The biggest fashion statement on the Emmy Awards 2017 red carpet, was a blue ribbon. The likes of Riz Ahmed, Padma Lakshmi, Kumail Nanjiani, Judith Light and more had the blue ribbon pinned to their outfits. It turns out the ribbon has a very important message behind it.
By wearing the accessory the stars showed their support for the American Civil Liberties Union and their “Stand With the ACLU” initiative. The ACLU is an organisation that has worked tirelessly for a 100 years to to defend and protect individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and law of the U.S.
Hollywood has taken nearly every opportunity this year to show their support for the organization, which has seen its membership double since President Donald Trump took office. From the Oscars to the Tonys to New York Fashion Week, where more than 50 designers worked with the ACLU to draw attention to the cause.
