We all certainly remember Taylor Swift ‘standing in a nice dress’ with the slew of Arab designers she championed throughout the Eras tour. Now, this exquisite sartorial dream (which has featured the likes of Elie Saab, Zuhair Murad, and Yousaf Akbar) can celebrate the addition of one more globally-loved name from the region: Reem Acra.
Earlier this week, the Lebanese couturier took to Instagram to share images of the American pop star in a dreamy lilac number from her label. The tulle gown was chosen for the cover of her latest album, Speak Now (Taylor’s Version). Having debuted at the top of the Billboard 200, the album has earned Swift the honor of being the first woman, and third artist across genders, to have four albums chart simultaneously in the Top 10. The designer thanked the record-breaking artist in the post, “Our dress as featured on ‘Speak Now (Taylor’s Version).’ Thank you, Taylor Swift.”
The dress is likely one of Swift’s signature easter eggs. As avid fans of the 33-year-old artist will remember, it was a Reem Acra dress that she wore for the original Speak Now shoot more than a decade ago. The now iconic purple dress is arguably one of Swift’s most recognizable looks, and was also part of Reem Acra’s spring 2007 collection. “I was thrilled, to say the least,” Acra told Page Six. “It is a big honor to see her in my creation 13 years later.”
