When most stars were asked which designer they were wearing on the red carpet at last night’s Oscars the answers were as expected: Armani, Prada, Dior, Valentino. But Helen Hunt’s response caught us more than a little off guard. That’s because she wore H&M.
The dress was part of H&M’s eco-friendly “Conscious Collection“–only you won’t be able to buy it off the rack for your next black tie event. An H&M spokesperson tells us the silk satin gown was made specially for Hunt.
“[H&M] is making sustainable clothes, which I love, so it’s a win-win-win,” Hunt said on the red carpet. Of course, she did add some $700,000 worth of Martin Katz jewels, nailing that high/low thing.
One complaint we (and Twitter) had with the gown? It could’ve used a quick steam before Hunt hit the carpet. But hey–celebrities are just like us, right?
