The 2016 Met Gala Theme Has Just Been Announced

For the 2016 MET Gala (a.k.a. the Superbowl of fashion), Vogue and the Costume Institute is looking to the future. The recently announced theme of the much-anticipated exhibit, Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, will be celebrating everything tech and will reportedly showcase more than 100 pieces of hand-made and machine-made fashion, highlighting how much technology actually plays a part in the design process. Other important facts to know: Apple is sponsoring the event, which couldn’t be more appropriate, and Taylor Swift is one of this year’s esteemed co-chairs. (Maybe this played a role in their burying the Apple Music hatchet?) With this news, we expect to see Chanel’s light-up sandals galore, bedazzled apple watches and hopefully a virtual reality livestream of the red carpet. The looks on the long list of A-list celebs in attendance are sure to be greater than anything we could possibly imagine. Katy Perry may want to upgrade her LED dress from the 2010 MET gala.
