We've been doing the future our whole lives. Sweet.

Last week, a bunch of rich people dressed up in costumes to try and one-up each other at the Met Gala — a fundraising event that benefits the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York City, often considered to be "fashion's biggest night." It's a who's who of whatever.

Every outlet from one corner of the Internet to Timbuktu focuses entirely on the wild attire of the celebrities, some classy, some grotesque, but all worn in hopes of making headlines. Emma Watson, god love her, was really the only one that struck our fancy, because a fashion event like this is so out of our wheelhouse it's not even appropriate to pretend to care. But, can we just take a moment to reflect on how out of touch she sounds when CNN interviews her about the night's "sustainable gown"?

Around the minute mark, Watson is in the midst of explaining the ideas she and her designer had with the gown. It's made from recycled water bottles, so good on her for that, but then she goes on to say that she, "tried to create a dress with my stylist which had lots of different elements, which I would be able to reuse and re-wear, so our hope is that, I would wear the trousers underneath the skirt again, I would wear the bustier again, the skirt I will wear it again. For me, that's the future of fashion."


So wearing pants twice is the future of fashion now? Re-wearing clothing is the new worldly answer to conflict? We have one nice pair of pants that comes out at every wedding we've ever attended and will attend in the future, consider us ahead of the curve. 

We know she likely didn't mean it like it sounded (we hope), but it would be nice if once in a while celebrities would have a fucking clue what the real world is like.
