Amber Rose At The 2015 VMAs Wears A Bodysuit That Takes A Stance Against Slut Shaming

If you're looking for memorable red carpet ensemble, look no further than Amber Rose at the 2015 VMAs. It's not a surprise, really, considering Rose's red carpet looks are always so on point. Last year, for instance, Rose arrived in a barely-there Laurel Dewitt chain dress, and I wasn't sure how she could possibly top it. When Rose stepped out on the red carpet of the VMAs with her squad this year, however, it was clear that she wanted to make a statement that fell in line with her stance against slut shaming and other hurtful societal ideologies.

As I read the word "Stripper" across Rose's waistline, I couldn't help but remember her Kardashian feud earlier this year, when Khloe tweeted about Rose being a stripper at 15 as a means of attacking and diminishing her opinion. While Rose defended herself, she never attacked back. The other words on Rose's bodysuit — hoe, slut, gold digger, and b*tch — seem to tackle the same message: The dangers of unfair labels based on someone's past or aesthetic appearance.

When I first saw the word "Gold Digger" written across Rose's chest, I knew it was the work of indie designer Iris Barbee Bonner of These Pink Lips, who is known for hand-painted "Goal Digger" hats and tees along with "F*ck Me" denim shorts and Barbie Bootz.

The in-your-face sex positive feminist message behind the work of These Pink Lips was a natural fit for Rose, considering she organizes Amber Rose's Slut Walk and challenges slut shaming with flawless body positive selfies on the 'gram regularly. How exceptionally powerful.
