For all the downsides there are to dating Taylor Swift, like chronic neck pain from constantly nodding “Yes, of course you’re right“, there seems to be one big benefit: your career gets a boost. Before hooking up with Taylor Swift, Joe Alwyn would have to book jobs based on his own name. But Taylor Swift’s boyfriend doesn’t have to work so hard anymore. Vanity Fair says that Joe Alwyn is now the face of Prada’s newest men’s campaign. Congratulations, Joe – I’m sure your neck is killing you, but just think of the exposure.
Joe’s Prada news comes just a few days before Taylor’s sixth album, Reputation, is scheduled to be released. A coincidence, I’m sure! Joe’s Prada campaign was shot in Milan for their spring 2018 collection. Here’s what Joe looks like in Prada, which is apparently a snobby Upper East Side version of Children of the Corn.
It’s now time to speculate exactly how Joe landed such a huge job. My guess is he had Taylor’s cat’s chauffeur drive him to the Prada office, where he walked in with “Gorgeous” cued up on a boom box, and announced “Hi, Joe Alwyn, but you might know me better as Taylor Swift’s boyfriend. According to Taylor, I’m very good looking. Look at my face. So when do I start?” Once Prada checked to make sure there were no conflicts with Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, Calvin Harris, and John Mayer, they threw Joe a suit and a can of Handsome Boy hairspray, and welcomed him to the team.
