Pyle's gorgeous blue dress was the winning design from a competition called Red Carpet Green Dress, which was created three years ago by Suzy Cameron (James Cameron's wife) in an effort to promote sustainable fashion. Global Campaign Director Samata Angel worked with Missi Pyle from start to finish to achieve her dazzling, and completely green, Oscar night dress.

The gown was designed by Venezuelan born designer Valentina Delfino, who beat out hundreds of other designers to win the competition. Pyle's dress was made with organic silk, hand-dyed by A Dye-ing Art with natural mineral pigments, and lined with recycled polyester. Missi Pyle paired her eco-friendly gown with Chopard jewels and a chic undo. The Artist is up for 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor (Jean Dujardin), Best Director, and Best Supporting Actress (Berenice Bejo).

The 84th Annual Academy Awards aren't all about fashion and footwear, though. This year, stars like George Clooney, Viola Davis, Brad Pitt, Michelle Wiliams, and Meryl Streep are all nominated and are eagerly waiting to hear those five magic words: "And the winner goes to…" Our big money's on the folks behind The Artist. You can catch all of Oscar action on ABC at 7E/4P.
