Joe Jonas‘s 007-themed 30th birthday bash has been widely covered. The middle Jonas Brother was joined by his wife, Sophie Turner, at the swanky affair at Cipriani in Manhattan over the weekend. In keeping with the James Bond theme, Turner looked every part the beautiful Bond girl in a plunging tuxedo-inspired gown by Alexandre Vauthier, complete with a built-in gold choker.
Coincidentally, famed Joe Jonas ex Taylor Swift also looked quite fetching in that very same gown in 2016 at the Vanity Fair Oscar party. Both women even opted for gold sandals, skipping the more obvious choice of classic black.
We are, however, left to wonder why Turner would deign to don the same dress as her new husband’s ex. Let’s look at a timeline, shall we? The only true Joe in the JoBros dated Swift from July to October 2008 before breaking up with her during a 27-second phone call. We’ll do the math for you, that’s three months, when Jonas was not yet 20 years old.
The pair’s quarter-of-a-year “relationship” and breakup resulted in three hit songs for Swift, the somewhat angry “Last Kiss” and “Forever and Always” followed by a healing melody, “Holy Ground,” according to Billboard. In other words, Swift went straight from anger to acceptance.

So, perhaps, Turner doesn’t even really consider Swift an ex. Three months of a college-age dalliance doesn’t really count as dating in the real world, so much as a random hookup that lasted too long.
Maybe she didn’t realize Swift had also worn the Vauthier. Maybe she just didn’t care and thought the gown looked too good to pass up. Maybe she thinks Swift got three songs out of three months with her then-teenage husband and she shouldn’t get solo rights on a good dress, too. We’re left with nothing but questions and this impactful side-by-side image.
