Spare a thought for the poor A-listers attending the BAFTAs next weekend.
Hollywood stars, including nominees Brad Pitt, Charlize Theron, Scarlett Johansson, and Renée Zellweger, are jetting to London for the so-called British Oscars on Feb. 2. But they’ve been hit with a stiff sartorial code — to “dress sustainably,” which means they may have to re-wear, rent or pick vintage.
Guests — including Prince William and Kate Middleton — are being encouraged to be a “voice for change.”
If they do insist on buying something new, a list of sustainable brands, including Reformation and Stella McCartney (coincidently both favorites of Meghan Markle’s), has been sent to the stars’ p.r. teams.
The guidelines are part of the academy’s plans for their first-ever carbon-neutral awards ceremony.
“Sustainability is very important to BAFTA, and we’re doing more than ever before,” a rep told Harper’s Bazaar, adding: “The goal is that the . . . [awards] will be carbon-neutral . . . From travel and food to branding and materials, BAFTA is ensuring the awards are as sustainable as possible.”
