Emma Watson Covers 'The Edit' in Sustainably Produced Dress

Emma Watson Covers 'The Edit' in Sustainably Produced Dress

Emma Watson looks gorgeous on the cover of The Edit‘s latest issue featuring sustainably produced gowns for her Green Carpet Challenge.

Here is what the 23-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On participating in the Green Carpet Challenge: “I’ve always had this huge problem. I would love to wear garments that are ethically sourced, but there aren’t enough options for me to be able to do that realistically… It just seemed like [the project] was something I had to do, something I’d been waiting for.”

On trying to solve the problem: “Maybe there would be fewer problems if we were really conscious of where and how things were made. We don’t support slave labor in this country, so we shouldn’t support those conditions in other countries. I can’t wrap my head around why ethical clothing is a specialty and not a base standard. Why is it special to have something you know wasn’t made under terrible conditions by a 12-year-old girl for 20 pence an hour?”

On prepping for the red carpet: “Getting ready for an event can feel like a lot of pressure. You have to consider, ‘Will people see up my skirt? If a flash goes off, can you see through this?’ So I’ll do a test sitting, a test standing… It’s nerve-wracking. People really scrutinize… On the red carpet, I’m usually in so much discomfort – my shoes are uncomfortable, I can’t breathe in the dress. I don’t compromise like that in my everyday style.”

    i love her, so classy

  • Danielle

    Emma Watson is gorgeous

  • Chris

    Most celebrities only do interviews to promote projects they are doing so they can get paid, this one wasn’t. About 90% of it focused on ethical clothing. She didn’t have to do this, she chose to and I tip my hat to her for that.

  • Kate

    She’s amazing… such an inspiration! Good to know there are excellent role models for young ladies too since there seems to be a lot of famous young trash celebs out there these days…

    I love Emma and those dresses are absolutely gorgeous

  • ariadne

    She’s so beautiful! I love the fact that she’s into eco-friendly clothing.

  • cici

    She was ambassador of People Tree for three years, but she never wore any of the clothes. Because of that the line flopped. Why support something if you’re not going to wear it? I think she doesn’t really care about Fair Trade, but she does it for her image. Now she can wear designer clothes AND talk about Fair Trade. WIN WIN. Smart move Emma.
