50885053.jpgFor this year’s red carpet at the 80th Academy Awards, Access Hollywood’s Nancy O’Dell has chosen a sustainable gown from acclaimed designer Linda Loudermilk. The custom-made dress is made of hemp silk with organic cotton and “vintage findings” as accents on the front. It will also have a lining of fabric made from mineral-rich seaweed called SeaCell. From the release,

“With her daughter’s future to be concerned about, O’Dell is more conscious of all of the effects that play into the environment that her daughter is growing up in. She says, ‘I am so excited to be wearing an eco-friendly dress to the Oscars! The birth of my baby girl, Ashby, really got me thinking in-depth about the future and what kind of world she may grow up in if we don’t do something now. Thanks to environmentally-conscious designer Linda Loudermilk, it was incredibly easy being green and glamorous at the same time.'”

As we’ve been seeing at various fashion shows over the past 12 months, designers are increasingly turning to sustainable fabrics to accent and create new designs. Having O’Dell choose something from Loudermilk for the Oscars is a great indication that acceptance of fabrics made from seaweed or other organic sources is slowly becoming a reality. We’ll keep our eyes open for any additional ‘green’ gowns this Sunday.
