Will Taylor Swift & Joe Alwyn make their red carpet debut at the Oscars?

Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn seen leaving Annabells Private Members Club

I really like the fact that so many of the biggest names in music opted out of the Grammys. Beyonce didn’t go (and she won Grammys on Sunday!), Lorde didn’t do, Ariana Grande boycotted for cause, and Taylor Swift didn’t even bother. Part of Taylor’s reasoning was that she’s been in London, working on Cats, so why would she even go to LA for the weekend? She was only nominated for a couple of Grammys, and she lost in those categories. Maybe she knew she was going to lose. Or maybe she’s already “over” Reputation and she’s on to her next version/brand.

So what is Taylor’s next version? I don’t know, but I suspect that Joe Alwyn will be a big part of it. Instead of heading to LA for the music industry’s biggest weekend, Taylor stayed in London and attended BAFTA events with her boyfriend Handsome Joe. They were photographed leaving BAFTA after-parties on Sunday night. Joe walked the carpet at the BAFTAs, but Taylor avoided it… and yet, she didn’t completely avoid everything. They’ve gotten to the point where they’re fine with being seen at private parties, and leaving those parties.

I really do wonder if Taylor will join Joe in LA on Oscars weekend. The Favourite will not be an “Oscar favorite,” but Joe will still be invited to all of the parties and such, so… what do you think? I’m thinking they won’t go to the Oscars together, but maybe the Vanity Fair Oscars party? Taylor has a long history at the VF Oscar party, and I would love it if she came out for this year’s party.

Cute couple Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn leaving the BAFTA party at Annabel's

Hilariously, Taylor wanted us to see her BAFTA dress, so she posted this photo on her Instagram. Only peasants show their fashion on a red carpet, I suppose.

    Margarine and wonder bread – I’m so excited I can hardly breathe.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Lol. Perfect description!

    • Ams says:

      LMAO Mrs peel (nice name by the way!!!) I was coming here to say they seem SO BORING but you covered it way better 😂

    • So cool says:

      Hah. I always remember to eat oatmeal on breakfast when I see him. And this to have 0 chemistry together. Such a fake “I’m so private” show. She needs to pay Dayly Fail for every article, because they put ” Private” “rare PDA”, “super low-key” in every headline.
      I think she finished with her private era and now we will she this two very often.
      And to correct article – she was nominated for only ONE Grammy and lost to Ariana. Snake hate to lost so her next era would be a like 1989 again. Oh poor us for seeing it

    • Mia4s says:

      LOL! You win @Mrs. Peel, you win.

      As to what version/brand she’s on to now? I think Lainey has it right: It’s the English years, like Madonna and GOOP had….before their relationships fell apart….anyway, moving on.

  2. Rose says:

    I don’t blame her for wanting to show off her dress ! She looks gorgeous and I love how happy she seems lately. I know she’s not liked here but I’m a huge fan , met her a few times and she’s just lovely .

    • So cool says:

      She spend money on that new boobs so she needs to show it. 🙂

      • Rose says:

        Oh please ! She’s pushing her arms together to make them look bigger . I’m not denying she got a boob job at one point and who ever did them did a great job but they aren’t new .

      • Veronica S. says:

        I think it’s more that the weight gain is working well to make them look less obvious. Frankly, the women who look best with implants aren’t bone-thin – you need a touch of fat around that area to keep them from looking hard and ill-proportioned. There are women out there who are naturally thin with larger breasts, but if you look at their bodies, they generally aren’t model thin. Slim, yes, but there’s usually softness to the frame.

    • S says:

      I have met her too and I adored her. She is so incredibly famous but somehow she makes everyone else in the room feel important, she’s amazing

    • virginfangirls says:

      Just lovely to you. But she writes songs with MAJOR hints so we know who they are about, and says some really awful things about peoples characters in those songs. And that is the opposite of lovely from where I’m from.

      • Kiki says:

        So you’re allowed to call her awful on the internet but she’s not allowed to call people awful in a song? Double standard?

      • virginfangirls says:

        Can you imagine, writing songs that bash others for a living and getting rich off it. Lovely.

    • Shannon Malcom says:

      I honestly like her too. I remember when she first came out (or at least when I first heard of her) I checked out her Myspace, and it was obvious she wrote it herself and it was so endearing to me. She talked about her brother and it was just cute. I kind of adore her in a little sister kind of way. I find her inoffensive at least, actually really talented at best. She doesn’t have the greatest singing voice, but it’s not awful, and she really does have a talent for lyrics. That being said, I love what she’s wearing here, and I’m starting to like her with this Joe guy. She seems a little more settled and a little more low-key, not so extra. And as far as “bashing people” in songs, omg, I’m gonna assume people who get mad about that don’t listen to pretty much any music at all. What is writing music FOR if not for the cathartic benefit of processing emotions? Have these people even heard of Eminem? Or is it okay to “bash” people if you’re male (btw, I’m a huge Em fan as well)

      • virginfangirls says:

        Your so vain is a great example of processing emotions through music while not making the target obvious.

  3. Torontoe says:

    I thought it was Gorgeous Joe since the song is about him.
    She looks beautiful in that dress, very unexpectedly curvaceous.

  4. Vexa says:

    Literally the only interesting thing about them is the fact that they look SO MUCH like brother and sister.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      just what I was thinking. they look like sibs.

    • horseandhound says:

      just because they’re both blonde. they’re not that similar.

