Anna Wintour reveals new look for Taylor Swift in Vogue, talks Met Gala film

The Met Gala, otherwise known as the Costume Institute Gala, is unquestionably one of fashion's biggest nights of the year -- driven by the industry's leading lady. After all, if anyone can bring all of Hollywood to New York City for a crowded, warm night at the museum, it's Anna Wintour!

This year's theme, "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology," is guaranteed to be a fun one, with celebrities and designers alike taking inspiration from the tech-driven and sometimes futuristic lives we lead. You know they'll be snapchatting as they walk the carpet and you can bet Sarah Jessica Parker will be wearing an impressive head piece. You can also count on several custom gorgeous gowns worn by the likes of Taylor Swift, Blake Lively and more.

Below, some of our favorite futuristic and tech-inspired looks from the runway over the last few years. It's a healthy combination of things we think might actually grace the red carpet and looks we think might just lend some inspiration.

Met Gala 2016 predictions: 15 runway looks we'd love to see

Worst: Miley Cyrus in Alexander Wang

It feels like we've seen this dress before -- a couple times -- from Miley. It also seems better suited to a "futuristic" theme!

Best: Sienna Miller in Thakoon

Sienna Miller always kills it on the red carpet, and tonight's look was no different. We're all about the fringed beading on her two-piece ensemble.

Photo: Larry Busacca/Getty Images

Worst: Anne Hathaway in Ralph Lauren

The dress itself is well-made and the fabric looks like liquid gold, but we just can't get on board with the hood.

Best: Poppy Delevingne in Marchesa

Poppy, wearing her namesake in a gown, is absolute perfection.

You Decide: Beyonce in Givenchy

Leave it to Beyonce to make an even bigger splash than Sarah Jessica Parker's headdress and Rihanna's HUGE golden robe.  What do you think of her nearly-naked look?

Worst: Chloe Sevigny in JW Anderson

We found this look to be over the top in all the wrong ways.

Photo: Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images

Best: Allison Williams in Giambattista Valli

Williams is typically very "safe" on the red carpet, so we were thrilled to see her take a chance in this voluminous Giambattista Valli gown.

Best/Wildest: Solange in Giles

There's no way to call this a "worst," it's just too cool and out-there! Not really sure how it fits in with tonight's theme, but she positively glitters.

Worst: Kris Jenner in Balmain

Jenner's look was just a little too much... of just about everything. 

Photo: Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images

Worst: Chloe Moretz in Coach

Chalk this up as one of the more yawn-inducing dresses of the night.

Photo: Larry Busacca/Getty Images

Best: Diane Kruger in Chanel Haute Couture

This woman can do no wrong, and we're obsessed with this Chanel look.

We're Torn: Sarah Jessica Parker in H&M

SJP's headdress is ah-ma-zing, we're not denying that. Her dress, however, does nothing for us. What do you think? Sound off in the comments!

Worst: Kerry Washington in Prada

We LOVE Kerry, and love the risk she took with this voluminous gown, but it didn't strike the right chord for us. Perhaps it's the shoes?

Best: Keri Russell in Altuzarra

We LOVED this feathered creation on Keri, and the color was such a refreshing change for this red-dominated carpet.

Best: Katy Perry in Moschino

You can't deny that Katy loves to take a red carpet risk, and this dress was pretty darn cool. She pulled this one off! 

Photo: Larry Busacca/Getty Images

Worst: Kim Kardashian in Roberto Cavalli

Kim's gown was so stunning last year, that we find ourselves disappointed with this one.  It's extremely intricate, but it just doesn't work for her.

Photo: Larry Busacca/Getty Images

Worst: Lady Gaga in custom Balenciaga

Okay, it's a very cool piece. And it's very Lady Gaga. It's just too much for us!

Photo: Larry Busacca/Getty Images

Best: Jennifer Lopez in Versace

The gown was a bit much for us when J.Lo turned to the side to reveal it was totally sheer, but the intricacies and ombre skirt won us over in the end. Plus, if anyone can pull off a gown like this, she can!

Photo: Larry Busacca/Getty Images

Best: Miranda Kerr in custom Louis Vuitton

Not many people wear mini skirts on this red carpet, so it's totally refreshing when someone does -- and does it so well. 

Photo: Larry Busacca/Getty Images

Best: Sofia Vergara in Marchesa

Sofia is always gorgeous, but she looked positively ethereal in this classic sweetheart gown.

Worst: Jennifer Connelly in Louis Vuitton

We can appreciate the statement Connelly was trying to make with this gown, but it missed the mark.

Photo: Larry Busacca/Getty Images

Best: Hailee Steinfeld in Michael Kors

Hailee may have chosen the most-worn color of the night, but her elegant gown was a win for us.

Photo: Larry Busacca/Getty Images

Best: Carey Mulligan

Okay, so it doesn't really fit with the theme (much at all...) but Carey looks so elegant, she had to make our best dressed list.

Photo: Larry Busacca/Getty Images

Best/Worst: Robert Pattinson in a black tux and FKA Twigs in Christopher Kane

Pattinson looked dapper as ever, but we're not big fans of FKA's graphic gown.

Photo: Larry Busacca/Getty Images

Best: Zendaya in Fausto Puglisi

This look probably isn't easy to maneuver in safely (forever afraid someone will step on your train!) but it's just stunning. Zendaya looks youthful yet elegant in this incredible creation.

Photo: Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images

Best: Usher

Hello handsome! Usher was looking very dapper in his all-black suit, and even though he needed his cane to support his foot post-surgery, it certainly added to the look.

Photo: Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images

Worst: Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen

It's not that the twins look bad per se, we just are always hoping for something exciting from them, and this was not the night.

Photo: Larry Busacca/Getty Images

Best: Lizzy Caplan in Donna Karan

This gown draped so perfectly on Lizzy, she looked gorgeous.

Photo by Larry Busacca/Getty Images

Best: Gigi Hadid in Diane von Furstenberg

Gigi looked gorgeous in this gown by DVF, a moment where we certainly feel that simplicity won out.
