Joy Villa‘s latest controversial fashion statement? A tribute to Donald Trump‘s proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall.
The singer showed up to the 61st annual Grammy Awards on Sunday wearing a border wall-inspired dress, along with a red “Make America Great Again” purse.
The 27-year-old singer’s outfit featured a low white V-neck gown, imitating a white wall. Tangles of barbed wire sprouted from her shoulders, and she wore spikes in her hair.

Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Villa said her gown was designed Desi Lee Allinger-Nelson of Desi Designs Couture.
The gown even had a “Build The Wall” statement in the back.
Singer Ricky Rebel apparently also got the MAGA memo, and showed up on Sunday wearing a patriotic jacket supporting Trump’s 2020 campaign.

Last year, Villa wore a white gown to the Grammy Awards, making a statement on her abortion views. The anti-abortion dress was paired with a “Choose Life” purse.
In 2017, she wore a custom blue “Make America Great Again” gown to the Grammy Awards, with a glittery “Trump” along the edge.

Villa has said in previous interviews that she grew up in theatre and costumes were always a way to express herself.
“It’s an opportunity to show the world who I am on the red carpet, which to me is the same as a stage. I approach it as a show. I want to ‘wow’ people,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.
My heroes on the red carpet have always been Cher, Madonna, the wild ones; the worst-dressed or Lady Gaga with the meat dress. Who even talks about the best-dressed? No one even remembers who was best-dressed last year.”
