Taylor Swift sent the internet into a frenzy after seemingly channeling the late Princess Diana’s iconic ‘revenge dress’ on Thursday evening.
During her appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, the State Of Grace singer, 31, instantly drew comparisons to the beloved royal while rocking an off-the-shoulder minidress with a notch neckline and crystal embroidery.
As she promoted the rerecording of her 2012 heartbreak album Red, the 11-time Grammy’s resemble to the mother of Prince William was undeniable.

Despite their dresses’ striking similarities, Swift opted not to wear tights or a pearl choker, like the Princess of Wales did back at the 1994 Vanity Fair party.
The ‘revenge dress’ is one of Diana’s most talked about looks of all time, which she wore shortly after her ex Prince Charles admitted to cheating on her in an interview with Jonathan Dimbleby two years after they separated.
While Swifties were convinced the pop star was sending a message to ex Jake Gyllenhaal or Scooter Braun, Swift ultimately debunked fan theories.

When asked if the dress had a hidden meaning by Access Hollywood the next day, Swift replied: ‘Oh my god, this isn’t — I just liked the dress.’
‘I liked the black dress,’ the performer told the reporter at the All Too Well premiere at AMC Lincoln Square on Friday.
While she may not have been shading Gyllenhaal with her dress, Swift did not hold back about her heartbreak after their 2011 split in her new movie.

The 13-minute film, featuring new lyrics from the extended version of All Too Well, shed some light on how their nine-year age gap played a role in their breakup.
‘You said if we had been closer in age maybe it would have been fine / And that made me want to die,’ sings Swift, who has never officially confirmed that the song is about Gyllenhaal.
The 40-year-old actor reportedly dated the Cardigan singer from October to December 2010.
Other lyrics featured in the re-recording suggest that the breakup was particularly hard on Taylor.
Wow: Hours after its release, Swift expressed her gratitude to Sink and O’Brien for bringing her words to life
‘I can’t begin to express my gratitude to Sadie and Dylan for giving us everything they had in order to tell this story,’ she captioned a slideshow of photos from the film
‘They say all’s well that ends well but I’m in a new hell / Every time you double cross my mind,’ the lyrics read.
Though he may have been opposed to age-gap relationships at the time, Jake has changed his tune over the years.
The Donnie Darko star has been romantically linked to 25-year-old French model Jeanne Cadieu since late 2018, who is 15 years his junior.
In the offing: Now this Friday the 31-year-old will drop a new Taylor’s Version of Red with six songs she had written for the first version but decided not to include at the time
Along with the extended version of All Too Well, Taylor’s re-recording of Red includes six other unreleased songs.
A new review of the album in The Sun theorizes that one of the unearthed numbers, I Bet You Think About Me, is also about Jake.
The original version of the album had already contained multiple songs that were widely assumed to be about her breakup with Jake.

The review quotes the song: ‘You can’t help who you fall for, and you and I fell like an early spring snow. But reality crept in, you said we’re too different.’
Her lyrics accuse her unnamed love interest of having ‘laughed at my dreams’ and ‘rolled your eyes at my jokes.’
Taylor, whose ex Jake was by that point known for prestige films like Zodiac and Brokeback Mountain, taunts the subject of her song: ‘Mr. Superior Thinking, do you have all the space that you need?’
The singing sensation adds: ‘I don’t have to be your shrink to know that you’ll never be happy and I bet you think about me.’
