Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce Had Quite the Weekend in Argentina
The football player travelled abroad to watch Swift perform at the first international stop on the Eras Tour — and there were too many viral moments to count.

There were some major developments in the Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce romance this weekend as the Chiefs player joined his superstar girlfriend on the Buenos Aires, Argentina stop of her Eras tour.
After the singer had to reschedule her Friday night concert due to extreme weather conditions, Kelce was seen watching Swift’s Saturday night show alongside her dad, Scott, in the concert’s VIP tent. Multiple fan photos and videos captured the Kansas City player’s cheerful and happy vibe throughout the evening — but nothing could have prepared Swifties, and Kelce, for a moment that was to come later in the show.
During her “Midnights” set, Swift made a coy lyric change to her song “Karma” that had everyone in the sold-out stadium surprised. Instead of singing, “Karma is the guy on the screen coming straight home to me” (which many fans feel was a reference to her now ex-boyfriend, actor Joe Alwyn), Swift sang, “Karma is the guy on the Chiefs coming straight home to me” — a clear shoutout to her new boo.
Of course, fans caught Kelce’s reaction in real time. The moment elicited a huge response from both the football player and Scott — who seemed to excitedly pat Kelce on the back as the two laughed along after hearing the new lyrics.

In response, Kelce blew Swift a kiss with a subtle wave as she wrapped up the song.
But if all that cuteness wasn’t enough, the most exhilarating moment for Swift, Kelce and Swifties happened right after the show ended. Immediately after taking her final bows, Swift ran straight off the stage and right into Kelce’s arms in a romcom moment. Of course, Swifties captured multiple angles of the sweet embrace, which have all gone viral on social media with millions of views each.

Some fans also noticed a small, yet important, detail of the couple’s off-stage interaction. After observing how Kelce was patiently waiting for Swift to greet him with his hands behind his back, Swifties theorized that the football player stood that way to purposefully give the singer total control of the situation.
With all eyes on them 24/7, the couple have to constantly be aware of how much PDA they’re willing to show. But, in that adorable Saturday night moment, Kelce’s respectful stance allowed Swift to decide how she would greet him in front of the cameras — which, ultimately, created the super cute, genuine moment that we all got to see.
Known for his usually eccentric style, Kelce dressed up for the big night in a multi-coloured, button-down shirt adorned with big floral details. He kept the rest of the look simple with blue trousers and a watch, yet it was the stack of friendship bracelets that he wore on his right wrist that really captured fans’ attention.
While Swift was mostly seen in her concert outfits all weekend, she did debut two new pink looks for the “Lover” era of the show. The first was an updated pink version of the crystal-embroidered Versace bodysuit that she opens the show in (which she paired with brand-new matching glittery pink Louboutin boots, of course). To match the new Versace look, Swift also donned a new blazer embellished with fuschia crystals over the costume as she performed her hit feminist anthem, “The Man.”
It can be hard to believe that the new looks, thrilling lyric change and heartwarming embrace all happened in just one weekend, but there really hasn’t been a dull “Tayvis” moment since rumours of their new romance were first heard last summer.
As Kelce travels back to the U.S. for football and Swift begins the international leg of her tour, no one is quite sure of what the near future holds for the new couple. But rest assured, we’ll be keeping an eye out for any new fashionable looks and PDA moments they choose to share with us.
Prior to their big Argentine weekend, Swift and Kelce, also commonly known as America’s new royal couple, made not one, but two stylish appearances in New York City in October — and between their sweet PDA and coordinating styles, it’s clear that sparks were flying.
The couple was first seen on the way to the Saturday Night Live after-party on October 14 after both Swift and Kelce each made surprise cameos during the show’s much-anticipated season premiere.

For the late-night outing, Swift donned a long plaid trench coat over an all-black outfit consisting of pleated trousers and a Versace satin corset top embellished with the designer’s trademark Medusa logo on its gold chain straps. For jewellery, the singer adorned her ears with a stack of studs and hoops along with a single gold chainlink necklace by Mazin Jewels.
To complete the look, she accessorized with black heeled sandals (which she was still shorter than Kelce in, much to the delight of Swifties everywhere) and a black braided-handle handbag. Her glam was signature Taylor Swift: blonde hair styled into a neat updo, signature cat eye and red lip.
Kelce, on the other hand, went for a slightly more colourful ensemble in a cream-coloured Jil Sander knit jacket that was embellished with embroidered birds. The football player complemented the jacket’s brown accent colour with matching leather pants and tied the look together with white sneakers.
Talk about hard-launching in style!
And if Saturday night’s look wasn’t enough, the couple seemingly swapped vibes for their second date night of the weekend on October 15.

