THE CATS’ WHISKERS
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.
