Viola Davis and Gwendoline Christie Choose Vivienne Westwood for SAG Awards

The designer is a politically outspoken punk icon.

Against the backdrop of protests of President Trump’s executive order on immigration, stars took to the red carpet for the annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday.

Although many celebs went on social media over the weekend to air opinions about the ban of immigrants from seven predominately Muslim countries, talk — and fashion — on the red carpet was mostly light.

One person who did make a sartorial statement was Gwendoline Christie, of Game of Thrones, who chose a black sequin jumpsuit by punk icon Vivienne Westwood. “Vivienne is someone who has an activist mindset which is something I appreciate at this moment,” she told E!

Viola Davis also went with Westwood, a classically-draped, strapless white gown.

“We are sticking with colors that symbolize optimism and hope! And silhouettes that are clean strong and simple,” Davis’ stylist Elizabeth Stewart told THR.

On the carpet, Davis kept things fun, joking about keeping her toes from hurting with a numbing salve she found online and pulling out her foldable slippers from her clutch.
