It happened at the Golden Globes, New York Fashion Week and, now, the Oscars: America’s largest abortion provider is becoming a “fashion statement.” And, in addition to entertainment news and women’s magazines, the broadcast networks are beginning to notice the trend.
Following Sunday evening’s 89th Academy Awards ceremony, NBC anchor Natalie Morales reported on the red carpet “glitz and the glamour” that “was also mixed with politics.”
“Along with fashion statements,” Morales stressed Monday during Today, “there were plenty of political statements.” For proof, she pointed to La La Land actress Emma Stone’s support of Planned Parenthood.
“Emma Stone wore a gold Planned Parenthood pin on her golden gown,” she said, before noting additional Hollywood names bolstering other organizations like GLAAD and the ACLU with fashion choices.
Later on in the show, Zanna Roberts Rassi, the senior fashion editor at Marie Claire, pointed out the “real statement” by “all these girls” wearing a “little Planned Parenthood gold badge.”
Morales again brought up Emma Stone. But, as Rassi suggested, Stone wasn’t the only one. 50 Shades Darker actress Dakota Johnson also sported a Planned Parenthood pin on her clutch purse Sunday night. And, for their efforts, the actresses garnered applause from the media.
