Taylor Swift took inspiration from former Spice Girls star Geri Halliwell by donning a Union Jack mini-dress during her performance at the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show in New York City on Wednesday.

The “Love Story” hitmaker took to the runway with a bevvy of beauties strutting their stuff in the lingerie brand’s extravagant wares, and she went all out when it came to the “British Invasion” segment of the show.

Swift sported a sexy dress fashioned out of the British flag, with a matching red, white and blue train, shoes and miniature top hat.

The look was similar to the iconic Union Jack frock worn by Halliwell during a Spice Girls performance at the 1997 Brit Awards in London.

The section also featured British models Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn, who gave nods to their homeland by wearing a sexed-up soccer kit and fox hunting gear respectively. Adriana Lima dressed as a Cockney ‘Pearly Queen’, Kasia Struss as a British police officer, while Cindy Bruna gave a nod to the rainy U.K. weather in a see-through outfit.

Swift then changed into a sparkly, crystal-covered gown to sing her hit tracks including “I Knew You Were Trouble” while on the catwalk with the scantily-clad models.

Fall Out Boy, A Great Big World and Neon Jungle also performed at the Lexington Avenue Armory bash, where rocker Adam Levine was in the audience to watch his fiancee Behati Prinsloo walk the runway wearing huge white, feathered wings.

The fashion show airs Dec. 10 on CBS.
