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.

Taylor Swift danced like no one was watching in the "Delicate" video, and now she's sharing some behind-the-scenes clips of her perfecting her not-so-perfect splits, kicks and twirls in rehearsal. The perfume ad sees a discontent young star break away from a fancy event, make amusing faces and then frantically dance around a gorgeous lobby.


EAGLE-eyed Taylor Swift fans claim to have discovered hidden references to her boyfriend in the music video for the new single Delicate. When she realizes her new invisibility, Swift begins to break out into silly dance moves.

They pointed out there appeared to be some similarities to a Kenzo perfume advert, directed by United States producer and actor Spike Jonze, which was released previous year.


Many users made the case by taking screen grabs of both the video and the short film ― and placing them side by side.

Set mostly in Los Angeles' Millennium Biltmore Hotel - built in 1923, it was the early home to the Oscars ceremony - the video also sees Taylor run through Metro Center, which is Los Angeles' downtown hub, and of course the Golden Gopher where she is finally seen again. "Like as a Taylor fan I'm saying it and not denying it", another person wrote.
