It’s a widely held understanding that Taylor Swift loves a London boy. So much so that she dedicated a song on her 2019 album, Lover, to all the English lads she’s fancied over the years. But it appears her devotion to the United Kingdom isn’t exclusive to romantic relationships.

Last night, Swift left her boyfriend Travis Kelce in Kansas City to travel nearly 7,000 kilometres to support Beyoncé at the European premiere of her Renaissance concert film. Indeed, when Swift wants to repay a favour, she’ll go to great lengths.

For the occasion, Swift embraced the metallic mode of the evening in a bejewelled disco ball-inspired column dress. The sparkling silver number featured a sculpted neckline and body-conscious fit, with a plunging slit that allowed for some movement from the garment. Mirroring the divide in the dress, Swift styled her blonde curls into a Studio 54 side part à la Jerry Hall.

Swift’s attendance at Leicester Square’s Odeon Theatre should come as no surprise to devoted fans—both ‘Swifties’ and members of the ‘Beyhive’. In early October, Beyoncé made a public display of encouragement to the 33-year-old by attending the premiere of Swift’s Eras Tour movie in Los Angeles. Beyoncé’s presence at the event was the first the pair were together outside of an industry setting. Following the theatrical debut, Swift took to social media to sing the 42-year-old’s praises.

“I’m so glad I’ll never know what my life would’ve been like without @beyonce’s influence,” wrote Swift on Instagram. “The way she’s taught me and every artist out here to break rules and defy industry norms. Her generosity of spirit. Her resilience and versatility. She’s been a guiding light throughout my career and the fact that she showed up tonight was like an actual fairy tale. 😇🙏🥹”

Swift didn’t attend the Los Angeles screening of Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé as she was reeling from a slew of tragic events that plagued the South American leg of her stadium tour. But after recovering from the calamities with Kelce in his Missouri hometown, it’s apparent Swift wasn’t going to miss the opportunity to support her contemporary.

These exhibitions of devotion from both Swift and Beyoncé are seemingly part of a concerted effort to dispel any lingering doubt about their unwavering support for one another. In 2009, Swift and Beyonce were both written into a competitive narrative that pitted them against each other after Kanye West stormed the stage at the MTV Music Video Awards to declare Beyonce deserved a Moonman over the then-emerging country star.

But as Swift sang on the same Lover album in her single “You Need To Calm Down”; “We see you over there on the internet / Comparing all the girls who are killing it /But we figured you out / We all know now, we all got crowns / You need to calm down.”
