Naomie Harris will wear an eco-friendly dress designed in collaboration with Vivienne Westwood at the Academy Awards 2013

It's just been announced that former InStyle cover girl, Naomie Harris, will wear a dress by Red Carpet Green Dress at this year's Oscars.

The Bond star will don a gown designed by Michael Badger, the Ghanian born fashion student who was recently announced as the winner of this year’s Red Carpet Green Dress competition, which was founded by Suzy Amis Cameron.

Michael will collaborate with Vivienne Westwood couturiers on the dress.

Naomie has said of her awards dress: “I’m thrilled to be representing Red Carpet Green Dress by wearing this beautiful design to the Oscars next month. I look forward to meeting contest winner Michael Badger and working with Dame Vivienne Westwood and her couture team as part of this exciting project.”

And, the feeling is clearly mutual, as Samata Angel, RCGD’s global campaign director, explains Naomie was selected not just for her looks and talent but also because she shares similar values, adding: “Our project is about considered creations — beautiful fashion that does not cost the earth.”

The fashion collaboration will support Cradle To Cradle Products Innovation Institute, a non-profit organisation that helps businesses to ensure products are safe for the environment, as well as sustainable.

Naomie proved her penchant for adventurous designs on the promo tour for Skyfall, so we can't wait for a glimpse of the gown come 24 February 2013!
