Awards season 2019 officially kicked off last night with the Golden Globes. While the sexist tenor of pre-show red carpet (“What are you wearing?” for women versus “What was your hardest performance” for men) combined with the celebration of mediocre films and the ghosts of #metoo (i.e. Bryan Singer) are predictable and exhausting, we still find the glittering dresses and tender moments a reliable antidepressant for the post-holiday slump.
There were only three sustainable fashion looks represented in the evening by—you guessed it: Stella McCartney. Julia Roberts’s pantsuit combined the glamor of Hollywood with the practicality of Diane Keaton. Sandra Oh, who was doing double duty as host received the award for Best Actress for a TV Drama and thanked her parents in a structured white dress with glittering puffed sleeves by McCartney. (This was her third costume change of the night, she walked the red carpet in Versace.) And Olivia Coleman who received her Golden Globe for Best Actress in a chic black mesh shoulderless gown.
Most of us will never experience the “glitz and glam” of walking the red carpet, but if we were, we would want to make it sustainable. We took some of our favorite looks, and found sustainable options in time for our New Years resolutions.
