Maria Grazia Chiuri made history when she became the first female creative director for Christian Dior. To mark her debut Spring 2017 ready-to-wear collection for the 70-year-old storied brand, she revealed a T-shirt that reads We Should All Be Feminists amid her line of fencing-inspired silhouettes and romantic tulle dresses. Inspired by author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s book and TEDx Talk of the same name, the buzzy T-shirt couldn’t have come at a better time, as men and women around the world came together in support of the Women’s March.
Taking a stand on gender equality and women’s rights, Rihanna and Natalie Portman were among the celebrities that made a statement in the covetable T-shirt during the marches in Los Angeles and New York City, respectively. Meanwhile, A$AP Rocky spelled out his support by donning the Tee while out on the town in the French capital. On the street style circuit, the fashion pack made a case during Paris Fashion Week Couture Spring 2017 by stepping out in the popular piece. Lebanese fashion influencer Lana El Sahely wore it with a white sheer Christian Dior skirt, layered over leather leggings, while French runway model Camille Hurel switched into the top after walking in the Parisian brand’s Spring 2017 Couture show, by pairing it with a shearling jacket, leather pants, and combat boots. In the gallery above, Vogue Arabia tracks how fashion’s power players and street style stars who wore the statement T-shirt best.
