Taylor Swift & Karlie Kloss went on a girls-only road trip to Big Sur: adorable?


I’m not a big fan of Karlie Kloss, not on a personal level (I don’t know much about her), but I just find her to be a forgettable model incapable of strong and diverse editorial looks. It didn’t even occur to me that Taylor Swift is trying to copy Karlie Kloss’s “look” because… well, Karlie doesn’t have a distinctive look. Anyway, Karlie and Taylor Swift are BFFs now and they took a road trip through California, stopping by beaches and Big Sur, etc, or as Swifty put it, “Beach, forests, cliffs, Northern California, sand, flower picking. Best road trip ever.” Their big road trip lasted, I believe, four days. It sounds fun. But I swear to God, in four days they totally morphed into each other. I can’t even tell who I’m looking at in these Instagram photos that Swifty and Karlie posted. That black-and-white closeup… Swifty is the one on the left? Is that her? *mind-boggled*

In case you think Karlie is a Dateline Predator for hanging with Swifty, just know this – Karlie is only 21 years old. She is three years YOUNGER than Swifty, who is currently 24. Swifty has been making lots of new friends recently – she’s been spending a lot of time with Lorde too. I kind of wonder if Swifty hasn’t been neglecting Selena Gomez in Selena’s time of need. Or maybe Swifty is just tired of Selena’s Bieber Dramz and wants Selena to figure it out on her own.

Also: I don’t know how long Karlie and Swifty have been friends. The first time they met each other, to my knowledge, was at last year’s Victoria’s Secret show where Swifty performed as the ladies walked the runway. Karlie patted Swifty’s butt on the catwalk and maybe their friendship blossomed from there.

    I think it’s cute and I love Taylor but this reminds me of a post where someone on this site called her a “collector”. Like she needs to be hanging out with relevant celebs all the time, like when’s the last time she hung out with Selena or Emma Stone? I dunno, I like her but I do feel like it’s important to her to always be seen with another famous face.

  2. lucy2 says:

    I feel bad for the 3rd person on the trip who never gets to be in any photos…

  3. Paige says:

    Cant stand either one of them. But Big Sur is the most beautiful place in the world….

  4. minime says:

    No shade in there. Looks like some great girl time. Seems like a wise thing to do, instead of jumping in the next “relationship”.

    In my early twenties me and my girlfriends would work the all summer and then take the last week of summer break for a road trip. There’s nothing cooler than a road trip with your girls
    Ahhh! Now I’m nostalgic :)

  5. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    This looks like a cool trip…..

  6. Zandy says:

    They look, like they having fun, good for them!

  7. Musi says:

    Personality alike. I’m not shocked. Lol @ Selenas bieber dramz. Celebrity friends stand the test of time?

  8. LAK says:

    …so I wasn’t seeing things. they really look alike.

  9. Adrien says:

    Karlie looks like Diane Lane here.

  10. Penny says:

    All her ‘friendships’ like this seem so fake to me. She has such a blatant pattern of latching onto a random famous girl (always less famous and wealthy than herself) for a couple of weeks (sometimes just a couple of days) taking lot’s of photographic evidence, acting like BFF’s…and then you never see them together again. It’s such an obvious PR move, trying to counteract all the boy-crazy stuff, but it’s having the opposite effect at this point. I’m just left wondering why she can’t seem to nail down anyone to play her friend for an extended period, and why she doesn’t seem to have any non-famous friends (not employees, which is what almost everyone she hangs out with is) who she can do things like this with.

    • Aurie says:

      I have to add she’s still friends with what’s her face….that girl she went to high school with and the song Fifteen is about….they’ve done things together throughout 2013.

      • Xantha says:

        Yes she’s still friends with Abigail but from what I can see, Abigail is pretty much her only non celeb friend. And for a while there she was BFF’s with Diana Argon to the point of where they were inseperable two years ago.

        And your point about her celeb friends being less famous and wealthy is something I noticed as well. I realized a while back that really none of her celeb friends can outshine her. I’m sure that’s deliberate on her part. People underestimate just how calculated she is because she hides her shrewd business attitude under modest clothing and a sugary sweet demeanor.

    • fairyvexed says:

      She’s going to hit thirty and be unmarried and it’ll be very “Single White Female” with one of her ‘friends.’ She creeps me out. I feel sorry for the guy she marries —-and divorces. She just strikes me as really really clingy.

