Filipina designer and restaurateur Bianca Moran was ecstatic upon learning that actress and United Nations Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson wore the Hey Simone heels, a pair from Moran’s latest collection.
Watson attended the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) 9th Annual Film Benefit wearing a little black dress paired with the heels.
The Hey Simone pair, with 3-inch heels, is made with recycled microsuede and rubber and costs $185.
According to the SUSI Studio website, the Hey Simone heels is inspired by the French philosopher and feminist Simone de Beauvoir
SUSI Studio also prides itself for designing sustainable vegan footwear for the modern woman, inspiring “compassion towards humanity, animals, and the environment through creativity.”
Aside from being an outspoken feminist, Watson has also been known for taking a step towards fashion revolution.
In this year’s Met Gala, she participated in the Green Carpet Challenge—a movement that works with stars and iconic designers to promote sustainable style on the red carpet—by proudly wearing a Calvin Klein-Eco-Age gown, which was “crafted from three different fabrics, all woven from yarns made from recycled plastic bottles.”
“Plastic is one of the biggest pollutants on the planet. Being able to repurpose this waste and incorporate it into my gown for the #MetGala proves the power that creativity, technology and fashion can have by working together,” the actress said.
