Taylor Swift Model Abercrombie and Fitch
Taylor Swift is in Abercrombie & Fitch’s 2003 advertising campaign is instantly recognisable after she become the global star we all know (and some love), but . Foreshadowing the schtick that would accompany her routine for the best part of the decade, Swift is the image of the brokenhearted country star in the shot.
Wiping her eye with a handkerchief, young Taylor stares forlornly into the lens with her guitar slung across her like a weapon about to be utilised.
Taylor Swift Model Abercrombie and Fitch. Exactly ten years later, Abercrombie & Fitch werre forced to remove a T-shirt commenting on Taylor’s love life after angered fans of the singer launched a petition claiming it was ‘childish’ and ‘hurtful’.
The T-shirt is branded with the words: ‘#more boyfriends than t.s.’, in reference to the 23-year-old singer’s changeable romantic status.
The shirt, a white tee screen-printed with the phrase “#more boyfriends than t.s.” caused a furor among Swift’s devoted fan base, who started a grassroots campaign of sorts to have the shirt removed from store shelves. One fan started a petition on Change.org that, as of this post, had 172 signatures. Another fan posted a video to YouTube encouraging her fellow Swifties — as the singer’s fans are called — to call into the brand’s public relations hotline and complain about the shirt.
It must have worked. The current outgoing message says, “Thank you for calling Abercrombie & Fitch public relations. If you are calling regarding the Taylor Swift t-shirt, please note this is no longer available.” Taylor Swift Model Abercrombie and Fitch
