Oscars: Stars Wear Blue #WithRefugees Ribbons

Many attendees use their outfits to make a statement on the Academy Awards red carpet.

Many celebrities wore blue ribbons from the UN Refugee Agency on this year's red carpet. These blue ribbons bear the hashtag #withrefugees in reference to the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine and in solidarity with all oppressed people.

These included Jamie Lee Curtis, Samuel L. Jackson, Diane Warren, Yuh-Jung Youn, Nicholas Britell and Paolo Sorrentino as well as the “Hand of God” cast.

Jason Momoa wore a blue and yellow pocket square, the Ukrainian flag's colours.

On February24, Russia invaded Ukraine, launching missiles and airstrikes on Ukrainian cities, including Kyiv.

The Russian invasion has forced over 3.6 million Ukrainians to flee their country in the last month. The invasion has killed at least 3,000 civilians, according to Ukraine.

The Ukrainian flag was prominently displayed on the red carpet of the Screen Actors Guild Awards in February. Actors like Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have helped raise millions for Ukraine.
