There’s no doubt that the red carpet is the place to make a statement, what with about a bazillion eyes on you. Olivia Culpo clearly got that message and, tonight at the Oscars, she had one of her own she wanted to share. In partnership with Stella Artois and Water.org, Marchesa designed a gown for Miss Culpo that does SO much more than look pretty.
It may look like standard red carpet loveliness, but Culpo’s delicate, vintage-inspired gown is actually a one-of-a-kind Marchesa for Stella Artois, featuring beads made from limited-edition chalices that benefit Water.org. Yes, broken beer glasses make up this drop-dead gorgeous look. It’s all part of a partnership between the brands to bring clean water to people in the developing world.

Through the sale of one chalice (Stella Artois Buy a Lady a Drink Limited Edition Cambodia Chalice [$13]), someone in the world gets access to five years of clean water. Already, over 800,000 people around the world have benefited from this campaign. Know what we love more than fashion? Fashion that does good. Yes, honey, let’s all raise a glass to that.
