*LOS ANGELES* (MARCH. 12, 2023)
Actor and producer Zoe Saldaña represented Suzy Amis Cameron’s RCGD Global on the 95th Academy Awards red carpet.
The acclaimed Avatar actress further embraces her sustainability journey, by sharing a thought-provoking message of awareness towards the planet on the biggest red carpet of them all.
Saldana’s formidable stylist Petra Flannery has worked to repurpose a natural colour of the ‘Lee Pouchet’ from Tyler Ellis and ready it to compliment Zoe’s stunning look. 100% Handmade in Italy with a family-led business, the Tyler Ellis brand works with highly trained Italian artisans. Materials come from tanneries that put social aspects first, strive to minimise their environmental footprints and preserve the health and safety of their workers. All satins used are PFC (per and polyfluorinated chemicals) free.
Adhering to this year’s Oscars bespoke sustainable style guide, produced by RCGD Global as an official partner of The Academy, Saldaña chose vintage earrings and a ring from Cartier to compliment her look.
About RCGD GLOBAL
RCGD Global is a women-led global change-making organisation working from ‘moment’ to movement, bringing global cultural sustainability to the forefront of conversation and action within the fashion and design world. Celebrating its 11th year of the Red Carpet Green Dress campaign initiative at the Oscars, RCGD Global was initially conceived as a design contest by Suzy Amis Cameron (actress, environmental advocate, and author) when faced with the lack of ethical fashion choices while attending global premieres of husband James Camerons’ ‘Avatar’. The organisations’ work has since developed to include collaborations with global and small independent brands, partnerships delivering sustainable design solutions such as regenerative materials, educational work with the emerging design community – including workshops, internships and work experience, and international design contest initiatives. Alongside a consultancy offering, RCGD Global’s R & D division delivers thought-leadership work for the industry, working with leading institutions such as Institute for Sustainability Leadership, University of Cambridge and University of California, Berkeley.
RCGD Global works to draw attention to the importance of more sustainable practices in the design world and to be part of bringing those solutions to a global, culturally diverse market. Leading fashion houses including Louis Vuitton, Vivienne Westwood, Armani, Elie Saab, Swarovski, Christian Siriano, Bulgari, Dunhill and Reformation have joined the campaign to create sustainable red carpet wear. Celebrities including Sophie Turner, Laura Harrier, Emma Roberts, Marlee Matlin, Danielle MacDonald, LaKeith Stanfield, Camila Alves, and Naomie Harris have joined the campaign as representatives of its Oscars red carpet green dress initiative. RCGD Global’s work has been featured in VOGUE, Vanity Fair, W Magazine, People, The Hollywood Reporter, WWD, Washington Post, Harper’s Bazaar, Refinery29, The Guardian, ELLE, LA Times, The New York Times, Business of Fashion amongst others, across over 100 countries.
Red Carpet Green Dress unveiled its rebrand to RCGD Global in 2022, to fully encompass the multitude of spaces that the organisation exists in with a focus on four core pillars:
> Collaborating with respected and mainstream platforms to foster sustainable conversations and action
> Developing accessible sustainable design solutions which create real effective change
> Being part of creating a more socially fair, equitable and representative industry
> Helping to find language to create change
