Taylor Swift’s Best Met Gala Red Carpet Moments

We look back on her top fashion moments.

Since making her debut on the 2008 red carpet, Taylor Swift has become a regular feature on the Met Gala’s annual best-dressed list. 

While she may be best known for her sleek and structured old Hollywood style, Taylor’s Met Gala appearances have marked both her musical and style evolution from country queen to pop princess. 

Although she may have been a frequent attendee in the early 2010s, the singer has not graced the New York steps since 2016, leaving many fans questioning whether the 2024 fundraiser will mark her long-awaited return to the Met Gala. 

As Swifties continue to keep a keen eye out for her next look, we take a look back at Taylor’s best Met Gala red carpet fashion.

Is Taylor Swift going to the Met Gala? 

Although the guest list of the 2024 Met Gala is kept under wraps until the big day, it unfortunately does not look like Taylor Swift will be attending this year’s fundraiser. 

Ahead of the Met Gala, fans began to speculate over whether Taylor would finally make her red-carpet debut alongside boyfriend Travis Kelce. While the couple have not shied away from a sprinkle of PDA in recent months, according to TMZ, the couple decided to turn down their invitations to the biggest night in fashion. 

Despite the pair not publicly stating whether they will or will not be attending, some critics have suggested that the couple may have denied their invitation to avoid a sudden surge of media attention.
