Taylor Swift Is Co-Hosting The Met Ball 2016, And The Theme Is Quite Interesting
Aka, we have no idea what it means.
It might not even be Halloween yet, but the people behind the Met Ball (or Met Gala as it’s properly called) have already unveiled their plans for 2016.
Yep, May is still over six months away, but when it comes to planning ridiculously fancy outfits, clearly celebrities need time – so next year’s theme AND co-host has already been made public knowledge.
Proving that she really is dominating the world in every way possible, Taylor Swift will be co-hosting the event - taking over from Jennifer Lawrence who took on the honour earlier this year.
So, what’s the theme of 2016’s biggest fashion event, we hear you ask?
Why it happens to be: 'Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology’. No, we don’t know what that means either.
Luckily, Andrew Bolton, curator of the Costume Institute has explained it a little better, telling Vogue: “Traditionally, the distinction between the haute couture and prêt-à-porter was based on the handmade and the machine-made."
Pret a manger?

“But recently this distinction has become increasingly blurred as both disciplines have embraced the practices and techniques of the other.”
Oh well, no matter what the theme, we’re sure Taylor and all the other celebs will be looking outrageously fancy when the big day finally rolls around.
And we’ll be watching it all unfold in our trendiest pair of pyjamas.
