We already know Taylor Swift likes to get her fans excited through symbolism, so when she strutted onto the iHeartRadio Music Awards red carpet in Sophia Webster butterfly heels, which she then proceeded to post on Instagram, the pot had been stirred. Immediately, her followers connected the insect’s meaning to her potential new music (which she referenced in her speech).
Even though Taylor styled her shoes with a splashy sequined Rosa Bloom romper that retails for $246, her accessories were distracting enough. Many people brought up the snake Taylor wore in reference to her Reputation album throughout the tour (remember these Gucci boots and this Kate Spade New York backpack?). “So reputation was the snake motif now it’s a butterfly because Taylor has finally come out of her cocoon and become a beautiful butterfly full of love and light,” one user wrote.
Meanwhile, others speculated the footwear may signify a collaboration with Maren Morris, who also showed up to the event in a flashy look. Whatever the case, the Swifties are fully invested in Taylor’s delicate butterfly heels, and it’s plain to see why. Read on to digest the full Twitter moment, and pick up Taylor’s exact pair before they sell out.
