At the recently-held Academy Awards 2020, Fonda was seen in a lovely sheer gown with extensive red sequin details from Elie Saab. The interesting bit about the outfit is that she had worn the same at the Cannes Film Festival in 2014. Going a step ahead, she accessorised her present look with Pomellato jewellery because “it only uses responsible, ethically harvested gold and sustainable diamonds” she reasoned on her Instagram post.

Many on Instagram were quick to point this out and were full of praise for her.

Another celebrity who professed to do the same was actor Joaquin Phoenix. The Joker actor who swept away all the awards had vowed to wear the same tuxedo for all the award functions. The outfit has been designed by British designer Stella McCartney and the designer had shed light on the actor’s decision. “This man [Phoenix] is a winner…wearing custom Stella because he chooses to make choices for the future of the planet and all of its creatures. He has also chosen to wear this same Tux for the entire award season to reduce waste. I am proud and honoured to join forces with you Joaquin, keep inspiring and keep shining your light,” she had written on her Instagram post.
