Joy Villa dresses as Trump's border wall at 2019 Grammys

Joy Villa holds a purse that reads "Make America Great Again" at the 61st annual Grammy Awards at the Staples Center on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019, in Los Angeles.

"I believe in building the wall to protect our southern border, not to keep people out but to protect the citizens of our country", Villa told the Times. Ahead of the show, the brand shared a disclaimer with fans on Instagram, saying that the "views, thoughts, and opinions expressed by my clients are not necessarily the same as my views, thoughts, and opinions".

Villa said she supports President Donald Trump's views on immigration, which she believes are often wrongly associated with racism and xenophobia.

In 2015, she again created a stir when she sported a sheer dress of orange netting. As noted by Entertainment Tonight, Rebel, whose real name is Ricky Godinez, also showed off the year "2020" on his suit jacket in obvious support of a 2020 presidential bid from Trump.

This year, Villa kept things equally political on the red carpet and explained why she wore the controversial dress.

Villa now has a history of wearing conservative couture on the Grammys red carpet.

While Villa walked most of the red carpet wearing the border wall-inspired dress, she didn't arrive that way.

Villa took off the silver dress to reveal a new one underneath - a brick-print gown with the words, "Build The Wall", on the back.

When she first showed up at the event, Villa, a self-described feminist and Trump supporter, appeared to be dressed as Lady Liberty, in a silver off-the-shoulder look and crown.

The year before, Villa also used her look to send a message, with a MAGA gown.

Donald J. Trump has two big supporters at the GRAMMYs. The consequent publicity resulted in her album I Make the Static reaching number 1 among digital downloads on Amazon and iTunes in the US.

"One in three women who are trying to come to this country illegally are sexually assaulted", Villa continued.

"I voted for the person who wanted to heavily vet refugees".
