Behold: After some anticipation Taylor Swift has unleashed her latest
cinematic spectacle music video, Wildest Dreams. Dropped during tonight's VMAs, the video engages hottie of the moment, Scott Eastwood in a vintage-inspired love romp through in the African wilderness. Get it, wildest dreams? There's crop tops, high-waisted khakis, aggressive facial expressions, cat-eye sunglasses, and plenty of red lipstick. So aside from that dark brown wig and vague waft of "Summertime Sadness," it's pretty much standard Taylor and therefore destined to find its way into your head.
