BrandHabit covered the Global Green Event in San Francisco on Tuesday night. The 3rd annual “Gorgeous and Green” event which took place at the Bently Reserve Building in Downtown SF supports the efforts to rebuild a sustainable New Orleans and advance green affordable housing, solar and high performance schools across the country.
Someone mentioned earlier in the day that Brad Pitt and George Clooney would be there and you can ONLY imagine what a tizzy I was in leading up to the event. I spent the day in business meetings imaging the flirt-a-thon I would have with George.. but alas they were a no-show.
Seema (our Project Manager) and I however had the opportunity to chat with a few celeb supporters of the event. We first talked to KaDee Strickland and her husband, Jason Behr. What a darling couple they are! Both are passionate about making a difference in the green movement and feel by taking small steps, and by educating our children that there is a chance for our planet.
We also chatted with Jennifer Siebel who I believe showed up in place of her boyfriend, Gavin Newsom. Let me just say this: That girl is a doll. Very well spoken, gorgeous and clearly has been steeped in the green and conservation movement since high school. Gavin, this girl is a good catch. Take good care of her.
We almost chatted with hottie, Jason Lewis from Sex in the City but Us Weekly trumped our interview.. Humph!
All in all, it is clear that the crowd was passionate about our planet. I loved hearing that everyone is driving hybrid cars. When is there going to be a Law about hybrid cars.??? Every new car bought should absolutely be a Hybrid.. come on! I have to admit, I don’t’ have one yet but I hear that it’s worse on the environment to buy a new car when you don’t need one than to wait until your old car is dead first.
The Gorgeous and Green Event’s highlight was the fashion show that included sustainable fabrics in the collections of: Bahar, Kelly B, Margaret O’Leary and a few others…
Also: A performance artist of sorts, Anastasia was there in all of her splendor:
Her message as quoted by Marie Antoinette’s personal dressmaker, Rose Bertin,
“There is nothing new except what is forgotten”… As with fashion, so it is with war.
Check her out. I love this stuff!
