Oh, to have the world’s top designers to cater for your every whim… Each awards season, Livia Firth, film producer and very beautiful wife of Mr Darcy Colin, sets a challenge for top talent to come up with an eco-friendly dress for her to wear.
Last year, she chose a pink upcycled gown by Gary Harvey, which was made from 11 different gowns reclaimed from the era of the King’s Speech – and wore it to the Oscar’s ceremony where Colin picked up Best Actor gong for the same film. Neat, right? This year the likes of Tom Ford, Gucci, Paul Smith and Stella McCartney have signed up to design dresses either for Livia or for a different celeb – all will be revealed on the eve of the events.
We do know however, that Livia has chosen an eco-friendly Giorgio Armani frock to wear on the red carpet for the Golden Globes this Sunday. Will it be green? You’ll have to wait and see…
