The actress says, "I'm so excited that Carolina Herrera has created this gown for me with elegance and ethics in mind. It's gorgeous and edgy and it thrills me to be a part of a fashion moment that hasn't compromised itself in creativity yet has the important story of using all sustainable fabrics and techniques."
The star couple wore the outfits as part of Colin Firth's eco warrior wife Livia's Green Carpet Challenge (GCC).

The screen stars wed in an intimate California ceremony, just one day after they sparked rumours they had secretly become man and wife by sporting matching wedding bands in Los Angeles.
A representatiave for Wood tells JustJared.com, "Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell were married on October 30 in California. The bride wore a custom dress by Carolina Herrera. It was a small ceremony with close family and friends."
Wood took to Twitter.com on Wednesday (31Oct12) to express her delight, writing, "Words cannot describe the happiness i am feeling. Overwhelming."
She met the Billy Elliot star in 2005 while they filmed a music video for Green Day's Wake Me Up When September Ends.
Looks like Evan Rachel Wood is a married woman these days. The actress tied the not with fellow actorperson Jamie Bell (also known as Billy Elliot himself!) on Tuesday, according to People. Bell and Wood, who first met and dated in 2005 after co-starring in the music video for Green Day's "Wake Me Up When September Ends," got coordinating tattoos with each other's first initials because that's a thing that young cool couples do!
"The bride wore a custom dress by Carolina Herrera," the rep said in a statement. "It was a small ceremony with close family and friends." Which, it would've had to have been small—who gets married on a Tuesday?
It is reported that Wood and Bell have been engaged since January of this year. Hollywood.com has reached out for a comment, but did not hear back at the time of publication.
Mazels all around for the happy couple!

The Sex and the City star married her fiancee Christine Marinoni in May (12), not long after she shaved her head to play a cancer patient in Broadway play Wit.
Nixon has now revealed her dramatic new look caused tensions as she prepared for her big day.
She tells America's Elle magazine, "I'd shaved my head to play a professor with ovarian cancer in Wit and my hair had just started to grow back. My wife was worried that my being bald was all anybody would want to talk about. My mother kept making suggestions like, 'Look at this cunning beaded cap Whitney Houston wore to her wedding, isn't it great?'"
The actress turned to her wedding dress designer, Herve Pierre, creative director at Carolina Herrera, for help.
She adds, "I considered wearing a veil but luckily Herve Pierre came up with something better, just a little bit of silver and white ribbon wrapped twice around my head, to which we affixed some small Fred Leighton diamond love birds.
"It made me feel like Tatiana from A Midsummer Night's Dream and you want to have that kind of magical feel on your wedding day."
The Smash actress was named the One to Watch (Female) while Gossip Girl's Westwick took home the male version of the trophy at the ceremony, held in Manhattan's Lincoln Center in conjunction with New York Fashion Week.
Katie Holmes also attended the gala to present an award to Carolina Herrera, who was named Designer of the Year, while actress Amy Adams gave the Celebrity Stylist of the Year statue to Cristina Ehrlich.
TV star Nicole Richie was on hand to recognise her personal hairstylist Andy Lecompte, and movie set-dresser Sandy Powell, who won an Oscar for her work on Shakespeare in Love, picked up Film Costume Designer of the Year.
Cynthia Nixon finally made it official: the Emmy-winning actress, best known to the masses as Miranda from Sex and the City, has married her girlfriend Christine Marioni after their three-year engagement. (We couldn't help but wonder, if it had been another two years, would it have gotten the movie treatment, too?) According to People, Nixon, 46, and Marinoni, 45, wed on Sunday, May 27 in New York. The couple, who have been dating since 2004, have a 1-year-old son Max together. (Nixon has two other children from a previous relationship.) In a statement given to People by her rep, "Nixon wore a custom dress by Carolina Herrera" to the long-awaited nuptials. Carrie would be so proud. The wedding came as an especially joyous one for the couple, who became engaged at a time when same-sex marriage was not yet legal in the state of New York. Nixon, who was recently seen on Broadway in the cancer drama Wit (which earned her a Tony nomination,) told Newsweek in 2011 after that law was changed, "As a nation, I think we're at a turning point in the fight for marriage equality. For the first time, a majority of Americans say gay people should be allowed to be married – not just allowed to have civil uniones, but marry. The distinction is important: when you say to somebody, 'This is my wife' or 'This is my husband,' everybody understands." So congrats Cynthia, on starting the next chapter with your wife Christine.

Much like its Greek mythological source material Wrath of the Titans is light on dramatic characterization sticking to blunt moral lessons and fantastical battles to tell its epic tale. That's perfectly acceptable for its 100 minute run time in which director Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles) unleashes an eclectic hoard of monsters upon his gruff demigod hero Perseus. The creature design is jagged gnarly and exaggerated not unlike a twelve-year-old's sugar high-induced crayon creations — which is perfect as Wrath is tailor made to entertain and enamor that slice of the population.
Clash of the Titans star Sam Worthington once again slips on the sandals to take on a not-quite-based-on-a-myth adventure a mission that pits Perseus against the greatest force in the universe: Kronos formally-incarcerated father of the Gods. A few years after his last adventure Perseus is grieving for his deceased wife and caring for their lone son but a visit from Zeus (Liam Neeson) alerts the warrior to a task even more urgent than his current seabass fishing gig. Irked that the whole Kraken thing didn't work out Hades (Ralph Fiennes) with the help of Zeus' disaffected son Ares (Edgar Ramirez) is preparing to unleash Kronos — and only Perseus has the required machismo to stop him. But Perseus enjoys the simple life and brushes off Zeus forcing the head deity to take matters into his own hands…just as Hades and Ares planned. The diabolical duo capture Zeus and having no one else to turn to Perseus proceeds into battle.
The actual reasoning for all the goings on in Wrath of the Titans tend to drift into the mystical realm of convolution but the ensemble and Liebesman's visual visceral directing techniques keep the messy script speeding along. As soon as one starts wondering why Perseus would ever need to hook up with battle-ready Andromeda (Rosamund Pike) or Poseiden's navigator son Agenor (Toby Kebbell) Liebesman and writers Dan Mazeu and David Johnson throw in another bombastic set piece another three-headed four-armed 10 000-fanged monstrosity on screen. Perseus' journey pits him against a fire-breathing Chimera a set of Cyclopses a shifting labyrinth (complete with Minotaur) and all the dangers that come with Hell itself. The sequences have all the suspense of an action figure sandbox brawl but on a towering IMAX screen they're geeky fun. If only the filler material was a bit more logical and interesting the final product would be the slightest bit memorable.
Liebesman reaps the best performances he possibly can from Wrath's silly formula Worthington again proves himself a charismatic underrated leading man. As the main trio of Gods Neeson Fiennes and Ramirez completely acknowledge how goofy shooting lightning bolts out of their hands must look on screen but they own it with campy fun tones. But the film's overwhelming CG spectacle suffocates the glimmer of great acting opting for slice-and-dice battle scenes over ridiculous (and fun) epic speak nonsense. If a movie has Liam Neeson as the top God it shouldn't chain him up in molten lava shackles for a majority of the time.
Wrath of the Titans is a non-offensive superhero movie treatment of classic heroes that feels more like an exercise in 3D monster modeling than filmmaking. Its 3D makeover never helps the creatures or Perseus pop turning Wrath into an even muddier affair than the single-planed alternative (although unlike Clash of the Titans you won't have 3D shaky-cam blur burned directly into your retinas). The movie reaches for that child sense of wonderment but instead cranks out a picture that may not even hold a child's attention.
