On February 21, Vanity Fair and the Fiat brand, along with Academy Award–winning composer Hans Zimmer and Academy Award–winning director Ron Howard, hosted “Una Notte Verde,” an exclusive cocktail party at Cecconi’s West Hollywood to benefit The United Nations’ International Labour Organization (ILO) and its Green Jobs Programme.
Notable attendees included the evening’s co-hosts Hans Zimmer and Ron Howard, along with Vanity Fair Vice President and Publisher Edward Menicheschi and guests Josh Hartnett, Alyssa Milano, Adrien Brody, Michael Moore, Lake Bell, Mehcad Brooks, Dennis Haysbert, Analeigh Tipton, Annabeth Gish, Kathleen Robertson, Chelsie Hightower, Jason Bonham, Louise Roe and more.
Green jobs and the promotion of a green economy are pivotal for achieving economic and social development that is also environmentally sustainable. The ILO’s Green Jobs Programme works in many countries, offering research, guidance, and practical tools to help governments, businesses, and workers make the transition to a green economy.
As part of the evening’s green initiatives, the Fiat brand introduced the all-new 2013 Fiat 500e. Designed to be a no-compromise electric car, the 2013 Fiat 500e combines the Cinquecento’s successful small-car formula of purposeful Italian design and fun-to-drive characteristics with an environmentally responsible zero-emissions design. The invitation for “Una Notte Verde,” was created using 100 percent recycled materials and includes flower, herb, and vegetable seeds that can be planted by recipients following the event.
Guests in attendance, as well as the general public, have the exclusive opportunity to download a music track, composed by Hans Zimmer, from the upcoming film Rush, directed by Ron Howard. It is currently available for download at www.rushmovie.com.
Vanity Fair and Fiat’s celebration of “Una Notte Verde” to benefit The United Nations’ ILO and the Green Jobs Programme was part of Vanity Fair Campaign Hollywood, the magazine’s annual week-long series of events and one-of-a-kind moments in support of charitable causes leading up to the Academy Awards.
