AT THE MOMA Ninth Annual Film Benefit, actress and UN Global Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson paired her little black dress with shoes by Filipina designer and restaurateur Bianca Moran.

Bianca was ecstatic learning that the actress wore the Hey Simone heels, a pair from Bianca’s latest collection.

“Tuesday night was pretty monumental for me, for @susistudio. The inspiring @emmawatson wore our shoes to Chanel’s film benefit at MoMA. Someone pinch me. #LongLiveHermione,” Bianca said in an Instagram post.

Bianca is the creative director of SUSI Studio, where the brand takes pride for designing sustainable vegan footwear for the modern woman, inspiring “compassion towards humanity, animals, and the environment through creativity.”

The Hey Simone pair, with three-inch heels, is made with recycled microsuede and rubber and costs $185 (around P9,189).

The pair is inspired by French philosopher and
feminist Simone de Beauvoir, according to the website of SUSI Studio.

“Hey Simone is designed for women on their never-ending quest for form and function with just the right amount of lift,” said the Los Angeles-based lifestyle company.

Aside from being an outspoken feminist, Emma 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.

It 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.
