Natalie Portman Wins the Oscar for Black Swan, and Our Hearts for Green Dress

H&M Conscious Collection

Did you watch the Oscars?  Everyone primped and primed to perfection.  And while all of the ladies were lovely (how gorgeous was Halle Berry’s gown?), the night belonged to Natalie Portman who won Best Actress for her portrayal of a ballerina in Black Swan.  She was radiant as she accepted her Oscar in a deep purple Rodarte gown.

But Natalie went for a much more natural look for the Pre-Oscar party.  The Academy-award winning actress donned a white cotton dress from H&M’s Conscious Collection line.  The eco-friendly line is for women, men, and children and is made from “enviromentally – adapted and greener materials such as organic cotton, Tencel® and recycled polyester”.  And, this keeps getting better, priced super affordably.  The frock Natalie wore was only $49.95!

This star is not just going for show, but takes her eco-conscious lifestyle very seriously – she is vegan, concerned about animal rights, and wears a conflict-free diamond engagement ring. And with a baby on the way, she is sure to be exploring all sorts of new environmentally friendly issues.  Green diapers and nontoxic baby care products, for starters?  Ask me Natalie, I can help!

This is one truly natural beauty we are glad to see take home Oscar!

  1. I think it is great that H&M is trying to be environmentally consious, but aren’t the clothes still made in factories in China? $50 sounds pricey for H&M constructed clothing. If you wear a dress a few times and it falls apart and you have to replace it, wouldn’t it have been more green to buy one moderately priced dress that will last for years?

    • That’s a really good point. Baby steps are great, but it’s definitely important to keep the whole process in mind. Better yet: maybe buying fewer pieces of clothing, but saving up for things that are made well and eco-friendly too!

      • I would love to say that I invest wisely in classic pieces that last a really long time. The truth is that I have a different idea of what I would like to wear practically every season. Certain staples last, but overall I like to see a few new items regularly. If i could get a $50 dress that looks that pretty AND is eco? Yep, I would grab it. But that is just me;)…
