How Gina Rodriguez's Eco-Friendly Oscars Dress Came Together
Gina Rodriguez walked the red carpet at Sunday’s Oscars in a eco-friendly dress as part of Suzy Amis Cameron‘s “Red Carpet Green Dress” campaign.
The “Jane the Virgin” star unveiled her beautiful blue pea-silk dress, designed by Paris fashion student, Manon Gebard, at yesterday’s Academy Awards ceremony and detailed her pre-Oscars primping experience for the Hollywood Reporter’s fashion section.
Rodriguez walks us through her final fitting, from selecting her jewelry to her shoes, allowing us a glimpse into what goes into preparing for the biggest Hollywood event of the year.
During a last-minute fitting, Rodriguez gushed about Gebard and her creation, noting that, “Who woulda thunk sustainable clothing could be this fly?”
After sharing a cute pic of her dog, Casper, in her closet, Rodriguez went on to reveal that the gown’s spectacular shade of blue was inspired by a jellyfish, raving, “So clever and fabulous!”
With her elegant ensemble complete, Rodriguez later posed with Gebard and Amis Cameron, saying that it was “lovely to meet Suzy Amis Cameron! She’s incredibly inspiring and I feel truly honored to be a part of her campaign, Red Carpet Green Dress.”

At the end of the prep, Rodriguez leaves us with a solo image of herself, donned in her gorgeous, eco-friendly gown. The caption underneath reads: “The final moments of the fitting … this amazing team is about to dive in and turn this gown of 100 percent certified organic peace silk into the dress of my dreams!!! Think they’ll let me keep it?”
We’re not sure if Gina was allowed to keep her dress, but we salute her, and Suzy, for bringing sustainable fashion to the biggest red carpet event of the year. Hopefully next year, there will be more than one gown made from sustainable silk.
