Last night at the Levi’s Haus in Los Angeles, renowned costume designer Arianne Phillips brought together Once Upon a Time in Hollywood stars Margot Robbie and Austin Butler to host an intimate dinner benefiting the Australian charity Youngcare. The charity provides resources and support for young adults with intense care needs, and last night marked the second time Robbie has chosen to support the cause—in 2017 she teamed up with luxury watch brand Richard Mille to raise funds for the organization.
In Quentin Tarantino’s latest film, a period piece set in 1969, at least four different vintage Levi’s pieces can be spotted. Photos of these moments were displayed throughout the party, attended by Vanessa Hudgens, Rumer Willis, and Rose Uniacke.
Earlier this year Phillips cofounded RAD (Red Carpet Advocacy) with the hope of creating purposeful philanthropic partnerships between Hollywood stars and charitable brands. Through modern, culturally-relevant advocacy campaigns that start on the red carpet, RAD intends to educate, inspire, and activate fans and followers towards social progress in all areas. “This is the first time we are doing an event,” Phillips explained. “We partnered with Levi’s because they came and asked me to do a dinner to celebrate the fact that I used a lot of vintage Levi’s in the movie. I told them that if they want the cast there, we should make it philanthropic!”
Of the film, Robbie explained, “It was a dream my entire life. I always loved Tarantino films, and I really wanted to see him work. I never dreamed as big as being in his films, and I just wanted to see how he ran a film set.” And perhaps just as exciting as Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’s big-time director were the costumes. Robbie continued to say that she would wear every single one of her onscreen looks in real life. And given how great she looks in the film, this makes perfect sense.
