Emma Stone Makes a Powerful Political Statement on the Oscars Red Carpet

The 'La La Land' actress looks amazing and says something important.

If there's any night to dress like a screen siren, it's Oscar night...especially if you're nominated to win the award for La La Landa film that's one big tribute to old Hollywood (opens in new tab). And Emma Stone nails it:

Her dazzling Givenchy Haute Couture gold dress—with literal tinsel on the tiered skirt—is complemented with a classic red lip, red waves, Tiffany & Co. dangle earrings...

...and a gold Planned Parenthood pin right below her left strap, a subtle, important political statement.
