Emma Watson Wows In Burberry And Victoria Beckham For Net-A-Porter

The actress looks stunning modelling the eco-friendly Green Carpet Collection by Christopher Kane, Victoria Beckham and Erdem for Net-a-Porter's THE EDIT

Emma Watson may not be your first choice style icon, but after looking at these stunning images, we guarantee she’ll certainly make your top five. The Harry Potter actress has teamed up with Net-a-Porter to front the brand’s digital magazine THE EDIT, and the results are simply beautiful.

All grown up and without a stray hair in sight, the British actress models an array of gorgeous gowns from the site’s eco-friendly Green Carpet Collection. Pretty AND ethical? We’re in.

Emma was asked to mole the dresses by the brand’s current guest editor, Livia Firth, and talks about the importance of ethical fashion on the red carpet. She says: ‘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.’

When approached by eco campaigner Livia to join the GGC, Emma adds: ‘I was like, “No one’s doing anything like this!” It’s so exciting.

‘It just seemed like [the project] was something I had to do, something I’d been waiting for. Livia’s created a lobbying body to put the pressure on governments and corporations to encourage them to have [ethical responsibility] as their baseline. It’s quite awesome.’

The 23-year-old models dresses by Burberry Prorsum, Christopher Kane, Erdem, Roland Mouret and of course, Victoria Beckham.

She says: ‘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 and hour? It’s hard to talk about this stuff without sounding preachy.’

We think you’re doing just fine, Em. The Green Carpet Challenge collection is available exclusively at Net-A-Porter.com. Read the full interview here.
