In light of International Women's Day 2017, we're recognizing Emma Watson as she redefines style, education and feminism with her unique inspirational philosophy.
In addition to her fight for gender equality, Emma started a feminist book club called "Our Shared Shelf" and it's dedicated to reading female empowering books, such as Gloria Steinem’s “My Life on the Road,” Alice Walker’s “The Color Purple". Emma is on a mission to learn as much as possible about feminism and gender equality and to inspire others to do the same. For a fun twist, Emma hides books in London subway stations. Some of the books she hides include her own hand-written messages inside, encouraging others to read the books, exchange thoughts online, and hide the book for someone else to find.
In a recent photoshoot with Vanity Fair magazine, Emma posed for a revealing picture, in which her breasts were partially exposed. Emma received criticism from feminist men and women alike. Emma believes that the excessive criticism comes from a misunderstanding of what feminism truly is. She said, “Feminism is about giving women choice. Feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women with. It’s about freedom, it’s about liberation, it’s about equality."
At the Met Gala, Emma Watson wore a dress made from recycled fabrics. The fabric was woven from recycled plastic bottles. The dress had organic cotton and zippers made from recycled materials. On her Facebook, Emma posted “It is my intention to repurpose elements of the gown for future use. The trousers can be worn on their own, as can the bustier, the train can be used for a future red carpet look… I’m looking forward to experimenting with this. Truly beautiful things should be worn again and again and again.”
We love that Emma is making a positive difference in the world, promoting a positive change in feminism, environmental awareness, and education.
We open the 2017 new year with haute couture at the Golden Globes. Everybody is talking about the mesmerizing designer gowns and who-wore-what. Yellow appeared to be the most popular color this year, worn by Natalie Portman, Viola Davis, Reese Witherspoon and Emily Ratajkowski. But the red carpet saw diverse looks and fabrics, (no meat dress this time) but all sorts of sequins and ruffles and more!
The 10 most beautifully dressed stars at the Golden Globes wore:
Jessica Biel - This girl is unstoppable, she rocked both the thigh-high slit and the plunging neckline. Biel was born to wear this Elie Saab gown!
Evan Rachel Wood - A real lady can rock a pantsuit like no one else. Wood announced she wouldn't wear a dress, to show young girls that they don't have to wear dresses.
Emma Stone - Stone takes classy chique o a whole new level. Stone's is wearing a custom designed Valentino gown with silver shimmering stars (yes, stars!)
