As the Hollywood elite take to the red carpet at the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles tonight, many of the actresses - and actors - will be wearing black. Though, this is more than just a '2018 trend.'
Women such as Reese Witherspoon, Emma Stone and Brie Larson will be wearing black as part of the 'Time's Up' movement, which was launched by over 300 of the industry's most powerful women to fight sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace.
A post shared by Time's Up, and plenty of women in the industry, read: "On Sunday we wear black to stand in solidarity with women and men everywhere who have been silenced by discrimination, harassment or abuse."
"Wherever you are, whoever you are, whatever you're doing. Join us."
“I truly believe 2018 will be the era of accountability, and I can’t think of a better way to kick it off,” Cristina Ehrlich, stylist for big-name stars like Penelope Cruz and Brie Larson, recently told TIME. “The red carpet is watched globally and is therefore an incredible platform for and the perfect place for this sort of demonstration. Where in the past the red carpet has been about glitz and glamour, this year it isn’t about standing out, it’s about standing together and speaking out.”
The New York Times has also reported that eight actresses - Laura Dern, Amy Poehler, Susan Sarandon, Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, Emma Watson, Michelle Williams and Shailene Woodley - will be escorting female activists to the Golden Globes in place of their usual dates.
We can't wait to see the results of their hard, fierce work on the red carpet later today.
