In August I wrote about Project Green Search’s call out to eco-friendly models to participate in its green modeling competition.

Now the ten finalists are heading to Hollywood for the last part of the competition. The ten finalists include Rachel Avalon, Ariel Clay, Zion Francis, Rachael Joy, Vanessa Meier, Leilani Munter, Karen Pannocchia, Erika Schmid, Juliana Tran and Jessica Williamson.

The finalists will participate in an eco-fashion shoot with photographer Courtney Dailey on November 5. Each finalist will model apparel and accessories from eco-designers Deborah Lindquist, Peligrosa, Mountains of the Moon, Stewart+Brown, Rain Tees, Charmone Shoes, Jonano, Smart Glass, EcoSkin, Hess Natur, and McFlashPants. Josie Maran and her team and Aliesh Pierce will do the finalists’ make-up using Josie Maran Cosmetics and Jane Iredale mineral cosmetics. Using its own nontoxic product line, Shades Natural Color, a salon in Beverly Hills, will have its stylists do the models’ hair.

On November 6, the judges will hold one-on-one interviews with each finalist. Then, that evening, the Project Green Search Wrap Party will be held at the ECCO Ultra Lounge in Hollywood. At the party the finalists will mingle with the guests while the judges critique the models on their speaking abilities and their representation of the eco-friendly brands they will be wearing. The judges will choose a winner that night. The event also benefits Global Green, a nonprofit environmental organization dedicated to creating a sustainable future.

Follow the models’ progress and find out who the next green “it” girl will be on the Project Green Search website.
