Supporting the cause

Celebrities have long used the red carpet to express their support for causes that matter to them. Emma Stone wore a Planned Parenthood pin on her dress at the Oscar, while Amber Rose once donned a bodysuit emblazoned with terms such as “hoe” and “golddigger" to kick against slut shaming.

In fact, this protest dressing goes back decades ago. In 1972, Jane Fonda wore a black Yves Saint Laurent suit in support of the anti-Vietnam War statement.
