    1989 (Taylor's Version) is officially on its way, so can you name all 17 celebs who appeared alongside Taylor Swift in the iconic "Bad Blood" music video?

    It might be 2023, but it is the year of 1989 . Back in August, Taylor Swift announced that her fifth album, 1989, would be her latest "Taylor's Version" re-release. The new version of the record, which was originally released in 2014, dropped on Oct. 27.

    The album was pivotal in Taylor's career as it cemented her transition from country performer to pop star. This was also Taylor's "girl squad" era, a time when she was routinely seen surrounded by other female celebs.

    The "girl squad" motif was most notable in the music video for Taylor's "Bad Blood" remix, featuring Kendrick Lamar. The music video dropped in 2015, and it included everyone from Zendaya and Lena Dunham to Cindy Crawford and Jessica Alba as an army of women with signature nicknames.
