But the often-complicated game of matching up the A-lister to the gown for the biggest-ticket, grand finale of awards seasons sometimes results in dresses that involve a bigger story or significance. That will be the case when Emma Roberts hits the red carpet this time around: The actress is involved with the Red Carpet Green Dress (RCGD) campaign for this year's Oscars, so she'll be donning an ethically-made dress for this year's event. Actress Priyanka Bose is also part of this year's RCGD campaign; she recently starred in Lion, which is currently nominated for six Oscars.
The duo of designers that crafted these eco-friendly designs for Roberts and Bose haven't yet been revealed. But take note: the luxury house that's whipping up Roberts' dress is a pretty unexpected choice for the actress. Last year, Sophie Turner and Lily Cole wore ethically-made looks by Vivienne Westwood and Galvan, respectively, as part of the RCGD initiative.
“We have the scope for massive global impact and together can help spread the important message of sustainability," Suzy Amis Cameron, RCGD founder, actress and environmental advocate, (and director James Cameron's wife) said in a statement. "Furthermore, we aim to stir conversation and encourage those we reach to join the movement." As for why RCGD is pairing up with Roberts and Bose this time around, the actresses " share my vision to create more consciously, to positively impact the environment and make the world a better place for our children to grow up in," Cameron explained in the release.
In addition to their ethically-made Oscar gowns, Roberts and Bose will be wearing exclusive pieces from Atelier Swarovski's fine jewelry line, which is being unveiled at this year's Academy Awards. Stay tuned for which brands are getting on board with Cameron's eco-friendly vision for the Oscars this year.
