Ruth Negga, who's nominated tonight for Best Actress in Loving, arrived to the Oscars red carpet making a powerful statement with her look.

Wearing a custom red Valentino gown, the actress made her already stunning look standout more by pinning a light blue ribbon to her dress. The light blue ribbon shows support for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), a non-profit organization committed to protecting rights for all Americans regardless of race, gender, religion or sexual orientation. Most recently, the ACLU has been outspoken in protecting those whose rights have been threatened under the Trump administration.

The ribbon, which reads "ACLU" in white font, made for the perfect stand-out contrast to Negga's all-red look.

Also wearing an ACLU ribbon tonight is Hamilton's Lin Manuel Miranda, meaning this might just be the red carpet accessory trend to watch for tonight.
