How Did BFFs Taylor & Cara Meet?

How did Taylor Swift meet and woo and win over Cara Delevingne? As a matter of fact, how does T. Swift do that with anyone? (A fellow 25-year-old gal who has trouble making friends would like to know.) Swift's been shoving her famous friends down our throats in Sin City-style on her Instagram and Twitter, showcasing all the celeb buddies who are going to make an appearance in her "Bad Blood" music video, including some incredible and envious wild cards like Mariska Hargitay (how?!). But on Friday, to literally no one's surprise, Taylor Swift announced that best bud Cara Delevingne would be a part of the video as a character called "Mother Chucker" — a badass name if I've ever heard one. So, how did these two young powerhouses meet in the first place, and how can I get in on it?

Swift and Delevingne's love has been a long and profound one. They even have slumber parties, which I'm jealous of because none of my friends want to have slumber parties anymore. 15 months ago, per Swifty's Instagram, she, Delevingne, and Ed Sheeren crooned at the U.S. Ambassador's house. Surprisingly, though, it's quite a task to discover what their first meeting was, mainly because there are 284,000 hits on Google when you search "Taylor Swit Cara Delevingne friendship."

But it looks like T and C met in the best way possible — over mutual shade thrown at Harry Styles at the 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, where Swift provided the musical talent. While Swift was killing it with her vocals, Delevingne power walked down the stage and the two ladies very conspicuously high fived, despite the fact that at the time Delevingne was supposedly dating Styles, Swift's ex, and the fact that, at the time, there was rumored "girl-on-girl hate" between them. Their high five looked more like a TV-appropriate middle finger to me.

Ever since then, they've been filling our social media feeds with their selfies of love, and honestly, I just want them to keep it coming. They also love to hang with Delevingne's fellow model and mutual gal pal Karlie Kloss. Hopefully Delevingne gets a big part in "Bad Blood," though there are A LOT of people she'll have to share the spotlight with. Honestly, will this video be an hour long? Again, I wouldn't really mind. Long live Caylor or Tara!
