Style Scoop: Olivia Wilde for H&M Conscious Exclusive, Gisele’s Final Walk, Dolce & Gabbana’s Controversial Comments


Olivia Wilde stars in H&M’s Conscious Exclusive campaign wearing an organic silk tuxedo blazer and evening gown from the line. Wilde, who is one of the faces of Revlon, is a supporter of many environmentally friendly charities. “Sustainability has got a bad reputation, especially in fashion,” Wilde said. “I think people assume the clothes will be dull, the fabrics uncomfortable and the design uninspiring. It’s like people think sustainability is a penance. This couldn’t be further from the truth, and the H&M Conscious Exclusive collection shows that sustainability is no compromise on style.” [Women’s Wear Daily]
