Time's Up at the Golden Globes
This year at the Golden Globe awards, all the stars flooded the red carpet in their most lavish black gowns and tuxedos. This was much more than a fashion statement, however; it marked a revolutionary new initiative and awareness to end sexual misconduct in the workplace as the event doubled as a kickoff for the Times Up movement.
All the ladies looked stunning in black with accessories to match. There was much uniformity in color, but that did not stop the stars from adding touches of their own. This year we noticed statement jewelry and a subtle pop of color trending among the women’s gowns. Standing out with statement jewelry were Viola Davis wearing Harry Winston multistrand diamonds and Issa Rae with a Lorraine Schwartz pendant necklace. Among those wearing a pop of color were Mandy Moore in a Rosie Assoulin gown with a red band at the bodice and Allison Williams in an Armani Prive gown with pops of orange and white beading in her black beaded strapless dress.
Even though this night was about the women, the men also showed their support. Chris Hemsworth, Zac Efron, Common, Aziz Ansari, and so many more donned all-black tuxes with a “Time’s Up” lapel pin to stand up in solidarity against sexual assault in the workplace.
This movement did not stop when the glamor of the Golden Globes ended. Celebrities are now selling their black dresses for 100% of the proceeds to benefit the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund. Nearly $16 million has been raised so far, and there doesn’t seem to be any plan to stop.
