THE CATS’ WHISKERS

Daily Express - - News - By Mark Reynolds

TAY­LOR Swift and Idris Elba must be fe­line frisky as they strike a pose at the Cats world pre­miere.

The US singer and the Bri­tish Luther star looked the cat’s whiskers at the star-stud­ded event in New York.

Tay­lor, 30, daz­zled in a strap­less red gown while Idris, 47, wore a vel­vetcol­lared black coat and blue polo neck.

The Shake It Off singer plays Bom­balu­rina and Elba is Ma­cav­ity in the film, based on the mu­si­cal by An­drew Lloyd Web­ber from po­ems by T. S. Eliot.

Ear­lier Tay­lor held hands with ac­tor boyfriend Joe Al­wyn, 28, on the red car­pet

One guest at the pre­miere said: “They looked very happy to­gether and were clearly hav­ing fun.

“De­spite heavy rain, Tay­lor re­ally worked the crowd and posed for self­ies with a num­ber of fans.”

The star showed off her floor-length gown by de­signer Os­car de la Renta while wav­ing to the crowd.

She also shared a rear view of her out­fit to In­sta­gram, cap­tion­ing it

“Claws out, kit­ties.”

It has been a good week for the pop su­per­star.

As well as be­ing named a head­liner at next sum­mer’s Glas­ton­bury

Fes­ti­val, she was also nom­i­nated for a Golden Globe along­side Lord Lloyd-Web­ber for the song they wrote for the film Beau­ti­ful Ghosts. Tay­lor and Lord Lloyd-Web­ber posed for photos to­gether, be­low, and were said to be over the moon.

She wrote on so­cial me­dia fol­low­ing the news: “It’s so cool that one of the most fun, ful­fill­ing cre­ative ex­pe­ri­ences I’ve ever had is be­ing hon­ored in this way. I ended up spend­ing many days on set watch­ing the other per­form­ers do their scenes. Con­grats to my co-writer and buddy 4 life An­drew Lloyd Web­ber. This is just purr­fect.” ●●Cats opens in cin­e­mas on Fri­day.
