Taylor Swift can’t come to the phone right now. Why? Oh, ‘cause she’s at the Chiefs game.
On January 28, Swift arrived at Maryland’s M&T Bank Stadium for the Kansas City Chief’s game against the Baltimore Ravens, which will decide which team moves on to the 2024 Super Bowl in Las Vegas. The 33-year-old pop star was wearing a red sweater as a nod to her boyfriend’s team, but went with a Reputation-coded black jacket on top, pulling the look with her signature red lip.
This outfit didn’t scream Reputation as loudly as a crushed velvet green dress and snake-patterned boots, but her hair was the final touch that really evoked her sixth studio album. She wore her hair down in loose curls, letting her bangs (which are typically styled straight) fall in waves, much like her hair in the 2017 music video for “Look What You Made Me Do.”
Taylor Swift wasn’t the only channeling Swift’s famous revenge album ahead of this week’s game. On January 27, Travis Kelce was filmed getting off the plane in Baltimore wearing an all-black ‘fit with a silver statement chain. “Trav, when does Rep drop 🖤 🐍,” one fan commented on the Chiefs’ TikTok post.
One day earlier, Kelce waved off criticism about his “off-field life” and relationship with Swift. “It’s just outside noise, dealing with others’ perspectives of things,” Kelce said during a Chiefs press conference. “You hear the media throughout the year if we’re not having success—you know, maybe throw it out there that maybe I wasn’t focused or that the team isn’t focussed on certain things. If you’re in this building, you know exactly what’s going on, so you got to compartmentalize what you’re hearing and make sure you’re staying on task and giving everybody in that building and on that team the right perception when you walk in that building.”
At the end of the day, Kelce says he and Swift are not worried about what anyone else says. “As long as we’re happy, we can’t listen to anything that’s outside noise,” he said. “That’s all that matters.”
