Hello Emma fans, we hope you are all safe! With the lack of news due to the pandemic, we thought it could be a good idea to make a fun post about the MET Gala! For those of you who don’t know, the MET Gala is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. It’s kind of a big thing in the United States, and Emma has attended the big event three times now. This year’s gala would be happening today, but, given everything that is happening, it has been delayed. For that reason, we thought of pulling a Hermione Granger and using our time turner, traveling to the past and looking back at Emma’s looks!

“American Woman: Fashioning A National Identity” Costume Institute Gala

The first time Emma attended the MET Gala was in 2010, looking extremely beautiful in a white custom-made Burberry dress. She was joined by Burberry Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey. 2010 was the year when Burberry shined, as they not only styled Emma, but also many other celebrities such as Rosie Huntington Whiteley, Claire Danes, Hugh Dancy and Daniel Craig.

As for the theme? “The exhibition explores developing perceptions of the modern American woman from the 1890s to the 1940s, and how they have affected the way American women are seen today. Focusing on archetypes of American femininity through dress, the exhibition reveals how the American woman initiated style revolutions that mirrored her social, political, and sartorial emancipation.”

“PUNK: Chaos To Couture” Costume Institute Gala

She made TIME Style “Stand Out Looks” list at 2013‘s gala, wearing a cutout, mid-driff-baring Prabal Gurung black dress. A simple nod to the PUNK theme, a look that was just very Emma due to its sophistication. It was a riské move, but one that made her stand out (and we say that in a good way)! We should also note her hair and make-up: slicked back and low-key. All the focus was on her beautiful gown.

As for the theme?PUNK: Chaos to Couture examines punk’s impact on high fashion from the movement’s birth in the early 1970s through its continuing influence today. Featuring approximately one hundred designs for men and women, the exhibition includes original punk garments and recent, directional fashion to illustrate how haute couture and ready-to-wear borrow punk’s visual symbols.”

“Manus X Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology” Costume Institute Gala

Queen of the Ball! Emma made sure to not disappoint with her look for the 2016 edition of MET Gala, named one of the best in various publications such as W, TIME, and Glamour (that also made an honorable mention to her 2013 Prabal Gurung gown). Emma stole the night in a pants-dress combo black-and-white by Calvin Klein, with a little twist: the outfit was made out of recycled plastic bottles! She posed with actresses Lupita Nyong’o and Margot Robbie, who were also wearing gowns made out of sustainable elements. Emma shared on her Official Facebook Page some words on her collaboration with Calvin Klein and Eco Age, as you can read below:

Thank you Calvin Klein & Eco Age for collaborating with me and creating the most amazing gown. I am proud to say it is truly sustainable and represents a connection between myself and all the people in the supply chain who played a role in creating it.

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 re-purpose 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, even the components that you can’t see. The zippers on the gown are made from recycled materials and the inner bustier has been crafted from organic cotton. Conventional cotton is one of the highest impact crops, using more chemicals than any other crop in the world. Organic cotton on the other hand, is grown without the use of the most harmful chemicals and is therefore better for the environment and people working with 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 re-purpose elements of the gown for future use. 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. ‪#‎30wears‬

As for the theme? “With more than 170 ensembles dating from the early 20th century to the present, the exhibition addresses the founding of the haute couture in the 19th century, when the sewing machine was invented, and the emergence of a distinction between the hand (manus) and the machine (machina) at the onset of mass production. It explores this ongoing dichotomy, in which hand and machine are presented as discordant tools in the creative process, and questions the relationship and distinction between haute couture and ready-to-wear.”
