Olivia Culpo's Oscars Dress Is Not Only Stunning, It's Supporting An Important Cause

She gets our best dressed award.

What could be more beautiful than an Oscars gown supporting an important cause?

Last night, stars walked the 2017 Oscars red carpet donning some incredible pieces from well-known designers: Salma Hayek in Alexander McQueen, Viola Davis in Armani, Emma Stone in Givenchy Haute Couture, and beyond. 

But one dress really had us swooning: Olivia Culpo's Marchesa number. According to Culpo, Marchesa, Stella Artois, and Water.org teamed up to create the dress to help provide clean drinking water for people in need. 

"Stella Artois created chalices and for one chalice sold, five years of clean drinking water is provided for someone in the developing world," She told Ryan Seacrest. "So this dress is actually made out of the chalice pieces, and it's encouraging people to get involved in the water crisis and buy the chalice."

The dress, meant to represent water, features a tiered structure with crystals and a black bow cinched at the waist. Culpo finished her look with purple eyeshadow, a sleek updo, and a nude lip.

"It's fun when you can incorporate good things and charity into fashion!"

We hope others in the industry continue in the effort to support charity through fashion. Check out Culpo's interview below:
