The smallest accessories can make the biggest statement, and Jamie Chung proved just that at the 2021 SAG Awards.
Even though the star-studded event was virtual this year, guests of honor still managed to wow with incredible looks. Jamie's flawless beach waves and off-the-shoulder Oscar de la Renta dress certainly turned heads, but her clutch is what did the talking. The Lovecraft Country actress took this opportunity to spread an important message, as her purse read, "Stop Asian Hate" in gold, capitalized letters.

Over the past several weeks, actors and actresses have used their platforms to speak out against Asian hate we've experienced across the country. Bowen Yang's Weekend Update appearance showcased his signature wit but also made an important point to stand up to hatred.
"It's the year of the metal ox which basically means a car, so everybody gets in, buckle up, it's no pee breaks, we ride at dawn Grandmas," Bowen said on SNL.
Meanwhile, Sandra Oh got right in the middle of a protest in Pittsburgh to deliver a brief but impactful statement. "We must understand as Asian Americans, we just need to reach our hands to our sisters and brothers and say, 'Help me,' and 'I am here,'" she said.
This year's SAG Awards also made a statement of its own with regards to acceptance and diversity. For the first time in the show's 27-year history, all four individual acting SAG Awards were received by people of color. This includes Daniel Kaluuya, the late Chadwick Boseman, Viola Davis, and Youn Yuh-Jung. During her acceptance speech, Youn said that the film Minari is about more than an "immigrant coming from South Korea" and that everyone needs to become "united together." We couldn't agree more.
