It didn't take long for Sunday's Grammy Awards to get political. Before the show even started, artist Joy Villa arrived on the red carpet in a form-fitting dress that made Kellyanne Conway's Inauguration Day outfit look subtle.
The blue gown, with an open back, had President Trump's campaign slogan and stars on the front of the gown.
On the back, in large, block lettering, the dress spelled out POTUS' last name.
The designer of the frock, Andre Soriano, an immigrant from the Philippines, told The Hollywood Reporter that the purpose of the dress was to convey a message of unity.
"It’s more so about love," shared Soriano, described in the piece as "supportive of the new president."
"We all live on this planet," he said. "I’ve never been in the political area. However, it’s just so crazy that people are getting beat up because they voted for Trump, or this and that, someone wants to bomb the White House....I am an American, I moved here from the Philippines and I highly believed in the trueness of what this country can bring. It’s about bringing people together, that’s the message."
Twitter was not feeling the look.
Highly Suspect used fashion to make an anti-Trump statement. A member of the band's jacket read "Impeach."
Trump-inspired fashion also came down the runway at Public School's fashion show Sunday, though it was more protest than sign of support. Models donned merchandise that read "Make America New York" while walking to Woody Guthrie's This Land Is Your Land.
ScHoolboy Q also made a fashion statement with his Grammys' attire. The artist wore a pink sweatshirt that read "GIRL POWER," while his daughter wore a bubble-gum Gucci suit.
