Oh we do love to watch an A-list friendship in the making - and this weekend we've been treated to not one but TWO instances of blossoming BFFs. Starting with...
? Rita Ora and Naomi Campbell ?

It's no secret that Rita Ora has a penchant for model pals - see Cara Delevingne - but her new friendship with Naomi Campbell is quite literally SUPER. The singer and superdupermodel joined forces during Milan Fashion Week for the Philipp Plein show on Sunday after spending a raucous night together at the BRIT Awards a few days before.
The MFW extravanganza kicked off with a fabulous performance from Rita a-top a customised Chevrolet El Camino car. As you do. Then it was Naomi's turn to take the spotlight as she hit the catwalk showcasing a saucy leather boob tube, ripped jeans and cowboy hat. Talk about a double act!

But it was the pair's frolicks before and after the show that provided us with many magic Instagram moments. Rita shared a snap of them enjoying a cocktail or two along with the caption, 'Last night in Milan thanks for welcoming me and my team so well we love you!!!'. And Naomi returned the gushiness by uploading her own cosy snaps of the new pals. We're looking forward to seeing how this one develops. A joint fashion line perhaps? Either way, it's almost as heart-warming as...
? Taylor Swift and Lorde ?
Just like Rita, Taylor Swift has a knack for making friends with just about anyone, from Ellie Goulding to Hailee Steinfeld to Ed Sheeran - she is super-fun after all - but most recently, Tay's been chumming up with Lorde. This weekend, Swifty shared a snap of the songbirds taking a break on the beach, captioning the shot with 'Bare feet in the sand on a Saturday..'. How dreamy.

Of course, these two have excellent musical skills in common but what has impressed us most is their matchy-matchy wardrobes. While Taylor wore a denim shirt, Lorde wore her own sleeve-less version. And while Taylor showcased her pins in a pair of high-waisted black shorts, Lorde opted for a high-waisted black mini-skirt. Then there's the identikit sunnies and windswept hair to top off the excellent BFF style. Complementary style is the ultimate seal of friendship, no?

The friendship has been a long time in the making with the New Zealand singer first making an appearance on Tay-Tay's Instagram two months ago. The country darling celebrated her 24th birthday with a Melbourne garden party and who should be there? Lorde of course! The duo were pictured cosying up to each other amid a bunch of red balloons and once again, looking sartorially in sync wearing pretty printed frocks. Then, just yesterday, they were seen enjoying some retail therapy in Los Angeles.

This friendship is all the more fascinating considering Lorde once referred to Taylor Swift as 'too flawless and unattainable'. Now, as well as envy-inducing photos, they post supportive tributes to each other on Twitter after awards ceremonies. There's even talk of a duet with Lorde telling London's Capital FM Radio, 'The cool thing about Taylor is she is pretty willing to go a lot of places with music. I think that last record [Red] in particular, everyone was, like, "Woah, a lot of ground has been covered". And I think with an artist like her the sky is the limit.' At 24, Taylor is six years old than the up-and-comer so it appears she has taken Lorde under her breton-striped wing and we can't.get.enough.
