At least four of the looks on the Grammy Awards red carpet Sunday night were political, per the Hollywood Reporter:

  • Arab Fashion Council ambassador Megan Pormer showed up wearing a dress featuring the US and Iran flags and reading, down the middle, "No War Iran."
  • Singer Joy Villa's gown read "Trump 2020" on the front and, on the back, "Impeached and Re-elected!" Villa, a well-known Trump supporter, also previously dressed up as the border wall, donned an anti-abortion dress, and wore a dress reading "Make America Great Again" on past red carpets.
  • Singer-songwriter Ricky Rebel, another Trump fan, showed up with "Impeach This" written on his butt cheeks.
All of those can be seen in our gallery; not pictured, Keb' Mo' and Robbie Brooks Moore carried a purse reading "Vote" as they walked the red carpet. (More Grammy Awards stories.)
