Blanca Blanco, the actress who made a statement at the Golden Globes by wearing a red dress while most other attendees opted for black gowns to protest sexual harassment in the entertainment industry, is back with another standout look.

At the Oscars on Sunday, Blanco again walked the red carpet in the standout color from designer Atria Couture. According to Fox News, Blanco helped design the dress. “The colors I selected were important to me because those colors symbolize equality, new beginnings, and passion,” she said.

Although her last look featured cutouts across the front, her outfit for the Academy Awards similarly revealed a lot of skin but in a different manner. The front of the dress was plunging, dipping to her torso just above her bellybutton. The piece also had a high leg slit.

As one person on Twitter said, the dress was basically a “wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen.”


After being criticized for her sexy look in January, she said that the critique hurt her feelings. “But I guess it’s part of being in our industry,” she said. “We have people who appreciate you and others that don’t. The designer Atria Couture did an amazing job with my dress and I appreciate them for dressing me. Shaming is part of the problem.”