      • Fleur says:

        It’s interesting that you don’t see it. To me they look like twins. Literal twins. It’s like she’s hooking up with the male version of herself. Similar eye shape, same cheekbones, even the nose is similar. I can’t imagine dating someone who looked that much like me. I think I’d be weirded out by it.

  5. BaronSamedi says:

    They look like siblings and have about as much chemistry between them.

  6. NeoCleo says:

    That blue coat she is wearing is gorgeous. I bet it’s cashmere.

  7. Lolly says:

    God that dress definitely shows off her implants, but they do look so much better now that she gained a bit of weight. She’s still thin, but nowhere near the bobble head look she had going on during her heyday. She’s so boring to me though, so I couldn’t care less what these two are planning.

    I love that coat, hate her hair.

  8. Kathryn says:

    Don’t really have a take/opinion on them as a couple. But I recently saw the Favourite – fine movie and I liked Joe A’s performance in it

  9. Nanny to the rescue says:

    Why would Joe be invited to the Oscars? He’s got a minor role nobody cared about in an otherwise highly nominated film. Not everybody in the cast gets to go.
    Unless they’ll invite him in hopes of Taylor being there? I hope he avoids this trap.

    • So cool says:

      Her PR push him like he was a leading actor in this movie. He had interviews in Vogue and Dior ads. He will be there because if her. He is know as Mr Swift.

    • Lightpurple says:

      The cast is usually invited

      • Nanny to the rescue says:

        Not the whole cast.
        I’ve seen the film, he’s fine in it, but he’s really just got a minor role.

    • Kebbie says:

      Of course he’ll be there. The Favourite was nominated for 10 Oscars. Joe Alwyn, Nicholas Hoult, and James Smith are part of the film’s core six that rehearsed together for weeks before they shot the movie. They will all be able to go if they choose to. Whether they’re allowed +1s is another matter.

      Obviously they’d make an exception for Joe if he said it was for Taylor Swift, but his invite is guaranteed regardless. The more nominations a film has, the more tickets the studio gets and The Favourite is tied for most.

  10. Louise177 says:

    Does anyone really care? It didn’t seem like anybody cared she wasn’t at the Grammys so I really don’t think anybody is waiting with bated breath to see if Taylor goes to the Oscars or parties. She’s still popular but I don’t think there’s still the same fandom.

  11. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    “…Saccharine, sugar, or salesmanship.”

  12. Tiffany says:

    First it was Camelot, now she is trying again with the British acting community.

    Swifty just wants to be apart of some group, doesn’t she?

    • Kiki says:

      I know right? Americans aren’t allowed to date the British. What a jerk!! #sarcasm

    • jammypants says:

      Honestly there’s nothing wrong with that. What I find disingenuous is how hard she hides the try hardness. Embrace your thirst Tay. You’re not fooling anyone. At the end of the day, it’s harmless fluff.

  13. Veronica S. says:

    I usually hate that color, but it does look nice on her. I do enjoy how the hem looks fluttering beneath the matching coat when she’s in motion.

  14. Case says:

    She looks like a Disney princess in that gown. So lovely.

    I doubt they’ll do the red carpet together — probably just after parties, unless they’re ready to drop the “private” schtick.

  15. lobstah says:

    Her boobs look really nice in that dress. Did she adjust her implants? They look less robotic.

    • Kebbie says:

      She’s put on at least 30 pounds since she first got them, I think they just look more natural because of that

  16. Tirralirra says:

    *sigh* Celebrities get fancy gowns for free from designers in exchange for wearing the gowns publicly on red carpets. The designers get publicity and the celebrities get free dresses (yes, stars are rich, but they’d all bankrupt themselves if they had to pay for the insane number of dresses they go through in an awards season).
    Taylor skipped the red carpet for the BAFTAs, so the dress designer, Stella McCartney, didn’t get any publicity from that. I would bet money that in the contract, Taylor specified that instead of walking the red carpet she would post a photo of herself in the dress on her Instagram. Notice that she tagged the designer in the post. That post wasn’t spontaneous or smarmy. It was Taylor ‘paying’ for her dress.
    I also wouldn’t be surprised if some designers turned Taylor down because she wasn’t going to be on the red carpet.

  17. Keaton says:

    I’m not a Swiftie but I’m kinda rooting for these two. I haven’t followed her or her career closely but it feels like her other relationships were shoved in my face alot more. This pairing feels more genuine.

    • so cool says:

      This is the most fake one. She needed to be “private” so she take this nobody. He always looks like he want to die when he is with her. Even on photos when they are private. Lets wait few months when she will has new album and will made Oscar tour for this Cats nonsens. SHe will be so extra like Gaga now 🙂

      • Erinn says:

        I honestly think that’s just his face. He’s not a smiley person. I probably look somewhat miserable a lot of the time people see me with my husband. But it’s a combination of resting bitch face, and chronic pain lol – I’m pretty darn in love, but I suppose I don’t always look it.

    • Alyse says:

      Agreed, not a fan of her, but I like them as a couple.

  18. KidV says:

    Love the coat!

    And I have to say Somewhat Decent Looking Joe cleans up well.

  19. horseandhound says:

    the coat is heavenly. looks so soft and feminine. she looks beautiful. he looks handsome. they look like a lovely couple. the favourite is splendid. taylor is a lovely person. so, all is great. I can’t see why people think she’s meh.
