She is known for her impeccable red carpet style, but Jane Fonda said she will never shop again while continuing her crusade around climate change.
The legendary actress, 81, told a crowd that the red coat she was wearing when she was arrested at her organized protest was the last fashion piece she would buy, although she joked that if she lives to 100, she might reconsider.
The New York-born mother of three added that she grew up when consumerism seemed less of a problem, but now that she is aware of the damage it is causing on the planet, she will & # 39; talk & # 39; and stop contributing to the fast fashion cycle.

This jacket is also pretty symbolic.
The woolen cover up to the length of the ankles was specifically chosen by Jane because of the shade and the connection with fire. (The name Fire Drill Fridays was inspired by activist Greta Thunberg who says that people should pretend that their house is on fire when tackling climate change.)
The designer of the crimson jacket is unknown, because the star and her stylist Tanya Gill have not yet revealed their origins, but the label is not exactly the most important part.
After Nancy, Pelosi inspired viral memes when she was photographed in a red Max Mara coat after a confrontation with Trump, Jane decided to take sartorial directions from the House of Representatives.
So far she has been wearing her wide lapel jacket with red lapel, which many fashion experts have suggested in a $ 750 design from the Meghan Markle approved brand Mackage, during two other protests in October.
Jane & # 39; s passionate speech was captured by journalist Nicholas Ballasy, who shared it on YouTube.

In the clip, the 9 to 5 star said: & # 39; You see this jacket, I needed something red so I went out and found this jacket on sale. This is the last item of clothing that I will ever buy. & # 39;
She added that her decision was inspired by youth activist Greta Thunberg (16), who had reminded her & # 39; a lot of consumerism & # 39 ;.
Outfit: Jane again wore the jacket with wide lapels on 11 October
& # 39; I grew up when consumerism wasn't so strangely concerned about us, so when I talk to people about how we shouldn't really keep shopping – we shouldn't look for shopping for our identity; we just don't need more than I need to talk, so I don't buy any more clothes, & she said.
The actress joked that without retail therapy she would have a lot of free time to continue.
Washington D.C. -based political journalist Ted Johnson also filmed the moment and posted it twitter.
Shortly thereafter, Jane was arrested for the fourth time in as many weeks. Her actress friends Rosanna Arquette and Catherine Keener, both 60, were also arrested.
Jane was taken into custody after the demonstration in the US Senate Hart building. She has vowed to protest every Friday in an attempt to tackle climate change politicians in an initiative known as Fire Drill Friday.
The two-time Oscar winner was free to walk around after she had paid a $ 50 fine the first three times she was arrested, but her last arrest put her in prison.

She had told reporters before her arrest: & I will probably go to jail tonight. It won't be the first time. And I am willing to do that. & # 39;
Jane opened about her night behind bars in an interview this week with The Hollywood Reporter the & # 39; not great & # 39; to mention.
& # 39; Well, you know, I'm a white movie star. What are they going to do, & she said. & # 39; Frankly, the circumstances aren't great, and you have to sleep on a metal plate. And I'm almost 82 years old and I'm in pain.
& # 39; I was in the cell for 20 hours and seven in the cell. It was a pen. All cells contain several people except mine. In my cell it was just me and the cockroaches. & # 39;
She added that she spoke to the other female prisoners she met and heard their stories.
Jane also told the outlet that friends in the entertainment industry, including Diane Lane, Brooklyn Decker, June Diane Raphael, Lily Tomlin, and Taylor Schilling are coming with her to her upcoming Fire Drill Friday protests.
In addition to her newly implemented self-imposed shopping ban, she has made conscious decisions to help the environment.
She takes the train instead of an airplane, drives a hybrid and has removed most of her single-use fish, meat and plastic from her life.
