Pussy Bow Rebellion! Emma Stone and Miley Cyrus Tie One on for Hillary Clinton
Miley Cyrus and Emma Stone have their own unique takes on the trend
Who would have thought that the humble pussybow blouse — a staple of 1800s Victorian dressing, 1960s secretarial attire and 1980s power-lady dressing — would end up playing such a pivotal role in the 2016 election? Ever since Donald Trump’s tape (you know the one) was released, the top has taken center stage, starting with his wife Melania wearing a pussybow blouse to the second and third debates and continuing on from there. Princess Kate wore a dress featuring the distinctive neck tie, and now Hillary Clinton-supporting celebs have taken the concept and make it their own.
Emma Stone appeared at the Middleburg Film Festival in Virginia, a battleground state, carrying a clutch festooned with a Hillary Clinton campaign pin and a top accented with an enormous apricot bow. And yes, that bow is a fashion statement in support of the presidential candidate: “Emma and her Don’t Grab My Pussy Bow take Middleburg Film Fest #werewithher” Stone’s longtime hairstylist Mara Roszak wrote on Instagram.
Miley Cyrus put her own spin on the look, and she made sure you couldn’t miss it: She donned a giant blue bow as a crop top of sorts, then teamed it with a striped sarong skirt, white tights, silver shoes and a pink furry hat. While her top isn’t exactly the most traditional version of the “pussybow bow blouse,” no one every accused Cyrus of subtlety — and clearly she wanted to make her message loud and clear.
