For once, red-carpet questions about a woman's outfit make sense.
Ahead of the NAACP Image Awards, "Quantico" actress Aunjanue Ellis approached her show's costume designer with an unusual request.
Ellis wanted to find a way to send a message to the state of Mississippi, where she was born and raised. So she turned to "Quantico" costume designer Sami Rattner for help.
The result? A beautiful white dress with the words "Take it down Mississippi" written across the front, accompanied by a red handprint.
