No, we’re not trashing it – it was actually made out of garbage.
Emma Watson did her signature dress-over-pants thing at this year’s Met Gala, but then took it to a whole new level with a bustier and a classy AF train and as far as we’re concerned, she nailed it.
Only adding to our props for Hermione’s outfit is that it was made out recycled plastic bottles. No, seriously.
In an update on Facebook, Emma revealed that she was making an environmental statement – not just a fashion statement:
“The body of the gown is crafted from three different fabrics, all woven from yarns made from recycled plastic bottles (!). Plastic is one of the biggest pollutants on the planet. Being able to repurpose this waste and incorporate it into my gown for the #MetGala proves the power that creativity, technology and fashion can have by working together.
“Each and every part of this beautiful gown has been produced with sustainability in mind, even the components that you can’t see. The zippers on the gown are made from recycled materials and the inner bustier has been crafted from organic cotton.
“It is my intention to repurpose elements of the gown for future use. The trousers can be worn on their own, as can the bustier, the train can be used for a future red carpet look… I’m looking forward to experimenting with this. Truly beautiful things should be worn again and again and again. #30wears”
Honestly, this woman can do no wrong. * Bows down *
