It seems almost every celebrity has their own charity, has adopted an abandoned child, or has encouraged you to make huge donations to charity as regularly as they change their designer shoes. Commendable, definitely. Kind, we think so. Possible for us mortals? Probably not.
I’m not trying to diminish the good work of certain celebrities who really have helped bring serious problems to our attention, or who have spent years working to battle injustice and poverty (Annie Lennox is a personal favourite of mine). I am, however, pointing out that a lot of the work they do is facilitated by their fame and fortune. Good for them, not so good for us.
Having just sprained my ankle, and my foot, I am now largely wheely chair bound for the next week… so prepare for lots of blogging! I’ve been having a hunt for celebrities who have turned their hand to fashion - in a kind way.
There are several collections around at the moment which are either designed, or contributed to, by celebrities, that are made from sustainable fabrics, support fairtrade, or are environmentally friendly. I’ve particularly picked up on Emma Watson’s range for Peopletree. Launched a year ago this month, the range is aimed mostly at teens and young adults, but as the sizes range from 6 to 14, the styles ought to fit most. Even better news
So - you may not be able to compete with Angelina, and adopt a poor child, but you can support the communities from which many abandoned children come from, by adopting some of these beauties into your wardrobe.
Team this with heavy knit tights and boots to bring a dash of spring to the streets, while you brave the current snow and ice!
