Tuesday night marked the TIME 100 gala, a celebration of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people. Celebrities such as Dwayne Johnson, Sandra Oh, Nancy Pelosi, and Ava DuVernay all graced the red carpet for the special occasion, per Daily Mail.
Taylor Swift and Khalid, who were both honored at the event, were scheduled to perform the musical acts. It is the first public event for Swift since she made an announcement which hinted at a new album.
To honor the occasion, the Reputation pop star wore a two-tone pink and yellow off-shoulder gown by J. Mendel. The stunning dress retails for $6500. The gown had yellow floral embroidery on the side with billowing sleeves. To complete the look, Swift swept up her hair in a messy updo and completed the hairstyle with a simple floral headband.
Fans went into overdrive, looking for clues in the singer’s choice of gown. Since Taylor has teased a big announcement for April 26, she has given clues that seem tied to pastel colors. For example, one Instagram upload was a picture of ombre pink ruffles, another was of pastel suitcases, and a third was of light blue costume jewelry.
Taylor also posted a picture of herself in her gala dress on Instagram. In the snap, she looks over her shoulder while posing in a romantic garden filled with lilacs. The picture has earned nearly two million likes.
Swift was not the only celebrity to wow on the red carpet. Emilia Clarke stunned in a red sheer bodice gown. The Game of Thrones star accessorized the look with drop earrings and matching red lip.
Brie Larson chose to don a simple green strapless dress. The dress featured details like a built-in belt and pockets, and Brie completed the looked with a slicked back updo. The actress has been keeping busy promoting Avengers: Endgame. In addition, she is celebrating the success of Captain Marvel, which earned more than $1 billion at the box office.
Though most celebrities played it safe with more traditional attire, there were a few fashion risks. Martha Hunt, who has modeled for Victoria’s Secret, Prada, and Dolce & Gabbana, wore a daring feathered number.
However, the biggest fashion risk came from actress Indya Moore. Moore, who currently stars as Angel Evangelista in the FX series Pose, came in a beige gown featuring detailed ruffles on the side. However, the most commanding aspect of the dress was its sheerness; the dress left little to the imagination. The Daily Mail has pictures of her daring attire.
The event, which celebrated its 15th year, was held at the Lincoln Center in New York.
