Emma Watson has slayed basically ever since we first met her.
First, she played heroic intellect Hermione in the Harry Potter films. Then she made powerful feminist statements as UN Women Goodwill Ambassador. Next, she attended the Women’s March on Washington with her mom.
And just in case you forgot about how talented she is, her acting and singing has taken us by storm with every single Beauty and the Beast promo that comes out.
Now she is proving her role-model worthiness once again by completing the Beauty and the Beast press tour clad in completely sustainable outfits, as documented by the new Instagram account The Press Tour.
Bonjour Paris! Coat is from @stellamccartney, the world’s first luxury brand that is committed to producing products that do not use leather, skins, feathers or fur. Instead, Stella has spent years developing ways of using materials such as regenerated cashmere, recycled fabrics, organic cotton and forest-friendly fabrics. Jumper is from @filippa_k, a Swedish brand committed to four Rs: reducing, repairing, reusing and recycling. Tee by @boodywear, a brand that produces basics made with certified organic bamboo, produced using computerised 3D knitting, so no fabric is wasted. Its factories are zero-waste and have a closed loop system to stop any water being wasted. Bespoke beret by @maisonmichel made with organic cotton. Shoes are @goodguysdontwearleather. The brand doesnt use any animal products in its collections. Fashion info verified by @ecoage #ecoloves
This new Instagram venture was introduced on Emma Watson’s Instagram. She shares that she started the account to give fans a glimpse at what happens behind the scenes during the press tour.
“It takes a village!” she says.
There are only four posts on The Press Tour Instagram so far, but they all feature Watson with a fresh new look.
In the caption of each photo is a lengthy description of all the clothing and brands that Watson is wearing, accompanied with the reason behind why.
In one post, Watson is shown wearing a blue Louis Vuitton dress. According to the caption, the fabric of the dress was created from plastic bottles and processed sustainably.
Today was a brilliant day of interviews, press conferences and photoshoots for @beautyandthebeast in France. We snuck out of the junket and onto the roof of the hotel to capture these shots against the beautiful Paris skyline. Custom @louisvuitton dress designed by @nicolasghesquiere. The dress fabric is Newlife recycled polyester, created from used plastic bottles. These are sourced, mechanically processed and spun into yarns in Italy, with a fully traceable supply chain. This saves energy and reduces CO2 emissions compared to creating brand new polyester fibre. The arm band was created in a carbon-neutral mill. Dress validated by @ecoage #ecoloves
In another post, a photo montage of Watson is shown. She is doing normal people things, like petting a fluffy cat, reading at a cafe and napping on a train.
The caption describes the WORON brand clothing she’s wearing, where “each underwear garment is made from Lenzing Modal fabric, a fibre made from beech wood sourced from sustainable forestry plantations in Europe.”
It even goes so far to describe her socks, by a brand that “produces underwear made with certified organic bamboo, produced using computerised 3D knitting, so no fabric is wasted.”
