Hadid also shared photos of her picture-perfect Mary Poppins costume. 

“Just a spoon full of sugar helps 2018 go down ... in the most delightful way! 
HAPPY NEW YEAR !” she wrote, quoting a line from the famous movie. 

Swift had another major New Year’s Eve moment when the documentary about her recent “Reputation” tour dropped on Dec. 31, to her fans’ delight. 

Swift also made a few rare appearances with her boyfriend of over two years, Joe Alwyn, in New York City at the end of the year. It’s unclear if he was also at the New Year’s Eve bash.
