Grainy Photo of Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss 'Kissing' Will Satisfy Your Intense Shipping Needs

Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss have always been the touchy-feely type of best friends, leading many to ship the pair. But shit—kind of confirmed-ish shit—hit the fan at a The 1975 concert, where Kaylor danced passionately and talked closely or something. The model/singer duo is often shipped by super fans, and they play into the hopeful speculation, toying with everyone's emotions with Instagram posting, Twitter @-ing, hand-holding, and now potential kissing. Kaylor is baiting big time, but where did it all begin?


It all started at last year's Victoria's Secret show in which Tay performed and Karl walked. That was followed quickly by a suspiciously ad-like "best road trip ever," which was documented on Instagram:

California here we come, right back where we started from... ROAD TRIP!! @karliekloss

The friendship soon turned into "coastal" weekends together:

Hope you guys had a great weekend! Ours was suuuuper coastal. @karliekloss @amandygriffith

And then Taylor joined Karlie in New York, which means lots more quality time together:


The pair are close so a certain amount of normal friendship togetherness is expected:

But sometimes they just play into the fantasy hard on social media:

Cause we never go out of style, We never go out of style

Strong shipping evidence including mutual support and general good-time having:

And then of course we come to the "#confirmed" pic, which we can only assume was taken by a private investigator on the matter. It could just be close-talking, but the PI says otherwise:

May this satisfy your shipping needs for the time being.
