Watch the First Digital Green Carpet Fashion Awards Here

Last month, we got a glimpse of what the first virtual Green Carpet Fashion Awards might look like. A high-resolution digital rendering depicted La Scala, the historic opera house in Milan, completely overgrown with flowers, greenery, and even a glittering waterfall. At the time, Livia Firth, the founder of Eco-Age (which works in partnership with the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana on the GCFA) said the idea was to create a “portal into a new era,” one where the fashion industry is more sustainable, equitable, and human. She teased that the digital GCFAs would also incorporate holograms, augmented reality, and special effects. Needless to say, it will be a lot more forward-thinking than the Zoom awards shows we’ve seen thus far.

Tonight, you can see it all play out in real time here. The digital Green Carpet Fashion Awards are streaming globally on YouTube via the Fashion Channel at 5:00pm

Environmentally-friendly DIY lovers can now experience the first ever “green shopping aisle” at select Homebase stores, complete with real grass walkways and foliage.

The aisle will be full of products aimed to make homes more sustainable and the aisles themselves will be lined with evergreen climbers and lush vegetation.

The aesthetically-pleasing green aisles will be initially launched in five stores – Haringey in London, Edinburgh, Bridgend, Birmingham and Leeds – with more to follow.

The hardware store chain has partnered with Smart Energy GB to showcase how shoppers can make their homes more sustainable.

Draymond Green tried to be like Tony Romo as analyst

Draymond Green is enjoying himself while the NBA Finals tip off for the first time in six years without the Golden State Warriors.

The three-time NBA champion spent part of the postseason as a guest on TNT’s “Inside the NBA” and drew inspiration from a fellow athlete-turned-analyst to do it.

Draymond Green inspired by Tony Romo

Green was praised for his work on the show and told the New York Times’ Marc Stein he takes cues from Tony Romo, the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback and current star of NFL broadcasts.

“I love to try to educate through the TV position,” Green said in Stein’s newsletter (H/T Awful Announcing), citing Romo.

“The offense is lined up and the defense is lined up and he’s telling us exactly what the offense is about to do because of what he sees,” Green said. “Similar to Tony Romo, I want to give the world

Dianna Martinez started her business, the L.A. Garden, with a lightbulb moment — literally. Three years ago, her father taught her how to grow a pothos cutting in a lightbulb, which became her first product and sparked a whole line of ideas that three years later has turned the L.A. Garden into a thriving business and staple at art fairs and farmers markets around town.

Martinez, a Boyle Heights native,
