An iconic event for celebrities and fashion, the 2018 Met Gala red carpet did not disappoint. Following this year’s theme, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” celebrities flaunted extravagant looks, like Katy Perry’s giant angel wings, and Rihanna’s take on Catholic vestment, but it also gave celebrities who care about sustainable fashion a visibly ethical platform.
The Green Carpet Challenge
Founded by fashion brand consultancy firm, Eco Age who helps fashion businesses adopt sustainable practices, The Green Carpet Challenge is a movement that calls on celebrities to walk the red carpet in sustainable fashion. It gives ethical fashion a highly visible platform that showcases celebrities, loved by fans everywhere, looking beautiful in gowns and outfits that are equally stylish and sustainable.

Gisele is an active supporter of ethical fashion, and she’s participated in The Green Carpet Challenge before. At this year’s Met Gala Gisele wore a stunning Versace dress made of 100% GOTS silk, a title that verifies the material is wholly organic and no toxic chemicals have been used in its creation. Even the zipper of Gisele’s dress is made of recycled plastic. Congrats to Gisele for looking gorgeous in a gown that looks as good on her as it is for our environment.
Stella, Miley, and Paris in McCartney original sustainable fashion designs
Stella McCartney, Miley Cyrus, and Paris Jackson all wore sustainable fashion looks at the 2018 Met Gala, and the three women are certainly not strangers to the ethical fashion movement. Stella McCartney famously designs ethical looks and has been doing it for years. The fashion brand is passionate about sustainability and ethics as they refuse to use leather or fur and believe in using cutting-edge technology that pushes towards circularity to protect our environment. Miley, Paris, and Stella paired glamour with sustainability in ethical McCartney designs.

She looks stunning in a black floor-length McCartney gown with beautiful draping detail in the front and a jaw-dropping open back.
