The Met Gala 2016 theme and hosts announced
Expect the unexpected
The 2016 Met Gala promises to be another stand-out style event with a stellar cast already confirming their place in the fashionable line-up. Taylor Swift, Idris Elba, Miuccia Prada and Apple's Jonathan Ive will all co-host the event. Vogue's Anna Wintour and Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld will also serve as honorary chairs.
The official and much talked about theme for next year's exhibition is Manus x Machine: Fashion in the Age of Technology. The curator for the show Andrew Bolton explains that, "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." We predict a red carpet dazzling with new dimensional wear when the event takes place on May 2, 2016.
