Style Spotlight: Emma Watson

Emma Watson as Hermonie Granger
in the first Harry Potter movie

Emma Watson captured our attention as the brainy and adorable Hermonie Granger in the theatrical version of Harry Potter. Since then we've had the opportunity to watch her grow up and develop her sense of style. Now she has captured our hearts with her views on modesty. Our favorite quote is:
"I find the whole concept of being ' sexy' embarrassing and confusing. If I do an interview with photographs people desperately want to change me- dye my hair blonder, pluck my eyebrows, give me fringe. Then there is the choice of clothes. I know everyone wants a picture of me in a mini-skirt. But that's not me. I feel uncomfortable. I'd never go out in a mini-skirt. It's nothing to to with protecting the Hermione image. I wouldn't do that. Personally, I don't actually think it's ever that sexy. What's sexy about saying, 'I'm here with my boobs out and a short skirt, have a lot at everything I've got?' My idea of sexy is that less is more. The less you reveal the more people can wonder."

Nothing left to say! Enjoy these looks from the lovely Emma Watson.

DKNY Launches a Modest Collection

long sleeve maxi dresses and long sleeve jumpsuit from DKNY available to buy purchase for sale at Mode-sty

This summer the fashion brand Donna Karen New York (DKNY) created its first collection of modest styles. The reason we're excited is because DKNY's capsule collection is a step towards fulfilling Mode-sty vision: to allow modest women to walk into any store and buy the same mainstream brands as everyone else but with the coverage modest women expect. We want access to the same quality, designs, and convenience but we choose to have more coverage from our garments. No more obscure specialty "modest" boutiques, no more layering, no more costly and time consuming alterations.
