The 2016 Academy Awards red carpet was full of designer looks, but one dress was made in socially conscious style.
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.
Snow White and the Huntsman actress Lily Cole also wore a sustainable dress to the Oscars — by Vivienne Westwood.
“As sustainable fashion becomes more urgent, Red Carpet Green Dress is honored to partner with two rising stars, Sophie Turner and Lily Cole, showcasing that fashion can be humane, environmentally friendly, and absolutely stunning,” Cameron said in a statement.

“We’re also thrilled and honored that the formidable Vivienne Westwood and her team are once again behind the scenes working fashion magic with us.”
In a world of fast fashion, we can definitely get behind a cause that supports sustainability and style.
