The 2018 Grammys red carpet was filled with political statements, featuring white roses, 'Time's Up' badges - and a hand-painted foetus.

Singer Joy Villa communicated her anti-abortion beliefs by showing up to the awards ceremony in a white gown, decorated with a picture of a rainbow-coloured embryo.

She painted the foetus onto the fabric herself. 

The singer accessorised the politically charged dress with a tiara and a small handbag bearing the words 'Choose Life'.

Villa told Fox News that she identifies as a "pro-life woman".

"This year, I chose to make a statement on the red carpet, like I always do," she said.

"I'm all about life."

Other artists wore white roses and 'Time's Up' badges to the Grammys, in support of the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment and abuse.

Once the ceremony was underway, Villa took to Twitter, mostly to mock other celebrities attending the event.

Villa made headlines at last year's Grammy Awards, when she turned up in a pro-Trump gown, emblazoned with the slogan 'Make America Great Again'.
