Wow, Taylor Swift. Now that is a look to get people talking!
The MET Gala’s theme this year, Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology, was always going to encourage some pretty experimental looks. And no one pushed the theme further than our Swifty.
The 26-year-old turned up to the red carpet in New York working a seriously edgy silver snake-print cut-out Louis Vuitton mini-dress teamed with a pair of black leather bondage stilettos.
And totally in keeping with her new rock chic makeover, Swifty wore her bleach blonde locks messy and trussed up, topping off with a gothic dark red lip and just a touch of mascara.
So, what exactly are we calling her scaly, robo-chic look? ‘Futuristic gladiator robot’, Taylor said to describe her look to Vogue on the red carpet. ‘That’s what I wanted’. Well, she well and truly nailed it.
Now, we tip our hats to Taylor for embracing this year’s futuristic theme, but let’s be honest – it was always going to be a look that divided opinion.
And it did just that amongst fashion critics and Twitter users alike, with Swifty’s MET Gala dress easily being amongst the most-talked about of the night.
‘Is Taylor Swift’s Met Gala look a piece of performance art or is she forreals right now’, questioned one confused viewer.
‘Is @taylorswift13 trying out for some movie we’re not aware of? #MetGala’, wrote another.
Whilst many drew comparisons between Swifty and a certain Gossip Girl character…
‘I think taylor swift watched gossip girl before attending the met gala and said to herself, “i am not little J anymore”‘, commented another. Teehee.
Still, many fans thought Taylor looked fierce as, and totally fitting for the theme.
One thing we were a little confused about was where Tay Tay’s date for the night was – BFF Selena Gomez had previously gushed about attending the event with Taylor beforehand, but the pair turned up separately on the night.
‘It’s gonna be the best,’ the 23-year-old told Access Hollywood last week. ‘It’s so fun. It’s kinda like prom for fashion… I love going and I love going because everyone feels great.’
Hmm. Maybe one of them had a last minute wardrobe malfunction? We’re sure they were reunited inside!
