There’s no mandate for women, but the Jamesian-style ball gowns are expected to stun — and make group photos, as well as walking the Met’s stairs, challenging. THR hears attendance was booked fast and early: Prada will be represented by brand face Lupita Nyong’o and Michelle Dockery; Prabal Gurung by Zoe Saldana; Givenchy by Amanda Seyfried; J. Mendel by Taylor Swift; Diane von Furstenberg by Margot Robbie and Olivia Munn; Tommy Hilfiger by Zooey Deschanel; with Jessica Chastain, Emilia Clarke, Naomi Watts, Jessica Pare and Allison Williams also attending.

Not that I ever was as good as her, but I see a lot of myself in someone like Taylor Swift. She has some of the same drive that I had.
She takes both her artistry and the business side seriously. Get things done. I think she is spectacularly talented and I am very proud of her.

We already know that Taylor Swift is the ultimate celebrity BFF, but her recent hangout session with Lena Dunham has us thinking that we might be seeing her on the small screen hanging out with a very famous group of girlfriends. Lena was spotted visiting Taylor’s NYC apartment on Monday while carrying several bags and what appeared to be a script, and she later tweeted that she was preparing to start shooting on the fourth season of her hit HBO show, Girls. Taylor and Lena have been friends for years, but maybe now that Taylor has been spending a lot of time in the Big Apple, she might have time to make a cameo appearance in the upcoming season. After all, she did just make a surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live to support her other friend Ed Sheeran. Later, after Lena left, Taylor met up with model-turned-cookie baker Karlie Kloss for a gym session and a stop by a local restaurant for dinner.
The Taylor fan club doesn’t just belong to famous women, as Lena’s boyfriend, fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff, recently revealed that he respects the young pop star. “The reason why Taylor stands above everyone else is because she’s a songwriter,” Jack said in an interview with Vanity Fair. “She sits in rooms, and she writes songs. Most importantly, they sound like her. All the other pop stars, to put it in a really simple way, they’re just not as talented.” He added, “Other pop stars have to go through, like, a goth phase. You can imagine the marketing meetings behind other pop stars. Whereas the meeting behind Taylor is like, ‘Write a great f*cking album,’ which she can.” Jack has firsthand experience of Taylor’s songwriting experience, as he wrote “Sweeter Than Fiction” with her for One Chance.
