Colin & Livia Firth in Cannes

Colin Firth was in Cannes these past few days, looking sharp again and accompanied by his wife Livia, who had her own business interests to represent there as well.

First we have the obligatory airport shots…

… and shots taken outside his hotel…

Livia is a huge campaigner for sustainable fashion and has her own Eco Age company doing so. She lobbies, makes documentaries, gives talks, and when accompanying Colin promotes eco friendly (and labour-conditions-friendly) fashion. Her latest call is to only buy clothes you will wear at least 30 times (oh my, she should see my closet… the stuff in there is so old, I generally wear everything 1000 times!). She regularly wears clothes her mum used to wear and she did so again in Cannes, wearing a pink dress her mum was pictured wearing in 1968:


And Colin is there to support Livia’s projects when he can…

The Firths were also at the Chopard party (also pictured with French actress Marion Cotillard) promoting fair and sustainable jewellery.

And then later came the premiere of the new movie Loving, about a history-making interracial couple in 1950s Virginia, a movie that Colin co-produced. I so very much want to see this movie, the topic is right up my alley! I love this picture where Colin delightedly embraces the film’s star Joel Edgerton at a party:

Of course there was also the Loving premiere itself, with the Firths looking very dapper and beautiful…

On her instagram Livia mentioned wearing that premiere dress before:

And after all that glamour, the Firths are back in London again… their cat seems surprised!

… and Colin is filming the Kingsmen sequel (in a pink vest and apparently not dead) in Greenwich! The place we were at only two weeks ago!

    They look good. But I too, wonder about the advice to wear something at least 30 times — I wear my clothes till they wear out, usually. Very occasionally I give something away (as two years ago, when I’d lost two clothing sizes), but most of my clothing is rag capable when I am finished with it. Recently I read some ecological advice that said “only run your dishwasher when it’s full” and I was like — there are people who run empty dishwashers? (???)

    1. I think the #30wears thing must be something for the rich and famous – I am guessing they are more the ones not wanting to be seen in something more than once than us ‘regular’ folk. If you have lots of money, it is easier to waste stuff like clothes… so, it’s good she’s trying to change that.
      And yeah why on earth would anyone run an empty dishwasher?!?
