Shaking And Stirring Up The Red Carpet with Naomie Harris

The Red Carpet, Green Dress initiative, judged by Pier Crush Vivienne Westwood, has a winner, and a star and walk the winning design down the red carpet at this year's Oscar ceremony.

Ghanaian-born designer Michael Badger has won the competition, launched in 2010 by Suzi Amis Cameron, wife of "Avatar" director James Cameron, to help promote ethical and sustainable behaviour in fashion. His design, which beat out some ferocious competition, will be worn by Bond beauty Naomie Harris at the awards. It seems the stars of Skyfall have eco-cred to spare--Naomie's co-star, Javier Bardem, wore a Gucci organic-cotton tux and shirt, and a recycled satin tie to the film's London premiere.

Michael will now be working closely with Vivienne to get his design ready for the awards on February 24th. The dress will be created on cradle-to-cradle principles, and certified by a co-sponsor of this year's competition, the Cradle To Cradle Products Innovation Institute.

Congrats to Michael, and here's to seeing more designs like his on the red carpet soon!
