Maggie Gyllenhaal is no stranger to Ecorazzi — having graced these pages supporting climate change organizations, organic cloth diapers, charities, and other worthy initiatives. Now, we can also place her under ethical fashion due to recent hosting gig at the eco-friendly catwalk dubbed “Fashionably Natural”.

Used as the opener to kick off LA’s Spring ’09 Fashion Week, the event highlighted spring collections crafted from all-natural and environmentally responsible textiles. Four new green designers were introduced by Maggie, including Brigid Catiis, Popomomo, The Battalion and Velvet Leaf.

“I didn’t know much about this at all until SoyJoy asked me to do this,” Gyllenhaal told ET. “I kind of thought that eco-friendly clothes meant misshapen hemp sweaters – you know, from like 1992 or something. I would not have hosted that fashion show.”

Obviously, Maggie has now come around after witnessing the beautiful clothes on display at SoyJoy’s Fashionably Natural.

    Hi!

    I’m an eco fashion designer from London and I would like to send some clothes to Maggie G. I think my style would really suit her. Do you know how I can get hold of her/her agent?
