They did it!
Just like they said they would, the majority of women walked the Golden Globes 2018 red carpet in all-black ensembles as a silent protest against sexual misconduct in Hollywood.
The all-black unofficial dress code was also used to raise awareness for Time’s Up, a new initiative which will fight all the sexual misconduct in Hollywood.
“I am wearing black to thank and honour all of the brave whistle blowers who came forward, shared their stories of harassment, assault, and discrimination,” said Will and Grace’s Debra Messing, who was easily one of our best dressed ladies on the red carpet last night.
“I’m wearing black to, to stand in solidarity with my sisters all over the globe and I’m here to celebrate the rollout of this incredible initiative Time’s Up.
“We want diversity, we want intersectional gender parity, equal pay.”
Meryl Streep – who has been criticised a lot for her alleged silence over Harvey Weinstein – was just one of the many A-listers who adhered to the all-black dress code.
“I think people are aware now of a power imbalance and it’s something that leads to abuse, it has led to abuse in our own industry,” she commented.
“We want to fix that and we feel emboldened in a thick black line dividing then from now.”
Meryl Streep was joined by the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker, Kerry Washington, Reese Witherspoon, America Ferrera, Eva Longoria, Michelle Williams, Debra Messing, Katherine Langford and even Angelina Jolie who brought her son Pax as her date (aww!), to name just a few, all hoping to make the biggest statement of their careers on the red carpet.
We know it wasn’t just about the fashion this year, but we still have to give credit where credit is due.
