SHAH ALAM - Forget fleeting trends, sustainable fashion is the hottest look and Claudia Jessie is leading the charge.

This Bridgerton breakout is not just captivating audiences, she is redefining red-carpet elegance with eco-conscious style.

That chic suit she rocked on multiple promo tours?

Jessie proves that repeating an outfit isn't a faux pas, it's fabulous. By embracing pre-loved pieces, she's rewriting the rules of fashion with a powerful message in which sustainability is the new must-have accessory.

In an Instagram post, one of the internet’s users, known as username Holly Agnes, called on her followers to discuss Jessie’s outfits, who is well-known for her role as Eloise in the Bridgerton series.

“Do you notice that Claudia Jessie is wearing the same suit for all her Bridgerton press and just mixing it up with different styling?

“Because she is a queen who cares about sustainability. The suit is from Stella McCartney and made from recycled viscose,” she said in the post on Sunday.

During the press tour for Bridgerton Season 3, Jessie showcased her fashion versatility and stunning audiences with her choice of attire.

On two separate occasions, she elegantly wore a blue pinstripe suit, each time styling it distinctively and memorably, setting herself apart from the rest of the cast's impressive ensembles.

The users noted that Jessie first wore the blue pinstripe suit to the Bridgerton Season 3 premiere in New York City.

Jessie styled it with soft hair, beautiful makeup and bright green shoes, creating a stunning and memorable look.

For her appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Jessie revisited the suit, but this time with a more casual flair.

She paired it with a white t-shirt and adorned herself with chunky gold jewellery, going for a relaxed yet stylish look. Her hair was styled in a messy bun, adding to the laid-back vibe of the ensemble.

“I love this approach to red carpet, press dressing, and I'm looking forward to how she styles it next. It may not be method dressing, but it does feel like something Eloise would do,” the users said.

In the meantime, in a video show by the users, Jessie remarked in an interview that she embraces the idea of wearing the same outfit on multiple occasions.

“You will see me in this suit a fair amount, so I hope you like it,” Jessie said.

As per a report by iNews on the Online News Portal, it was highlighted that the actress, also an environmental advocate was known for her preference for second-hand clothing and avoidance of high street shopping.

Jessie further mentioned that the Regency-era costumes, influencing a resurgence of empire-waist styles, had undergone modern updates with fresh embroidery and textures for the ongoing filming of the series.

“Everything is specially made but we’ve been reusing things, reclaiming what we wore last year,” the article read.

Jessie highlighted the environmental consciousness of assistant costume designer Sophie Canale, stating that while the fashion industry was vast and change might not happen overnight, small actions matter.

Additionally, Jessie was spearheading a fresh campaign with children's charity Barnardo's, advocating for the adoption of pre-loved clothing as social activities resume post-lockdown.

Media reports revealed that Barnardo’s was rolling out a new initiative led by Bridgerton actress Jessie, urging shoppers to choose second-hand attire for their post-lockdown celebratory ensembles.

“We throw away tonnes and tonnes and tonnes, you don’t think about it anymore, but it ends up somewhere,” the article further read.

The statement continued, with Jessie urging individuals to seek out an outfit that was not only aesthetically pleasing but also distinct, imbued with personality and unlikely to be found elsewhere, ensuring its reusability.

Reflecting on her own experience, Jessie shared how she started wearing clothes from charity shops during her childhood as it was the most economical choice for her family.

As a teenager, she developed a passion for discovering ‘hidden gems’ and ‘vintage pieces’ finding joy in the uniqueness and history of each item.

She had garnered widespread praise for her fashion choices, drawing comparisons to her on-screen persona. Commenters flooded the post with accolades, noting the uncanny resemblance between Jessie and her character, Eloise.

The sentiment was echoed by @now.you.found.mo, who simply stated, "She's Eloise!" One user, @lasitlangval, exclaimed, "That's Eloise!" echoing the sentiment shared by many.

In addition to the admiration for her character portrayal, fans lauded Jessie's approach to fashion sustainability.

@sincerelyshany commented, "I honestly wish more celebs did this; you don't need to wear stuff only once," applauding Jessie's choice to reuse outfits.

@paigelang emphasised the practicality, remarking, "Well, for a suit that expensive, you bet I'd be wearing it frequently."

@danidominique_thecreative chimed in with appreciation and said, "It's so hilarious to me that I hadn't even noticed it was the same suit! She is working it! Kudos to her for working that suit! I love it even more now."

So, the amazing response to Jessie's style just goes to show that sustainability is having a major moment, even in Hollywood!
