Viola Davis - Firth Outfits Bafta Stars In Eco-friendly Outfits

Viola Davis and Michael Fassbender showed off their green credentials by wearing recycled clothes to the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (Bafta) Awards on Sunday (12Feb12).
Colin Firth's eco-warrior wife Livia convinced Fassbender to wear a Giorgio Armani tuxedo made from ethical wool as part of her Green Carpet Challenge.
As part of the test, top fashion houses must use recycled materials for their red-carpet looks.
Firth reveals there was a last-minute panic for top designer Valentino after the material for Davis' pink recycled soda can gown was almost lost in transit.
In a post on her Vogue blog, she writes, "On a scale of calm to blind panic, we were somewhere near the latter when the fabric for Viola's dress got stuck in an epic snowstorm on the way to Turin. If it weren't for the valiant attempts of my dear friend Giorgio taking the fabric from Milan to Rome on the train, I think Viola would be wearing actual soda cans rather than the miraculously recycled ones."
She adds, "We struck gold with Viola Davis, who has also revealed herself not just as a prodigiously talented actress but as a true fashion icon during the past few weeks on the world's red carpets. I hope you find the combination and this first ever eco Valentino gown as breathtaking as I do."
Both Colin and Livia donned tuxedos made of sustainable materials - and the Italian beauty was thrilled with her menswear-inspired choice, adding: "Contrary to what I would've thought, the tux makes me feel incredibly feminine, and quite naughty (I know, I know - too much information!)"