Walking hand-in-hand during another outing in NYC, it was Swift’s turn to wear the more colourful and patterned ensemble.
Featuring a long-sleeve green and pink floral mesh top by Jean Paul Gaultier, a black leather miniskirt, a burgundy baguette bag and lace-up chunky heel booties, the “Anti-Hero” singer somehow managed to look both edgy and sweet.
But the biggest surprise of the ensemble was her beauty look. With her wavy hair was tucked backed, Swift debuted a rare makeup routine change, ditching the red lip and cat eye for a more bronze eyelid and light pink lip.
While Swift’s outfit was more dark and moody, Kelce did a complete style 180 from his date. The football player opted for an oversized look in a light cream-coloured corduroy button-down and pants set which he paired with squeaky clean white Nike sneakers. Kelce tied the couple’s image together with a black tee that seamlessly complemented Swift’s almost all-black look.
Beyond their fashionable ’fits, the new couple seemed to be all smiles throughout their busy weekend with reports revealing that they allegedly couldn’t keep their hands off each other during their dates. Fans have noticed this too, and have specifically noted the funny way in which Kelce seems to be holding Swift’s hand like it’s a football.

It seems like it was just yesterday that Kelce was trying to get Swift’s attention with the phone number-adorned friendship bracelet that he made for the singer. Well, thanks to the events of the last few weeks, it seems that the Kansas City Chiefs’ plan has worked out perfectly and we can’t wait to see where the happy couple’s “Love Story” goes next.
Hey Siri, play “You Belong With Me.” Fourteen years after Taylor Swift released her hit song, which references having a crush on her school’s popular football player, the singer accepted Kansas City Chiefs player Travis Kelce’s invitation to watch him play against the Chicago Bears at Arrowhead Stadium — and she brought her signature T-Swift style to the game.
After a series of romcom-like events, Swift basically broke the internet while cheering from Kelce’s family suite (alongside his mother, Donna) in a game day outfit decked out in the team’s signature red and white colours. She even included a swipe of her signature red lipstick, so you know it’s getting serious. (JK… or maybe not?)
Swift wore a white tank top and black denim shorts from Australian brand, KSUBI, as the base of her sporty ’fit. She then upgraded the look with pops of red including a crimson manicure and red, white and black New Balance 550 sneakers. The “Bejewelled” singer accessorized her football Sunday ensemble with gold and diamond jewellery, including a casual $14K necklace, from luxury jewellery brand Jared.

Naturally, the true star of the outfit was the alleged “exclusive” Kansas City Chiefs team jacket Swift wore, which fans speculate Kelce gave Swift to wear for the occasion — further fuelling rumours of their budding romance.
And real fans know that Swift is no stranger to relationship dressing. Who could forget Tom Hiddleston sporting an “I ♥ T.S.” white tank top while the couple were dating back in 2016? Other exes such as John Mayer, Taylor Lautner and Harry Styles have all been spotted wearing complementary outfits with Swift while they were together.
It seems like her *potential* new boyfriend has already hopped on this trend, too. Many fans were quick to point out that Kelce’s pre- and post-game outfit seemed like a classic Swift-approved Easter egg.
For his off-the-field Sunday look, Kelce wore a two-piece cream denim jacket and pants set with a painterly blue pattern. The KidSuper Studios outfit, which is aptly named the “1989 Bedroom Painting Set,” seems like a nod to Swift’s fifth studio album, “1989 (Taylor’s Version),” which she just so happens to be releasing next month. The football player accessorized the — allegedly — themed look with a stack of silver metal chain necklaces, including a 19-carat Cuban link piece, which were also from Jared. You know the saying: The couple that shops luxury together stays together!
Kelce’s apparent enthusiasm for Swift’s next album falls in line with how unapologetically interested he’s been in Swift — both on a romantic and fan level — in recent months.
After attending an Eras Tour concert back in July, Kelce explained how he tried (and failed) to give Swift a friendship bracelet with his number on it. Fast forward a few months later, and the football player publicly shared that he “threw the ball in her court” in regards to his game invitation to Swift, which she evidently took him up on. For non-football fans, this has been more exciting than Super Bowl Sunday! (Unless Rihanna‘s performing, of course.)

Swifties seem generally quite supportive of Kelce and Swift’s new romance, with fans cracking an abundance of jokes about how Swift has finally found a potential partner who not only matches her level of success, but is also significantly taller than her. (Swift is five feet 10 inches tall, which is teensy compared to Kelce’s six feet five inches. We love that for her.)
Although this was the duo’s first public outing, many fans are rooting for them to make it official, and with all eyes on them the entire game, the pair were even seen leaving the stadium in Kelce’s convertible, making for a very cinematic end to their evening. Who knew football could be so compelling?
