Colin, 58, looked neat in a navy blue suit with a matching colored tie, crisp white shirt and stylish black square frame glasses.
While his Italian film producer, Livia, 49, effortlessly looked chic in a salmon pink silk dress down to the floor with a dramatic cape on it.
She combined the garment with a champagne-colored envelope bag and blue hanging earrings, which stylized her brunette locks in a curly, dried-up hairstyle.
The Franca Sozzani Award was created in 2017 by the family of the late Vogue Italia editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani after her death in 2016 after a cancer battle.

The prestigious award honors women who have made a difference in both their social obligations and their artistic work. It has become an annual event held in the favorite restaurant of Sozzani at the Belmond Hotel Cipriani.
In 2017, Julianne Moore became the first star to receive the Franca Sozzani Award and Salma Hayek was honored in 2018.
Earlier this month, Sozzani & # 39; s son, Francesco Carrozzini, told Women & Wears Daily: & # 39; Iman's work has disrupted the fashion industry in the same way as Franca: bold, innovative, and inclusive.
& # 39; With its platform to the best of its ability, Iman shows her work from lobbying at the CFDA for an increase in diversity on the runway to impactful humanitarian work, her true passion and focus.
