Emma Watson might just the coolest star in Hollywood.

The actress took to her Instagram account today to share an inspiring photo from her recent trip to Malawi, Africa, where she was working to promote the United Nations initiative HeForShe that promotes gender equality around the world, and her outfit in the snap is a real-life advertisement for stylish and eco-friendly fashion.

For the occasion, the 26-year-old star opted for a white button-up Tome NYC shirt made from organic cotton that she paired with a black silk Zady midi skirt ($180, zady.com) which is created using a more sustainable process. The U.N. Women Goodwill Ambassador finished off her ensemble with a chic pair of ankle strap Nisolo sandals that are ethically produced.

"I had the most amazing day in Malawi today," the actress wrote alongside the image. "Thank you President Mutharika for being a #HeForShe Impact Champion and for making gender equality a priority in your Government! Thank you to all the traditional leaders who are implementing President Mutharika's policies - especially Chief Kachindamoto (she’s in the photo with me, she’s formidable and has been nicknamed 'The Terminator'!). She gave me such a warm welcome today. She has implemented the annulment of so many child marriages and restored the futures of these girls. With the help and collaboration of her local chiefs, mothers’ groups and religious leaders she has managed to annul almost 1500 child marriages, sending the girls back to school. President Mutharika has committed to make child marriage a thing of the past in Malawi within the next five years. It was amazing to be on the ground with @UNWomen and Chief Kachindamoto to witness their work!"

It was amazing to be on the ground with @UNWomen and Chief Kachindamoto to witness their work! My @tomenyc white shirt is made from organic cotton and is part of their 'White Shirt Project’ campaign. The project was conceived in 2014 to raise funds and awareness for the Freedom for All charity, which is fighting human trafficking and modern day slavery. The silk skirt is by @zady. Zady partnered with @cocccon_prakesh, founded in 2012 by Chandra Prakash Jha, a fashion designer who wanted to help his community through fairer wages and a safer, more sustainable process. Instead of using toxic pesticides on the plants that the silkworm caterpillars eat, the farmers protect the trees by covering them with mosquito nets to protect the leaves from harmful birds and insects. Then the silk is brought to New York where expert sewers in New York’s famed Garment District create each piece. Sandals by @nisoloshoes. The sandals were made by a team of expert shoemakers in Trujillo, Peru in a factory owned and operated by Nisolo that celebrates fair trade wages, safe working conditions, healthcare for all employees, and financial literacy & wellness training.
