Ruth Negga Makes Political Statement at 2017 Oscars in One-of-a-Kind Valentino Gown

Ruth Negga showed her support for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) on the 2017 Academy Awards red carpet at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday by wearing an ACLU ribbon on her red dress.

The 35-year-old ‘Loving’ actress, who is a contender for Best Actress, donned a long-sleeved gown from Valentino Couture. She styled the crimson red number with a showstopping headband made of precious red stones and other jewelry from Irene Neuwirth.

One day earlier, Ruth showed off her style at the 2017 Film Independent Spirit Awards held at the Santa Monica Pier. The Ethiopian-Irish actress donned a charming bow off-the-shoulder dress with a floral skirt from the Delpozo Fall 2017 collection. She accessorized with a Roger Vivier ‘Pilgrim Jewel Papillon de Nuit’ clutch, Gemfields jewelry, and a pair of black pointy-toe pumps. Which of the two outfits do you like better?
