Emma Watson, best known for her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series, looks radiant on the cover of this week’s The Edit magazine, donning a sustainably produced dress.

Watson took part in the Green Carpet Challenge by modelling eco-friendly gowns from five different designers.

The 23-year-old actress told the magazine, “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… It just seemed like [the project] was something I had to do, something I’d been waiting for.”

Victoria Beckham was among the designers involved in the challenge. “I really feel that it is an issue that we all as designers are more and more aware of,” Beckham said. “The work that the GCC is doing has provided us with a unique opportunity to explore eco-friendly fabrics and present them as viable options within our collections.”

Watson has always been a huge proponent of fairly traded goods.

In the past, the actress and style icon collaborated with the UK brand People Tree on an eco-friendly clothing line. She also teamed up with Alberta Ferretti to bring eco fashion to the catwalks.

“Maybe there would be fewer problems if we were really conscious of where and how things were made,” she said. 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 an hour?”

The other designers that took part in the challenge are Erdem, Christopher Bailey, Christopher Kane and Roland Mouret.
