Olivia Benson — Taylor Swift's Cat, Not 'SVU' Detective — Models for Keds

Olivia Benson — Taylor Swift's cat, not Mariska Hargitay's detective character on "Law & Order: SVU" — is the new model for her pop star owner's "Taylor Swift for Keds" sneaker collection.

The line first debuted last year, but the latest addition "Champion Sneaky Cat" shoe just recently hit store shelves. It features a black sneaker with a feline's face printed on the backside.

"The black sneaks that Olivia cuddles up to in the photo feature drawings of a cat peeking out from the bottoms and have gold lettering down the back of the heel with the date '12-13-89' (which is Swift's birthday)," InStyle magazine noted.


"A gold heart-shaped charm monogrammed with the 'Shake It Off' singer’s initials also comes with the pair," InStyle continued. "Swift's cat is certainly showing the signs of a burgeoning star. Could this be the beginnings of a cat model rivalry between her and Karl Lagerfeld's super stylish cat, Choupette? Only time will tell."

Olivia Benson has long been a star on Swift's Instagram account, and the singer was recently photographed carrying the cat out and about in New York City in pictures that quickly went viral.

"The kitten freaks out about being put in the cat carrier," the 24-year-old told "Access Hollywood" last month at the iHeartRadio Music Festival. "So I was just like, 'Okay, all right, we're gonna just do this.'"

Swift said Olivia Benson seems to have an eye for the camera.

"What I thought was funny about those pictures is that, like, the cat is looking straight at the cameras," she said.

Swift's other cat, Meredith Grey, is named after Ellen Pompeo's character on "Grey's Anatomy."
