Taylor Swift was spotted with a host of people at the 2024 Super Bowl, including Ice Spice and Blake Lively, but there was one face in her suite that caught the attention of fans all around: Ashley Avignone.
While the other celebrities were quickly identified, it might have taken some work to identify Ashley as Taylor's bestie if you're not a die-hard Swiftie. Ashley's name was the first mentioned in the secret message of Taylor's song 22, but there's still an air of mystery surrounding Taylor's best friend.
So, who is Ashley Avignone, and why was she chugging beers with Taylor Swift? Here's what we know about Taylor's best friend.
Who is Ashley Avignone?
Aside from being Taylor's best friend, Ashley is a stylist. According to Yahoo, she got her start as an assistant celebrity stylist, then appeared on Season 3 of The Rachel Zoe Project before she ended up on her own.
"I assisted the best stylists in the game for about six years, and when I decided to break out on my own, I was nervous,” she told Simply Inc. in a 2013 interview. “I was extremely lucky in finding representation right away. You have to believe in yourself, but it also helps when others believe in you, too.”
Not only is she a stylist, but Ashley specializes in interior design as well.
How long have Ashley Avignone and Taylor Swift been friends?
Ashley and Taylor have been friends for over 15 years, according to an Instagram post from Ashley in 2019.
At the time of her post, she was celebrating Taylor's 30th birthday and added that they had been friends for 11 years. Nearly six years later, the two are still friends and clearly know how to party it up together.
The two looked to have a great time at the Super Bowl and after as they celebrated Travis Kelce's win.
