Moore the loop motif and created the Red Ribbon”: the signal colour red stands for love, as well as passion. Initially, the Red Ribbon, especially in the art scene and among homosexuals was spread. Until she prevailed in the 1990s all over the world, as it was worn by famous movie stars such as Elizabeth Taylor and celebrities such as Lady Diana publicly on the lapel.
