Busy Philipps is a vocal advocate for women’s rights, often posting politically-charged messages on her social channels. She also, apparently, isn’t afraid to make a statement for her platform through her wardrobe.
The 37-year-old actress was recently spotted alongside close friend Michelle Williams at LAX wearing a $98 red sweatshirt featuring the female reproductive system by New York City-based designer Rachel Antonoff.
The sweatshirt is a favorite in her closet, as she also wore the piece to the Women’s March in Los Angeles, Calif., earlier this month.
The garment, featuring a uterus on the front, is part of the Antonoff’s wide variety of Female Reproductive styles, which benefit Planned Parenthood. In an Instagram post from November 2016, Antonoff described why donating to the organization was important to her.
“Talking about anything other than the state of America right now feels ludicrous. I love what I do but have not felt much like talking about clothes, sales or fashion in general over the past few weeks,” she captioned the image, featuring the popular design. “I am trying, as I think we all are, to appropriately navigate the integration of work and life when we are living in an entirely abnormal, unacceptable situation. While it’s only a start, we will be donating a portion of sales of all Female Reproductive styles to Planned Parenthood going forward. We will not normalize this and we do not accept the values of the coming administration.”
Although the sweaters and T-shirts recently surged in popularity thanks to the current political climate, Antonoff first debuted the items in her fall/winter 2015 collection.
“I’ve always loved the way the female reproductive system looks and it worked so well with this season’s concept, felt like a no brainer,” she told the Observer at the time. She also revealed her target consumer. “The woman I am designing for truly dresses for herself and does not want to be told what to wear,” she said.
Antonoff’s $218 wool blend version was worn by actress Lena Dunham to a Planned Parenthood event in Los Angeles in October of 2015.
At the event, Dunham made headlines for auctioning the sweater straight off her back for $4,000 to benefit the organization.
