Afternoon D & C Dedicated To Mumbai


Monday, March 20, 2017

Last week, we told you what we were still raving about from the Grammys and then the Oscars walked in and stole the show! This year’s Academy Awards were filled with political statements, from the red carpet to the speeches, and Jagruti Verma & Khevna Pandit talk about a few accessories that took a stand

The Academy Awards are always the most awaited event of the year, and 2017 was a particularly memorable one. Barring a few glitches (we’re sorry for La La Land and thrilled for Moonlight all at once), the show stood out, and not only for the impassioned speeches and social awareness tingling through the event. For the 89th Academy Awards this year, celebrities added to the growing atmosphere of political and social dissent by taking a stand for things they believe in, and many of them did so with their clothing. Take a look at a few of the accessories that caught our eye.

The most common accessory at the red carpet this year was the blue ribbon. Celebrities such as Ruth Negga and Karlie Kloss were among several seen sporting the ribbon in support of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). The gesture comes at a time when the United States is becoming an precarious place for people who certain (rather unsavoury) sections of society deem ‘outsiders’, making it even more relevant to put the spotlight on.

Another social cause that is being associated with a political statement is that in support of Planned Parenthood, thanks to the new pro-life wave that could potentially take a basic fundamental choice away from women. While Emma Stone wore the pin on her dress, Dakota Johnson chose to pin it to her clutch.

The beautiful grey dress worn by Ava DuVernay at the Oscars this year was much more than just a pretty gown. It was her way of showing a small gesture of solidarity with Lebanon, a Muslim majority country. This subtle way to support their art was also a good way to take a stand against religious and cultural intolerance.

Since sustainable fashion has been under the spotlight for a while now, and it took centre stage on the red carpet at the Oscars this year. Emma Robert took it upon herself to ensure it remained in our fashion narrative in this pretty piece. Her gorgeous black and cream gown, made by designers for the Red Carpet Green Dress Campaign, is completely sustainable as it uses environment friendly fabrics.

Complete with beads and fringes, Olivia Culpo’s Oscar dress was breathtakingly as well as socially conscious. Made in collaboration with Marchesa and Stella Artois, the dress was made to awareness of the global water crisis.It’s a part of the Buy A Lady A Drink campaign, which supports the supply of clean water to developing countries.
