12 Famous Women Who Sent a Message to the World Without Saying a Word
Singer Taylor Swift is known as the queen of Easter eggs: she likes to use them in her songs, music videos, and even costumes, while her fans have fun finding and deciphering them. But there are even more celebrities who don’t mind sending secret messages to the world or a certain special someone.
At Bright Side, we decided to search the Internet and try to decipher the secret messages of celebrities who used them in their outfits, accessories, and even makeup.
Scarlett Johansson and Brie Larson
At the premiere of Avengers: Endgame, Scarlett Johansson and Brie Larson attracted everyone’s attention not just with their gorgeous dresses, but also with their accessories. Both actresses showed up wearing jewelry versions of the Infinity Gauntlet. This was a very elegant Easter egg.
In 2018, at the annual Met Gala event, the actress had to come alone without her husband and kids. However, she found a way to take them with her. She had a stunning dress on, but the main feature of her outfit was a clutch. It had the first initials of each family member on it.
At the premiere of Deadpool 2, which starred Ryan Reynolds, Lively expressed her support for her husband by wearing an outfit that featured the movie’s main colors, black and maroon. Additionally, she had a clutch that looked like an old-school cassette tape, which was a replica of a cassette shown in the movie.
At the 92nd Academy Awards ceremony, the actress showed up wearing a black-and-gold gown with a matching cape — but there was a hidden message inside it. It included the names of female directors excluded from that year’s “Best Director” category embroidered into the cape’s lining. It just so happened that only male directors were nominated that year. The actress explained, “I wanted to recognize the women who were not recognized for their incredible work this year, in my subtle way.”
In 2018, Selena Gomez wore a tiny bag to the Met Gala event. It was a custom-made bag with writing on it. This wasn’t the first time the celebrity used the Met Gala red carpet to send a secret message. A year earlier, her bag said, “Love yourself first.”
At the 2018 Grammy Awards ceremony, singer Lorde wore a red tulle gown with a message that was hidden on its back. She hand-stitched an essay by Jenny Holzer there.
At the 2018 Academy Awards ceremony, actress Tiffany Haddish showed up wearing a cream satin dress with golden embroidery and a matching black jacket. Her hair was styled in a bun, and her forehead was adorned with a gold headpiece. There was a hidden meaning behind this look. By wearing an Eritrean authentic princess dress, she honored the memory of her late father who was from Eritrea in Eastern Africa.
Millie Bobby Brown
At the 2018 Golden Globes, Millie Bobby Brown, known as Eleven on the Stranger Things TV series, showed up with an original hairdo. She had 3 intricate braids forming 2 parallel lines, or a number 11. Fans believe that the actress honored her character this way. However, there was no official confirmation of this.
To the Twin Peaks premiere in 2017, Amanda Seyfried came in a tight black dress with a bottom hem that read: EQUALITY. It’s believed that Seyfried wanted to attract attention to the pay gap for actors and actresses. She posted the photo from the premiere on her Instagram and wrote, “Twin Peaks, equality and diamonds for everyone.”
At the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards, actress Elisabeth Moss wore a light pink dress and matching shoes with soles that concealed a secret message. Her stylist, Karla Welch, posted a photo of one of the shoes, implying that we should guess what the other shoe said. The sole said “off.” There is an opinion that the other shoe said “red.” This is a nod to Moss’s character’s name in The Handmaid’s Tale.
Very few people know that Emma Watson’s gorgeous black and white gown she wore to the Met Gala event in 2016 was made of trash. The outfit was made of recycled plastic water bottles. The actress chose one of the most important events of the year to show that one could look stunning and be eco-friendly at the same time.
At the 2018 Golden Globe Awards, some celebrities decided to wear black to support the women’s movement, Time’s Up. Emma Stone was among them, but she went even further. Her makeup artist, Rachel Goodwin, found out that suffragettes often wore purple, green, and white clothes and accessories, so she decided to used these colors in Stone’s makeup.
