Looks like Michelle Williams won’t be a hard sell for Livia Firth’s Green Carpet Challenge. The My Week With Marilyn actress, who snagged a Best Actress nomination, turned up at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards on Sunday in a custom H&M Conscious Collection gown, according to Grazia Daily. Designed for Williams by the Swedish retailer—under the advisement of her stylist, Kate Young—the column dress features a gold-draped organic-cotton bodice, a black satin-crepe trumpet skirt, and a flower-embellished belt. Although an exact copy of the gown won’t be available at H&M stores, a similar top and a skirt will be part of the latest Conscious Collection in April.

Livia Firth wasn’t the only one shining on the green carpet at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards on Sunday. On what Firth describes as a “historic night” for her Green Carpet Challenge, the Eco Age creative director (and wife of award-winning actor Colin Firth) recruited two BAFTA nominees: The Help’s Viola Davis, wearing a salmon-pink Valentino gown made of recycled plastic bottles, and Shame leading man Michael Fassbender, who cut a dashing form in an ethical-wool tuxedo by Georgio Armani.

Shove a ruby-slippered Dorothy Gale into a time machine, direct her to Studio 54 at the height of its hedonism with a pit stop in 1960s Carnaby Street and, with a little bit of luck, you might end up with Libertine’s Fall/Winter 2012 show at New York Fashion Week. The lineup of vintage threads, retooled by L.A. designer Johnson Hartig into punk-edge designs for men and women, beams with a mischievous exuberance, a giddy procession of mother-of-pearl-studded biker jackets, Muppet-pelt boas, and metallic paillettes that throb like miniature disco balls under the house lights.
