HOLLYWOOD — Everywhere you look, it’s stars in Stars & Stripes.
For showbiz, each day is Flag Day — at least, according to Daily Variety‘s fashion flag poll. At premieres, parties and recording sessions, some celebs are proud to acknowledge recent events with reminders of N.Y. heroes, but in general, Old Glory is the fashion fave.
It’s a new time, a new century and a new outlook: In the ’70s, wearing a flag was a counterculture statement that shocked the status quo. Now, it’s seen as a gesture of patriotism and solidarity.
These days, at any showbiz party, you can shake your booty, you can shake your groove thing or you can shake your Glory.
But the question is: With other nations strongly supporting our airstrikes, will a United Nations flag become the next fashion statement?
