The French actress and Friend of Louis Vuitton shares a look behind-the-scenes of her specially-designed eco-friendly gown by Nicolas Ghesquière for the Oscars 2020.
To attend her very first Academy Awards ceremony, Léa Seydoux chose to wear a dress that respects the Red Carpet Green Dress’ strict sustainability standards. RCGD is a women-led global change-making organization founded by leading environmental advocate Suzy Amis Cameron to promote ethical and eco-responsible fashion.
At Louis Vuitton’s Parisian ateliers near the Place Vendôme, the Maison’s couturiers spent over 100 hours draping, drafting, and sewing a sample of the bustier dress before the first fitting. With a fitted body and voluminous skirt, the sustainable gown features a newly launched organic silk faille fabric made from TENCEL™ Luxe filament yarn.
“I think we can also tell stories with what we wear, and in addition to being beautiful, my dress tonight conveys a message.”
