Met Ball 2016

May 4, 2016

With looks ranging somewhere between intergalactic, innovative and futuristic, this year’s Met Gala took everything completely next level. The theme ‘Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology’ made every invitee the definition of the intersection of fashion and technology and these 9 groups prove just that. My question is: which one is your #SquadGoals?
