Oscars 2020: Sustainable Fashion Was the real Winner on the Red Carpet
It’s February and it’s that time of the year again, it’s Oscars 2020 Academy Awards! The 92nd edition of the most important event in the movie industry. Stars from all around the world came to Los Angeles to celebrate cinematography, fashion and art.
For the second time in a row, the ceremony had no host as Kevin Hart stepped down after Twitter controversy. The Red Carpet at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood gave us some amazing fashion moments but most of all we had a clear fil rouge for the ceremony and it was sustainability.
Our favourite celebrities came clean on re-wearing outfits that we have already seen on them in different award nights during the years. Other people took a step forward and actually made theirs from fabric scraps.
Here are the best and most interesting looks of the 92nd Academy Awards.
The winner of Best Actor for Joker was Joanquin Phoenix. An amazing actor who gave an incredible testimonial. Also an activist for veganism, sustainability and animal rights. For the Oscars, he wore the same Stella McCartney tuxedo that he wore for all the awards this season. A strong personal choice, perfectly in line with his strong ideas and speech that left a clear mark on this event’s history.
The 23-year-old actress looked gorgeous in her custom-made crimson Louis Vuitton gown. Dress made of Tencel. A completely eco-friendly fiber, responsibly sourced silk-satin, embellished with Swarovski crystals and also glass beads.
The Irish actress jumped right on the sustainability train and she actually took it up a notch. Her gorgeous bi-color gown was a bespoke creation by Gucci. Wearing fabric scraps from previously worn black Bafta dress. She completed the look with jewelry and hair clips also by Gucci.
The Pose star surprised us in 2019 with an amazing tuxedo gown and Oscars 2020 was not the year to back down. Porter looked amazing on the Red Carpet in a custom-made two pieces by Giles Deacon Couture. Also featuring a 24-carat gold bodice paired with a long puffy skirt inspired by the artwork of Buckingham Palace, completed with a pair of Jimmy Choo gold platform shoes. Unforgettable!
Bratt Pitt took the prize home for Best Supporting Actor for Once upon a time in Hollywood. Brad looked super sharp and elegant in his suede lapels tuxedo by the Italian brand Brioni for which he is a brand ambassador. And completed his look with Fred Leighton jewels.
Let’s be honest, with her casual baggy style, Billie Eilish made the Oscars a little cooler. The five times Grammy winner singer, arrived on Oscars 2020 red carpet wearing a white embellished tweed Chanel suit, completed by very extra black long nails, green roots and tong out. Now, that’s how you make fashion history!
The 50-years-old actress won the Best Actress prize and looked amazing in her form-fitting custom-made Armani Privè dress. Sparkling, but not too out there. The Judy star was chic and classy but nodding at the last runway trends as her gown was one-shoulder style.
This Is Us star wore a total show-stopper red number on the Red Carpet. The amazing red off the shoulder dress was a Christian Siriano custom-made piece that put Metz right on the best dressed list of the night with the incredible draping and silhouette.
If Joaquin Phoenix used his speech time to raise awareness on the brutality of the dairy industry, Natalie Portman was not holding herself back on the Red Carpet for the total absence of women nominees in the Best Director category.
The actress looked gorgeous in Dior embellished black and gold cape gown, but the detail that really caught everyone’s attention was the side embroidery. The actress didn’t hide her disappointment noticing that once again there were no female directors nominated in this category. She walked the Red Carpet with embroidered names of all the female directors who were overlooked this year in the directing category. Namely, Greta Gerwig for Little Women, Lulu Wang for The Farewell as well as Lorene Scafaria for Hustlers.
The legendary director made us a little emotional with his look of choice for the Academy Awards ceremony. He specifically paid a tribute to Kobe Bryant, who recently passed away along with his daughter and 7 other people in a tragic helicopter crash on the hills of Calabasas in Los Angeles.
Lee was wearing a custom-made Gucci purple and yellow suit, LA Lakers uniform colours, with 24, Bryant jersey number, embroidered on the back and on the lapels. In addition to this, he opted for a purple hat, purple glasses as well as a pair of orange Nike Kobe 9 Elite “Strategy” sneakers. One of the many collaborations between the basketball legend and the American sportswear giant.
