There was a time, not too long ago, when every holiday was marked by an epic party, hosted by Taylor Swift. The singer was probably best known for her over-the-top Fourth of July parties on her Rhode Island estate, but she was down to have a crew of famous friends over for just about any occasion, especially if baking and/or themed outfits were involved.
After taking a big step back from the public eye for the last few years, purging her Instagram account, and almost exclusively posting professional, promotional stuff (with the occasional cat lady picture or birthday shoutout mixed in), Taylor is back to hosting her famous friends. Or, at very least, she's back to inviting the rest of us to take a peek inside those parties.
Last night, Taylor hosted a very Taylor-y New Year's Eve bash with the theme "dress like your childhood hero." In attendance was what can only be described as a gaggle of celebrities, including Blake Lively (as Dorothy Gale from The Wizard of Oz), Gigi Hadid (as Mary Poppins), and Ryan Reynolds (as Ryan Reynolds in a grey suit and undone red tie, it appears). Taylor dressed as Ariel from The Little Mermaid, complete with red wig and crab purse.
"Mary Poppins, Audrey, Ariel, Ms. Frizzle, Cinderella, Gwen, Mr. Toad, Avril, Nancy Drew, Posh Spice, Rizzo, Frida Kahlo, Steve Irwin, Dorothy.. This new year we decided to dress up as our childhood heroes. Sending you all love and hope going into 2019 💗," she wrote by way of a caption in a series of pictures highlighting her party guests' amazing ensembles.
