A couple weeks ago I mentioned that I was working on a story about Livia and Colin Firth. I wanted to follow up with a little snapshot of the story, which appeared in the Oscar issue of The Hollywood Reporter

The story is about Livia’s effort to encourage celebrities to wear eco fashions on the red carpet. She had great success this year, with Michael Fassbender and Colin wearing tuxes made partly of recycled plastic to the BAFTA awards. Viola Davis wore a pink Valentino dress made of recycled soda bottles.

I LOVE the dress Livia is wearing the photo above. It’s an “upcycled” gown by Gary Harvey made of vintage opera-costume dresses!

Livia blogs about her efforts on the UK Vogue site. Her Twitter page, with links to behind-the-scenes candids, is fun to follow too. Plus, both sites have photos of this handsome guy:

LOVE!

PS: She also has an amazing Tumblr.

(Instagrams taken at the Soho House in West Hollywood.)

    Just a small query. When were these photos at Soho House taken please.

    • Tina says:

      On January 14th. The Soho house usually doesn’t allow photos, but this was at a private reception for Livia’s effort.

        Thank you Tina. I did do some prowling around and discovered it was when they were over there for the Golden Globes.

        • Tina says:

          Yes!! I think Livia posted a ton of photos on her twitter and blog from the brunch. It was the most amazing day. Everyone was drinking champagne and mingling on the beautiful deck..
