    You'd be surprised how much money you can make in a relatively short amount of time with the right type of investments and if she invests aggressively. That in addition to buying and selling stocks at the right time and market share can give her just enough money to support her lifestyle. I'm not saying that her boyfriend doesn't buy her things - he obviously does - but her whole life isn't financially dependent on him.

    I actually don't think most people know given how often someone comes out and says something along the lines of "she's living off of her boyfriend" or "her boyfriend buys her everything she owns". 
    And what I had acknowledged quite clearly that yes, she does spend frivolously but my point is that she might have more money saved up than we think she does, which would be the financially savvy part.

    @Olivercat - Investment banking is realistic to do and people who are in mid-late twenties generally start it when they start thinking about doing it when they begin their retirement savings plan. Most financial advisors at your average bank provide you with options for investment savings like mutual funds. Also, stocks are a lot more accessible for people to get into these days, and I am sure that while people in her life can give her advice (e.g. her boyfriend or her dad), she's ultimately making the decision for herself on which stocks she wants to purchase and invest in.

    Taylor's money
    Since the issue of how Taylor seems to earn money or how she lives off of her boyfriend comes up multiple times, I've decided to de-lurk and comment on this. I ain't white-knighting, but the answer to how she makes money has been in this forum the entire time.
    While she was in HK in 2012 she did this interview: http://hk.apple.nextmedia.com/financeestate/art/20120903/18006644 At about 0:55, Taylor says, "I think money sitting in the bank doesn't do much." The voiceover/interviewer in Cantonese follows up by saying that she does investments and buys stocks in American companies. In this more recent vlog: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkuv4bTB-P0 Taylor talks about her investment banking at the 2:05 mark. She explains that she invested a lot of her modelling income at the time and those investments have now reached maturity. Based on these clips, Taylor is far more financially savvy than most people think she is (despite her frivolous spending).
    So to summarize: she buys stocks, has investment funds, made money from modelling and makes money from YouTube. I think we can all confidently say that she has her own money. Sure, her boyfriend might be loaded, but Taylor isn't just living off of him either.
