Last year singer Joy Villa wore a red, white and blue MAGA dress on the Grammys red carpet to show her support for President Donald Trump. She followed it up at this year’s ceremony with a fetus dress.
The 26-year-old singer wore a white Pronovias wedding gown with the image of a fetus, surrounded by rainbow stripes, painted on the skirt. She carried a white purse that read, “Choose life.”
Never miss a local story.
“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.”
Villa said she gave a baby up for adoption when she was 21 and supports adoption over abortion.
She has a reputation for wearing eye-catching dresses on the red carpet. Last year she looked like a walking, talking Trump billboard in a form-fitting gown designed by Andre Soriano, a Filipino immigrant.
“It’s about bringing people together,” Soriano told Billboard last year about the design. “It’s more so about love. We all live on this planet.
“I’ve never been in the political area. However, it’s just so crazy that people are getting beat up because they voted for Trump, or this and that, someone wants to bomb the White House ... I am an American, I moved here from the Philippines, and I highly believed in the trueness of what this country can bring. It’s about bringing people together, that’s the message.”
Soriano also designed another of Villa’s memorable red carpet dresses. In 2015 she showed up at the Grammys wearing plastic orange snow fencing. “My husband is a contractor, and we went to Home Depot and I saw that fabric,” Soriano said.
Villa told Fox News that even though there might be few politically conservative celebrities, that doesn’t stop her from sharing her views.
“There is a lot of hypocrisy we see from celebrities,” she said.
In December she accused Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski of slapping her rear at a Nov. 28 holiday party at Trump’s hotel in D.C.
She reported the incident to the police and said she was told by a detective that her complaint qualified as sexual assault, not sexual harassment. She went public with her claim in a tweet.
She told “Good Morning America” she hesitated reporting the incident because she didn’t want to cause Trump any bad press. She said she did not want to press charges against Lewandowski, who told Fox Business he would let due process take its course.
