Emma Watson in Calvin Klein Collection

Not only was Emma Watson's Calvin Klein Collection black-and-white multipiece ensemble gorgeous, it was also eco-friendly. "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," Watson wrote on Facebook.
