Who wore it sustainably? Dresses at the Oscars this March 2022
By Renoon

No slap in the face from us! Celebrities actually wore their values via their dresses at the 94th Academy Awards. More on who wore them at the Oscars this March 2022.

Red Carpet moments are seldom associated with responsible choices, with designers creating unique pieces with the goal of making them shine only once on the awards night… Fortunately, the Hollywood community has started caring more about the environmental impact of these events and this 2022’s Oscar season brought some stunning sustainable looks on the red carpet.

Recycling, upcycling and vintage options were all seen on the 94th Academy Awards’ carpet, worn by the likes of Mila Kunis, Megan Thee Stallion, and many more.

Here are some of our favorite responsible looks from this edition!

Kirsten Dunst, a first time nominee showed up to Sunday night’s Academy Awards in Los Angeles wearing a strapless vintage (2008) gown with tiered ruffles by the legendary couturier Christian Lacroix. The actress has been known to favor vintage when it comes to some of the biggest red carpet moments of the year, good for her!

Vintage clothing is good for the environment because the clothes already exist. No new resources or energy has been used to create them, while the only carbon footprint left by vintage fashion is that of transportation and minimal repairs!

Mila Kunis in Zuhair Murad at the 94th Academy Awards

The Ukrainian actress Mila Kunis picked a Zuhair Murad responsible gown for her appearance at this year Oscars. The beautiful pink gown was created by the designer Rahel Giuragussian, who came up with the concept of biodegradable sequins, which decomposes completely in a few months and doesn’t contain hazardous chemicals.

Rahel also uses a zero-waste method by trying not to dispose of any of her fabric. Often, the material is not even cut, but is instead draped around the body like a sculpture, as it seems on Mila!
