Amber Rose’s red carpet appearance made a fashion statement against slut shaming. She walked the red carpet with Blac Chyna and two assistants wearing their own graphic ensembles.

Rose wore a very form fitting catsuit emblazoned with the words “Slut,” “Bitch,” “Hoe,” and “Golddigger” in what looked like a shot at future presidential candidate, Kayne West, who had once very publicly made derogatory comments about his ex.

Joining Rose was Tyga’s ex, Blac Chyna, who has had her own beef with his once under-age girlfriend, Kylie Jenner. Their assistants walked along with homophobic slurs written on their outfits, a statement against homophobia.

Rose told Entertainment Tonight that the outfits were a response to the negative things that she has been called saying, ” We’re just embracing the negativity because regardless if we’re out with our sons, or we’re out with our moms, ore we got a new boo, we’re always labeled as a slut because we’re sexy and we’re sexual human beings. We got to the point where we’re just over that.”

She is set to hold her first Amber Rose Slut Walk in Los Angeles in October. Rose told ETonline that she hopes to bring awareness “to a lot of men and women that slut-shaming, victim blaming, rape and sexual assault happen every single day.” Adding that “it has happened to me on so many different levels…I really have been through some things…I lived it.” Not ready to tell her story she says, “maybe one day.”

Rose has her own style and had had a few high-profile romances though none of the men she was involved with have been the target of derogatory remarks about their sexual history. Her ex Kanye West took a few shots at her in a radio program when he said, “It’s very hard for a woman to to want to be with someone that’s with Amber Rose…I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim.” It was an interesting comment coming from a man who married a woman who became famous for a sex tape, and who was married to another man when they conceived their child.

If anything, not known for holding his tongue, should have remembered what his own wife went through and how difficult it is, even now, for her to leave her sex tape in the past. Amber Tweeted out a reminder to Kanye.

Rose’s fashion choice at the VMAs may not put an end to slut shaming but it is certainly making people talk. Some sources claim it was the hot topic backstage.
