conscientious copycat: emma watson at the oscars

Though Emma Watson’s Oscars look may have been a bit too casual for the event, I really appreciated the minimalist style with a formal twist. I also loved the dress over pants thing she did at the Golden Globes. Both looks are unique and original, and probably a great deal more comfortable than what most female attendees wore.

I copied her look by pairing a sparkly bodycon dress (made in the usa) with a vintage mermaid maxi skirt. The earrings are fair trade via Ten Thousand Villages, the shoes and clutch are handmade, and the lipstick is fair trade, organic. For a few hundred dollars, you can get an ethical outfit that looks pretty similar to red carpet couture.

    This is such a great post! When I watched the Oscars, I wondered if there might be any fair trade or ethical options for the actresses, like maybe for Angelina Jolie and others who are interested in humanitarian work.

      Thanks. I don’t normally post about celebrities, but the Oscars are fun to watch. Emma Watson did a collaboration with People Tree a couple years ago, so I wonder what her shopping practices are.
