Gina Rodriguez, breakout star of the CW hit show Jane the Virgin wore a cobalt-gblue gown designed by Red Carpet Green Dress womenswear winner Manon Gabard. Made from 100 percent Global Organic Textile Standard-certified “peace silk”—that is, silk that is harvested only after the silkmoth breaks out of its cocoon—the dress was finished off with low-impact dyes and accessorized with vintage Neil Lane jewelry, an Edie Parker clutch, and shoes from Jimmy Choo.
American Sniper’s Jake McDorman cut a dapper form in a tuxedo designed by Red Carpet Green Dress menswear winner Tingting Chen. Composed of 100 percent deadstock wool, the jacket also featured a lining derived from 100 percent GOTS-certified deadstock peace silk and a logwood-dyed peace silk trim. McDorman topped—and bottomed—his ensemble with Brave GentleMan’s animal-friendly “Innovator” shoe (courtesy of NYC vegan footwear retailer MooShoes), an EkoCycle shirt made from recycled plastic bottles, and hemp boxers by Jeff Garner’s Prophetik brand.

The frock, a PR person from H&M helpfully told us, costs $299—outside of most budgets, for sure, but a steal for Tinseltown’s finest.
