Award shows of late have been little more than a bully-pulpit for A-list celebrities to make sweeping declarations about just how miffed they are that Donald Trump won the presidential election. Yet there was one attendee at the Grammys last night that was clearly on the Trump Train.

While most of the women in attendance were wearing some very elaborate get-ups, Joy Villa was not. Her custom made dress was sewn from a humble Trump campaign flag.
Did it turn heads? It did. Did it infuriate some snowflake celebrities who were hoping that everyone at the music awards show might join hands and sing all of the verses of Kumbaya? Probably.
Villa enjoyed a real-time bump in album sales, too–which just goes to show that not everyone respects Hollywood’s anti-Trump tirades.
Villa made a grand entrance, too. She showed up wrapped in white, and then–when she knew the cameras were rolling–she flung off the frock to reveal the flag dress. Make Grammys fashion great again.
Fox news is reporting that “the 25-year-old’s EP ‘I Make the Static’ jumped to the top of Amazon’s top digital paid albums and reached number seven on the iTunes top album chart after her red carpet appearance.”
This was there, too.
You can check out some of Villa’s music on YouTube, if you’re not already humming a song.
“Go big, or go home,” Villa later posted on Instagram. “You can either stand for what you believe or fall for what you don’t. Above all make a choice for tolerance and love. Agree to disagree.”
Before you jump to the conclusion that the dress was a homespun project akin to your girlfriend’s duct tape prom dress, think again. This was haute couture. Andre Soriano designed the dress. Soriano noted that the dress is a “tribute [to] OUR President Of The United States Of America.”
While the dress’s overt message may have been conservative, there was nothing subtle about its cut. If viewed from the backside, the dress appeared to spell out RUMP in giant rhinestone letters.
