Lyndsay Cruz is Oxfam America’s senior advisor for public figures, working with celebrities to amplify Oxfam’s work around the world.
This past Wednesday night, Vanity Fair, Oxfam Ambassadors Colin and Livia Firth, and Italian clothing designer Ermenegildo Zegna hosted an event at the Chateau Marmont in LA to benefit Oxfam America and the Green Carpet Challenge. Anna Zegna, Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, and Oxfam America’s president Ray Offenheiser joined Celebrity Ambassadors Kristin Davis, Djimon Hounsou and his wife Kimora Lee Simmons, and Emile Hirsh. Other celebrity supporters in attendance included Mia Wasikowska, Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Cameron Diaz, Gary Oldman, and Kenneth Branagh. (You can read more about the event in the LA Times and watch video coverage on Entertainment Tonight.)
The Green Carpet Challenge, founded by Oxfam Ambassador Livia Firth and British journalist Lucy Siegle, pairs glamour and ethics to raise the profile of sustainable style at the world’s most high profile red carpet events. Oxfam is a charitable partner of the Green Carpet Challenge.
