Red Carpet Green Dress is a sustainable fashion campaign founded by Suzy Amis Cameron fundraising for MUSE School CA
Red Carpet Green Dress is an internationally recognized organization combining the worlds of fashion and sustainability. Set to celebrate its’ tenth anniversary, the campaign was conceived by Suzy Amis Cameron (actress, environmental advocate, and author of OMD: The Simple, Plant-Based Program to Save Your Health, Save Your Waistline and Save the Planet) during the press tour for her husband, James Cameron’s film “Avatar”. Our goal is to draw attention to the importance of more sustainable practices in fashion by challenging designers from around the world to think about fashion in an eco-friendly context.
Throughout the year Red Carpet Green Dress as an organisation engages with educators, environmental leaders, designers, businesses and influencers within the sustainable design realm to implement change through supply chains, in schools and in businesses. To date our partners and supporters have included and include TESLA, Vivienne Westwood, Armani, ESMOD, Reformation and other brands committed to the green and ethical message we champion. Each year the campaign has worked with internationally acclaimed designers to dress stars in ethical formal wear for the red carpet at the Annual Academy Awards®.
The contest element alone challenges designers to create an Oscar® worthy dress made entirely of sustainable materials, while actors advocate for a message of sustainability and longevity within the global fashion industry.
Numerous talents have stood with Red Carpet Green Dress and walked the red carpet in the name of sustainability including, but not limited to, Priyanka Bose (Lion) Emma Roberts (Scream Queens), Sophie Turner (X-Men, Game of Thrones), Naomie Harris (Moonlight), Gina Rodriguez (Annihilation, Jane the Virgin), Kellan Lutz (Twilight), Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out), Zoey Deutch, Camila Alves, Jake McDorman (American Sniper) and Missi Pyle (Gone Girl). Since its inception, the campaign has grown to include brand collaborations, internships, knowledge-share platforms and educational experiences for students.
The Red Carpet Green Dress campaign works with a diverse and inclusive range of talent to ensure that we remain inspiring and reflect the world around us as accurately as possible. We believe that diversity should be the standard, not the exception. Take a look at our collaborations on the red carpet here.
EACH YEAR WE ARE EXCITED TO ENGAGE WITH MORE AND MORE PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD – FROM STUDENTS LOOKING FOR AN OPPORTUNITY FOR IN-HOUSE LEARNING, ACROSS TO BRANDS KEEN TO WORK ON AN INNOVATIVE AND SUSTAINABLE DESIGN FOR THE OSCARS RED CARPET.
We draw attention to the importance of more sustainable practices in the fashion industry.

MUSE School CA
Red Carpet Green Dress was launched for a dual purpose. To highlight the importance of positive fashion, and to fundraise for MUSE School CA. Founded in 2006 by Suzy Amis Cameron and Rebecca Amis, MUSE School CA is a private, non-profit school offering a student-centered academic curriculum for students 2.3 to 18 years of age. MUSE School’s mission is “To Inspire and Prepare Young People to Live Consciously with Themselves, One Another, and the Planet.” At MUSE, learning is alive. Interconnections are critical between students, educators, and parents. Sustainability is key on our two beautiful, green campuses in Calabasas. Lastly, MUSE is ever-evolving by embracing change and consistently challenging ourselves in our ongoing efforts to learn, grow, and improve.
MUSE centers its educational philosophy on five pillars: Academics, Passion-Based Learning, Sustainability, Communication, and Self-Efficacy. Students and educators work together to build a personalized curriculum based on the students’ interests and passions. Find out more about the MUSE School CA here.
MUSE Students learn academics and environmental sustainability through their passions, self-efficacy and communication. With this unique edge, students go out into the world knowing themselves and what they have to offer this rapidly changing world. It’s amazing to have companies who understand the importance of contributing to the education of our children.
