Singer Joy Villa turned heads at the 62nd Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday with yet another bold pro-Trump inspired gown.
The singer arrived on the red carpet in a white overcoat with blue and white cap star printed sleeves detailing. When she opened the overcoat, the gown revealed a plunging red halter latex gown embellished with white crystal lettering that spelled out “TRUMP” down the center and “2020” along the bottom. When Villa turned around, the backside of the dress read “IMPEACHED” down the center and “RE-ELECTED” along the bottom.
Under the long hem of her statement gown, she chose to match the political look with a “Betsy Ross” American flag-patterned patent pump with a red heel. She completed the look carrying a black clutch bedazzled with the GOP elephant. The clutch was created by a fan.
“This dress is pro-America,” Villa said. “This is a patriotic, Miss America type of feel.”
When asked if she shared her fashion plans with Trump in advance of the show, Villa said, “He’ll be surprised. I just told Ivanka and the White House that I’m going to wear something to be supportive. I don’t let anyone know the message beforehand.”
The dress is a partnership with ViralPAC, an organization funding conservative artists to support the re-election of President Trump and conservative candidates in 2020.
Designed by Desi Allinger of Desi Designs, Villa is known for making political statements on the red carpet. The 2020 Grammy Awards marked the third event where she showed support for Trump through her gown. The designer also created her 2019 Grammys border wall-inspired outfit and a red Make America Great Again purse.
“The collar of Joy’s latex dress was inspired by a neckline on a dress by Alexander McQueen, and the coat is inspired by our first lady [Melania Trump] — I just picture her in this. So yeah, USA!, Allinger told The Hollywood Reporter.
In 2017, Villa wore a gown that featured Trump’s presidential campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again” on the front and “Trump” on the train. This gown was designed by Andre Soriano.
