Right now, Helen Hunt is taking a risk and strutting the 2013 Oscars red carpet in none other than H&M!

It’s a simple navy blue strapless eco-friendly gown designed by the popular fashion company that is not only affordable, but making strides in the green community. The dress is also accentuated with $700,000 worth in jewels.

As she told E! host Ryan Seacreast, “. . . they made a beautiful dress and they are going green.”

Most recently, H&M partnered alongside Global Green USA for its brand new garment recycling program, which helps reduce textile waste and of course benefits our planet.

It’s great to see Hunt, who is also nominated for her role in “The Sessions,” support H&M. She’s also been a longtime supporter of Global Green.

There’s nothing like taking a risk on one of the biggest red carpets of the year, and doing it in an eco-friendly way.

We agree with Hunt, “It’s a win, win, win!”

We’ll have a better picture of the dress later, but for now, here is a close up from the Academy Awards instagram.

    Are the jewels conflict-free? Probably not.
