A confident Trump looks past Indiana

A confident Trump looks past IndianaCARMEL, Ind.—Indiana was supposed to be the state that could potentially derail Donald Trump’s insurgent bid for the Republican presidential nomination. Speaking to a capacity crowd of nearly 1,800 people, Trump, with his characteristic bravado, touted his six straight primary wins — and predicted he would easily claim yet another, pointing to polls that show him with a wide lead in Indiana heading into Tuesday’s vote. “Boom, boom, boom — we’re knocking them out like corn flakes,” Trump declared.

According to Crystal Tate, an employee at the clinic, usually a cat in Duchess's situation would have been euthanized. But by chance, the staff decided to take a chance and repair her broken jaw by wiring it, resulting in the removal of most of her teeth.

Emma Watson's Met Gala Outfit Was Made Out Of Recycled Plastic Bottles

Well, not only is it beautiful but it's also environmentally friendly as it's actually made out of recycled plastic bottles. Yes, really.

Facebook: emmawatson

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 repurpose 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 repurpose 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

I hope you like it! The ultimate #30Wears! ‪#‎MetGala2016‬
