For the first time when illustrating a red carpet event, I've chosen not to draw my favourite looks from the event, opting rather to go with the girl squad of the worlds biggest it-girl of the moment: Taylor Swift.
Over the past couple of years Taylor Swift has gone from curly-haired country girl to show stopping superstar. This change can be seen through a development in her musical style, as well as in her seemingly endless accumulation of super-celeb friends. Swift has been growing her squad constantly, making connections with notable personalities from the film, music and modelling worlds. A significant number of these companions can be seen in her Bad Blood music video, released earlier this year.
It was for this video that Swift won her first 'Moonman' award for Video of the Year at this years MTV Video Music Awards, in addition to three other awards.
Many of Taylor's friends that were featured in the video accompanied her on the red carpet at the VMAs, and it was the photos of this incredible group of women that inspired my illustrations this year. Talk about an influential posse!
Hope you enjoyed this post, I'm working on some interesting collaborations and projects now, so will post about those soon!
