A complete history of Taylor Swift and the Haim sisters' iconic friendship


Iconic friend groups are the bomb—the BSC, TSITP debutante crew and obvi the HSMTMTS gang. The friend group we're obsessed with now though? Taylor Swift + Este, Danielle and Alana (aka the R&B girl group HAIM). From matching onesies to a surprise performance in London, this squad is total bestie goals. Wanna relive all their best moments with us? You've come to the right place.

Met Gala afterparty May 3, 2016

The 2016 Met Gala is an event that will live in our minds forever. Not only did it give us a main-character meet-cute for Taylor and Joe Alwyn (and, subsequently, half the songs on reputation), but it also gave the girls an opportunity for the cutest hang. Taylor and the Haim sister squad spent the night chowing down on pizza and wearing matching onesies. Name a more iconic photo—we'll wait.

While Swifties everywhere still had folklore on repeat, Blondie surprised everyone again with her second folk album: evermore. Track 6 on evermore is "no body, no crime" featuring the Haim sisters. GRL PWR and a murder mystery? Sign us up.

"Gasoline" February 21, 2021

HAIM released their album Women in Music, Pt. III in 2020, which included the upbeat tune "Gasoline". We didn't know it at the time, but only two months later we would get a remix of this bop with some extra vocals from our cat-loving queen.

Taylor and Alana's birthday party December 13, 2021

This past year, the girls were feeling happy, free, confused and lonely in the best way as Taylor and Alana celebrated their 32nd and 30th birthdays. From Gracie Abrams to Sadie Sink, the guest list was top tier. Speaking of tiers, the cakes were gorg, too.

HAIM gave us the perfect summer surprise on the London stop of their One Last Haim tour—a "Love Story"/"Gasoline" mashup featuring T-Swift herself. Didn't catch a concert vid? Picture a choir of angels singing (specifically four of them), only they're wearing matching black sets and basically having a party onstage. 

Loving the celeb content? We know the vibes:
🫶 Mirabelle Lee spills on all things acting and new Disney series Saturdays
🫶 Team Conrad or Team Jeremiah? Let's debate Belly's perfect match on TSITP
🫶 Saylor Bell spills on season three of HSMTMTS

Our Insta? Basically a T-Swift fan account.
