Taylor Swift will have an exciting new project next year: she’s been named one of the co-chairs of the 2016 MET Gala! The singer will join Idris Elba, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, Apple’s chief design officer Jonathan Ive, as well as designers Karl Lagerfeld, Nicolas Ghesquiere, and Miuccia Prada for next year’s MET Gala.
The theme for the 2016 MET Gala will be Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology. It will be on May 2, 2016. The MET Gala kicks off the Costume Institute’s annual exhibit. Andrew Bolton, curator of the Costume Institute, said this year’s exhibit will:
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. But recently this distinction has become increasingly blurred as both disciplines have embraced the practices and techniques of the other.”
This should be fun! Imagine the costume ideas…
This theme should produce some interesting outfits for next year’s MET Gala! You know Sarah Jessica Parker, Beyonce, Rihanna, Katie Holmes, and Kim Kardashian are among the celebrities who are probably already brainstorming their outfits ;). Can Not WAIT to see them.
