Bring. It. On. The 2016 Met Ball is in full swing - keep checking back to this page for all the live red carpet updates as they come in

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala is easily one our favourite fashion events of the year. Why? Aside from the spectacular array of breathtaking gowns, designers and their A-list muses on show, it's one of the few events that allows models, celebs and industry insiders the chance to get a little dangerous, sartorially speaking. Awards season might be chock full of beautiful, but gowns but the Met Ball? For fashion lovers, it's the one place where you can get a little creative (don't believe us, check out the Met Gala hall of fame here).

Every year there's a theme and for 2016, it's a perfectly zeitgeist-y one: Manus X Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology. This year's event is also notable co-chaired by Anna Wintour and the current US Vogue cover girl, Taylor Swift - so expect Tay's full squad to be coming in hot.
