Met Gala 2016: Taylor Swift Blows Our Minds In Custom Louis Vuitton

Hint: We never in our "Wildest Dreams" thought we'd see the songstress like this!

Gone are the days of this Taylor Swift, the strawberry-blond teen with her perfect ringlets, strumming her guitar singing about boys breaking her heart:

Now, we're seeing a whole new girl. One who is totally BOSS.


At the 2016 Met Gala on Monday evening in New York City, Swift, along with the biggest names in fashion, music and film, arrived to celebrate "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology," an exhibition curated and organized by Andrew Bolton.

Stepping out in a custom Louis Vuitton frock, the 26-year-old international pop star blew everyone's minds with her new ~edgy~ platinum blond lob paired with a bold burgundy lip.

Rocking knee-high leather strappy stilettos (!!!), which looked perfect with her silver ruffled cut-out dress featuring an open back, Swift proved she's moving on to the next fashion chapter in her life (perhaps it's in thanks to her latest Vogue cover?) — and we're totally excited about that.

And if you thought T.Swizzle was just there to stroll the red carpet and be a guest, think again. The "Wildest Dreams" songstress had a very important role to play at the Met — she was the honourary co-chair at the event alongside Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and actor Idris Elba.

Taylor, you win. This is one of your best looks yet. Congratulations.
