Game of Thrones stunner Sophie Turner opted for a sage Galvan gown made with fabric sourced ethically. The dress is part of the Red Carpet Green Dress Campaign, an organization started by Suzy Amis Cameron, director James Cameron's wife, as an effort to draw attention to the importance of sustainability in fashion.
