Suzy Amis Cameron hosted an evening of cocktails, canapes and silent auction. The event was sponsored by Lux & Eco, Previse SkinCare, Veev, Haute Chefs and more. In attendance at the celebration were Suzy Amis Cameron, James Cameron, Kellan Lutz, Naomie Harris, Amber Valletta, Rebecca Amis, Jeff King and more.

Each year Red Carpet Green Dress has debuted stunning and sustainable fashion on the red carpet at the Oscars, most recently under the mentorship of Dame Vivienne Westwood and in collaboration with Greenpeace Detox Campaign, under the belief that Beautiful Fashion should not cost the Earth. Red Carpet Green Dress is a global sustainable design contest which was founded by Suzy Amis Cameron in 2009, the same year that her husband James Cameron’s movie, ‘Avatar’, premiered. With all of the red carpet demands the power couple faced – Suzy, came up with the idea of launching a contest to create sustainable fashion for her carpet appearances – to use the platform to share the message about the growing importance of sustainable fashion. For full photo album check out our official Facebook page here.

Kellan Lutz and Olga Kurylenko Hit The Oscar Carpet For Suzy Amis Cameron’s Red Carpet Green Dress

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Kellan & Olga

Los Angeles, CA, March 2, 2014 – Kellan Lutz and Olga Kurylenko have hit the red carpet at the 86th Annual Academy Awards® to help support the fifth year of Suzy Amis Cameron’s eco-fashion campaign, Red Carpet Green Dress. Lutz wears the campaign’s first-ever tuxedo, which was designed by contest winner Jomnarn Dul from H Brothers, one of New Zealand’s most iconic menswear brands, while Kurylenko shows off a gorgeous red gown by womenswear category winner Alice Elia, a fashion student at ESMOD in Paris.

Kurylenko’s gown is 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. Her shoes are a first time collaboration between PETA and Beyond Skin, a UK-based ethical footware and fashion label, for Red Carpet Green Dress. The vegan, faux suede, metallic-trimmed shoes are made from Dinamica, a durable material made in Italy from 100% recycled bottle tops. Continue reading

Olga Kurylenko To Reveal The Fifth Design From Suzy Amis Cameron’s Red Carpet Green Dress On The Oscar Carpet

 

 

Actress Olga Kurylenko will have the honor of walking the red carpet at the 86th annual Academy Awards on March 2nd for Red Carpet Green Dress. Kurylenko’s gown will be the sustainable vision of contest winner Alice Elia, a student of ESMOD in Paris, where she is currently being mentored through dress construction by the college’s couture team. This year marks the fifth anniversary of Red Carpet Green Dress which was conceived by Suzy Amis Cameron during the press tour for her husband James Cameron’s film Avatar. Her hope was to draw attention to the importance of more sustainable practices in fashion. “As I reflect on the past five years of the campaign, my thoughts are immediately drawn to the challenges we’ve faced in creating these gorgeous sustainable gowns,” says Amis Cameron. “While there are still great strides to be made, it’s important to point out that there are a greater number of sustainable resources available to designers today than there were five years ago.”

The campaign also raises funds for MUSE School CA, a nonprofit educational organization that Amis Cameron co-founded in Malibu Canyon. Award-winning actress Olga Kurylenko came to international prominence starring opposite Daniel Craig in the Bond film Quantum of Solace. Kurylenko established her career in France following her debut performance as a leading actress in the film L’Annulaire, and she has since occupied roles in The Water Diviner opposite Russell Crowe, Oblivion opposite Tom Cruise, Hitman, There Be Dragons and Terence Malick’s To The Wonder. “What a privilege it will be to wear Alice’s gorgeous design on the red carpet for the campaign’s fifth year, which is such a milestone for Suzy and everyone involved,” comments Kurylenko. “It’s a great honor to have been asked.”  Continue reading

Kellan Lutz To Inaugurate Menswear Category In H Brothers Tuxedo For Red Carpet Green Dress

Kellan Lutz To Inaugurate Menswear Category In H Brothers Tuxedo For Suzy Amis Cameron’s Red Carpet Green Dress

Los Angeles, CA, February 18, 2014 – Actor Kellan Lutz will wear the first sustainable tuxedo down the Oscar red carpet for Red Carpet Green Dress, Suzy Amis Cameron’s eco-fashion campaign. In October, Amis Cameron announced the addition of a menswear category to help mark the campaign’s 5th anniversary.

The winning tuxedo design was submitted by Jomnarn Dul from H Brothers, which is regarded as one of New Zealand’s most iconic menswear brands. Born in New Zealand,Dul is a 23-year-old designer who was crowned top of her class while studying menswear design at Auckland’s AUT University and has been a valuable part of the H Brothers team for two years.

Red Carpet Green Dress isn’t Dul’s first experience with conscious fashion as she leapt at the opportunity to be part of the H Brothers collaboration with EKOCYCLETM, a partnership between global music artist will.i.am and The Coca-Cola Company.

Jomnarn’s inspiration for the range of suits, which are made in part from recycled content, came from will.i.am and his very distinctive sense of style. The garments are fashion forward and make men feel confident while also making a responsible fashion choice. With a mission to bring about social change, the EKOCYCLETM brand collaborates with established brands to create products made at least in part from post consumer recycled materials. This not only empowers consumers to make more informed purchasing decisions but also educates them on everyday recycling choices.

While he began his acting career as a series regular on HBO’s The Comeback, Lutz was thrust onto the world stage when The Twilight Saga became a global phenomenon, and he most recently occupied the role of Hercules in Renny Harlin’s The Legend of Hercules. Born and raised in North Dakota, Lutz learned early on to live everyday to the fullest, so when he’s not working he divides his time between several charities including PETA. “I’m honored to have been asked to participate in this milestone year of Red Carpet Green Dress, and I look forward to wearing Dul’s winning design for H Brothers to the Oscars next month,” says Lutz. Next up, Lutz voices the role of Smilee in The Expendables 3 this August.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to have Kellan and H Brothers on board the campaign this year,” exclaims Amis Cameron. “The H Brothers partnership with EKOCYCLE is resonating with young people as does Kellan’s body of work, and I believe reaching our youth is the most effective way to bring about real change.” Global Campaign Director, Samata Angel adds, “Kellan is an incredibly talented but also cause-driven individual, so it is fantastic to have him onboard to wear this innovative tuxedo on such a prestigious and significant red carpet.”

Dul will be mentored through the creation of his design by American fashion designer and artist Jeff Garner. A long time favorite of Amis Cameron and her husband James, Garner is known for his plant-dyed garments. He received the honor of “Eco-designer of the Year” by GQ Magazine in 2010, and in 2012 , he was named as one of the “Top 40 U.S. Artists Under 40” by the Smithsonian’s Renwick Gallery.

Red Carpet Green Dress continues to support MUSE School CA, a non-profit, educational organization in Malibu Canyon, CA, that inspires and prepares young people to live consciously with themselves, one another and the planet.
