Who dressed green for the Golden Globes on Sunday? Besides Anna Paquin's glitzy Stella McCartney's dress, Livia Firth stole the show. Livia is accompanying her dashing husband, English Actor Colin Firth--heck, anyone who plays Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice is dashing --during Awards season while he promotes his role in Tom Ford's "A Single Man," and she is dressing sustainably for her Green Carpet Challenge, Vogue UK reports:Livia, who is also the owner of green boutique Eco Age in Chiswick, UK, shares her sustainable style pick for the night with Vogue, below.

The re-purposed Christiana Couture wedding dress was a HUGE success in the sense that I don't think I've ever had so many compliments for a dress in one night. But people here do not seem to understand the concept of ethical fashion - they loved the dress but when I revealed the origin they sort of switch off as if it's not cool anymore because it was once a wedding dress. It's made me realise that although repurposing and vintage are great, we need to go one step further and make a really strong ethical fashion statement. Which means I now have to find the perfect dress for the Screen Actors Guild Awards in exactly a week.
