Blake Lively wore Taylor Swift’s ring from I Bet You Think About Me ahead of the video’s premiere.

The 34-year-old actress directed the singer’s music video for the track from her latest album Red (Taylor’s Version) and a few days before the clip was released on Monday, it seems she had offered a hint as to what was in store.

Blake had shared a close up of her hand adorned with rings and wrote on Instagram: ‘My hand modeling career is really taking off.’

And when the video was released on Monday, Taylor could be seen wearing the same heart-shaped, diamond-outlined ruby ring that Blake wore in the Instagram photo.

The song features on Taylor’s re-recorded version of her 2012 album and the video featured various other callbacks to her past, including the same column dress she’d donned in her Red countdown clip a few weeks ago, the same monogrammed Cathy Waterman ring featured on the Red (Taylor’s Version) cover, and the top hat she wore for her 2012 MTV EMA performance of We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.

And at one point, the 31-year-old singer presented the bride in the clip a red gift box containing a red scarf, a reference to the lyrics to her other song All Too Well, which mentions her leaving such an accessory at the house of an ex-boyfriend’s sister.

Taylor had previously shared her excitement about working with The Sisterhood of Travelling Pants star Blake on the video.

She wrote on Instagram: ‘I finally got to work with the brilliant, brave, & wickedly funny @blakelively on her directorial debut. Join us as we raise a toast, and a little hell.’ 

Talking about the song’s meaning with Billboard, Taylor said: ‘We wanted this song to be like a comedic, tongue-in-cheek, funny, not caring what anyone thinks about you sort of breakup song because there are a lot of different types of heartbreak songs on Red — some of them are very sincere, some of them very stoic and heartbreaking and sad — we wanted this to be the moment where you’re like, “I don’t care about anything.’

The Grammy-winning star is re-recording her early albums after Scooter Braun purchased her former record label, Big Machine Label Group, for $300 million, and with it acquired the rights to her back catalogue.

Scooter’s Ithaca Holdings then sold the catalogue to Shamrock Holdings, without offering Taylor the chance to buy her masters.

The original album boasted 16 tracks, but Red (Taylor’s Version) is an epic 30-tracks long.
