Livia Firth Steps Up Her Green Carpet Challenge

If you remember Livia Firth’s 2011 Oscar gown or the video we posted of her eco shop in London, you know that this is a woman dedicated to not just wearing sustainable fashion, but being its champion. Whether it’s organic, upcycled, vintage or recycled, Livia is out to find the most fashionable choices for the girl who wants everything, including a healthy earth.

On her most recent trip to the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival, Livia wore a 50’s inspired satin strapless cocktail dress made by Reclaim-to-Wear for yoox.com. In case you want one for your very own, the dress will be available for purchase in November.

Back in May, Livia partnered with one of Ecorazzi’s favorite eco designers, Stella McCartney. Colin Firth was the host for the Met Ball in New York, so something extra special was needed. McCartney created an all-in-one jumpsuit, with a detachable skirt surrounding the fitted pants. Reclaimed vintage beads decorated the organic silk, while the skirt was made from Manila hemp.

At the Observer Ethical Awards, Firth went with a polka dotted 1950’s dress with a hand-me-down shawl given to her by a friend. Livia’s mother actually bought the dress at a market south of Rome when Livia was just a girl. Livia wasn’t the only fashion forward thinker at her table. She was sitting with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate. Perhaps eco friendly fashion came up as a topic for the night? We’d love to see Kate take part in the Green Carpet Challenge.

Check out more of Livia Firth’s creations and green trends happening over at her blog on Vogue UK, The Green Carpet Challenge.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals
