The 'Black-ish' actress wears the sweatshirt to show support for Colin Kaepernick and his protest against racial injustice and police brutality.

AceShowbiz - A bunch of A-listers showed up in their best dresses at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles to attend the 70th annual Emmy Awards on Monday, September 17. One particular star caught everyone's attention due to its unique fashion choice for the award-giving show. Jenifer Lewis hit the red carpet in a Nike sweatshirt.

The "Black-ish" actress teamed her black-and-red sweatshirt with black leggings and black-and-white sneakers. Talking about her outfit, Lewis said that she wore it to show support for Colin Kaepernick. The latter became the face of Nike's new "Just Do It" campaign after he protested against racial injustice during the national anthem before football games last year.

Others stars who turned heads during the red carpet portion of the event include Tiffany Haddish, Millie Bobby Brown and Tracee Ellis Ross. While the "Girls Trip" star wore a colorful stripped gown, the "Stranger Things" actress bared her shoulders in a pink Calvin Klein princess gown.
