Since the start of Taylor Swift's Eras Tour last year, there has been a trend among fans to make and exchange beaded friendship bracelets. It was inspired by lyrics from a song on the artist's 2022 album Midnights: "So make the friendship bracelets, take the moment and taste it."

They are now a key element of all the pop star's shows, whatever the continent, country or city where she performs. Many Swifites spell out words, lyrics, album titles or phrases or memes associated with her on the bracelets.

And it seems that they're not the only ones who have enjoyed taking part in this trend. At the first concert of the London leg of the tour last night (Friday, June 21), Nicola Coughlan was seen trading bracelets with a fan.

The Bridgerton star attended Taylor Swift's show yesterday alongside Queer Eye's Jonathan van Ness. Salma Hayek and Leslie Mann were also spotted in the audience.

The Irish actress was filmed trading one of her blue beaded bands with a yellow one from a fellow Swiftie. The latter posted the exchange with a video captioned: "I had the sweetest chat with Nicola after we traded bracelets!"

And the 37-year-old is not the only celebrity to participate in the trend. Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lawrence and Jennifer Garner, among others, have all joined the friendship bracelets craze.
