Get The Look: Celebrities That Do Good

Who says you can’t look good while you’re making things happen? We think it’s possible to do both, and what’s more, have fun shopping labels which are also working hard to act ethically.

More and more designers are building brands which are as sustainable as they are luxurious, so we’ve pulled together an edit of our favourite looks from our Positive Luxury #brandstotrust – and paired them with the smart, stylish women who are currently inspiring us to help create some positive change in the world.

ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITELEY

Businesswoman, model and mother Rosie is a key supporter of charity Unicef UK, with whom she’s travelled to Lesotho in southern Africa to work with families hit by drought and food crises. She wrote about her experiences for British Vogue. She’s known for sparkling at premieres and parties – our red-carpet jewellery pick for glamourous Rosie is this beautiful pair of mindfully-sourced diamond earrings by Forevermark.

MICHELLE OBAMA

Lawyer Michelle Obama is the driving force behind a number of schemes aimed at helping disadvantaged children build better lives for themselves, whether through sport, art or education. One of her projects is the Reach Higher initiative, which works to encourage kids to pursue higher education. The former First Lady also knows how to work a ball gown – we loved her bold red dress for President Obama’s inauguration ball. For a future event calling for a show-stopping look, we think this Dagny Ella dress would be a perfect match for her strong, elegant style.

EMMA WATSON

In recent years, Emma Watson has not only worked hard to shake off her childhood role of Harry Potter’s Hermione – she has also graduated from university, and has been a vocal backer of the UN’s #HeforShe campaign to support gender equality. Emma also uses her Instagram profile to highlight sustainable, ethical ways to dress for red-carpet events. For a speaking event, we’d dress her in this cream Loewe cropped tailored trouser and and J Cavallo bustier combination, for a modern power look that still feels youthful.

JESSICA CHASTAIN

Not only a double Oscar nominee and a Cannes Film Festival juror, Jessica Chastain is a key activist behind the #TimesUp movement to fight sexual harrassment in the film industry. This silk jacquard Gabriela Hearst piece would be a perfect fit for her pared-back, sleek red-carpet style. We’d add some strappy heels and a few simple accessories for a clean, polished look.

THANDIE NEWTON

Westworld star Thandie Newton is a strong advocate for greater inclusivity in the beauty industry – check out her website, ThandieKay, which she runs with makeup artist maestro Kay Montano. The University of Cambridge graduate is also vocal about women’s rights within the workplace. When it comes to event dressing, we love her bright, colourful aesthetic – for a summer event, we’d match her with this Kenzo ‘Jackie’ pleated dress.
