Here's Why White Roses Will Trend at the 2018 Grammy Awards

The flowers will make a powerful statement.

We're currently taking office bets about which about red carpet trends will rule the 2018 Grammy Awards. But, while we're only guessing that sparkles, cut-outs, and perhaps a few chaps will appear at the January 28 event, we do know one thing's 99 percent sure to be trending: white roses. 

While celebrities wore black outfits to show their support for the Time's Up movement at the Golden Globes, the Grammys will use the floral symbol to show support for the women's-rights-centric cause. 

The white roses initiative is spearheaded by a group called Voices in Entertainment. Some 15 women from the group worked on a collaborative letter, which urged music industry pros to don the symbolic flower at the upcoming event. 

"As we are inspired by the #timesup campaign, we are encouraging the artists that we work with and our colleagues attending the 60th Annual Grammy Awards in New York City to wear a white rose to the ceremony on Sunday, January 28th,” the letter read. “We choose the white rose because historically it stands for hope, peace, sympathy and resistance.”

The note also urged: “Please join us in support of equal representation in the workplace, for leadership that reflects the diversity of our society, workplaces free of sexual harassment and a heightened awareness of accountability that our sisters started on January 1st and continued through the Golden Globes and onward.”

Hope, peace, sympathy, and resistance are all causes we can get behind, and we look forward to seeing which stars will adopt the progressive dress code at this year's awards show.
