Tom Hiddleston’s Love for Taylor Swift Might Have Cost Him a Job with Armani
Tom Hiddleston will not be the new face of Armani.
It appears as though the actor’s love for Taylor Swift has cost him an important job. The Italian brand — the same one Calvin Harris modeled for last year — has reportedly cut him out of the running to front their winter underwear collection. Sources say Armani has pulled the plug on the contract due to the “embarrassing” public display of affection between him and Swift.
“Tom was on the shortlist as they examined who could take over from Calvin. Obviously, with Tom now being Taylor’s other half and the Calvin past deal, it would generate huge media coverage and headlines,” a US fashion insider told the Mirror UK.
“But Armani see themselves as classier than that and think that a rising sports star may suit their current needs better. Armani would hate to be seen as getting PR for their brand by riding on Swift’s coat tails, so Tom will not get the job,” the source added.
