CAMILA ALVES MCCONAUGHEY SHINES AT THE OSCARS IN VIVIENNE WESTWOOD ARCHIVAL GOWN IN SUPPORT OF SUZY AMIS CAMERON’S RED CARPET GREEN DRESS CAMPAIGN

LOS ANGELES, CALIF. (March. 4, 2018) – Fashion icon Camila Alves McConaughey took a stand for sustainability this afternoon when she arrived at the 90th Academy Awards® in a classic Vivienne Westwood archival gown in support of Suzy Amis Cameron’s Red Carpet Green Dress (RCGD) ethical fashion campaign.

The Vivienne Westwood dress was an ivory silk faille moire asymmetric gown with tulle petticoat. This grande corset gown made from an archival silk that was originally created at the London Atelier as part of their A/W2014 Collection. Alves especially selected this unique design from the Westwood classic collections, encouraging the revitalization of archival gowns. 

In support of the Red Carpet Green Dress initiative, I’m proud to wear a gown from designer Vivienne Westwood, made from archival silk that is ethically and sustainably crafted. I’m continuing to find ways to do my part in bettering the world we live in. By encouraging the revitalization of archival gowns, I’m making the “old” new again and finding beauty that already exists,” shared Alves McConaughey.

ABOUT VIVIENNE WESTWOOD:

Vivienne Westwood began designing in 1971, and by the end of the 1970s, she was already considered a symbol of the British avant-garde. For Autumn/Winter 1981, Westwood showed her first catwalk presentation in London. In 1986, a radical change of direction moved Westwood away from street style and youth culture as she adopted more traditional Savile Row tailoring techniques. Since then, Westwood has received numerous accolades, continues to show in Paris and London, and is one of the most influential fashion designers in the world today. She uses the medium of her shows to talk about culture and politics, more specifically about the urgent need to act against climate change.

ZOEY DEUTCH STUNS IN SUSTAINABLE ELIE SAAB ARCHIVAL GOWN WITH VINTAGE DETAILS AT THE 90TH ACADEMY AWARDS® AS PART OF SUZY AMIS CAMERON’S RED CARPET GREEN DRESS 2018 INITIATIVE

LOS ANGELES, CALIF. (March. 4, 2018) – Earlier this evening at the 90th Academy Awards®, Red Carpet Green Dress (RCGD) celebrity partner, actress Zoey Deutch stunned onlookers in an Elie Saab archival gown with vintage details, styled by Elizabeth Stewart. Deutch is one of the many celebrities over the past nine years who have joined Amis Cameron in the name of sustainability proving that the “old” has become the “new.”

The archive piece is embellished with silver silk threads, sequins and vintage beads from Mr. Saab’s Beirut atelier. The natural hand-dyed color of the dress is a tribute to the untouched beauty of the Indian culture with slowly embroidered handmade patterns—respecting artisanal and ancestral craftsmanship, and a nod to slow, considered fashion. The embroidery techniques used are passed on from one generation to another.

LAKEITH STANFIELD WEARS CUSTOM-MADE SUSTAINABLE ERMENEGILDO ZEGNA COUTURE IN TUXEDO AT THE 90TH ACADEMY AWARDS®

Get Out Actor Aligns with Suzy Amis Cameron’s Red Carpet Green Dress Ninth Annual Initiative

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (March 4, 2018) – Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out, Atlanta, Come Sunday, Sorry To Bother You, The Girl In The Spider’s Web) wowed viewers when he arrived at the 90th Academy Awards ® earlier this evening wearing a custom-made sustainable tuxedo made by Ermenegildo Zegna Couture as a part of Suzy Amis Cameron’s Red Carpet Green Dress campaign.  Styled by Micaela Erlanger, he continued to grab the attention of his peers inside the Dolby Theater when he engaged in a comedy skit with the Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel during the first half of the live ABC broadcast.

The tuxedo is a navy Tussah Silk, which is sturdier than cultivated silk. Typically gathered in the jungle from cocoons of wild silk moths, the silk is found in a natural state with minimal human intervention and very little invasion to the process. For this reason, unlike a silk yarn produced with greater mechanical interventions, the yarn of Tussah silk features irregularities creating a rich texture, typical of wild, natural breeding.
