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.

Rauner: Fight Over Term Limits is Not Over

Illinois Republican gubernatorial candidate businessman Bruce Rauner participates in a Republican gubernatorial candidate debate Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2014, in Springfield, Ill. The four Republican gubernatorial candidates said that they’ll be willing to work with unions if elected but differed on how to approach the relationship during a downstate debate that largely focused on pension reform, taxes and just briefly on personal issues that have dogged some of the candidates.

Rauner is publicly calling upon Illinois' appellate and Supreme Courts to approve a term limit referendum
