Colin Firth, 50, can wear a T-shirt and look gorgeous (which he did in some fair trade coffee ads for Oxfam). But his wife, Livia, gets the fashion props for Oscar dressing; she wore an "upcycled" Gary Harvey gown. "All the pieces we are using are from the era of The King's Speech. Gary is all about authenticity, so wanted to be sure we get the right fabrics and the right vibe," she wrote earlier last week on her UK Vogue blog. "Every element — including zips, corsetry and the original toiles — is recycled. The only thing that we've used that is new is the thread that actually stitches the dress together."
