Emma Watson’s Met Gala dress was made from something pretty weird

We hail Emma Watson here at Shemazing! HQ for many reasons, but one reason is her fashion choices.

She's constantly thinking outside-of-the-box when it comes to her style statements, and this year's Met Gala look was no different.

The actress worked the red carpet in a Calvin Klein and Eco Age dress that stood out from the crowds with its unique design of a bustier, trousers and a long dress tail.

But one thing that really makes it different is that it was made from… RECYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLES.

Yep, plastic bottles.

"Plastic is one of the biggest pollutants on the planet," Emma wrote in a Facebook post explaining her look. "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," she explained. "The zippers on the gown are made from recycled materials and the inner bustier has been crafted from organic cotton … The organic silk used in the lining of my gown is certified to a standard that guarantees the highest environmental and social standards throughout production.

"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, and the train can be used for a future red carpet look."

What a woman!
