Taylor Swift's Step-by-Step Transformation For "The Man" Video Is Truly Wild to Watch

Despite fully expecting Taylor Swift to pop up in "The Man" music video with a more masculine look, I still wasn't 100-percent positive the video's star was actually her the first time watched it — well, until the big reveal at the end, that is. The song addresses issues of male privilege, and with the help of some heavy prosthetics and makeup, the singer transformed herself into "the man" for the music video in order to parody the double standards faced by women in our culture.

I spent most of my viewing time marveling at Taylor's look, pausing the clip and squinting at my phone screen. Luckily, at the end of the video, we get a glimpse of the work that went into her very Wolf of Wall Street-esque style. Prosthetics, color contacts, a wig, and fake facial hair contributed to the overall effect, and even diehard Swifties found themselves doing a double take.
