Emma Roberts' Americana look is our everything
Emma Roberts has always been a fashion icon (and always gives us major #hairgoals). Between her onscreen roles as Madison Montgomery in American Horror Story and Chanel Oberlin in Scream Queens, and her IRL fashion sense, Emma looks flawless 24/7. Now, she’s putting her great sense of style to important use — showing her support for a presidential candidate.
Emma recently took to Instagram to share a snap of herself rocking a great tee. In the photo, she’s casually hanging out on a balcony, wearing super chic sunglasses and a simple striped grey and white T-shirt. The initials “HRC” (for Hillary Rodham Clinton) are emblazoned on the front of the tee. In case the subtle endorsement was too ambiguous, Emma clarified with a caption reading, “Love my @HillaryClinton @TanyaTaylor campaign tee #MadeForHistory #ImWithHer.“
As Emma’s caption says, the cute tee was designed by Tanya Taylor, a NYC designer. Tanya is just the latest designer to throw her brand behind presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton ahead of next week’s Democratic National Convention by designing a tee for Hillary’s Made For History campaign. The campaign is “a limited-edition [clothing] collection from fashion’s biggest names, designed to help elect the first woman president of the United States, and Democrats from coast to coast.”
Tanya shared a photo of Demi Lovato rocking the same great shirt on her own personal Instagram.
Demi looks just as amazing as Emma in the tee, rocking the shirt and showing her support for her candidate.
The shirt, a unisex tee which is available in sizes XS to XXXL at Hillary’s official campaign site shop, is listed alongside a personal statement from the designer herself, explaining why Tanya is #WithHer and why she chose a gender-neutral, classic Americana design and cut for her T-shirt.
“I was raised with the belief that I could be anything I wanted to be. Hillary Clinton’s glass ceiling shattering campaign is testament to the progress America has made for women’s global equality. My design for Hillary’s historic campaign is a classic varsity tee, inspired by team unity and iconic Americana. Her dedication to nurturing entrepreneurial spirit, improving access to higher education and protecting the American people are some of the reasons I’m With Her.”
Tanya is absolutely right — the shirt is a great, classic design that represents old-school Americana to a T (pun intended)!
As reported by Vogue, Tanya joins designers including Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg, Tory Burch, Joseph Altuzarra, and Georgina Chapman in contributing clothing designs to Hillary’s campaign. All of these designers have volunteered their time to designing apparel for Hillary’s Made For History campaign.
The campaign has definitely gained a ton of traction since its inception. The beautiful and fashionable designs have been popping up on Instas ever since the campaign started. High-profile celebs, including Michelle Rodriguez, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Debra Messing, have been rocking other designs in the collection.
It’s always amazing to see celebs using their platform and widespread social media followings to declare their support for their candidate and contribute to making a difference in the political landscape!
