As ambassadors for as Suzy Amis Cameron’s Red Carpet Green Dress initiative, both Kaitlyn Dever and Léa Seydoux opted for custom-made ethical gowns by Louis Vuitton. Dever wore a red dress made out of eco-responsible silk satin with Swarovski crystals and beads, and $47 red platform heels by Aldo, a climate-neutral brand.

In an interview with E!, the Booksmart star said she was supporting the Red Carpet Green Dress initiative, which encourages both celebrities and brands to wear more sustainable designs. “Supporting sustainable clothing is really important,” Dever said. She also encouraged viewers to shop more vintage.

No Time To Die actor Léa Seydoux’s black-and-white gown was made of organic silk faille and Tencel Luxe, an eco-friendly filament yarn you’ll be seeing more of on the red carpet. You can’t see them here, but even her sandals were made of organic satin.

But sustainability isn’t just for gowns. Best actor nominee Joaquin Phoenix showed up in the same Stella McCartney suit he’s been wearing all awards’ season. The designer, and pioneer of sustainable fashion, created a custom one-button black tux with a grosgrain shawl lapel and matching bow tie for Phoenix.

If tonight’s looks are any indication, it’s clear that sustainability is going to have much more than just a moment on the red carpet. The beauty and fashion brands are going to keep focusing on sustainability and transparency in 2020—and we’re here for it. But for now…which look would you like to see make a reappearance on the red carpet next?
