Prepare for Best of Austin With Taylor Swift

Tay-Tay shows off the Best of Austin award categories by way of the gif!

Best of Austin 2015 is hitting the stands (and internets) on September 10! Are you ready? Get to know the award categories with help from Chronicle office crush Taylor Swift! (We call her Tay-Tay, because she’s not around to tell us not to.) So enjoy, and get ready for the onslaught of amazing local places and people that deserve recognition.


Trying something on or just saying “Girls, we need to go SHOPPING!”


Are you entertained?!?! I don’t knooooowwww???

Politics and Personalities

It's cat vs. Swift in a war of personality.

Architecture and Lodging

Look at that staircase, look at that molding *architecture*

Arts and Culture

As if you needed proof that Taylor is both arty and cultured.


Kids today with their photobombing and whathaveyou.


Looking good here, now if only she was telling us about the news and weather in the morning.


We know…one of the pure and true loves in life.

Outdoor Recreation

Not sure what’s happening here, but it’s clear that Taylor really understands how to do the outdoors.


Everything tastes better when it's served on a big platter held by Tay-Tay.

You can also see this post and other gifsets on the Austin Chronicle's Tumblr page, if that's what you're into.

More BoA gif guides to follow in the coming weeks.
