Crucial Hair Update

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Taylor Swift snagged a role in the film version of The Giver, which is likely close at heart for anyone who's made it through elementary school post-1993 and is premiering in August of this year. She appears (very, very briefly in the trailer on at 0:44), so while we may not be privy to T. Swift's acting chops quite yet, we do get to see what she looks like with dark hair. Spoiler: Pretty different. Feel free to click to enlarge the photo to the right for a decent look. [Harper's Bazaar]
