Emma Roberts Giorgio Armani Vintage Prive' Gown

Red Carpet Green Dress celebrity partner, actress Emma Roberts (“Scream Queens”) showcased a form of sustainable fashion when she arrived at the 89th Academy Awards® wearing a classic Giorgio Armani gown from his very first Prive’ collection. The gown was accessorized with exclusive pieces from Atelier Swarovski Fine Jewelry. This is the first time vintage fashion has been put under the spotlight by Suzy Amis Cameron’s eco-conscious cause as a solution to help better the environment.
Emma Roberts Giorgio Armani Vintage Prive' Gown
Red Carpet Green Dress is always researching ways to help improve the planet and the lives of others,” states actress and environmental activist Amis Cameron. “As a culture, we are inundated with messaging of wanting and needing the latest ‘new’ product. But by recycling gowns, we are making the ‘old’ new again and finding the beauty that already exists. It is an important form of sustainability.”

The spaghetti strap couture dress, which originally debuted in Paris in January 2005, is embroidered with cream crystals and waves of small white jet beads featured in a two-tiered skirt. The dramatic plunging bodice is made of jet and black crystal teardrops and is completed with a black satin cummerbund at the waist. 

To complete the head-to-toe look Emma Roberts wore exclusive created diamond pieces from Atelier Swarovski’s first fine jewelry collection. Inspired by nature and driven by science, Swarovski brings conscious luxury and innovation to the red carpet with the Atelier Swarovski Fine Jewelry Collection, handcrafted in a Parisian atelier and featuring Swarovski Created Diamonds and crystals.  Swarovski Created Diamonds are grown in a state-of-the-art lab and have the same optical, chemical and physical attributes as mined diamonds.

To qualify as a Red Carpet Green Dress eco-conscious garment, each piece must either be made from recycled, organic or repurposed materials, use handmade detailing or incorporate natural dye processing. All resources focus on an environmentally and socially responsible design with a minimal negative impact on the environment.

For the 2017 Oscars-inspired campaign, Red Carpet Green Dress partnered with Atelier Swarovski and Earth Friendly Products, maker of ECOS™ Laundry Detergent to help raise funds for MUSE School CA. MUSE School CA is an environmental non-profit educational organization Amis Cameron founded in Calabasas, Calif., with her sister Rebecca Amis. The financial assistance enables students to access a transformative educational experience. MUSE School CA ensures small class size, personalized instruction and learning practices; all set within an inspiring and beautiful campus. Through these key elements, MUSE School CA paves the way in creating leaders of the future. For more information, go to www.museschool.org.

ABOUT RED CARPET GREEN DRESS:

Red Carpet Green Dress is an internationally recognized organization that combines the worlds of fashion and sustainability. Currently in its eighth year, the campaign was conceived by Suzy Amis Cameron during the press tour for her husband, James Cameron's film “Avatar”. Her hope is to draw attention to the importance of more sustainable practices in fashion. It challenges designers from around the world to think about fashion in an eco-friendly platform. The campaign also raises funds for MUSE School CA, a non-profit educational organization that Amis Cameron founded with her sister Rebecca Amis in Calabasas, California.

Modern Leather Moto Jackets for Elite Clientele

New Luxury Leather Fashion House Launches Premium Line of Moto Jackets for Elite Clientele
Women's White Leather Moto Jacket

White Moto Sheep Skin Leather Jacket with Belt

The classic leather jacket has received a luxe, modern update with the latest collection from exclusive design house, Michael Lombard Modern Moto Jackets. Building upon a style staple, the sumptuous new take on the ubiquitous moto uses only premium 100% calf skin and sheepskin leather and durable metal hardware to craft each meticulously designed outerwear article. It is an innovative collection, tailored towards dressing the elite.

Committed to craftsmanship, every cut, fold and stitch that goes into each ML Moto Jacket is executed to perfection. While the leather jacket has its roots in raw, rugged workwear this premium offering is better suited to high-class events or public appearances where there is a need to dress to impress.
Calf Skin Moto Jacket

Michael Lombard, CEO and designer said, “There are certain articles in fashion that are quite simply timeless. Alongside the little black dress, the turtle neck sweater and Levi 501s, the leather jacket is simply iconic. In my latest collection I respect its defining features while also creatively pushing the boundaries of what it stands for. I’ve taken the classic and updated it for the modern day. After a painstaking process of hand-sketching many initial designs, striving for perfection, the final collection that is showcased by ML Moto Jackets embodies this mixture of contemporary and classic perfectly, presented through luxury.”

While the visual impact of each ML Moto Jacket is bold, the experience of wearing each sheep or calf skin outerwear creation is nothing but subtle. Produced using sophisticatedly soft hides, these leathers are the highest grade available, providing comfort, longevity and a long-lasting, premium product. 

The range of must-have leather jackets from ML Moto is available for men and women, with a variety of designs and colors to choose from. Alongside the classic ‘moto’ silhouette, a military offering and a longer line coat are just some of the choices given to stylish women, while men enjoy variations on the classic featuring ribbed detailing, additional zips and even a premium western shirt style, each article crafted using the finest quality leather.

About the company:

Michael Lombard Modern Moto Jackets is an exclusive designer brand, renowned for high-end men's and women’s genuine calf and sheep kin leather outerwear. It combines exceptional quality with contemporary design, producing hand-crafted moto jackets and additional styles, providing premium leather for the elite client.
