For this year’s Green Carpet Fashion Awards, founder Livia Firth used virtual reality to transform the La Scala theatre into a FernGulley-esque forest for a digital ceremony – which saw a Versace-clad Zendaya presented with the Visionary Award for her efforts to bolster diversity within fashion. Among the other highlights from the night? Iman bestowing the Responsible Disruption Award on social enterprise founder Anna Fiscale for Progetto Quid; a reading by Cate Blanchett – who made a notable statement by exclusively rewearing clothes at this year’s Venice Film Festival; and Maisie Williams presenting the Independent Design Award to sustainable textile designer Sindisa Khumalo. Even without a real-life green carpet, moreover, the stars turned out in their eco-friendly finest. Below, five of the best looks from the night, themed around “weaving the new thread of our society, under the principles of social and environmental justice”.
Alexa Chung in Prada
Alexa Chung rewore a custom Prada dress she had made for a British Vogue event in 2016. Meanwhile, actor Matilda de Angelis – who will appear opposite Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant in Sky Atlantic’s The Undoing this month – wore one of Prada’s Re-Nylon midi-dresses made using Aquafil’s ECONYL® regenerated nylon yarn, derived form marine plastic debris.
