It is no secret that Joaquin Phoenix is a climate change warrior. With an upbringing surrounded by a sustainable lifestyle, the award-winning actor has continued the cause well into his success and riches. At the Golden Globes last week, Phoenix thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for its focus on turning the menu vegan and with his role in Joker, the 45-year-old has a long season of awards ceremonies to go. His sustainable fix? Outfit repeating.
The act of outfit repeating has been shunned in the past as a cardinal sin of red carpet style but in light of recent weather events across the globe, the sustainable approach has been welcomed. Donning a simple black tux, it was Stella McCartney who was commissioned for the look and at the Critics’ Choice Awards today, the suit made its second appearance.
“This man is a winner… wearing custom Stella because he chooses to make choices for the future of the planet. He has also chosen to wear this same Tux for the entire award season to reduce waste. I am proud to join forces with you,” McCartney, 48, wrote on Twitter last week.
Will other guests and A-listers follow suit? The trend is bound to catch-on.
