America Ferrera is saying goodbye to one of her favorite characters in style.

The actress uploaded a sneak peek of her 2020 Oscars red carpet gown on her Instagram earlier today, where she also shared the significant meaning behind her outfit.

"#Oscars for the final farewell to 12 years of How to Train Your Dragon & my Berkian Warrior Queen Astrid," she started.

"Tonight, I bring my own warrior ancestors with me, the indigenous Lenca tribe of Honduras."

The caption accompanied a photo of the stunning star wearing a custom Alberta Ferretti dress and custom Jennifer Behr headpiece that, according to the accessories designer, was "inspired by Honduras's most famous warrior, who is memorialized on the country's currency."

In the photo, the performer is also cradling her baby bump. Back in December, the Superstore lead shared to her Instagram that she and her husband Ryan Piers Williams are expanding their family with their second child.

Tonight, the actress could also see her film How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World go on to win an Academy Award.
