Emma Watson for label People Tree

emma watson people tree Actress Emma Watson is modelling for ethical fashion brand People Tree for another season.

Fair Trade champions People Tree have just released pics of the Harry Potter starlet posing for the second collection of pieces that Emma has contributed to.

Already in stores, the range features everything from pretty dresses and slouchy T-shirts to cool checked shirts and chunky knits, all made, of course, from Fair Trade fabrics.

Emma hasn’t designed the collection but she has taken her role as collaborator very seriously. She even accompanied People Tree’s founder, Safia Minney, on a trip to Bangladesh where she got to see the difference between factories in the slums and the Fair Trade factories where the label makes its clothes. ‘Having seen the slums in Dhaka and the conditions in which these people live and work to produce ‘fast fashion’, I would say to those people that this is not the way we should be making clothes in the modern world,’ she said. ‘These workers have no rights and work every hour of the day just to feed their families. Fair Trade gives families the option to stay together, rather than one or both parents having to move to cities, and they are paid a fair wage. It empowers people and doesn’t take away their dignity.’

It’s not the only ethical clothing project that Emma is involved in – she’s also working on an organic clothing range with Alberta Ferretti which is set to make its debut in the coming months.

Christian Dior at Paris Fashion Week

John Galliano dazzled Dior’s growing fan-base of high-profile, young, rich celebrity customers with an African inspired collection at Paris Fashion Week…

The Dior spring/summer 2009 collection strode down a Paris catwalk earlier today to a tribal beat, with the models balanced on six-inch, metal “fertility goddess” heels as high as their sculptural, plaited head-dresses.

The collection was inspired by “”my memories of many trips, all over Africa” by Dior’s prolific British designer, John Galliano, and drew on earthy, sensual references.

The clothes were obviously designed to appeal to Dior’s growing fan-base of high-profile, young, rich celebrity customers, including the pop singers Katy Perry and Lily Allen and the actresses Emma Watson and Eva Green, who sat front row with the likes of former supermodel, Stephanie Seymour, the Oscar-winning, French actress Marion Cotillard and the burlesque star, Dita Von Teese.

The dresses were amongst the shortest and sexiest ever seen on a Dior catwalk; flipping flirtatiously at mid-thigh in acid-yellow, orange, fuschia and delphinium blue organza and chiffon – and conspicuously see-through; although thoughtfully accessorized with matching, knitted hot-pants.

Bustiers made of coloured python-skin, teamed with flippy micro-skirts, in bark-printed chiffon or embellished with cowrie shells, brass discs and crystals, along with corset-tops in stingray, worn with hug-me-tight black leggings, added to the exotic mood of tribal-chic.

But Galliano – ever with an eye on the cash register and mindful of the fact Dior reported a 1.54 billion Euro profit for the first half of this year – did not neglect his more conservative clients.

Here, he moved into a quieter ‘comfort zone’ of fashion, offering superbly-tailored, Dior ‘Bar’ jackets in fine wool; double-breasted, “flying” jackets; and belted, “lantern-sleeve” jackets; shown with crisp shorts or pretty, pleated skirts in polka-dotted or plain chiffon, in a palette of beige, grey, black, cream and soft pastels.

The evening gowns, although as diaphanous as the cocktail frocks – “but more choice in the showroom”, Galliano promised backstage – were muted in terms of colour, with long skirts of pastel and Dior grey chiffon, panelled with ribbons of lace or with tiers of pleats from thigh to knee.

But the tribal chic note resounded with the chain-mail halters, gilt-studded stingray bodices and cowrie-shell embroidered leather bustiers, worn with silver metal chokers made up of fertility goddess figurines.

Teen style icons.

Just take a moment to think back to your own teen style. Well, as for me, I can’t look at some of my teenage pics.

They’re awful! Especially the one featuring me in that purple dress I put on for my best friend’s birthday. Yuck!

Anyway, most teens face similar clothing problems.

Teenagehood is the time you start looking for your style, it’s the time you make ashion mistakes and learn the right things about your style preferences. It’s the time of stylish ups and downs.

When it concerns stars, and teen stars in particular, they are short of time for thinking: they need to rush to the red carpet!

These teens can feel no shame looking back on their teen style. Let’s check out some under – aged celebrities who can be taken for style icons:

Let’s take Harry Potter cutie Emma Watson.

She’s only 17 but it’s obvious she’s got an eye for couture that turned her into a real princess of style.

High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens, 19, can’t do without super glam gowns.

We must not forget 19-year old superstar Rihanna. She’s young but promising. She’s got a musical ear (thank you Jay-Z for showing her to the world!) and a huge sense of style

(I just wonder is it her stylist or her parents I should thank for it?)
