Beyonce has Taylor Swift as VIP guest of honour at Renaissance premiere as star’s team put up ring of steel around event
POP stars Taylor Swift and Beyonce legged it on to the red carpet tonight in scanty outfits — despite Britain’s big chill.
Taylor, 33, arrived first in a sparkling silver gown with a daring split, yet turned down the offer of a coat.
The Shake It Off singer was guest of honour at the London premiere of Beyonce’s Renaissance concert film.
Not to be outdone, Beyonce flashed her thighs in a black blazer dress.
The 42-year-old was with rapper husband Jay Z, 53, at the red carpet event.
A source at the Odeon cinema in Leicester Square said: “Because of the stars’ fan bases, crowd control measures were put in place to make sure everyone was safe.

“It was the most tightly guarded premiere this year.”
Taylor, who was supported by Beyonce at the Hollywood opening of her record-breaking Eras Tour movie in October, flew in by private jet from Kansas where she has been staying with NFL star boyfriend Travis Kelce.
Beyonce hopes her flick can rival Taylor’s, which has so far taken £198million worldwide.
It contains footage of her three children — Blue Ivy, 11, and six-year-old twins Rumi and Sir.
Blue Ivy, who was a dancer on the tour, joined her mum to pose for photographers.
The Single Ladies singer then went inside to greet Taylor.
Other celebs there included pop star Mabel, Australian singer Sia and Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock.
Beyonce and Jay Z had arrived in London on Wednesday and were joined for dinner at Oswald’s private members club by actor Tom Cruise.
While the couple left quickly afterwards, 61-year-old Tom delighted fans — but held up traffic — to sign autographs and pose for selfies.
One furious taxi driver was heard shouting: “Did he buy the street? I don’t give a f*** about Tom Cruise.”
