As expected, Livia Firth announced on Twitter that all of the sustainable, ethical gowns she wore for this year’s Green Carpet Challenge will be auctioned off for charity.

From what we can tell Christie’s will auction off both the Oscars and Golden Globes gowns (with the cash going to the Natural Resources Defense Council), while Oxfam will auction off the rest.

“The Green Carpet Challenge has always been about raising the profile of designs and designers who do things different to the mainstream,”wrote Firth in a piece on the Huffington Post yesterday. “They prioritise social and environmental justice along with their aesthetic. It has also been responsible for educating me on the trials and triumphs of wearing fashion with ethics. Once you get into this I don’t think it’s possible to go back.”

Check out some of Livia’s 2011 Green Carpet winners below:

:: 2011 Academy Awards (Designer Gary Harvey)
:: 2011 Golden Globes (Designer Jeff Garner, Prophetik)

:: 2011 BAFTA Awards (Designer Nina Skarra)
:: 2011 London Film Critics’ Circle Awards (Designer Henrietta Ludgate)
:: 2011 The King’s Speech Paris Premiere (Designer Junky Styling)
