Emma Watson's Press Tour Wardrobe Is Amazing For All The Right Reasons

Sustainable fashion has never looked so good.

Emma Watson has won our hearts again. While she is known to most as a talented actress dedicated to the fight for gender equality, she is also a fashion icon. So, we were especially grateful when the star recently announced she would be creating an Instagram account dedicated to all of the outfits she'll be wearing on the Beauty and the Beast Press Tour. So far, the account is populated with just a handful of posts, all of which give us a break-down of Watson's wardrobe. And, true to her activist spirit, all of Watson's choices are environmentally friendly. 

The Paris-born Brit has been posting videos and photos, noting who designed each aspect of her wardrobe and in what way it exemplifies sustainable fashion, in some posts detailing right down to her undies and eyebrow gel. 

While the Watson, formerly known as Hermione from the Harry Potter films,  has attracted major attention as of late for her portrayal of Belle in this new version of the classic fairytale, we're thrilled to see she's using her very public platform to draw attention to a more responsible approach to fashion. For example, this past Sunday Watson donned a stunning Oscar de la Renta jumpsuit at the film's first-ever public screening in Paris. Of the ensemble she wrote, "Co-Creative Directors of @oscardelarenta, created this Jacobian flower-embroidered duchesse satin bustier with an organic silk faille sash and organic wool trousers as part of their first collection... @burberry pumps handmade in Italy with organic silk. Fashion info verified by @ecoage #ecoloves." 

Sunday was the first ever public screening of @beautyandthebeast! We were so happy to surprise the audience in Paris and say “bonjour” in person, especially as this is the country where it was created and Belle’s place of birth 🇫🇷🌹 Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia, the new Co-Creative Directors of @oscardelarenta, created this Jacobian flower-embroidered duchesse satin bustier with an organic silk faille sash and organic wool trousers as part of their first collection. The entire look was made in-house at Oscar de la Renta’s NYC atelier ❤ @burberry pumps handmade in Italy with organic silk.
