Taylor Swift is well known for her love of leg-flashing and short dresses, so we knew we were in for a treat on her album release day.

And we weren’t disappointed.

The leggy singer showed off her best ᴀssets outside the Good Morning America studios today, after releasing her album 1989.

Wearing a short blue skirt and matching top, the blonde beauty stunned for a day of promotional events.

And it’s a big day, because she’s also been named New York City’s Global Welcome Ambᴀssador.

The 24-year-old singer has joined forces with NYC

Speaking about Taylor – who moved to New York City earlier this year – Fred Dixon, president and CEO of NYC

“We are pleased to work with Taylor Swift to welcome visitors from around the world, as she was welcomed this year, and couldn’t have asked for a better synergy between Taylor and NYC

As part of the new initiative, Taylor will see by performing on TV show Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin Eve with Ryan Seacrest’, which will broadcast live from Times Square on ABC on New Year’s Eve.

Taylor will also feature in videos on website www.nycgo.com in which she will explain what her favourite things to do in the city are. The website will also source content from other people’s experiences in the city if they use the hashtag

The campaign will also be promoted in messaging surrounding the launch of the blonde beauty’s fifth studio album ‘1989’, which was released today
