Golden Globes 2018
Draped in Black
For ‘Time’s Up’ Movement
1/7/2018 3:10 PM PST
Scores of actresses and their guests left their hotels for the Beverly Hilton hotel draped in a variety of black dresses and outfits.
Some big actresses have formed the activist group, Time’s Up, and penned an open letter. Among them … Meryl Streep, Reese Witherspoon, Debra Messing, Shonda Rhimes, Emma Stone, Charlize Theron, Sarah Jessica Parker and Michelle Williams, who brought #MeToo founder Tarana Burke as her guest.
The blackout was staged as a protest of sorts, but it’s also an effort to raise money for a legal defense fund for victims of sexual misconduct in the workplace. As of Sunday, the group had already raised upwards of $15 million, with a goal of at least $16 mil.
As we reported … wearing black to the Golden Globes was a pretty common fashion choice prior to 2018. Unclear who wore black for what reason, aside from those in Time’s Up.
