At This Year’s Oscars, Stars Turned the Red Carpet Green

Tonight’s Oscars red carpet certainly dished up the glitz and glamour that you’d expect to see at the awards ceremony. (See Vogue’s best-dressed Oscars list from the red carpet here.) But there was also a new spirit in the air this evening, one that saw Hollywood A-listers reject the tradition of having brand new gowns custom-made for them. Instead, select stars embraced a more eco-minded approach to fashion. They did so by opting to wear vintage dresses or gowns that had a sustainable or upcycled element to them.

The Oscars were not the only green-leaning awards this season. The BAFTAs instituted a dress code that encouraged stars to re-wear a look from a past carpet appearance. But during tonight’s ceremony, some stars took the idea to bold new heights.

Below, 8 stars whose Oscars outfit put the planet first.
