Anne Hathaway wears $15 dress to promote Colossal

The star set herself a challenge to stick to sustainable clothing for her Colossal press tour.

Actress Anne Hathaway proved fashion doesn't always have to come at a price after wearing a $15 (£12) vintage dress for a U.S. TV interview.

The Les Miserables star modelled a black V-neck gown with a colourful flower design as she sat down for a chat with newswoman Robin Roberts on Good Morning America on Monday (17Apr17), and Anne admitted her outfit was a really thrifty find.

"This is a $15 flea market dress," she smiled, before explaining her reason for snubbing her usual designer wardrobe.

"I'm trying to be more sustainable with my fashion choices so I'm trying to wear vintage wherever I can," she said.

Anne's stylist, Penny Lovell, previously revealed she and the Oscar winner had set themselves the challenge of finding sustainable pieces for the actress' Colossal movie promotional tour.

In an Instagram post on 28 March (17), Penny shared a video clip of Anne twirling for the camera in a long-sleeved little black dress, and captioned it, "Repost from @annehathaway wearing a $20 Rosebowl flea market dress. Let's do this @sheiscolossal press day (with @louboutinworld pumps and @plattboutiquejewelry jewels)".

"All of her choices for this tour are sustainable and will be either vintage pieces or archival runway looks," Lovell added.

After Monday's TV interview, the style guru shared two side-by-side snaps of Anne in her latest low-cost look.

"Bringing Spring @annehathaway this morning at @goodmorningamerica wearing a vintage flea market dress I found about ten years ago which cost $15," Lovell wrote, "paired with a vintage @gucci belt from @recessla and borrowed earrings @roxanneassoulin @louboutinworld pumps".

Anne isn't the first female celebrity to go green with her promo tour fashion picks - Emma Watson is also known for her eco-friendly and sustainable clothing choices, and was stunned to learn a pair of earrings she wore for an appearance on America's The Ellen DeGeneres Show last month (Mar17) was made from recycled bombs.

Everything the former Harry Potter star wore as she promoted her new film Beauty and the Beast was sustainable and recycled.
