Taylor Swift goes through a slew of cute, retro-style outfits in her video for ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ — and it wasn’t easy to transform from new look to the next.

 

Swift had to strip pretty much in front of everyone on set, but luckily, her outfits allowed her to do so without showing the goods. “All my clothes were put together with Velcro and snaps so that I could have three different outfits layered on top of each other,” Swift revealed to MTV. That explains why she starts the clip in flannel PJs that cover her from head to toe!

“The costume changes were really hectic,” she continued. “[We did them ] in real time; it was crazy. At one point, I had a breaking point. ‘I can’t do five costume changes, there’s not enough time!’ but we ended up being able to do it,” she gushed. Still, it wasn’t too easy for someone famously wholesome to deal with. She told Sway, “All modesty had to go out the window.”

The ‘Red’ singer wasn’t the only one with wardrobe issues. Her band was taken by surprise by their animal costumes, and they weren’t too amused by them at first. “All of the sudden, they wheel in their costume rack, full of animal costumes, and they were so mad,” Swift giggled. “It was hilarious, they were so angry. It took a couple hours, but they finally embraced it,” she assured. “It ended up being absolutely hilarious; they are really funny in that video. They owned it.”
