On Monday evening, the fashion elite and the most popular people on social media got together for the famous Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala, which this year included Taylor Swift as a co-chair alongside fashion queen Anna Wintour.

The theme for 2016 was Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, which, translated to English, means sparkly expensive fabric that looks like it went through a paper shredder. Or, for the more stylish (Claire Danes. CLAIRE DANES.), it meant a fashionable gown with a futuristic aesthetic. As evidenced by the eclectic array of questionable ensembles, nobody really knew what to wear for this theme, making it just like every other year.
