BAFTA 2023: Why Celebrities Wore Blue Ribbons On Red Carpet

Jamie Lee wore her pin alongside her Everything Everywhere All At Once co-stars, Jonathan Wang and Ke Huy Quan; choosing to wear it on her wedding ring.

The ribbon marks an incredibly important cause, after earthquakes hit Turkey and Syria, killing an estimated 44,000 and displacing thousands more. Around 8 million people have also been displaced since Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022.

The United Nations refugee agency, the UNHCR, invited stars hitting the BAFTA red carpet to wear the ribbon as an “emblem of compassion and solidarity” for those who have been forced to flee their homes because of war, conflict, and persecution.

According to the UNHCR, there are more than 103 million forcibly displaced people around the world.
