Taylor Swift Goes High-Fashion Alien For The Met Gala

Two words: silver snakeskin

Taylor Swift is officially in the Met Gala building, y'all. This is Taylor's first red carpet as a platinum blonde and, yeah, it's working for her.

At past Met Galas, Taylor has opted for old Hollywood glamour — this year she's ditched the floor-length gowns for something shorter and shinier. Her metallic snakeskin dress embraces this year's Manus x Machina theme, which makes sense considering she's one of the 2016 co-chairs.

It's very high-fashion alien, no?

Perhaps the most surprising part of this look, though, is that dark lip. The new, edgier Taylor Swift that Vogue predicted is officially upon us. Prepare accordingly.
