As if the Instagram video that Selena Gomez posted last week showing her and Taylor Swift frolicking together at the Met Ball in New York didn't convince you that the two were still besties, then Taylor's recent remarks to E! about her friend should put to rest any rumors that the two are estranged.

Asked by E! why her friendship with Selena is so special, Taylor said , "Just because it's been the longest one I think either of us had, really."  She explained, "When your life changes and you become thrust into this really strange whirlwind -- where what your life is is different from what other people think your life is, and your life is commented on and your life is written about and fictionalized and all that -- both of us have kind of stuck it out and hung in there through all the different changes we've gone through."

"Longevity is something you can find very precious and rare in friendships," she added.

Taylor was speaking to E! at an event to promote her partnership with Keds.   When the singer was asked about whether she feels pressure to look great every time she leaves her house, because she's considered to be a "style icon,"  she poked fun at herself.

 "Oh yeah," she joked, "It takes me months to plan outfits.  I put them on a chart, I dress them on mannequins, and I have, actually, an entire wing of my house that's dedicated to the planning and the plotting of me wearing different outfits. As a style icon, you have to take yourself very seriously."

All joking aside, Taylor tells E! that really, getting dressed isn't that big a deal.  "I decide what I'm gonna wear, like, five minutes before I walk out the door and I shop where most girls shop," she explains.  She says she likes Keds because they're so classic -- Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe both wore them, for example -- and dressing in that manner cuts down on embarrassment later.

Describing her style as "ladylike," Taylor explains, "I like to wear pearl earrings, I like red lips. I like things that are kinda classic staples because I figure if I stick to classics, I won't have as many cringe-worthy moments looking back 25 years from now at my decisions, style-wise."

While Taylor is friends with many top models, she says its some of her other celebrity pals who give her the best fashion advice and inspiration: Girls star Lena Dunham and New Girl star Zooey Deschanel.

"Lena always has really great websites, and shops at great stores, so she always tells me her newest obsession, whether it be a website, or a blog or a new store or something," Taylor reveals. "She's really good with that stuff.  And Zooey Deschanel is one of the most fashionable people I know."
