You know, you hear about celebrities being environmental activists, but to see it seals the deal.
We love Kate Bosworth ; she's so cute and her style is ever evolving. We were super excited when we found out she was going to co-host this year's Gorgeous and Green benefit in San Francisco .
This is the benefit's fourth year in the making, and past hosts and supporters include Leonardo DiCaprio , Orlando Bloom , and Salma Hayek . Proceeds went to Global Green USA , an organization committed to various green initiatives like rebuilding New Orleans and promoting access to clean water as a global human right. Not only did PartySugar find a really yummy organic cabernet , I talked to Bosworth about her super cool Phillip Lim dress, which turned out to be, you guessed it, green.
After greeting Bosworth, she complimented us — "You guys look lovely." She had us at lovely. I knew her dramatic zippered LBD was from Phillip Lim's Spring collection , but there was more than meets the eye:
So this dress is Phillip Lim?
"It’s his green line. This dress is in his regular [Spring] line but he made this for me for this event. I told him I really liked this dress, but I know he has a green line, so I asked if it was possible to make it green and he said absolutely. This is some hemp, some organic silk, recycled zippers, and it’s been hand-dyed in natural dyes. What’s so great about it is a lot of people think green clothing can be boring or granola-ish. The reason I loved it is it shows how you can make an interesting design 100 percent green."
