Colin Firth’ reputation as a heartthrob was cemented when he played his career-making role as Mr Darcy in the BBC adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride an Prejudice.

However, at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards 2017 on Sunday night, it was his wife that was making people swoon.

Livia Firth hit the red carpet wearing a red silk dress and electric-blue cut out shoes. She accessorised the bold look with a pair of large, crystal earrings and a matching electric blue clutch bag.

The 48-year-old founder of sustainability consultancy Eco Age looked sultry with smoky eye make-up and red lipstick.
