Inside Taylor Swift’s London night out with close circle of famous friends

Entertainment gossip and news from Newsweek’s network of contributors

Taylor Swift is always down (bad) for a night out with her famous pals.

Swift — who is currently tearing up the U.K. with her Eras Tour — was spotted in London Tuesday night, June 11, with a whole gaggle of her A-list besties, according to photos obtained by multiple outlets.

The “Maroon” singer stopped by Argentinean restaurant Casa Cruz, per the Daily Mail, clad in a black corset top, velvet pants, crimson red stilettos and a gray coat. She paired her Tortured Poets Department aesthetic with her signature red lip and a black, Midnights-esque choker.

Included in the singer’s entourage were longtime friends (and “No Body, No Crime” collaborators) HAIM, as well as Cara Delevingne, Kate Moss, Stella McCartney (whom she famously name-dropped in the Lover track “London Boy”) Phoebe Waller Bridge, Chrissie Hynde and Lena Dunham, who previously dated Swift’s longtime collaborator Jack Antonoff. (Dunham now lives in London with husband Luis Felber.)

Actor Andrew Scott — notably, Swift’s ex Joe Alwyn’s good friend — also joined in on the fun.

Scott, who still remains close with Swift despite her 2023 breakup with Alwyn, is thought to have inadvertently inspired the title of Swift’s latest album due to his “Tortured Man Club” group text with Alwyn and Paul Mescal. (“They were about to play these tortured characters, and I had played a tortured character in Fleabag. It wasn’t about our own characteristics!” Scott later explained to Variety.)

Swift, for her part, may have bid London farewell on TTPD, but the 14-time Grammy winner is slated to play three Eras shows in England’s capital beginning on June 21. After several headline-making shows in Edinburgh over the weekend, Swift starts her run in England on Thursday, June 13, in Liverpool.
