Taylor Swift's newest video from 2014's only platinum record, the exceptionally Swiftie 1989, is a decadent excerpt from the life of a madly wealthy set of young lovers. Set on an ornamented demense, reminiscent of the sprawling old money estates of Newport, the video follows the couple from romantic courtship to flaming demise.
Taylor and her exquisitely handsome partner are pictured in the most lavish of settings. Whether it's a horseback stroll through the mansion's hedge maze, a picnic on the lawn, private ballroom dancing, or a drive through the country side, the two are dressed to the nine hundreds.

Don't fuck with Taylor Swift, she will bring the mother fuckin' ruckus down on your car, your phone, your expensive clothes, and maybe even your life.
