For the fifth year in a row, Suzy Amis Cameron made sure the Oscars' red carpet contained a bit of green as well.
Cameron's "Red Carpet Green Dress" competition, which challenges fashion designers to create Academy Award-worthy looks using sustainable and ethical materials, was represented last night by "Hercules" actor Kellan Lutz and "Quantum Solace" Bond girl Olga Kurylenko.
According to sources, the 34-year-old actress' gown was made "from 100% GOTS certified organic peace silk and 100% GOTS certified organic silk. It was first hand-dyed with Sappanwood – a legume which produces a reddish-colored dye and is sustainable due to its fast growth rate – then overdyed with madder root to give it a deeper shade of red."
As for Lutz, his tuxedo jacket is "45% certified silk and 55% rPET; the pants are made of hemp and plant-dyedwith logwood; the waistcoat is made of hemp and 100-year-old
spitalfield silk and was dyed with marigold flowers."
Check out Lutz and Kurylenko being interviewed about their participation in the eco-friendly campaign below.
