Rapinoe wore it with a royal blue blouse that was embroidered with white stars. Her matching clutch bag read "In Gay We Trust" on one side, a play on "In God We Trust."

The theme of this year's gala that led to Rapinoe's interpretation of American identity was "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion" - a celebration of American fashion, as reported by The New York Times in April.

Rapinoe, who plays for the US women's national team, is openly gay and frequently advocates for LGBT rights within and outside of the sporting arena, as Insider's Frank Olito previously reported.

In July 2019, the athlete discussed her political advocacy with NBC News: "I think female athletes, in general, are at the forefront of every protest in general because we're gay, we're women, we're women of color, we're sort of everything all at one time."
