They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and sometimes it can show up in the least expected places—like Joe Jonas' James Bond-themed 30th birthday party. His wife, actress Sophie Turner, attended the shindig in a stunning black Alexandre Vauthier gown—the very same one Jonas's ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift wore to the 2016 Vanity Fair Oscars after party, as InStyle (opens in new tab) pointed out. Swift was not at the New York City party, but she and Turner have met in public before.

The two were both guests on the Graham Norton Show in May this year:
Swift and Jonas dated more than 10 years back in 2008. She called him out on the Ellen DeGeneres Show then for breaking up with her over a 25-second phone call. Earlier this year, a now 29-year-old Swift was asked what teenage thing she did that she regrets most. "Probably when I put Joe Jonas on blast on your show," Swift said. "That was too much. Yeah, that was too much. I was 18. We laugh about it now. That was mouthy, yeah, teenage stuff there."
Jonas told Dan Wootton (opens in new tab) shortly after on ITV's Lorraine show (opens in new tab) that hearing Swift express her regrets, “it did feel nice. It’s something that I probably was feeling pretty bad about when I was younger, but at the end of the day, like I’ve moved on. I’m sure Taylor’s moved on, and it feels nice, and we’re all friends, and it’s all good. We were so young."
Swift, of course, is dating Joe Alwyn now and just released a song seemingly about (opens in new tab) how committed she is to him.
