Karl Lagerfeld, Nicolas Ghesquière and Miuccia Prada will also act as honorary chairs for the glamorous event, which will take place on May 2 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute in New York. The theme has been revealed to be Manus x Machina: Fashion in and Age of Technology, with all attendees expected to adhere to a strict dress code specified by the organisers.

Taylor joins Met Ball's already impressive line-up of celebrity hosts which includes Sarah Jessica Parker and Bradley Cooper, as well as Jennifer Lawrence who co-hosted the event in May earlier this year.

Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Kendall Jenner, Beyoncé and the Olsen twins are just some of the fashionistas who regularly hit the red carpet for the glamorous event, and no doubt next year's gala will continue to see the world's most stylish famous faces pulling out all the stops on the red carpet.

This marks yet another milestone in Taylor's ever-successful career, and it comes as no surprise that the Style singer is expanding her empire into the world of fashion.

Not only does she count some of the world's biggest models including Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid and Lily Aldridge as her close friends, but earlier this year she caused a social media meltdown when she unveiled her model-studded Bad Blood video, which also saw celebrities such as Lena Dunham and Jessica Alba making cameos. She has also performed at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show for the last two years, strutting her stuff down the catwalk amongst the angels.

Meanwhile on the red carpet Taylor regularly tops best-dressed lists stepping out in high fashion and sensational outfits, whether she's showing off her incredible figure in crop tops and trousers or dazzling fans in floor-length gowns.
