"She creates masterpieces when it comes to all of her looks down to the headpiece, everything, the detail," she said to Vogue on the carpet.
Taylor also wore a gown by van Herpen. She said that she wanted to give a "real gilded meets the future" vibe with her look.

Sarah Jessica Parker
Sarah Jessica Parker wore a Christopher John Rogers gown that was inspired by Elizabeth Hobbs Keckley. Keckley (also spelled Keckly) was a "close friend and confidant" of first lady Mary Todd Lincoln, Parker explained. She was also her dressmaker.
"She had been born into slavery and bought her way out of slavery and had an enormously accomplished and inspiring and extraordinary life," Parker told Vogue on the red carpet. "And so this dress I thought was really exquisite, and pretty much fit the period of time at which Andrew Bolton had focused this exhibit. And so I asked Mr. John to be part of it and he's amazing and he did it."
She added that her fascinator was designed by Philip Treacy, "as always."
Our queen Lizzo donned a black silk gown and jacket designed by Thom Browne. In a pretaped segment for Vogue, Browne said the embroidery on the jacket had taken "1,200 man hours all hand done by the atelier."
"For me, it feels like an old you know, dress making way of creating something," Browne said.
"It is one of the most beautiful things that I think I have done for someone," he said, adding that the patterns and work that went into it would be "really one of a kind and something worthy of someone as special as Lizzo."
Lizzo also carried her flute — which she has nicknamed Sasha — and showed off gold corkscrew nails.
"So basically I'm gonna be opening everybody wine tonight," Lizzo quipped to Vogue. "I can wipe my a--, believe it or not."
