New Video Series Presented By Keds® Explores Taylor Swift's Personal Style
LEXINGTON, Mass., May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Taylor Swift talks personal style, fashion inspiration, and beauty looks in a new video series called Keds Presents: Taylor Swift On Style. The seven-time Grammy winning, multi-platinum singer-songwriter and style icon sat down with fashion stylist Zanna Roberts Rassi for a colorful conversation covering Swift's style, favorite trends, tour wardrobe, her first footwear collection for Keds®, fan questions, and even how she creates her signature cat eye and red lip.
Swift also touches on how fashion can help people feel more confident, no matter the situation. "Being self-confident about what you're wearing has a great deal to do with how you carry yourself; and how you carry yourself has a great deal to do with how you are perceived," said Swift.
"This is the ultimate authentic glimpse into Taylor's personal style both on stage and off," said Rick Blackshaw, president, Keds®. "As with her music, Taylor has a clear direction and purpose with her approach to fashion, and hearing what personally inspires her choices is so fun to watch. We hope that Taylor's fans learn a little more about how being confident and having fun are the best ways to look and feel great."
Rassi is an award-winning fashion journalist, stylist and television host. When she isn't dressing some of today's biggest celebrities, she can be found interviewing them as a correspondent and contributor for several networks. Her fashion expertise combined with her down to earth styling approach is on display in coordinating Keds® style videos. Hosted by Rassi, the videos show girls how they can incorporate Keds® apparel and footwear collections into their wardrobe in fresh fun ways based on the season's hottest trends.
