Cameron Diaz and Gisele Bundchen Being Ridiculously Hot (and Green!) in June Vogue

The June issue of Vogue is packed with Green Goodness! I saved it for my flight to London last week and I was so pleased to find so many verdant gems among the regular great-as-usual Vogue content and reporting.

Gorgeous shoot, all sun-drenchy and summery. Here Cameron wears a Hessnatur silk and cotton tank, an Ecote belt and Del Forte organic cotton jeans.

First, Eco Chick Cameron Diaz not only graced the cover, but was featured in an eco fashion spread inside the mag, wearing some of my fave designers, including John Patrick Organic, Stella McCartney, Del Forte, Hessnatur and Olsenhaus, all of which have been featured on this site.

Gisele Bundchen looks naturally gorgeous in this 100% organic cotton suit colored with low-impact dye from Loyale.

Though Gisele DID date Mr. Supergreenie Leo DiCaprio for some time, and she has a great green blog, she also seems to have no problem wearing fur or representing some pretty ungreen companies like True Religion jeans and Victoria’s Secret.

However, she is incredibly influential (and is the top-earning model in the world, according to a recent Forbes report) which is great news for Loyale’s Jenny Hwa, who designed the lovely greenblue bikini pictured above on The Body. I’ve been a big fan of Loyale (see Spring ’09 here) for years (featured the line in Plenty when I style edited there) and it’s so great to see a New York-based eco designer like Jenny getting her due in Vogue.

I was especially excited to see that in the travel special of this issue, Vogue highlighted get-in-shape getaways with a green bent (my preferred mode of vacation), including Charym, a local-to-me yoga/hiking/mountain biking spa in my home state of Connecticut. Is that a woman about to go river kayaking in VOGUE? (Not in those boots, though they are superfab, but anyway). Other vacays encourage surfing, organic massages, horseback riding and trail running. Hey, I trail run!

And the last page of Vogue’s June issue features the Fendi Abici bike (only a Benjamin under $6K! What recession?) But it IS Fendi, and this officially means city biking is in, which in an indirect (but important, I’d argue) way bodes well for bike lanes, pedestrian-focused cities, and pushing the car OUT.
