Met Gala 2016 Theme Announced, Taylor Swift to Co-Chair!
The theme for the 2016 Met Gala has officially been announced – Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology!
Taylor Swift and Idris Elba have been revealed as the two celebrity co-chairs alongside Vogue’s Anna Wintour, Apple’s Chief Design Officer Jonathan Ive, and designers Karl Lagerfeld, Nicolas Ghesquiere, and Miuccia Prada.
Next year’s exhibit will take place on Monday, May 2 and “focus on the dichotomy between handmade haute couture and machine-made fashion.”
“Traditionally, the distinction between the haute couture and prêt-à-porter was based on the handmade and the machine-made,” Andrew Bolton, curator of the Costume Institute, told Vogue. “But recently this distinction has become increasingly blurred as both disciplines have embraced the practices and techniques of the other.”
Taylor has attended the Met Gala five times in the past. See all of her looks in the gallery below!
