A few weeks ago, the internet's Cuteness Scale nearly went through the roof when someone noticed that this colourful Taylor Swift look bore a striking similarity to a certain cartoon bear.
But it turns out, you can combine almost any coloured outfit with any coloured floppy hat, and you're already halfway to channeling your inner Paddington. And as Tumblr user dancingtotaylorsbeat noticed, Tay has been the biggest culprit of this.
I mean honestly, how can you rival a literal cuddly bear in cuteness? It almost seems evil.
She even has a summer version, for those times where she goes galavanting off to Hawaii with HAIM.
These are the three examples on the original Tumblr post, but you can bet that we found some more that prove this blatant style-stealing has been going on for YEARS.
I mean really
THIS IS A CONSPIRACY.
The first step to overcoming the problem is admitting it, of course, and Taylor confronted the truth behind her furry fashion icon when she reblogged the post:
"#AM I BECOMING PADDINGTON? IS PADDINGTON BECOMING ME?" she added in the tags. Personally we think there's room in the world for both Paddington AND Taylor; let's face it, you can never have too much cute.
It's okay Tay, we won't tell anyone. But when it comes to your next wardrobe overhaul, might we suggest an alternative?
