Is Taylor Swift Entering Her Victorian, Goth Glam Era for ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ Album?

Whether you're a hard-core Swiftie or not, you can instantly picture Taylor Swift's signature makeup look in your head when the singer's name is mentioned. She typically opts for her long, tousled blonde hair with either blunt or curtain bangs. For makeup, Swift is a minimalist going for your-skin-but-better looks and a classic bold red lip.

For the artist's new album, The Tortured Poets Department, we see her take on a whole new vibe, both musically and visually. She shared a teaser on Instagram to announce the release date for the new music as well as a "Fortnight" music video and left us stunned.

In the post, we see Swift fully stepping out of her beauty comfort zone to embrace Victorian, goth makeup and fashion looks. A close-up of her face shows her rocking the controversial ressurenge of the '90's skinny brow accompanied by a dark, smoked-out overlined eye. The mega star also appears to be wearing a dark lipstick shade and her hair is wrapped around her head and tucked away with pins.

She's also wearing a choker with a single gem in the center and a long, flowing strapless dress with a high split. In various clips throughout the sneak peek, we see black Victorian-style gowns, typewriters, crowns and other indicators that Swift is taking us back to the mid-1800's.

We can't wait to see what other Victorian-era glam looks Swift gives us during her album rollout.
