So, who is she?
Livia Firth is the beautiful wife of Colin Firth aka Mr Darcy from the Pride and Prejudice movie. She’s also a talented film producer in her own right and has a PhD too!
Impressive. What else do I need to know?
This gorgeous Italian lady is also the creative director of Eco Age – an ethical store in London – which sells gorgeous eco-friendly clothing, accessories and shoes, and yummy organic beauty products.
So, she’s a cool girl, but why is she a Global Cool girl?
She’s worked so hard for ethical fashion over the years, and we haven’t missed a beat. But this year, Livia Firth has vowed to wear only ethical and sustainable dresses on the red carpet at all the awards ceremonies she attends. She kicked off The Green Carpet Challenge at the Golden Globes this month in her first sustainable gown made from recycled plastic bottles.
Here comes the science bit…
