In order for this year’s Captain Planet Foundation gala co-chair Cara Isdell Lee to fit into the chic couture created especially for her for the upcoming December 6 fundraiser at the Georgia Aquarium, she had to bang back quite a few cans of Coke this fall. Yes, you read that correctly. And technically speaking, for Lee’s dress to exist at all, she and her friends, her husband, her hairdresser, her babysitter, her babysitter’s boyfriend and even the dress designer, Savannah College of Art & Design graduate Rachel Henderson were required to empty approximately 130 cans of Coca-Cola in its trademark red can. It took that many aluminum vessels to create the hand hole-punched sequins for Lee’s red and silver recycled eco-friendly outfit.
Just like those rare collectibles on eBay, Jane Fonda’s canary yellow 2013 Oscars dress, personally created for her by designer Donatella Versace on display Thursday night, had a Buy It Now price for the time-crunched consumer: $50,000. The dress served as the eye-catching silent auction centerpiece at the annual EmPower Party benefit for the Fonda-founded Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power & Potential at the Georgia Aquarium downtown.
