Eco Malibu Barbie wins Miss Congeniality and the Peoples Choice Award

What a whirl-wind EcoDivalicious Weekend.  Lauren Selman, one of my fave peeps in the whole universe ran for Miss Malibu this weekend.  And when she mentioned the idea of running in a pageant to me, we knew right away that the only way it would truely mean something is if she created a completely Green Pageant Campaign.  This entailed Lauren to trust me a whole bunch on what to wear, how to wear it and consulting her makeup and hair choices.

From her head to her toes we has so much fun…we even replaced the notorious “pageant vaseline on the teeth so you can smile all day” with Waxelene. Lauren even got a sugar based spray tan, eco waxed, non-toxic mani-pedi, organic and biodegradable makeup, and we even stashed her accessories in LunchSkins instead of plastic baggies…the works.
