Awards show attendees in recent weeks have used fashion to do more than just look pretty. Rather, by wearing black at the Golden Globes, sporting Time’s Up pins, or accessorizing with a white rose, many have protested sexual harassment within the entertainment industry and beyond. Singer Joy Villa also used the red carpet to send a political message at the Grammy Awards on Sunday — by wearing a gown with a rainbow fetus design on it while carrying a “Choose Life” purse.
The satin gown was purchased from nonprofit The Bridal Garden and was designed by Provonias. Villa painted the rainbow motif herself, a version of which she shared on Twitter and Instagram.
In addition to her custom purse, she accessorized with a tiara and other diamond jewels.
The 26-year-old said she decided to feature a rainbow fetus on her Grammys dress because she gave up a baby for adoption when she was 21. She’s been outspoken on social media about her views on the subject, even calling abortion murder on Twitter in November.
“I’m a pro-life woman. This year I chose to make a statement on the red carpet like I always do,” she told Fox News. “I’m all about life.”
