“Red lipstick is a popular look for many celebrities, but it’s rare that we see Taylor Swift without her trademark lips.

“From matte to gloss, red lipstick is a staple look all-year-round, especially during the festive season.”

“This trend is likely to continue throughout the day due to the release of the long-awaited ‘All Too Well’ short film, starring Sadie Sink and Dylan O’Brien, which is being released at midnight tonight.”

On the album cover, the 'I Knew You Were Trouble' singer wears her characteristic pillar box red lip.

Taylor is wearing a $7,390 (aver R116 00) diamond 'Love' ring on the cover, in addition to her strong lipstick.

Fans may now purchase a low-cost version of the brilliant sparkler.

The 'Shake It Off' hitmaker collaborated with jeweller Cathy Waterman and her daughter, Claire Winter Kislinger, on a duplicate of the pricy piece - which she handed to the pop legend while working on the record in 2011.

In exchange, the Grammy winner performed new recordings of songs from Taylor's landmark LP to the mother-daughter combination.

In a statement, Cathy said: “If I could, I would tattoo my love on all my people, and creating the ‘Love’ ring was the closest I could get to that idea.

“It was wonderful that Taylor spent time with us, cooking and baking pies, and playing her new music, which made us feel a part of the process. It warrants being an unofficial member of the family.”

Taylor’s friend, Claire, added: “Our friendship has always been really important to me. Taylor is such a steady, reliable friend. The collaboration is significant to me personally and for the brand as well. My mom has always said that the people she wants to be associated with most are talented, strong, hard-working women. Check. Check. Check.”

The $45 (R708) version is made from silver-plated metal and cubic zirconia.
