Stars have begun to hit the carpet to celebrate the opening of the Costume Institute’s exhibition at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. This year’s theme is “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology,” which explores the industry’s use of both handwork and machine-driven techniques in creating both ready-to-wear and couture. The exhibit opens to the public Thursday and runs through May 14.

Taylor Swift made her Met Gala entrance as this year’s co-chair wearing custom Louis Vuitton from head-to-toe. The singer opted for gladiator sandals by the French fashion house paired with a sliver, cut-out minidress.
