Meryl Streep’s Best Actress win last night at the 84th Academy Awards was not only her third win in 17 (!) nominations, but also a gigantic boon for Livia Firth’s Green Carpet Challenge.

The 62-year-old was announced as a surprise participant just as the red carpet was kicking off  - with Streep donning a custom made eco gown from Lanvin. According to Firth, the gold gown was created using “Eco Certified Fabric sourced with help from the GCC.”

So when Streep won – ethical, sustainable fashion scored the spotlight too. An awesome win for both!

Check out her wonderful acceptance speech below.
