Everyone has their own definition of celebrity, (and even who’s hot for that matter—Vandana Shiva’s on the top of my list). And while plenty of the ladies of screen don’t do much beyond promoting themselves to the tabloids, there are also quite a few who are giving back and doing good in very real ways. So here’s our pick of the 9 hottest all-natural female celebrities who fulfill the traditional idea of fame—and engage in projects that help people, planet and promote health too.
Alba, who grew up in front of the camera, is a long-standing proponent of an all-natural, holistic lifestyle. Her latest book, The Honest Life: Living Naturally and True To You, is filled with easy to use tips and great DIY recipes–a very approachable and down-to-Earth green guide.
Publisher of the fantastic vegan and green living site the Kind Life, and face of the affordable, eco-friendly beauty product line, EcoTools (made with responsible materials and recycled plastics), Silverstone is an all-natural celebrity looking to give back.
As an active proponent of a cruelty-free lifestyle–from her vegan diet to wearing vegan shoes on the red carpet, Anne Hawthaway is one of our favorite all-natural celebrities. Did you see her vegan leather knee-high gladiator sandals, custom made by Tom Ford? Badass.
The gorgeous supermodel Miranda Kerr has recently gotten press not just for her insanely sexy looks and cute smile, but for her new line of all-natural beauty products, Kora Organics. Made with only organic and natural ingredients, if it’s good enough for Miranda, it’s good enough for me!
As the Creative Director of Eco Age, and co-collaborator of the Green Carpet Challenge, Livia Firth is stepping up the awareness of eco-luxurious clothing. The Green Carpet Challenge heightens the excitement of award shows and draws attention to red-carpet looks in a new light, by dressing celebs in custom made, eco-friendly designer garments.
Gisele is an all-natural beauty in and of herself, but her line of natural skin care products, Sejaa, seals the deal. Holding her line to the highest standards, the products are sure to “protect and supports your skin’s natural radiance, while also protecting the health and beauty of our environment.”
Since her role in the Harry Potter movies, actress Emma Watson is breaking new ground. In collaboration with Italian designer Alberta Ferretti, Watson has founded Pure Threads, a fashion line that features environmentally friendly dresses. ”The collection is completely organic, from the picking and spinning of our cottons to the washing, weaving and dyeing of our textiles,” says Ferretti.
Everyone who has worked with her always remarks about how Hayek is naturally hot onscreen, but off screen, as a board member of Global Green, she isn’t supporting a hot planet. Ok, completely cheesy but Salma Hayek is active in engaging intelligent solutions to climate change. When she moved to California from Mexico, she has her home outfitted with solar panels.
Beyond her badass gender-bending role playing Bob Dylan in I’m Not There, Blanchett is a strong advocate for natural living, sustainability and alternative energy. It’s rumored she invited Suntech, a solar energy company to install solar panel on the roof of the Sydney Theatre Company, and both she and her husband were big proponents of the Greening the Wharf initiative, a project that installed over 1,900 solar panels. You can even read her green point of view from time to time on the New York Times Green Blog, DotEarth.
