The pop-country superstar was also spotted chatting up Jared Leto at the InStyle-Warner Bros. afterparty at the Beverly Hilton, just down the hall from where the main event took place.
Who knows what kept the conversation going, but surely part of it was a congratulations to the bun-and-beard-rocking Leto for his major win, best supporting actor in a motion picture for Dallas Buyers Club.
Our sources can't say whether Swift, 23, and Leto, 42, were meeting for the first time or not—but they looked pretty cozy when posing for pics together. (Also kind of badass? The statuesque Swift, who changed from her stunning red Carolina Herrera gown into a flirty little black number by Julien Macdonald for the afterparty, couldn't help but be taller in her heels.)
