Inside Taylor Swift's Fourth of July Extravaganza

Our invite must've gotten lost in the mail.

Taylor Swift and her squad of model and actress friends celebrated the Fourth of July in music video style, complete with a seaside mansion backdrop, a wardrobe of matching red, white and blue bathing suits and a romance at the center.

Swift welcomed an array of Hollywood elite to her Rhode Island beach party, including a pregnant Blake Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds, Uzo Aduba, models Gigi Hadid and Karlie Kloss and beau Tom Hiddleston, among numerous other famous faces.

The patriotic day gave Swifties serious summer holiday envy as photos from the bash trickled in on social media showcasing attendees frolicking through turquoise waves, canoodling on the beach with their significant others and splishing and splashing on an oversized inflatable party slide (no swans this year). 

Pret-a-Reporter breaks down the who, what and where of the weekend (Hiddleston's "I [love] T.S." tank top and heart-shaped tattoo, included).

THE SQUAD

Numerous members of Swift's loyal squad journeyed to the East Coast for her Independence Day party. In addition to longtime friends Britany LaManna and Abigail Anderson, Ruby Rose, Cara Delevingne, Harley Gusman, St. Vincent, the band Haim and Martha Hunt were among the actors, models and musicians who joined Lively, Reynolds, Aduba, Hadid, Kloss and Hiddleston for the wet and wild gathering.

THE OUTFITS

What's a Fourth of July party if you and your favorite gal pals don't have matching onesies and bathing suits? Swifty didn't miss the memo when it came to matching with her besties for the summery celebration: She posed alongside Hadid and Delevingne in matching bathing suits before the tribe later changed into stars-and-stripes onesies. Tay also made her musical fan army's "wildest (budgetary) dreams" come true when she donned a Forever 21 bikini while cuddling with Hiddleston on the Watch Hill beach. But if you hope to get your hands on the red "America" two-piece Swift wore, be prepared to wait — while you can still score the $12.50 low-rise bottoms, the halter top is already sold out.

Ladies aside, Hiddleston was the major topic of conversation on social media after photos of the British actor sporting a washable heart-shaped tattoo and an "I [love] T.S." tank top surfaced. Why the Night Manager actor chose to strip down to an undershirt with Swizzle's initials has many scratching their heads and others reportedly wondering if it's a conspiracy that the outfit is part of a larger, unannounced project (aka music video).

THE ACTIVITIES

T-Swizzle and her friends participated in all-things summer on July Fourth, which included a supersized inflatable water slide, patriotic body paintings, lots of swimming and intimate body contact. As the hostess with the mostest, Swift participated in each of the activities with her guests: She cascaded down the slippery slide with model-friend Kloss; showcased American flag and heart-shaped paint tattoos on her arm with friend Anderson; waded in the cool Atlantic waters with her crew; and cozied up to Hiddleston on the beach.
