Green Fashion

Vegan Celebrities 

Joaquin Phoenix wears it, Olivia Coleman wears it and Stella McCartney makes it. They are just a few of the vegan celebrities who supported green fashion at the 92nd Oscars ceremony.

The stars were out in force on Sunday 9th February 2020, while attending this year’s 92nd Academy Awards show, and paid homage to the real winner of the night without even knowing it. No speeches, no standing ovations and no considerable after-party. 

And the Oscar Goes to - Drum roll please...

The Environment. 

But there is still a way to go, so these guys are doing all they can to raise awareness.

From stars up-cycling golden oldies, as Elizabeth Banks proved, the old ones are the best. She chose to wear the same red Badgley Mischka gown, the same one she wore to the Vanity Fair after-party in 2004. I think 16 years is long enough to call it vintage. ‘It takes a brave girl to wear red on a red carpet’, tipped hats and all that.

On Sunday, the actress revealed, rather than purchasing a new gown. She would be re-wearing the 2004 Vanity Fair dress to “bring global awareness to the importance of sustainability in fashion and consumerism as it relates to climate change, production & consumption, ocean pollution, cheap labour & women”.

Ms Banks wasn't the only A-lister to bring back old favourites.  Screen legend Jane Fonda unwrapped a stunning crimson beaded Elie Saab gown; she wore at Cannes film festival in 2014 for this years' Oscars ceremony. Ms Fonda also went the extra mile and revealed while draping eloquently across her forearm, a tailored red coat which she has declared that it was ‘the last article of clothing I will ever buy’ when she was on stage to present Best Film.

The list does not end there, Penelope Cruz wore vintage Chanel! One our of favourite stars, Olivia Coleman, opted for famously eco-conscious UK brand Stella McCartney. Saoirse Ronan (was intelligent enough to enlist the help from stylist Elizabeth Saltzman and Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele) and wore a Gucci number with a bodice created using the surplus fabric from her 2020 BAFTA ensemble. 

And, it wasn’t just the girls that were in the sustainable spirit.  Joaquin Phoenix, while being remembered for his incredible speeches, all across the awards season, put his money where his mouth is. Mr Phoenix opted to wear the same custom one-button black tux created by the environmentally-conscious Stella McCartney to every ceremony he has attended, taking a page out of Olivia Coleman’s book.

Other stars opted to support the RCGD Initiative by wearing fabrics produced ethically and sustainably. Stars such as Lea Seydoux who represented the Green Carpet Challenge at this year’s Oscars ceremony in LA. Ms Seydoux looked sleek and chic in an ethical gown made in partnership with the Red Carpet Green Dress (RCGD) campaign as per the organisation’s sustainable standards.

All in all, the Red Carpet at this year’s Oscars ceremony was awash with fashion that was not just of the times but showed the way forward with more awareness and looking forward will only be more prominent in the years to come.
