“Lily looked wonderful Sunday night, showing just how beautiful sustainable fashion can be,” said Jill Fraser, founder and CEO of Jill Milan.

Jill Milan®, a provider of luxury fashion and accessories, announced that English model and actress Lily Cole carried Jill Milan to the 88th Annual Academy Awards® Sunday in Los Angeles. Ms. Cole carried Jill Milan’s Art Deco Clutch in silver.

“Lily looked wonderful Sunday night, showing just how beautiful sustainable fashion can be,” said Jill Fraser, founder and CEO of Jill Milan. “The Art Deco clutch she carried went so well with her Vivienne Westwood dress.” Ms. Cole was styled by celebrity stylist Sandy Phan.

Ms. Cole walked the red carpet Sunday in support of Suzy Amis Cameron’s eco fashion campaign, Red Carpet Green Dress. Red Carpet Green Dress, conceived by Ms. Cameron during the press tour for husband James Cameron’s film “Avatar,” combines the worlds of fashion and sustainability to draw attention to the importance of sustainable practices in fashion.

Ms. Cole was booked for her first British Vogue cover at age 16, and has worked with many well-known brands, including Vogue worldwide, Alexander McQueen, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Jean Paul Gaultier, Marc Jacobs, Prada, De Beers and Moschino.

The Art Deco Clutch Ms. Cole carried is entirely handmade in Florence, Italy, and was highlighted in W Magazine’s "Most Wanted" feature.
