Eco-friendly Couture

My favorite takeaway from this year’s awards season was Livia Firth’s Green Carpet Challenge. Since 2009, Colin’s wife has made it her mission to meld sustainable design and high-fashion, proving that arm candy can be deliciously beautiful and intelligent. This year she recruited Meryl Streep, who accepted the Oscar for Best Actress in Lanvin’s first custom eco gown. Next year, I anticipate this will be one of the hottest trends come Golden Globes time. For full details of the program, visit or check out

My Object of Affection

Ricardo Laguna

“My bike (DK Bicycles flux frame) is my better half. I just can’t seem to get enough of her, whether I’m riding the trails, out in the backyard or at a contest, she’s always right there with me. If I didn’t have her in my life I’d be a lost cause. I would not have a backyard full of dirt jumps, I wouldn’t have spent countless hours digging and building ramps, and I would have never met all my great friends or traveled around the world to compete. In all honesty, I wouldn’t be Ricardo Laguna.”