      • LV says:

        ‘She’s going to hit thirty and be unmarried’
        Yep – so am I. Hopefully you and the rest of society can get comfortable with it! if not – sorry!

      • minime says:

        ahah that’s a bit of an unfortunate comment. We are not in the primitive age where women’s accomplishments in life should be measured by marriage and kids. Women, like men, have all kind of different aims and desires to be happy. The guy that marries her, assuming she wants to marry someone, will have plenty to read in advance to prepare himself. This girl has her life on the magazines since forever, so whoever decides to take that step takes it willingly.

      • We Are All Made of Stars says:

        No, but you must admit, as a single woman, that there are women who are single by choice and women who are basically single by force, i.e., they really, seriously want marriage or at least a long-term relationship, but their behavior and/or guy-picking skills basically ensure that they’ll never seal the deal.
        I’m single by choice, but used to occasionally club with women who were like this. Their clinginess and desperation did them no favors, and they were frequently quite judgmental of other women. I have no problem judging these types of chicks by their own measuring sticks.

      • fairyvexed says:

        I guess LE has managed to not read a single thing about Swiftie ever, because it’s not about roles for women, it’s how Swift gives off this incredibly creepy needy vibe. Whatever.

      • Caroline says:

        Your comment is rather ignorant. Tons of men remain unmarried by 30, why can’t women? Why should the end goal in life for women be getting married and having babies?

    • We Are All Made of Stars says:

      “She has such a blatant pattern of latching onto a random famous girl (always less famous and wealthy than herself)….”

      THIS. And the part about how fake it all is, and the other part about how she can’t find anyone to play her friend long-term…do they not have BFF bearding agencies in Hollyweird? And the part where all her “friends” are on her payroll, oh yeah……..

  11. fleur says:

    @Kaiser: actually, Karlie has some strong photoshoots where she looks way beyond her years. The first one that comes to mind is the one for Italian Vogue (I think) that she appeared completely naked and the magazine labeled her “the body” or something like that. That was a good one.

  12. TG says:

    If I were Karlie I wouldn’t post next to someone who is much prettier than me. I get the feeling Karlie and Swifty are trying to copy Michelle Rodriguez and Cara Delavigne. These pics look too contrived and since when did Karlie look like a lesbian?

  13. don't kill me i'm french says:

    maybe they’re in couple!

  14. Wren says:

    Oh, I love Big Sur! Such a gorgeous place.

    However my first thought was, “You can’t hike in those boots!” and half the magic of places like Big Sur is hiking through the redwoods. Sure, it’s pretty just off the road, but it’s even prettier when you head down a trail.

    So yeah, cute pics but I’d rather be camping instead of posing in my city clothes by some trees.

  15. Dawn says:

    Oh I think it is cute and some of my fondest memories are the girl trips I took during my youthful days of 18-23! Those trips were always so much fun! And boy do I envy those long legs in that picture where they are looking at the tree. That is it, I hope they are having a good time and meeting lots of fun guys as well.

  16. Lucy says:

    Sometimes Taylor gives me Regina George vibes…hopefully I’m wrong about that.

  17. Blackwood says:

    I don’t know anything about any of them, but as soon as I saw these pics the first thing I thought was “first time lesbian lovers”. Somehow the intimacy vibe is different from “BFFs being cute”. Either they’re dating, or Karlie wishes they were. She seems to be holding her in a possessive way, too intense for a friend, although Taylor doesn’t seem too uncomfortable either.
    Or maybe I just have a twisted mind.

    • littlestar says:

      I think some friends are definitely more comfortable than others at being “intimate” with each other. And by intimate, I mean holding hands, hugging, touching each other without it being sexual. With my two closest girlfriends, one has seen me naked many times (skinny dipping in hot tubs and helped me put on my wedding dress), and the other, sometimes we hold hands or link arms when walking together – hmmmm. I guess we are just plain old weird! Lol.

      • Annie says:

        I have no idea whether Taylor is a lesbian or not but something about this chick always strikes me as being “after something”. Perhaps she hooks up sexually with all these “BFF’s” or maybe she’s asexual and just likes the social status all these celebrity associations get her but either way everything about it seems rather calculated.

