trips to the gym.
Say what? As has been exhaustively covered, the "Mean" singer, 24, always, always has perfect hair and makeup while heading into and out of the gym, putting her fellow gym rats (including BFF Karlie Kloss) to shame for wearing plain ole gym attire and a ponytail.
According to a report in the New York Daily News, Swift dedicates almost as much time to her post-workout primp as she does to her training session. "She spends an hour in the locker room post-workout so she can look flawless for the photographers who follow her," a source told the paper. Her routine pays off as the "Red" singer has been heralded for her stylish ensembles, including short skirts and crop tops, better to show off her svelte figure.
Swift has been training with Justin Gelband, who's responsible for many Victoria's Secret models, according to the Daily News. "Karlie turned her on to this gym a few months ago, and when Taylor's in New York, she goes daily," the source told the paper, adding that she comes every afternoon at the same time.
In addition to her daily visits to the gym while in Manhattan, Swift also penned an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal in early July where she opined on the state of the music industry, her bond with fans and the lack of autograph requests she receives. "I haven't been asked for an autograph since the invention of the iPhone with a front-facing camera," she wrote. "The only memento 'kids these days' want is a selfie. It's part of the new currency, which seems to be 'how many followers you have on Instagram.'"
