Few among us would be fooled by Taylor Swift’s girl-next-door good looks and amazingly awkward dance moves: There’s nothing basic about this girl boss. With sold-out concerts across the globe, Taylor's got to travel in comfort and style... and with friends in tow to keep her company. From Gigi Hadid’s fierce travel style to Selena Gomez’s Insta-worthy jump shots, here are seven things we’ve learned about private jet travel from Taylor and her jet-setting squad.
1. Pack your essentials (however extravagant they may be).
Karlie Kloss is no stranger to the jet-set life... and why would she? Her days as a Victoria's Secret Angel certainly kept her busy and made globe-trotting her way of everyday life. In between classes at NYU, Kloss is up, up, and away! Photo shoots, fashion week — you name it and she’s there. Plus, flying private kind of eliminates the whole carry-on versus checked bag debate.
2. Pamper your pets.
Taylor sure knows how to spoil her cats silly. When Dr. Meredith Grey and Detective Olivia Benson aren’t cuddling up to Taylor at her swanky NYC pad, they’re starring in her music videos and Instagrams. Her pampered pets also tag along on Taylor’s jet-set adventures. Would the real Swift family superstar please stand up?
3. Dress the part.
Gigi is constantly providing us with travel inspo, with her killer ensembles and bouncy tresses. Whether jetting off to Paris fashion week or vacationing with her pals in Dubai, Gigi doesn’t let anything cramp her style... including long-haul flights. When it comes to private jet fashion, Gigi’s got the whole casual-chic look down pat.
4. Revel in the ride.
As the most-followed person on Instagram, Selena has more than earned this epic #jumpshot. Even though few mere mortals can relate to her jet-set life, she finds creative ways to include all 82-plus million of her fans. Sure, Selena is technically flying private but by shouting out her destination, we’re all kind of along for the ride.
Taylor’s cats aren’t the only pals she spoils — her squad gets the VIP treatment, too. For the folks in economy, plane food isn’t exactly what dreams are made of... but the opposite is true of private planes. Gourmet meals, fine wines, and delectable desserts are just a few of the lavish offering one can expect. Now who was it who famously said, “Let them eat cake..."?
6. Get in the party spirit.
Cara Delevingne might strut the runways with her signature pout, but she takes herself a lot less seriously in real life. Even when she’s traveling for work, Cara’s not opposed to bringing a friend (or three) along for the ride. Talk about a girls' getaway! Despite her recent travel meltdown, she’s back in the party spirit. Cheers to that!
7. Stay grounded.
If there’s one thing Taylor’s 1989 World Tour has taught us, it’s that she is the absolute best to her fans. From private listening parties to handmade, customized Christmas gifts, Swift prefers to share the spotlight rather than shine alone. For evidence of the amazing interaction between Taylor and her fans, consider her sharing a post about this epic sweater a fan knitted and handed to Taylor's mom at a concert. See? Gratitude never goes out of style.
