Taylor Swift totally lets loose, and nobody's looking, in new 'Delicate' video

Kenzo on Taylor Swift's controversial video: 'It's hard to stay fresh'

Or does it? Swift explores this possibility in the playful and charming new video for "Delicate", which debuted at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards on March 11. While many fans praised the singer online for the new clip, others couldn't help but notice striking similarities between the video and the two-year-old Kenzo World advertisement, which featured actress Margaret Qualley acting out in a similar manner after escaping a fancy gala.

She eventually becomes invisible and is able to let go, dancing through the foyer of a hotel, across the reception desk, and out into the rain as she makes her way to the one person who can see her for herself.

So it's no surprise that her new video for Delicate also has a few moments which fans have now decoded and believe offer more clues as to the meaning behind the song, one of the best on Reputation, if we do say so ourselves.

Social media users were quick to point out the similarities.

In Swift's video, the pop star, who becomes bored with being interviewed by the press, also makes amusing faces in the mirror before realizing she is invisible.

Among the hidden Easter Eggs, fans claim the singer spells out the letters "J-O-E" with her dance moves, as well as a sign for "Joe's Deli" in the background of one shot. Another said, "Taylor Swifts Delicate MV is a complete rip off of Spike Jonze's Kenzo advert with Margaret Qualley".

According to Page Six, once the video was released, a "top fashion PR pro who's worked with Kenzo playfully posted, "Listen Tay, I feel you".
