Taylor Swift signed off the UK leg of her world tour in style with an open-air show featuring one of Britain’s top models.
Cara Delevigne waved a Union Jack flag as she joined the singer on stage before a 65,000-strong crowd at London’s Hyde Park.
Tennis champion Serena Williams and model Kendall Jenner also appeared in a catwalk-themed section of Swift’s two-hour set.
The US pop star told her fans she would “remember this night for the rest of [her] life”.
“I remember seven years ago when I played my first UK show,” she said. “King’s College [in London] had sold out and there were a few hundred people.
“I was surprised that a few hundred people would come to see me perform and now I’m looking at 65,000 people in Hyde Park.
“This is one of those nights where I’m aware I’m going to be taking mental snapshots so I can remember this night for the rest of my life,” the singer continued.
The speech was one of several extended confessionals from a performer whose closeness to her fans became literal during a section where a giant rotating bridge suspended her above the heads of her adoring acolytes.
