It was only a few weeks ago that we became OB-sessed with Taylor Swift's burgeoning friendship with Karlie Kloss. The road trip! The matching bobs! The dreamy Instagrams! This is a match made in celeb heaven, we thought, convinced that the leggy duo would be spotted being besties around the globe for ever after. But hang on a minute. Within a blink of an eye, here's Taylor hanging out with yet another Victoria's Secret catwalker! Move aside, Karlie.
The blonde songstress was spotted trotting around New York this weekend with none other than Lily Aldridge, aka: beautiful undies model and wife of a Kings of Leon. The pair flaunted their friendship at the Victoria's Secret show last November when Tay-Tay took to the catwalk for a performance surrounded by the Angels, including Ms Aldridge. In true fan-girling style, she took to Twitter to share a snap of her with Lily as well as Cara Delevingne and Erin Heatherton, saying 'the best things always happen on the 13th! Best friends forever'.

Hanging out with lingerie models might seem like a daunting prospect to the average female - but then Taylor is hardly your average Joe. In fact, it seems that performing at the super-glossy, all-girls show equals a gaggle of gorgeous new mates. Just look at Rihanna who swiftly became friends with Cara and was spotted wearing the model's Mulberry design just yesterday (the ultimate proof of BFF love).
But we can't help feeling this is a slighty odd match. Because while Taylor's a country darling, Lily is the wife of a super-cool rocker. Lily loves her edgy gear - see the black leather knee-high boots over skinny jeans - while Taylor is a fan of girlie colour blocking - see the cutie red lip to match her cutie red satchel. And we all know Taylor is ALL about the matchy-matchy dressing to seal her bestie status...
It's proof though that opposites really do attract and it turns out these two have been friends for yonks (see the adorable snap of them together way back in 2008). They both live in Nashville and surely share stories of dating hot rocker types. In fact, it was Lily who got Taylor the VS gig, as revealed by the brand's chief creative officer.
'I was having dinner with Lily Aldridge and told her it would be great if Taylor Swift would do the show,' Ed Razek told Women’s Wear Daily. 'Lily said, "We both live in Nashville and we're friends." I was incredulous, like "you are friends with Taylor Swift? That's like something imaginary, like you're friends with Harvey the Rabbit." Lily sent her a note, and Taylor Swift said she would love to do the Victoria's Secret show.' And the rest is sequin-drenched history...

The question is: who'll be next on Taylor's friendship hit-list? Is she set to become the female version of Leonardo DiCaprio and work her way through the Angels? Over to you, Candice Swanepoel.
