Sustainability and eco-consciousness were not lost amidst the glitz and glamor of the 84th Academy Awards. Thanks to her Green Carpet Challenge (of which EMA is the U.S. partner), Livia Firth recruited several Oscar nominees to wear sustainable attire.
Thee-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep wore Lanvin’s first ever custom-made eco gown. According to Firth, “The gown is gold, full-length and made from Eco Certified Fabric sourced with help from the GCC.”
Livia’s husband, Colin contributed to the GCG by wearing his Tom Ford wool tuxedo from the previous year when he won for Best Actor. Recycling at its best!
Best Supporting Actor nominee Kenneth Branagh wore an Ermenegildo Zegna navy Made-to-Measure tuxedo created with eco-friendly Merino wool. (The wool was sourced from Australian non “mulesed” Merino sheep). Also in Ermenegildo Zegna was Best Actor nominee Demian Bichir (A Better Life). Bichir’s tuxedo was made with a blend of superfine wool and silk.
As for Firth, she looked gorgeous in a Valentino gown made of recycled PET (plastic bottles) and silk.
