Livia Firth: I'm a princess at A-list parties

Colin Firth's wife Livia feels like Cinderella when she attends red carpet events.

The eco-fashionista has been to a host of high-profile Hollywood bashes with her Oscar-winning spouse. Livia loves to dress up for a big occasion and enjoys transforming into a glamorous woman with the help of borrowed designer items.

"I'm like Cinderella because I borrow shoes for the red carpet then return them by midnight," Livia joked in the latest issue of UK magazine Marie Claire. "I normally live in eight-year-old Camper boots."

The 42-year-old usually opts for chic, black outfits. However, Livia's eye is often drawn to pieces designed by London-based eco designer Henrietta Ludgate and she feels inspired to experiment with colour.

"I nearly always wear black, but I love this designer so much I wear her bright orange linen tops," she explained.

Livia went on to reveal the inspirations behind her own creations. She says spending time with her children has influenced her jewellery designs.

"I designed [a skull necklace] for," she added. "I have a thing about skulls from playing pirates with my sons - we even have skull decorations at home."
