Celebrities are using Election Day fashion as a form of advocacy. From ballgowns to platform shoes, stars are putting together the most elaborate and statement-making outfits to get the point across that this is an election not to be missed.
In a couture Viktor & Rolf tulle gown, Christina Aguilera sent a clear sartorial message: “F*** this I’m going voting.” The “Dirty” singer shared the look on Instagram with a powerful caption. “I think about my children and the world I want to see them grow up in. A world filled with love, tolerance, acceptance, and respect,” she wrote. “This year has shattered my heart in so many ways. I’ve been horrified by the behavior we’ve been seeing — behavior that I wouldn’t even expect from my 6-year-old. But I am still hopeful that we can unite and push for positive and peaceful change FOR HUMANITY. Let's create a better & more united future for us all! You can’t rely on someone else to do it. You have the power. You can make the change.”

Fan-favorite Lizzo opted for a more risqué outfit, wearing half of a jumpsuit inspired by the American flag. In an Instagram post encouraging everyone to vote, the singer wrote, “I believe in so much, and if I believe it one day I can see it. It may not be tomorrow it may not be today, but it will be one day if we stay activated. We the people, ALL the people, deserve it. Today’s the last day to vote. Stay in line, stay determined and thank YOU for voting.”
When I think of this country I don’t think of its laws I think of its people. I think about how we were raised to be patriotic of violence, propaganda & war. I think about how this country is owned by the oppressor and how the oppressed are locked in a valley of capitalism. But I also think of the young people who refuse to be spoon fed mistruths. I think of the elders who bucked against hateful prejudices even when it felt impossible.... Because of you, I’m still hopeful. I believe in a country that teaches the true history so we can better understand where we live and how we can do better. I believe in a country that listens to the cries of the protester and doesn’t politicize death. I believe in restoration of this beautiful land and respecting the communities of people who owned America before colonizers renamed it. I believe in fairness, equality, a complete removal of religion in places where it does not belong. Let religion live in the churches and places of worship... the quiet prayer rooms, the joyful congregations.. and out of Congress. I believe in so much, and if I believe it one day I can see it. It may not be tomorrow it may not be today, but it will be one day if we stay activated. We the people, ALL the people, deserve it. Today’s the last day to vote. Stay in line, stay determined and thank YOU for voting.
