Emma Watson easily boasted one of the most unusual looks of this year’s MET Gala.
Don’t get us wrong, she looked beautiful – the 26-year-old turned up in wide-leg Calvin Klein trousers and an off-the-shoulder bustier top, with a dramatic sweeping train trailing behind her. Typical edgy-yet-chic Watson-style.
But there’s something you didn’t know about the Harry Potter star’s unique red carpet look. Something major. Because guys, it was made out of recycled Coca Cola cans. TRUE STORY.
Emma’s design team crafted the outfit out of recycled drinks bottles as part of The Green Carpet Challenge, and we’re a little gobsmacked tbh.
‘Thank you Calvin Klein & Eco Age for collaborating with me and creating the most amazing gown’, Emma wrote in a new Facebook post next to a photo of her MET outfit. ‘I am proud to say it is truly sustainable and represents a connection between myself and all the people in the supply chain who played a role in creating it.’
‘Each and every part of this beautiful gown has been produced with sustainability in mind, even the components that you can’t see’, she added before explaining that everything from the zip to the silk lining were all eco-friendly.
Stating that plastic is one of the ‘biggest pollutants on the planet’, Emma finished with a statement that read: ‘Truly beautiful things should be worn again and again and again #30wears.’ We couldn’t agree more.
The actress will recycle her MET look by wearing the trousers, top and train separately again (just like us non-celebs would).
Loving this effort from Em. If we could fashion such fabulous outfits out of our empty Diet Coke cans, we’d do it in a FLASH.
