Last week, Lena Waithe, an American actress, producer, and screenwriter wore a controversial statement piece
However, Carolina Herrera creative director Wes Gordon said it best about Lena Waithe custom Carolina Herrera silk faille cape with a wool tuxedo, created in collaboration between Lena and the atelier.
This look is a statement, but it still reflects the codes of the House, and most importantly, it’s a reflection of Lena’s personal style.
Waithe had probably one of the more controversial head-turning looks on the carpet in a custom Carolina Herrera silk faille cape with a wool tuxedo.
At this year’s exhibition “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” Waithe was one of the only celebrities with an outfit that made a political statement.
Lena Waithe wanted to show support for the LGBT community as the Catholic church continues to have a fraught relationship with homosexuality.
She told Vogue:
Tonight, this cape is not imaginary, it’s rainbow-colored. And we got the black and brown [stripes], you know. I’m reppin‘ my community, and I want everybody to know that you can be whoever you are and be completely proud, so . . . Wear the damn cape.
This speaks LOUD to all in the LGBT community with pride!
She is speaking for the LGBT community showing her GAY PRIDE, since the Trump administration has undone so many things the Obama administration implemented. Trump has made moves to dismantle several LGBT-friendly policies in the name of religious freedom.
It’s people like Lena Waithe who continues to fight for gay rights and equality when people lke Trump continues to create Hate against the gay community. He is the devil! Trump hates on anything that is not 100% white America – “hot apple pie and hot dogs.”
