"Eco-Chic" ...



I am so unbelievably sorry that I'm so late in posting this photoshoot! The truth is, I've only just stumbled upon it, but it caught my eye immediately. Why? Well, for a few reasons, of course. One, Cameron Diaz is one of my all-time idols. She sticks true to what she believes in, and she's extremely professional. Not to mention a style icon! The second reason, and by far the most important, is the overall idea of the shoot. Diaz is well-known among many for her eco-friendly habits; her hybrid car and all natural clothing only grazes this fact. So, for the photoshoot, photographer Mario Testino decided to clothe Diaz in "green". Not the color, my darlings, but the mantra. Thank you, Mr. Testino, for delivering me one of my favorite shoots of the year.



Wearing 3.1 Phillip Lim eco-dyed 100% natural silk dress, Eco Emporia belt made from a reclaimed fire hose, and John Hardy silver cuffs.




Left: Wearing Rag & Bone 100% organic-cotton cardigan and Tibi one-shoulder bathing suit. Right: Wearing Hessnatur silk-and-cotton tank, Ecote belt from Urban Outfitters, and Del Forte Denim certified-organic cotton-and-spandex jeans.




Left: Wearing Urban Zen natural silk-and-linen tunic, and Maison Martin Margiela belt. Right: Wearing shorts made from wild Guatemalan cotton that is naturally resistant to pests, Carolina Herrera gazar blouse, and Goods of Conscience plaid shorts.




Wearing Banana Republic Heritage duster cardigan, Stella McCartney organic-cotton bikini, and Bottega Veneta wedges.




Left: Wearing Barney's New York recycled-tire belt, Organic by John Patrick dress, Salvatore Ferragamo hobo bag, and Olsenhaus thong sandals (vegan). Right: Wearing Song Valerie Gregori McKenzie organic woven-hemp-and-straw hat, Banana Republic Heritage safari jacket, and Hessnatur top.


So everyone, in honor of the lovely Miss Cameron Diaz, let us all try our hardest to be as "green" as we can this year. We owe it to the gorgeous clothing made by these amazing designers, Mr. Mario Testino, ourselves, and most importantly, the earth we live on. I'll do my part right now by shutting off my laptop to conserve electricity, but I'll leave you with this one thought. Wouldn't you feel good to be a part in prolonging the life of the beautiful place we live? Isn't it worth it to shut off that one television, to pick up that one piece of trash on the ground, and to recycle that one empty bottle? I say yes to both questions. So, my darlings, let's "go green"!

    And this is one of my fav Testino editorials of all time. Cameron looks AMAZING, the lighting is perfection, it's just magical.

  21. i like the second picture the best.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Great editorial. I love how she can look all glamourous in them, but in some her goofy smile shines through. There's nothing more beautiful than a woman with a real smile.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love the cover of this issue ...and the editorial is beautiful as well. Just looking through it last night actually.

  32. I just bought a eco book but this one looks really cool. Cameran Diaz looks great in these photos!

    ReplyDelete
  33. agreed- she looks great! all those white pieces look amazing against her skin.

    i do, however, hate that headline 'carefree hair: taming the frizz'- isn't that a little too cosmo for vogue?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love my eco chic lol. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Not crazy about the cover photo (they had so many beautiful shots to choose from!) or the green writing plastered all over it but I adore the rest of the shoot. That belted dress is gorgeous and I love the white one-shouldered swimsuit!!! xoxo

  36. i was just watching when in vegas the other day and she had sucha nice body in the movie. she looks gorgeous here!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love Cameron Diaz! Such a genuine person, and I love eco-friendly people!

    ReplyDelete
  38. YAY! I feel like so many people dislike her for no reason, but I love her and think she is a truly genuine person. She's turning 37 this year and she still looks like she could be in her twenties. I think she is just a really inspirational person!