      • littlestar says:

        Annie, definitely agree that Taylor is always “after something”. She is a very shrewd and calculating woman in my opinion. Everything she does is done for some kind of purpose.

  18. littlestar says:

    This looks like so much fun! I would love to go on a girls road trip with one of my girlfriends, but, they are all mostly married with kids now so that is definitely out of the question lol.

    I was able to take a couple of big trips with my best friend when we were younger, but unfortunately we did not have a personal photographer following us around taking glamour shots of us :S.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I took a road trip up the California coast with my Mom a few years back (she has a super stressful job with cancer patients and I wanted to treat her). Being on the open road with someone you care about is such a great time! We road horses on Pebble Beach and passed a baby deer lying in the woods as we came back from the beach. It was so beautiful.

  19. poppy says:

    everything she does is so fake.
    how long each morning before the day’s activities did everyone have to wait around for TS’s hair and makeup to get done?
    how fun could it actually be hanging out or traveling with TS and her entourage of handlers, stylists, flunkies and psychophants?
    one last snark, i guess the pillow fight pictures didn’t make the grade?

  20. Lauren says:

    I know people like this, whose “friendships” play out like this. Fast and furious, friend for eternity it seems. Until it isn’t. It’s so weird to watch. Taylor Swift is all image. Look at the way she makes herself up to go to tap dance class. It’s all to do with being watched. I don’t know who Karlie is but Taylor is a strange one.

  21. serena says:

    Oh come on, you instanealy recognize Swifty from her bolts on and killer eyes (just joking obliviously). Other than that, I would be sick and tired of Bieber’s dramz too if I was Selena’s friend.. come on, just dump his ass FOR GOOD already and don’t wipe about it. Instead, celebrate.

  22. Shelby says:

    Oh brother…staging photos, “I’m having such a fantastic time with my girlfriend” This all looks so FAKE.

  23. Lark says:

    Cute. And they totally look related, like cousins or sisters.

  24. Abbicci says:

    The only thing I find interesting about Taylor Swift are her celebrity friendships.

    Do they text each other all the time?
    Do they go clothes shopping together?
    How pays for the shots in the bars?
    Do they go to bars?
    Who takes all the pictures?
    Do their handlers arrange these play dates?
    Does Goop call her with celebrity ‘ it girl’ advice?
    Does she tell them all how the boys break her heart or does she get all catty about dick size?
    Why so many jumping in the air pics?

    I bet is wasn’t a girls only trip, they just didn’t post any pics of the stinky boys, because it would ruin TAY’S GURL POWER 4EVA TOUR. Because she has to be selling something and she isn’t selling an album right now.

  25. Lauren says:

    I don’t feel so bad for Selena Gomez if Taylor is distancing herself and wants nothing to do with her Bieber drama. Selena did the same thing to Demi when Demi was having her breakdown/ went to rehab and finally confessed to having struggled with cutting and an eating disorder. Selena was nowhere to be found even though Demi and her were supposed to have been best friends since they were 5 years old. Taylor Swift didn’t like Demi for daring to hang out with Miley and so Demi was shunned by both girls. I think Selena is learning what comes around goes around.

  26. Emily C. says:

    No, not adorable. Completely and utterly fake.

  27. DiamondGirl says:

    I think it’s nice that there are girls of this age showing they can have fun without flashing their coochies or having mugshots of their DUIs published.

    Taylor has worked hard since her early teens and this is a pretty humble vacation for someone with her money.

    She could’ve gone to the Maldives…..lol

  28. Nudgie says:

    I don’t listen to Taylor’s music because it isn’t my ‘genre’ of things I like to listen to. That being said, the only things I know about her is what’s on blogs and the one thing I see constantly is that she is the Queen of Clingy. That and she refuses to ‘lose a fight.’ She will buy houses and friends to vanquish her ‘foes.’

    Pathetic. Why not write a song about yourself? Lots of material there…

  29. Maureen says:

    Taylor Swift has friends? Come on, there must be a catch.

  30. kitty-bye says:

    The past few times I have gone to Big Sur & other ones in that area there have been parts closed due to previous fires. :( I did go on an insane coastal mountain path that looked like it hadn’t been cleared or ran in ages with huge ruts and bushes that ate at all parts of me as I ran to get back before sunset. Beautiful.
