Emma’s changing the world one outfit at a time

Emma Watson’s style choices are always a talking point, because she always looks so damn good. And Monday night’s Met Gala was no exception.

The actress stunned on the red carpet in an off the shoulder black and white bustier, and black tailored trousers, which had a long black train fastened to them.

Not only did she look amazing and make us want to start attaching trains to all of our trousers, Emma also managed to wear an outfit that was completely eco-friendly.

The whole piece was designed by Calvin Klein and Eco Age, and the ensemble was made entirely from plastic bottles.

Explaining her choices, Emma posted on Facebook: ‘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 were made from recycled materials, the bustier was woven from organic cotton, and the organic silk in the lining was crafted to the highest environmental standards.’

She added that she wouldn’t just be wearing the outfit once, intending to wear it time and time again.

‘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.’
