Ever heard of the Green Carpet Fashion Awards ? An annual event attended by some of the world's most famous stars, it has one clear aim: to utilise the power of fashion and entertainment to champion sustainable living.

Founded by activist, and co-founder of globally renowned Eco-Age, Livia Firth, Firth is hugely passionate about creating more advocacy and awareness of the global issues that surround climate action. So while you might think it's just another Red Carpet event with some of your favourite actors, singers and designers in stunning outfits, think again. 

"The Green Carpet Fashion Awards promotes intersectional positive change," Firth shares exclusively with Marie Claire UK. "We do this during Oscars week, maximising the power and reach of the fashion and entertainment industry to reach the largest audience possible."

She continues: "In this way, we create a giant megaphone that focuses attention on leaders, champions their work, and calls for a more holistic approach to help us meet the world’s most pressing challenges."

Held in Los Angeles this year, the event saw several world-renowned hosts including Zendaya, Cate Blanchett, Julianne Moore, the Minister of Indigenous Peoples of Brazil Sonia Guajajara, and Ugandan climate justice activist Vanessa Nakate.

What are the Green Carpet Fashion Awards?

As above, the awards celebrate people and organisations embodying key sustainable roles. According to Firth, the selection of the yearly honourees is evaluated according to six cultural archetypes. 

These include:  

  • The Visionary
  • The Messenger
  • The Rebel
  • The Healer
  • The Sage
  • The Futurist.

"In addition, every year the Green Carpet Fashion Awards celebrates an array of inspirational young leaders who are helping to drive political, social, and environmental solutions for a brighter collective future," shares Firth. "Bringing them together with the GCFA honourees creates a unique space for leaders to shape interconnected, and intergenerational, positive change."

Long championed by celebrities and climate activists, last year saw the likes of Leonardo Di Caprio, Edward Enniful and Simone Ashley in attendance. And this year was no different. To see the best looks of the night, keep scrolling.
