Ginnifer Goodwin looked like a million bucks at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington, D.C., Saturday night — but her dress was only $299.

The Once Upon a Time star — a guest of NPR — wore a voluminous light gray creation from the new H&M Exclusive Glamour Conscious Collection, a line of eco-friendly dresses and separates already seen on the red carpet on stars like Michelle Williams, Viola Davis, Kristin Davis and Amanda Seyfried.

“I wanted something that was very earth-friendly,” the actress told PEOPLE on her way into the event. “That was critical.”

Goodwin’s gown is a limited edition piece; only 1,000 were made, and each is individually numbered. The dress features white organic cotton and silk bouclĂ© at the top, with an organza plissĂ© meringue skirt. There’s a concealed zipper in back, and Goodwin customized the gown by adding a black belt and a statement clutch from Stark, too.

Her dress fit in beautifully with all of the Monique Lhuilliers and Marchesas — but has a price we can actually afford! Tell us: Would you have guessed Goodwin’s gown was more expensive?

I love the dress and would have never guessed it was from H&M. Wish they would bring H&M to Hawaii already!

OMG, will someone please tell her that her ears are enormous and she needs to grow her hair out to cover them!!!

WOW… she looks great and it looked just as good as many of the other designer gowns that cost thousands more!

I just looked at the H&M site, and that gown sells for $549, not $299.

$299 is an amazing price for that; and I just went on there, and that’s the price showing for it. However, how earth friendly is it when you have to dry clean it?

I really cannot like the dress..$300.00 take it back and spend it on fashion sense.

@Mimi

Her ears are beautiful just the way they are. I bet you do not have a feature that is perfect, no one does. Her ears make her special.
