Okay, so we’re all up-to-date on the paparazzi pics of Taylor Swift‘s 4th of July party, right?
And we’re all up-to-date on that bizarre, but also kinda-possibly-has-a-few-legs conspiracy theory that T-Swift and Tom Hiddleston are merely locking lips in some kind of performance art for a new video clip, right?
Cool. Because Taylor’s SS16 #squad – stalwarts Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevingne, newcomers Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds and Ruby Rose, and vintage players (i.e. Taylor’s BFFs from ~before~) Abigail and Brit – have now posted a slew of pics from the créme-de-la-créme of Independence Day parties, and they are unfairly good.

The ‘proper’ squad-in-ocean shot:
The ‘make America great again’:
Taylor + Cara + next door’s fuck off mansion:
The action shot. Taylor had an American-themed blow up water slide, you best believe there’s a lot of action shots.

This is real cute – apparently there were so many birthdays, and engagements, and other things to celebrate, that Taylor just made a bunch of banners and put them in a room together. Bless.
When there’s literally so much love around your only option is to make a room for all of your love banners & sing love songs to each other. @taylorswift we LOVE you! Kudos to @teddysphotos for the photobomb of the year.
It’s not easy to compete against a cheating team but at least we looked good doing it. ????#CaptainCara #VodkaChelseaHandler @gigihadid @st_vincent @rubyrose @harleygusman @caradelevingne @mattthephotographer @karliekloss @babyhaim @daniellehaim

Apparently the night ended with a T-Swift / Uzo Aduba singalong, which is kinda freaking awesome.
OH WAIT, ED SHEERAN WAS THERE??!
Till next year, folks.
