There has been increasingly more to the Golden Globes Awards ceremony than the sole recognition of achievements in film, combined with a parade of glamour, but this year, the red carpets, too, played the role of a nuanced manifesto. In light of the events leading to the #METOO movement and all the way to #TimesUP initiative, celebrities unanimously agreed to wear an all-black attire at last night’s 75th edition of the Golden Globes Awards, giving the night an even more sober stance. With each year, the event has voiced the convictions of those determined to make a change in gender inequality, race or political issues.
Female leads in the year’s best films spoke in the red carpet interviews and upon handing or receiving awards about equal pay for women, a faulty ratio between male-female achievements in production and directing, but also about more unsettling matters such as sexual harassment and assault. Some of the most prominent names supporting the Time’s Up initiative are Reese Witherspoon, Mary J. Blidge, Eva Longoria, Alisson Janney and many more.
Here are a few of our favorite red carpet looks from last night. “Wonder Woman ” Gal Gadot wore an ankle-length black dress with cropped blazer, signed by Tom Ford. Nicole Kidman was divine in Givenchy Couture, paired up with Fred Leighton jewelry. Margot Robbie sparked a shine in Gucci dress with Roger Vivier clutch and sandals.
Some of the choices were bold the least to say. Alisson Brie and Christina Hendricks wore jumpsuits, Claire Foy wore a statement Stella McCartney and nominee Michelle Pfeiffer made quite a temperate choice, with Dior Couture blazer and maxi skirt.
