Ruth Negga kicked of the 89th Annual Oscars red carpet with a bang!

The Loving star hit the scene at the 2017 Academy Awards in an arresting crimson red Valentino number.

The gorgeous gown with lace details and a delicate train was paired with fierce cranberry platform sandals.

On top of donning a dazzling look, Negga topped it all off with the ultimate accessory — a blue ribbon worn in support of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), an organization committed to preserving the liberties we all have under the U.S. constitution.

We love fashion with a cause, and if there was ever a time to make a statement about the constitutional rights of Americans, this is it. This look is right on time!
