Suzy Amis, wife of director James Cameron, was on-hand Wednesday night at the Global Green Pre-Oscar Party for the official unveiling of her Academy Awards green dress.

The gown has been receiving a lot of attention ever since Amis announced a contest “Red Carpet Green Dress” which challenged fashionistas to come up with a stylish, green design to benefit charity — and walk the red carpet on Oscar night. The winner was announced last month as Jillian Granz, a Michigan State University senior majoring in apparel and textile design.

Originally thought to be red, the resulting gown in a stunning blue —  an appropriate color given Cameron’s blue-skinned aliens in Avatar. It’s a zero-waste dress — made from Ahimsa or “peace” silk, derived from cocoons without killing the silk worms inside.

“Choosing from sketches and designs worldwide, it was a tough decision,” Amis Cameron said in a press release. “Jillian’s design was stunning and had that something special. It’s a beautiful combination of sustainability and style. I’m excited to promote the talent of this young designer.”

What do you think of the final design? Check out more photos of the dress below:
