One of the best show's during Fall 08 Fashion Week was Shalom Harlow's Earth Pledge. The supermodel culled together the cream of the designer and model crop to show off a series of stunning, eco-friendly outfits. This year's Fashion-Cares-About-The-Environment event will take place at the Museum of Natural History on September 4th. The Angela Lindvall hosted runway show doubles as the launch of the Be Eco-Chic campaign. Donna Karan, Ralph Rucci and Vena Cava are a few of the designer's showing looks modeled by Alek Wek, Lauren Hutton, Alexandra Richards, Patti Hansen and "a smattering of TV stars" according to WWD. Everyone should show at museums - they really make the best venues - but we will miss Shalom.

So how has this changed the American beauty ideals, and, by default, the American modeling industry?
