When you get invited to a party with a theme like “Manus x Machina,” you have two options. One, dress up like an actual robot. Two, let your accessories do the talking.
Unless you happen to look damn good in a glittery silver body suit, you need to step up your accessorizing game, whether that involves getting fake tats, painful looking robot heels or all of the above.
Consider your next Halloween — er, Met Gala — look covered.

I definitely wore that during my school's rendition of “Antony and Cleopatra.” Except mine were cheap plastic and hers probably weigh at least 20 pounds each.
Olivia Culpo got a tattoo.

Is it bad that I'm hoping she has to slap someone at the gala just so I can see the imprints of her nails on someone's face? Also, is it bad I hope that someone is Anna Wintour?
Taylor's heels are what nightmares are made of.
Taylor Swift or Little Jenny Humphrey? You decide. #MetGala #ManusxMachina pic.twitter.com/va08kQ6KOQ — Choupette Lagerfeld (@ChoupettesDiary) May 2, 2016
Her dress might look like a bad prom getup from 2006, but those heels are both beautiful and terrifying.

Can we all agree that this year's theme was basically an excuse to raid your high school Hot Topic wardrobe?
