Taylor's Best Looks
Check out Taylor Swift looking her finest.
Taylor Swift was one of the earlier stars to arrive to the ‘Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty’ Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum in New York City Monday evening.

The country singer looks gorgeous in a nude J Mendel gown, with her trademark red lips and hair pulled back. So who was Taylor’s date?Swift was on the arm of designer Gilles Mendel! That’s quite the honor.

TS was last linked with Country Strong hunk Garrett Hedlund but the two have not been seen together since their one date in Nashville.

Speaking of Hedlund, can’t wait to see what Leighton Meester wears! Last year she was one of the bigger risk takers on the carpet. Celebuzz will have all the pictures from the Met Gala so check back here!
