Emma Stone Made a Political Statement With Her Accessories Before the Oscars Even Began

Feb 26, 2017

Before the Oscars ceremony kicked off, Emma Stone had already cemented her place on the evening's best dressed lists in an Oscar-gold old Hollywood gown. But her most noteworthy accessory was in service of a cause: a small golden pin in the shape of Planned Parenthood's logo. Stone was not the only star who made a subtle political statement on the red carpet. Dakota Johnson sported Planned Parenthood's logo on her clutch, and several stars —including nominees Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ruth Negga—wore blue ribbons in support of the American Civil Liberties Union.

Though red-carpet interviews mostly steered clear of politics, celebrities made the most of the attention to kick off what promises to be a night full of political statements.
