Taylor Swift’s Missing Scarf Mystery Resolved


Most people are familiar with the scarf —the red one that Taylor Swift allegedly left at the sister of a previous love interest.

Maggie Gyllenhaal can stop looking now that Swift has suggested the notorious accessory might not have even existed.

Fans have been speculating about the location of the lost object.

It appears prominently in the singer's well-liked 2012 ballad "All Too Well," which was supposedly inspired by her brief relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal.

Swift made a rare reference to the scarf on Friday night while making performance at the Toronto International Film Festival.

She said, “Basically, the scarf is a metaphor, and we turned it red because red is a very important colour in this album, which is called ‘Red’”

With the publication of "Red (Taylor's Version)" in November, interest in the scarf quest was rekindled.

A new 10-minute version of "All Too Well" as well as a short film depicting the song's central unhappy relationship was included on the album that was re-recorded.

The movie, which stars Sadie Sink and Dylan O'Brien, was promoted at the festival by Swift, who also wrote and directed it.
