Taylor Swift is co-hosting the Met Gala this year, alongside Jonathan Ive, chief design officer of Apple, and actor Idris Elba, under the auspices of chairwoman Anna Wintour. Surely you'd expect her to show up with her DJ boyfriend Calvin Harris, who's been showing up regularly in lovey-dovey snaps on her Instagram?

Nah. For this gala, Taytay is reverting to a formula she's proved many times was failproof: going with her BFF Selena Gomez as her date.

'It's Kind Of Like Prom For Fashion'

Talking to Access Hollywood, the "Revival" singer revealed she was going with Taylor Swift to tonight's gala:

"[Taylor and I] are going with each other. It's so fun, it's going to be the best. It’s kind of like prom for fashion."

It's not the first time they've let their close relationship shine on the red carpet, recently showing up together at the MTV Video Music Awards and the Grammys.

Since Taylor said Selena was "the closest thing she's ever had to a sister," we can't even be mad we don't get to see which of her handsome suitors Selena would have taken to the event.

What Are They Going To Wear?

The theme this year is "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology," so we can't wait to see what they're both going to wear! Neon dresses? Electrically powered swirling skirts? Unfortunately Selena wouldn't reveal a thing, but you can head over to Go Fug Yourself for a retrospective of Tay's Met outfits.

And while the inside of the gala will be kept secret as always, this year will be the first time we'll get to see a live coverage of the red carpet by E! News, so stay tuned for Tay and Selena's arrival starting 7pm EST!

What's your favorite Taylor & Selena moment?
