Seth Meyers: "I picture you in the locker room taking up a lot of space."

Last night, T-Swift tried to explain to Seth Meyers how she looks so darn good after she exercises.

The Late Night host presented the pop star with several paparazzi pictures of her exiting her gym (like the one on the right) in which Swift’s hair looks perfectly coiffed, her clothes immaculately pressed, her iconic red lipstick on her lips.

“I picture you in the locker room taking up a lot of space,” Meyers joked.

“I like to bring a change of clothes,” Swift said defensively. “I bring a hairbrush with me.”

Swift is clearly doing a bit more than running a brush through her hair. Having a body guard to help carry your things probably helps: most people are still a little flushed after leaving the gym, juggling purse, gym bag and water bottle. But even compared to other celebrities post-workout, she looks curiously flawless. Who can wear such high heels after a run? T-Swift can, that’s who.
