Taylor Swift’s Surprise Appearance Shuts Down Streets at Jack Antonoff’s Star-Studded Rehearsal Dinner in LBI

Following her appearance at Jack Antonoff’s rehearsal dinner, Taylor Swift fans blocked a major road on Long Beach Island, New Jersey. Hundreds of people gathered outside the Black Whale, where the pop singer was seen celebrating her music producer’s forthcoming marriage to actress Margaret Qualley, according to an eyewitness. The ‘Cruel Summer’ singer was wearing Hill House Home’s June Nap Top ($175) & matching Delphine Nap Skirt ($175) in black scallop lace as she entered the renowned bar and restaurant with Channing Tatum and Zo Kravitz. Lana Del Rey, who has previously collaborated with the Bleachers band, was seen smiling and laughing with other guests on a balcony on the second level of the pub. The “Born to Die” singer, who looked stunning in a white flowery gown, wore her raven hair up over her head to keep cool in the summer heat.

Andie MacDowell, the bride’s mother, was also present to congratulate the newlyweds and was spotted interacting with a baby inside the venue. Cara Delevingne and Ryan Reynolds are also expected to attend the celebrity wedding. As word of Swift’s arrival spread throughout the island, residents flocked to the eatery before police came to regulate traffic. Around 8:45 p.m., the restaurant closed the balcony curtains amid boos from the “Anti-Hero” hitmaker’s admirers outside. Swift & Del Rey left quickly after the rehearsal dinner ended at about 9 p.m., although celebration drinks continued. The “Maid” star displayed her dazzling diamond sparkler — said to be worth about $100,000 — at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2022, revealing Antonoff and Qualley’s engagement.

While Celebrating At Jack Antonoff’s Star-Studded Rehearsal Dinner, Taylor Swift Shuts Down The Street In LBI

Taylor Swift exited a restaurant in Long Beach Island, New Jersey after causing a significant road closure due to her attendance at pal Jack Antonoff’s star-studded wedding rehearsal dinner. Hundreds of Swifties, or devoted followers of the 33-year-old hitmaker, flocked to the Black Whale corner bar to catch a peek of the music icon. Taylor, who was spotted out with friend Ed Sheeran the day before, is in town to celebrate her 39-year-old music collaborator’s wedding to 28-year-old actress Margaret Qualley. The megastar arrived at the star-studded event alongside Channing Tatum and Zoe Kravitz to an uproarious ovation from her adoring fans. Taylor, Zoe, & Channing were not the only celebrities present; Lana Del Rey, who has frequently collaborated with Antonoff, was also present, as was mother-of-the-bride Andie MacDowell. Police were called to the famed Long Beach Island site to verify that the large crowd was behaving properly.

Taylor arrived at the Black Whale wearing a two-piece strapless gown and looked absolutely lovely. Her distinctive dirty blonde hair was styled into an elegant updo, with her fringe falling just beyond her brow. There were multiple videos on social media of Taylor’s appearance at the neighbourhood bar, including a TikTok of her arrival with the 34-year-old songstress and 43-year-old actor seen from inside the restaurant. As the wedding rehearsal was in full motion, hundreds of supporters could be heard yelling ‘Taylor! Taylor!’ The scene became even more chaotic. Other camera footage shows enormous throngs lining the street in the hopes of catching sight of the Bad Blood hitmaker. After the wedding rehearsal supper began, Taylor hurriedly walked down the steps with her theatrical mates and exited alongside a security detail. Earlier in the day, word of the music megastar’s presence spread around the neighbourhood, prompting locals to flock to the Black Whale, forcing law enforcement to divert traffic, according to Page Six
