Colin Firth, Oscar winner for Best Actor in the film "The Kings Speech" went eco-friendly on the red carpet at the Academy Awards Sunday night. Firth and his wife Livia wore environmentally friendly clothing in an effort to raise awareness that you can look red carpet fabulous and be eco-conscious. Livia is the founder of a Fair Trade boutique called Eco Age in London. She wore a gown made from old dresses and told Britain’s The Sun,
“It defies what you normally see on the red carpet. It’s really beautiful – it’s pretty but also has a message.” Not only did she wear sustainable clothes to the Oscars, she has been making the red carpet green at all of her husband’s events. She also convinced him to go eco friendly, as Firth looked very handsome in a Tom Ford suit made from eco-friendly materials.
