Bryce Dallas Howard: None the worse for wearing

Okay, so it’s not a Salvation Army cast-off, or even a Wal-Mart special.  Nevertheless, the $309 gown that Bryce Dallas Howard wore to this year’s SAG Awards is a giant step in the right direction.

No need to be dressed to the hilt for acknowledgement as a fine actress.  Howard’s performances in Netflix’s Black Mirror should rate higher than chiffon and lace. 

The red-sequined Dress the Population gown that Howard wore was not only affordable, but also ethically aligned.  Dress the Population donates 50% of the proceeds from one garment a month to charity.  Although Howard’s dress was not the one chosen this month, she popularized the charitable enterprise by association.
