Ruth Negga sauntered down the 2017 Academy Awards red carpet in a candy-apple-colored Valentino gown. But it was the small blue ribbon adorning her chest that caught our eyes.

The organization asked celebs to sport the ribbons to Hollywood's biggest night as part of their new Stand with the ACLU campaign, according to People.

Negga wasn't the only celeb proudly displaying her loyalty to the group. Lin Manuel Miranda and Karlie Kloss were among those sporting the night's coolest accessory at the main event. And Best Actress winner Emma Stone did an outfit change for the after parties, which included the political ribbon (she wore a gold Planned Parenthood pin on her gown earlier).
