Taylor Swift's 'Anti-Hero' music video features 'Fearless' tour dress

Few hours after releasing her new album, “Midnights,” Taylor Swift shared the project’s first music video — and it includes a clever cameo from one of her past tour costumes.

In the clip for lead single “Anti-Hero,” which Swift wrote and directed, she comes face to face with her biggest insecurities and anxieties in highly literal fashion, even spying on her own funeral in one dreamlike sequence.

Mike Birbiglia, John Early and Mary Elizabeth Ellis play Swift’s fictional adult kids bickering over her will in the scene, with the latter wearing a familiar-looking LBD to the event.

As the trio fight about who “[traded] on Mom’s name” the most, Early’s character tells Ellis’, “You’re literally wearing her clothes right now.”

“That’s from the ‘Fearless’ tour. 2009,” adds Birbiglia’s character of the bedazzled black number, which Swift did indeed wear onstage more than a decade ago.

It’s not the first time Swift’s resurrected past stage looks for a music video; who could forget the clip for 2017’s “Reputation” lead single, “Look What You Made Me Do,” which included dozens of her most iconic outfits from past musical eras, among them her “Red” ringmaster getup, her “Swan Lake” look from “Shake It Off,” her “You Belong With Me” pajamas and even her 2014 Met Gala gown.

Fans of the superstar’s videos (and her signature cryptic clue-dropping) can look forward to plenty more visuals in the “Midnights” era; ahead of the LP’s release, Swift shared a teaser trailer for the many videos to come, which will feature additional cameos from the likes of Laura Dern, Dita von Teese and the Haim sisters.

Here’s hoping for plenty more fashion Easter eggs, too.
