Savannah Guthrie, the TODAY co-anchor, revealed her true Swiftie colors this Halloween, dressing up as her favorite singer, Taylor Swift. Complete with a long blonde wig, a glitzy pink and blue leotard, and Swift’s iconic red lipstick, Savannah stole the show. Adding to the charm, her 9-year-old daughter, Vale, joined her, wearing a sparkly gold skirt and cowboy boots. Together, they delivered an enchanting performance, dancing to Swift’s hit song, “Cruel Summer.”
Savannah couldn’t contain her excitement, saying, “To get to be on stage with my little girl was so fun. It’s a dream come true.”
The costume was no ordinary outfit; it was a custom-made bodysuit crafted by TODAY’s costume designer, Staci Greenbaum. The dazzling creation consisted of eight different fabrics adorned with sequins and rhinestones, making Savannah look like a true knockout.
Vale, following in her mother’s Swiftie footsteps, is also invested in Taylor Swift’s love life. The 12-time Grammy winner is currently dating Travis Kelce, the tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs. Savannah shared her daughter’s protective sentiment, recalling,
“My 9-year-old’s talking about it. She’s like, ‘Is it real, Mom? He better not break her heart.’”
Their Swift fandom doesn’t stop at costumes and discussions. In August, Savannah and Vale flew from New York City to Los Angeles to attend Taylor Swift’s sold-out Eras Tour. The mother-daughter duo sported outfits inspired by the Grammy-winning singer, with Vale even donning a collection of beaded friendship bracelets and a trendy French tip manicure.
Savannah’s enthusiasm for Taylor Swift’s music is not lost on her TODAY co-hosts, as Sheinelle Jones noted,
“You know, it’s such a sweet moment when you can go to a concert where the mom can like it, and the kids can like it, too.”
Savannah and her husband, Michael Feldman, also have a 6-year-old son named Charley. They have an approach to parenting that doesn’t involve “good cop” or “bad cop.
” Savannah believes in setting boundaries and, even if it means being perceived as “mean” by her kids, she knows it’s a necessary part of parenting.
Savannah’s Halloween transformation into Taylor Swift exemplifies her dedication to her favorite artist and the joy of sharing these moments with her daughter. It’s a testament to the power of music and family bonds that transcend generations.
