[UPDATE: Livia Firth tweeted that Colin is NOT wearing organic. So either the Daily Mail misquoted him or the actor misspoke. Either way, it begs the question: Why not wear something sustainable to match Livia? Obligation to Ford? Original article follows...]

When it comes to sustainable fashion choices, Colin Firth has a very good teacher.

His wife Livia, who will be hitting the Oscars’ red carpet in a gown made from 11 recycled dresses, is quickly building a name for herself in sustainable fashion – thanks in large part to her 2nd annual “Green Carpet Challenge” and an eye for ethical style.

“It’s all too easy not to think about these things but Livia educated me on the importance of knowing where the clothes you wear come from and I feel a moral duty to do so,’ Colin told the UK Daily Mail.

Joining his wife on the green side, Firth will don a 100% organic Tom Ford dinner suit for the occasion.

It’s important to know where raw materials come from,” he added. “I asked Tom, who assured me all of his fabrics are sourced organically in Italy. He didn’t mind at all. Tom’s very proud of all his sourcing and materials.”

Can’t wait to see these two on the red carpet tomorrow night!
