One Stylish Thing: @RedCarpetGreenDress Does the Oscars

Warning – we are going fashionista for a moment!  Who knew that beautiful robins egg blue dress was sustainable!?!?  And so was the red one, an off the shoulder stunner!  The organization Red Carpet Green Dress has for the last ten years worked to raise awareness about the importance of more sustainable practices in fashion.  Its founder, Suzy Amis Cameron, challenges world-famous designers to make eco-friendly gowns for red carpet events and beyond.  This year at the Oscars, Laura Harrier, the female lead in BlacKkKlansman, wore a stunning and sustainable dress from Vuitton’s Paris atelier — it was “crafted out of a blue crepe silk certified by the Global Organic Textile Standards and hand-embroidered with glass beads, Swarovski crystal shards, and sequins that required over 450 hours of work.”   Australian actress Danielle MacDonald also wore a sustainable scarlet dress by designer Christian Siriano.  All we can say is that these were two ladies and their dresses that stood out on this year’s red carpet both for their elegance and their eco-friendliness!
