Cameron Diaz has long been one of Hollywood’s favorite leading ladies, famed for being one of Charlie’s Angels and a Bad Teacher.
During Liva Firth’s Green Carpet Challenge at the Met Costume Institute Gala in New York held early this week, Diaz turned heads with a custom made Stella McCartney gown, a fabulous piece made from organic certified silk, gilded with a crystal chain and a number of glass beads.
The dress stood apart from the rest, given its enhanced take on fashion sensibilities and inherent eco-friendly standard.
Stella McCartney is famed for being Paul McCartney’s daughter, but celebrity-daughter status aside, she is also a designer and an advocate of the sustainable use of eco conscious materials used in the making of fashion and apparel items.
She launched her fashion house in 2001, Stella McCartney, under a joint venture setup with the Gucci Group. The fashion house now sports a number of free standing stores based in different parts of the world, including venues in Manhattan, Paris, and in Milan.
The brand, apart from creating designer clothing creations also features a skincare lineup, with products all made with organic standards, with green tea, apricot and lemon balms with cleansing milk.
It also has a lingerie lineup, and a recently added for-kids lineup, with clothing options for newborns to 12 year olds. As a long time PETA advocate, McCartney’s eco-friendly inclinations really doesn’t come as a big surprise.
Diaz’s organic certified silk dress speaks volumes over how far fashion sensibilities can go, even with eco-standards are involved in their construction.
