Livia Firth saved the best for last in her Green Carpet Challenge for Vogue.com with a gorgeous upcycled gown by Orsola de Castro. The wife of Best Actor Oscar nominee Colin Firth, Livia has been drawing attention to the sustainable fashion scene by wearing a different green dress to every red carpet during the awards season.

“I’m wearing a dress made for me by Orsola de Castro,” Livia revealed to Vogue earlier. “She is behind one of my favourite labels, From Somewhere, and is totally on my wavelength. Orsola is the queen of upcycling so everything about the dress has been salvaged from the waste bins of some very prestigious labels, no less, so my dress will be made from waste but you’d never know. I’m also wearing ethical pink diamonds from Australia, by Cajella (on loan of course), and my bag has been made for me by Bruno at Roger Vivier from offcuts. It’s really beautiful.”
