The Surprising Story Behind Emma Watson's Met Gala Outfit
Emma Watson just made a major statement about sustainable fashion with her Met Gala look. Her stylist, Sarah Slutsky, took to Instagram to explain the story behind Watson's unique red carpet ensemble: "With the help of @ecoage, this 5 piece look is created from 3 fabrics woven from yarns all made from recycled plastic bottles," she captioned her photo.
Slutsky goes on to explain that the look is meant to be repurposed—the trousers can be worn by themselves, and the dramatic train can grace another red carpet, eliminating the wastefulness of a single-use outfit.

Tonight, the stunning @EmmaWatson on the #RedCarpet at the Met Ball in a look crafted by the incredible team at @Calvinklein. With the help of @ecoage this 5 piece look is created from 3 fabrics woven from yarns all made from recycled plastic bottles. Plastic is one of the biggest pollutants – being able to turn this waste into a high quality material is a real success story. Also this beautiful look was designed with the intention to be repurposed for future use; the trousers can be worn on their own, the train can be used for another red carpet - the ultimate #30Wears! #MetGala2016 Makeup: @therealdotti Hair: @visapyyapy
