A true Cinderella story! After a long night of cochairing the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala 2016 and dancing the night away with Tom Hiddleston, Taylor Swift hit the afterparty at the Boom Boom Room atop the Standard Hotel.

The “New Romantics” singer, 26, arrived at the night’s official afterparty wearing her same sequined, tiered Louis Vuitton mini and black combat boots. Swift came with the Avengers actor Hiddleston, 35, … who ended up being her real-life hero!

Following a half-hour long dance sesh with Hiddleston, 35, and Sienna Miller, Swift was ready to put her fierce Louis Vuitton heeled gladiators on again, opting to leave the boots behind.

“Taylor laced them up and then stuck her leg all the way up in the air, while sitting, trying to get them to go on,” the source observed. “Hiddleston had to stand up and bang on the bottom of the shoe to get it on.”

On the carpet, Swift explained the story behind her Manus x Machina look. With her metallic tiered mini and lace-up heels, she was going for a “futuristic gladiator robot,” she told Vogue. “That’s what I want.”
