From donning vintage gowns to dresses made from recycled water bottles, Emma Watson has always been ahead of her time when it comes to slow, sustainable fashion. Not only has she been integrating sustainability and green outfits into a notoriously wasteful industry, but she is living proof that sustainable fashion can be as luxurious as the next Oscar de la Renta or Versace look.

In 2016, Watson’s sustainable fashion style hit the red carpet at the Met Gala. In collaboration with Eco-Age and Calvin Klein, Watson’s gown was sewn from organic cotton, organic silk, and upcycled water bottles.
Watson has also had a running list of her go-to sustainable brands for years. The luxury designers include Stella McCartney, Catbird, Gabriel Hearst, and Simon Miller. Together, these brands produce red-carpet-ready looks with upcycled plastics and low CO2 emissions as well as water usage.
Watson has also been a vocal supporter of Good On You, a popular resource that rates fashion brands based on their commitment to sustainability and transparency.

“Fashion helps shape our identities,” Watson told Good On You. “What we wear signifies who we are and what we stand for. I support Good On You because I need to know my clothes do not harm our precious planet or its people.”
Watson continued, “Good On You is my benchmark for sustainable fashion. This means that when I’m given a platform to speak about my choice of outfit, I will have a meaningful story to tell. And it’s powerful.”
