When the apocalypse finally rears its ugly head, expect tight-fitting leather to suddenly become all the rage; much to the chagrin of some Razzi readers out there. This at least is the vision behind a recent photo-shoot for the UK Telegraph, which sought to channel the wasteland theme from the Mad Max movies. Now honestly, I’m not really interested in the photos, but more the eco-friendly model/actress who’s posing in them.

In an interview accompanying the shoot, Angela Lindvall reveals that she’s a green girl at heart really trying to make a difference on the home front. “It drives me crazy to think that when I run my kitchen taps it goes down the same drain as my septic,” Lindvall told the Telegraph. “I am replumbing my house so that all waste water, apart from the toilet, goes straight into my garden.” Her next step will be to add solar panels — but don’t expect the greening to end there. Lindvall is the founder of the Collage Foundation, which promotes environmentally conscious choices among young people; as well as a project called Clean By Design – an initiative to make manufacturing facilities for the fashion industry in China more sustainable.

Ironically, Lindvall’s next move in the entertainment industry may be with a starring role in a remake of Mad Max. She was recently called back for a second audition — calling the photo-shoot with the Telegraph “an omen”. Let’s hope the real outfits are something more comfortable.
