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.

“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.
