In so many ways, Emma Watson is a modern-day princess. The woman is the whole package – brains, beauty and totally committed to doing good for the world. When Emma Watson says she believes in something, she puts her money where her mouth is.
When it came time to premiere the much-anticipated Beauty and the Beast, the actress made sure to slay the red carpet by showcasing causes close to her heart. Her bespoke Emilia Wickstead off-the-shoulder gown was made from end-of-line fabric sourced from a family-run, London business that specialized in couture fabrics and which was made in Italy. Usually these pieces just end up in the trash. It was also created by an all-female team, which seems only right as Watson is also very much a champion of women.
But it wasn’t just the gown that was sustainable and eco-friendly, working with her makeup artist Caroline Barnes, Watson showed off a fresh faced, natural look that was indeed, natural. Ingredients for all the products used were naturally-sourced, eco-friendly and free of animal cruelty. The best part is, she looked radiant, which is probably the best kind of free advertising such brands can get. Makeup artist Barnes was more than happy to list the products in an Instagram post. We’ve rounded them up here (most of them are available online at places such as Net-a-Porter).
