Taylor Swift’s new music video for Bad Blood will be a star studded movie. With appearences by actress Lena Dunham, models Gigi Hadid and Lily Aldridge,  Ellie Goulding and others, the video promises to be a Sin City inspired extravaganza.

Swift will star (and produce) as Catastrophe in the Joseph Kahn-directed video.1 She will be joined by Ellie Goulding, Lena Dunham, Gigi Hadid, Lily Aldridge, Zendaya, Hayley Williams and Hailee Steinfeld. The video for Bad Blood, the fourth single from T Swift’s hugely successful album 1989, will debut at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards on May, 17th.

Taylor, who is currently touring the world, shared the character posters for each of the women. She also revealed that “each individual actor/actress chose their character’s name and persona”, which led to names like Slay-Z (Hadid), Cut-Throat (Zendaya), Destructa X (Goulding) and Frostbyte (Aldridge).
