LOS ANGELES* (MARCH. 12, 2023)
Chloe East shines on the red carpet at 95th Academy Awards ® wearing custom Monique Lhuillier, made from black TENCEL™ branded fibers featuring remnant RTW fabric. Chloe represented Suzy Amis Cameron’s RCGD Global initiative in collaboration with TENCEL™, with this year’s focus on accessible textile solutions made through sustainable processes to reduce waste and create positive impact.
Chloe East stars in Steven Spielberg’s Oscars-nominated ‘The Fablemans’ opposite Paul Dano, Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen. She was recently seen in the new HBO Max series GENERA+ION. Styled by Molly Dickson, Chloe East wore a Monique Lhuillier gown created in Monique Lhuillier’s vertical Los Angeles atelier with local dedicated artisans. Patterns and fabrics were reworked and re-purposed to create this custom look. A dramatic elongated velvet bodice was reimagined and customized from Lhuillier’s Fall 2019 Collection with an architectural A-line ball gown skirt, along with a bow detail with sweeping ties to complete the look. Chloe East combined the timeless gown with both modern and vintage jewels, keeping the look classic but still young and fresh.
Partnering for a fourth consecutive year at the 95th Academy Awards ® the RCGD Global and TENCEL™ annual partnership produces occasionwear using fibers and filaments with certified botanic origins. To qualify as a RCGD Global eco-conscious garment, each piece should be made from sustainable elements – including organic, recycled or repurposed materials. Other features include using hand-made craftsmanship details or small local production with a dedicated focus on minimal negative impact on the environment and people. The campaign focuses on social elements of sustainability including human resources, community impact, value cycle and legal frameworks.
“For Chloe East’s Oscar look, I created a dramatic, sculptural modern ball gown using a vintage piece from my collection and reimagining a new skirt design, incorporating sustainable fabrics in the bow detail. Sustainability is something I am passionate about without compromising design.” — Monique Lhuillier

About RCGD GLOBAL
RCGD Global is a women-led global change-making organization working from ‘moment’ to movement, bringing global cultural sustainability to the forefront of conversation and action within the fashion and design world. Celebrating its 14th 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 organizations’ 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.
Helmed by CEO, Samata Pattinson, a prior winner of the Global Design Contest in 2011 with over a decade of experience, Red Carpet Green Dress unveiled its rebrand to RCGD Global in 2022, to fully encompass the multitude of spaces that the organization 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
