Queen Bees & Wannabes: the MET Gala
Re-read Queen Bees and Wannabes (which inspired Mean Girls) with the current state of Hollywood friendship in mind. It’s a trip.
Anyway, Taylor Swift was in New York this weekend, seen several times at various pre-MET Gala events. As you know, Taylor is co-chairing the event this year with Idris Elba and Apple’s Jonathan Ive and honourary chairs Nicolas Ghesquire, Karl Lagerfeld, and Miuccia Prada. Which is why I mentioned the other day that it’s probably best form for Taylor to wear one of those three designers. And since Selena Gomez has already confirmed that she and Taylor are each other’s dates, and given that Selena has an established relationship with Louis Vuitton, it’s quite possible that they could be LV’ing together. Apparently the dress code is “tech white tie” for the theme Manus x Machina. Expect a lot of silver?
And a complicated seating assignment?
Because Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom arrived in New York this weekend too. Katy’s a regular at the MET Gala. She went last year with Jeremy Scott. Taylor wasn’t at the MET Gala last year though. And this year her name is on the invitation. I’ll just leave that there.
And remind you of what she wore to the event two years ago, before Bad Blood, before 1989:
Not exactly the best last impression. Let’s see how she changes that tonight, now that she’s a platinum blonde.
