Taylor Swift has enlisted scores of her famous friends to star in her new music video for Bad Blood, so it's not surprising Gigi Hadid thinks it will be "epic". The model, who stars as Slay-Z in the video, spilled the details of what we can expect from the new release.

"A lot of badass-ness – just the craziest thing you will ever see," Gigi told People at the Maybelline New York 100 year anniversary party on Thursday. "I can't say much, but it's gonna be epic."

Taylor has been teasing her fans with promo shots from the video for a week, starting by introducing fans to her alter ego Catastrophe.

She then slowly started to reveal photos of the rest of the stellar line-up, including Karlie Kloss as Knockout, Ellie Goulding as Destructa X, Jessica Alba as Domino, and Lena Dunham as Lucky Fiora.

The 25-year-old also confirmed on Twitter that each cast member chose their own character name, writing: "Fun fact about #BadBloodMusicVideo: Each individual actor/ actress chose their character's name and persona. CATastrophe."

A short 56-second teaser video was also released but offered no clues to fans, who have so far deduced that due to the style of the images, the video is a Sin City-style take on friendships.

The ever-growing list of star cameos has now left fans wondering who won't appear in the video. Rumours are still swirling about who else may star in the video, with Cara Delevingne and Selena Gomez both still missing from the Instagram reveal.

However one famous face who won't appear is fellow pop star Katy Perry, who the song is reportedly written about.

Taylor hinted at the 'bad blood' between the pair in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine in September, saying: "For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'"

The Shake it Off singer will debut the new video at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday.
