For Michael Fassbender, two times the charm. The German-Irish actor, who snagged a Best Actor nomination for his role in Steve Jobs, arrived at the 73rd Golden Globe Awards on Sunday wearing a black grain de poudre tuxedo designed exclusively by Tom Ford for the Green Carpet Challenge, an initiative co-founded by Eco-Age creative director Livia Firth to raise the profile of sustainable fashion on the red carpet. Derived from Oeko-Tex-certified, European-spun and -woven wool, and embellished with satin details, the suit marks Fassbender’s second turn at playing eco-ambassador.

“I am very excited to have two wonderful men supporting the Green Carpet Challenge at this year’s Golden Globes,” Firth said in a statement. “To kick the awards season off with both Tom [Ford] and Michael [Fassbender] and have them celebrate the seventh year of the Green Carpet Challenge rocks!”

Actors who have taken part in past Green Carpet Challenge appearances include Bradley Cooper, Javier Bardem, and Firth’s Oscar-winning husband, Colin Firth.
