Will it be you who’s going to work alongside of the legendary Vivienne Westwood? :)

The prestigious designer and long time environmental advocate Vivienne Westwood will be this year’s judge for the Red Carpet Green Dress challenge. Westwood will participate in the process of choosing the winning designer. The winner will get to work with Westwood directly on the creation of the gown. The gown will be worn by a still unannounced actress at the 2013 Oscars.

“We are at war with our environment and our future is unsteady,” proclaims Westwood. “In order for a shift to occur we must make informed decisions to live more harmoniously with our planet, and I’ve joined Red Carpet Green Dress because its message aligns with this idea.”

The contest closes November 5th, so you still have time to submit your design. Stay tuned to find out which celebrity will strut the winning design on the red carpet!

ECOUTERRE – VIVIENNE WESTWOOD TO JUDGE, MENTOR RED CARPET GREEN DRESS CONTEST

Need another reason to enter Suzy Amis Cameron’s “Red Carpet Green Dress” competition? The annual talent search has recruited no less than Vivienne Westwood as a judge and mentor. The legendary British designer—and born-again “climate revolutionary”—will not only help choose a winning designer, but she’ll also work with him or her to bring the design to life for an as-yet-unnamed actress at the 85th Academy Awards in 2013. “We are at war with our environment and our future is unsteady,” Westwood says in a statement. “In order for a shift to occur we must make informed decisions to live more harmoniously with our planet, and I’ve joined Red Carpet Green Dress because its message aligns with this idea.”

Amis Cameron launched the competition in 2010 to find a gown to wear to the 82nd Academy Awards, where her husband, Avatar director James Cameron, was up for nine awards. Chief among her requirements was a look that combined both style and sustainability. Read more
