At the 75th Golden Globe Awards last night, the color black dominated the red carpet and the awards ceremony. All your favorite A-listers donned their best looks but let go of the usual fiery colors in support of the #TimesUp movement by wearing black ensembles.
The Time’s Up movement was founded as we rang in the new year. It’s described as “a unified call for change from women in entertainment for women everywhere, from movie sets to farm fields to boardrooms alike, we envision nationwide leadership that reflects the world in which we live.” A letter was published on Jan 1, 2018, in The New York Times that further talks about their mission, which includes a $13 million legal defense fund, administered by The National Women’s Law Center, to support lower income women seeking justice for sexual harassment and abuse in the workplace. It’s a movement towards closing the gender pay gap in studios and talent agencies.
They also called for everyone to dress in black at the year’s first major awards, the Golden Globes. The women, fiercely supporting one another, looked their best in stunning black dresses and suits while the men wore Time’s Up pins to show in solidarity. In a refreshing and much-needed change of pace, no one was asked “who are you wearing” at the red carpet. Yes, women were finally looked upon as more than just clothes hangers.
The Golden Globes is just the beginning. #TimesUp.
Here are some of the powerful, beautiful looks from the 2018 Golden Globes:

3. Meher Tatna, President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association
HFPA President Tatna acknowledged the Time’s Up movement and it’s game-changing message. However, she adorned a beautiful red dress instead of wearing black because she’s Indian-origin. She said that in her roots, wearing black indicates a period of mourning. Her mother would be appalled if she chose to wear it.
