For the 60th annual Grammy awards, celebrities are continuing to use their voices — and fashion — to promote the #TimesUp movement. On Sunday night, a number of attendees wore white roses, in one way or another, for an important reason.
Following the Golden Globes blackout that kicked off awards season with a statement of solidarity, artists have found another way to express their unity around the cause of gender equality with a white rose. A group called Voices of Entertainment sent a statement to attendees of the event to explain the push to wear the accessory, writing, “We choose the white rose because historically it stands for hope, peace, sympathy, and resistance.”
White carried the same powerful meaning throughout Hillary Clinton’s 2016 U.S. presidential campaign, as the candidate and her female voters often wore white as a nod to the suffrage movement. And now, on the red carpet, it’s adding an additional beautiful touch to all of the glamorous looks.
