Singer Joy Villa used fashion to make a statement on the Grammy Awards red carpet tonight in N.Y.C.

The star, 26, arrived to the show making a stand against abortion by wearing a white Pronovias wedding gown which featured a large rainbow painting of a fetus on the skirt, a hand painted purse that read “Choose Life” and a dramatic crystal-covered tiara.

“I’m a pro-life woman. This year I chose to make a statement on the red carpet like I always do,” she told Fox News. “I’m all about life.” According to the star, her look was inspired by her own experience giving up a baby for adoption when she was 21 because of her belief that women should choose adoption over abortion.
