You’ll Never Guess How Affordable Bryce Dallas Howard’s SAG Awards Dress Was
Bryce Dallas Howard continues to prove that she’s just like us. The Black Mirror actress has been super honest about frequenting department stores in the past to find gowns when she needs something fancy schmancy. She wore that navy blue Jenny Packham from Neiman Marcus to the Golden Globes 2017, then a mustard Topshop maxi dress to the People’s Choice Awards, and last night she took to the Screen Actors Guild Awards in a Dress the Population stunner.
Turns out, this is just the easiest way for her to have several options at her fingertips. “I like having lots of options for a size six, as opposed to maybe one option,” she said. “I always go to the department store for this kind of stuff.”
Bryce, whose lips popped with Chanel Crayon de Colour Jumbo Longwear Lip Crayon in Rouge Corail, wore the brand’s Harper style, a ruby sequined V-neck gown that costs $309. But the affordable retail price isn’t the best part about Dress the Population.
Every month, founder Franklin Morales picks a garment from his collection and donates five percent of its online sales to whatever charity customers and employees vote on. This month, half of the proceeds of the company’s Teresa gown will go to The Trevor Project, a national 24-hour toll-free confidential suicide hotline.
Good on Bryce for highlighting a brand that not only looks good but feels good to support too.
