American singer and songwriter Joy Villa made a huge statement at the 59th annual Grammy Awards. Villa showed up covered in a long white cloak, later removing it to reveal a patriotic red, white, and blue gown on the red carpet. Trump’s popular campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again” was bedazzled down the front of the dress, followed by “TRUMP” sparkling across the train of the dress. The custom dress was made by fashion designer, Andre Soriano.

For obvious reasons, Villa’s choice of wardrobe received mixed feelings, but you could say the risk paid off. Fox News pointed out, “The 25-year-old’s EP “I Make the Static” jumped to the top of Amazon’s top digital paid albums and reached number seven on the iTunes top album chart after her red carpet appearance.”

Go big, or go home. You can either stand for what you believe or fall for what you don’t. Above all make a choice for tolerance and love. Agree to disagree. See the person over the politics, carry yourself with dignity, always. Life is made to be lived, so go boldly and give no effs! 😊❤️😘😱💋🏆⭐️💥✨ #love #peace #joyvillagrammys #joyvilla #maga #grammys2017 #style #supportamerica #
