Where Can You Buy Hailey Baldwin's Stoneman Douglas T-Shirt? The Top Was A Highlight At The iHeartRadio Awards
Fashion has the power to fight back. It can raise awareness, funds, and open conversation for everything from presidential elections to women's rights. As Teen Vogue originally reported, Hailey Baldwin wore a Stoneman Douglas High shirt to the iHeartRadio Awards to raise awareness for gun violence. Although the exact style has yet to be found, there are ways to get a tee that gives back to a great cause.
Red carpet awards often get a ton of fashion attention, but Baldwin's Stoneman Douglas High shirt is a trend that just about anyone can get behind. The black shirt with white lettering might have been simple, but it made a big statement. Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida was the site of a mass shooting on Feb. 14 that left 17 people dead and countless more injured. With the March For Our Lives coming up on Mar. 24, celebrities like Baldwin have been speaking out about gun violence — verbally and sartorially.
The shirt not only shows that Baldwin is supporting the high school, but gun violence in general. It's an example of how fashion can be used to support a bigger cause. Of course, the model has been vocal about her support as well.
"Sending all my love and prayers to the families affected in Florida. More lives lost due to gun violence.. I don’t understand how this is still happening after all the horrifying tragedies we’ve witnessed! My heart is in pieces today," she wrote on Feb. 14, the day of the school shooting.
Baldwin wore the shirt on stage for the opening of the iHeartMusic Awards. It's not clear where the shirt is from or if the proceeds from the purchase went to the high school or an organization that supports survivors of gun violence. Because, let's be honest, spreading the message is great and all, but it's even better if the proceeds go to an organization that supports the message on the shirt.
The iHeartRadio Awards also had one of the Stoneman Douglas High School student that survived the shooting on the show to raise awareness for the March For Our Lives protest. If you're looking to support the cause sartorially, there are tons of different options that will have you looking great and give back to the cause.
Stoneman Douglas High School actually started selling their own shirts to raise awareness and funds. According to USA Today, the school's shirts, which read #MSDStrong, have already raised $180,000 for the school. This isn't the same one that Baldwin was wearing, but it does make the same, if not even bolder, statement. The top has the school logo on it and the hashtag on the back.
Whether you're looking to find a great shirt for the March For Our Lives or are just looking to spread awareness for gun violence, there are tons of shirts to choose from. Bonus points if you pair the tees with sparkly pants like Baldwin did.
