The "Style" singer, 25, recruited some of her many celeb BFFs for the project, putting together a posse of truly badass ladies. Each has a different femme fatale alter ego, which — according to a tweet from the 1989 hitmaker — they chose themselves.

Swift's "Bad Blood" persona, natch, is Catastrophe, emphasis on the "cat." Her poster was the first of the bunch on May 7, and shows her staring down the camera while rocking a leather motorcycle jacket and some seriously fierce eye makeup.

Karlie Kloss as Knockout

Jessica Alba as Domino

There's also at least one man in the video, whose poster was revealed on May 11. Per Swift's Twitter, Kendrick Lamar will appear as Welvin Da Great. 

One star who definitely won't have a role? Katy Perry. As sources confirmed to Us Weekly last year, Swift wrote "Bad Blood" about her ongoing rivalry with the "Roar" singer. 

"For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not," the "22" chanteuse told Rolling Stone in September, without naming names. "She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'"

Both Swift and Perry dated John Mayer, but Swift insists their beef is professional, not personal. "She did something so horrible. I was like, 'Oh, we're just straight-up enemies!' And it wasn't even about a guy!" she shared. "It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I'm surprisingly non-confrontational — you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It's awkward, and I don't like it."
