Hollywood married duo John Krasinski and Emily Blunt showed up to the 2013 Met Gala in eco-friendly red carpet designs.
“The Office” star sported a Tom Ford sustainable tuxedo, while his wife wore a beautiful black eco-friendly gown designed by Carolina Herrera and made from recycled fabrics from the 1940s and ’60s, the Daily Star reports.
“I’m so excited that Carolina Herrera has created this gown for me with elegance and ethics in mind. It’s gorgeous and edgy and it thrills me to be a part of a fashion moment that hasn’t compromised itself in creativity yet has the important story of using all sustainable fabrics and techniques,” Blunt said.
Krasinski and Blunt wore the designs as part of Livia Firth’s Green Carpet Challenge, which encourages all stars to wear eco-friendly suits and dresses at red carpet affairs.
This isn’t the first time the couple has gone green. In 2012, they purchased an eco-friendly house that runs on renewable energy and has giant solar panels.
The lovely couple definitely made a statement at New York’s annual Costume Institute Gala held at the Metropolitan of Art.
