Not only did Meryl Streep take home the Oscar for her performance in “The Iron Lady.” The actress who all actresses long to become blew away the fashion competition in her full-length gold Lanvin gown last night. The best part? This shimmery dress with the plunging neckline is totally eco-friendly.

Livia Firth recruited Streep to be a part of the Green Carpet Challenge. The three time Oscar winner joined others like Livia and Colin Firth, Viola Davis, Michael FassbenderKenneth Branagh and Damian Bichir by wearing eco-friendly threads.

Firth blogged about Streep’s dress on Vogue last night and wrote, “Yes, tonight Meryl Streep joins the Green Carpet Challenge wearing Lanvin’s first ever custom made eco gown. The gown is gold, full-length and made from Eco Certified Fabric sourced with help from the GCC. I could not be more delighted! Can you tell?”

Streep also made our top 10 most charitable Oscar nominees. Between her work on behalf of women, children and the environment, and her massive talent on screen, we can say that Streep is a winner each and every day of the year. Although last night had to be especially sweet for the star.

Check out her dress below as she poses with fellow winner Jean Dujardin.

    This article would be a lot more meaningful if it actually said what was “eco” about this dress! There is not much educational value in just stating that it is…why is it?
