Emma Watson and Livia Firth weren’t the only ones stumping for sustainable fashion at the Met Gala in New York City on Sunday. In a sartorial nod to Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology, the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute’s latest exhibit, Pixels star Michelle Monaghan wore a ruffled vegan-leather ensemble embellished with sequins made from recycled beer cans. “It’s a completely ethical, vegan look, and made in New York, made by hand,” Karla Welch, Monaghan’s stylist, told Vanity Fair. Custom-made by local designer Rosie Assoulin, the dress draws upon the show’s vision of the future for inspiration, albeit one based on hope rather than dystopian despair.
