This year’s Met Gala red carpet really delivered on the drama. The looks were informed by the not-at-all-problematic theme Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. As strange as this theme may sound, it didn't stop the celebrities embracing it to the full extent.
Most of the guests were dripping in finesse, Katy Perry accessorized with some ginormous angel wings, and Rihanna came as the Pope, obviously.
On the red carpet, our favourite looks were both good looking and good for the planet. From vintage gowns to flawless custom-made couture and GOTS certified 100% organic cotton silk, celebrities really delivered in the ethical fashion department this year. Check out their truly heavenly looks below.
Vegan superstar Miley Cyrus appeared in a floor-length Stella McCartney gown at the Met Gala on Monday and used her time in the spotlight to promote veganism. She said, “I’m here so excited to be a part of this because I think this moment can be about so many different things, and for me, I want to bring a message which is veganism and that there doesn’t have to be torture in fabulous fashion.”
while Stella McCartney added:
“You can be stylish, and sustainable all at the same time.”
She rocked a 100% GOTS certified organic silk and cotton gold Versace dress. And not only was it made free from toxic chemicals, but the fabric was dyed ecologically. Even the zipper was lead, nickel, and colourant-free. Talk about heavenly!
Mixed royalty with down-to-earth sensibility in her Met Gala ensemble, the 20-year-old model arrived alongside designer Stella McCartney and singer Miley Cyrus looked stunning in a long burnt sienna frock and a tiara.
Thanks to Livia Firth — who founded the Green Carpet Challenge as part of Eco-Age, a brand consultancy helping fashion businesses incorporate sustainable practices — many celebrities participated in the challenge at the Met Gala by wearing and re-wearing eco-friendly looks.
In the past, actresses like Margot Robbie, Emma Watson, and Lupita Lupita Nyong’o have all gone sustainable at the Met Gala. This surely is the beginning to what we might call a fashion revolution.
