Okay, this one is pretty obvious but the red scarf Taylor gifts to the bride at the wedding is the exact same scarf from the All Too Well song and short film.
Fans have theorized that the red scarf in this video is meant to be Taylor warning the bride about the groom (kind of like a red flag), while others think it’s her showing she’s moved on form the relationship.
We can’t say exactly what the scarf means in this video, but fans have a very interesting theory about what it represents in the lyrics of All Too Well.
A growing number of Swifties claim the scarf is a metaphor for virginity in that track, given that the narrator (kind of) gives it to a boyfriend and he still has it long after they split. Or maybe it’s just a scarf… who knows?
If you look closely, you’ll spot not one but two easter eggs on Taylor’s fingers in the video; the Red ring and a red ring. Yes, they’re different.
THE Red ring is the same design she wore for the cover of the re-released album, which is supposedly a nod to a similar ring she wore while writing the original album, only that one said “Love”.
The second ring is a large, jewelled ring that features what looks like a massive ruby in the shape of a heart in the centre. If it looks familiar, that’s because Blake Lively posted an Instagram photo wearing the exact same ring last week, when she attended an event in New York.
Given that Blake actually wrote and directed the video, we shouldn’t be surprised that she went home with some Taylor merch.
It may just look like a regular wedding cake, but the multi-tiered masterpiece in the video is packed with hidden references and meanings.
If you look closely at the icing designs on the cake, you’ll spot the numbers 13, Taylor’s favourite number, and 26, which is I Bet You Think About Me’s track number on the Red re-release. But could it also be a hint about which album she’ll drop next? Fans theorized that because Taylor was 26 when she released the 1989 album, this could be a clue she plans to re-record it next.
They also noticed that the cake featured the Red and “Love” ring designs, as well as some birds one fan claimed looked like the bird on the shirt Taylor wore on the cover of the 1989 album. Okay, they may be reaching there… unless? There are similar birds on the table decorations too.
Taylor also destroyed a white cake in her video for Blank Space, which was from the 1989 era. The evidence is really starting to pile up.
There’s also a hint that Taylor may be planning another collab with Ed Sheeran on his album =, as she draws a similar symbol on the cake when she first eats some icing off it. That could also be a coincidence, but the pair have worked together a few times before so we wouldn’t put it past her!
We all recognize THAT hat! During her Red era, Taylor performed at the 2012 Grammys in an incredible bejewelled ringleader costume, complete with a top hat encrusted in red sparkling gems. Now, this may not be the EXACT same hat, but it looks almost identical and we’re totally counting this as a fun throwback to the OG Red era.
Taylor included a cute reference to the track Starlight in the credits, with a line reading: “And to all of our families who supported us as we dream impossible things.”
If that sounds super familiar, it’s because it’s a reference to the line: “He was tryna to skip rocks on the ocean saying to me / ‘Don’t you see the starlight, starlight / Don’t you dream impossible things’”
