How amazing was it to see so many A-listers supporting the Green Carpet Challenge at the Mets this year! Lupita Nyong’o and Margot Robbie joined Emma Watson in going green! All three beauties wore designs by Calvin Klein.
Margot’s optical white strapless dress with cutouts is made from a silk fabric woven in Italy, is lined with organic silk and has zippers made from recycled materials.
Lupita Nyong’o wears an incredible jade sequin dress by Calvin Klein for the #GreenCarpetChallenge. Assembled entirely in Calvin Klein’s New York atelier, the Calvin Klein Collection design team created the intricate details and spent hours in-house on the embroidery and understructure of the dress.
And of course our darling Emma stole the show for us, and her quote, well that should be gospel really shouldn’t it!?!
“Truly beautiful things should be worn time and time again”
or re-worked into something even more beautiful if possible.
Speaking about her amazing outfit, Emma proudly told of its origins, the fabrics of the dress were woven from recycled plastic bottles — “one of the biggest pollutants on the planet,” she noted. The cotton used in the design was organic — not the conventional kind that uses chemicals to grow and thus damages the earth and puts workers’ health at stake. Even the zippers were crafted from recycled materials. Now that’s impressive eco chic!
“It is my intention to repurpose elements of the gown for future use,” she wrote. “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.”
Speaking about the challenge, co founder Olive Firth predicts that ” 2016 is going to be the year where we will take fashion back for what it is: beautiful clothes made with love and quality,”
