DRESS TO PROTEST: Stars Wear Blue Ribbons to Oscars to Protest Trump’s Travel Ban

Well, as you guessed it, the Oscars got political. From the speeches to the fashion, everyone wanted in on the Trump bashing. In this case, stars opted for a fashion statement to protest the president.

Celebrities have taken to the Oscars red carpet wearing blue ribbons as they protest Donald Trump‘s immigration ban.

Supermodel Karlie Kloss, who is dating the brother of Trump advisor Jared Kushner, was among the several stars to wear the ribbon in support of the American Civil Liberties Union.

Best actress nominee Ruth Negga wore her blue ACLU ribbon pinned to her red Valentino dress as she walked the red carpet outside the Dolby Theatre on Sunday.

Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda and his mother both wore the ribbons, as well as Moonlight director Barry Jenkins.


The blue accessories are in support of the organization’s ‘Stand With ACLU’ campaign, which launched earlier this week.

ACLU called on Oscar nominees and celebrities to stand behind the organization amid Trump’s controversial immigration ban.

Oscar nominee Casey Affleck also wore the ribbon at the Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday night.

Stylist Karla Welch took to Instagram on Sunday to share a photo of Negga’s blue ribbon. She captioned the post: ‘The accessory I’m most proud of #ACLU #MegaNegga.’

And for the few celebrities who might have protested wearing the ribbon, we imagine the conversation went a little like this:
