Actresses Wear Black At 2018 Golden Globes To Support “Me Too” Movement, Wear “Time’s Up” Pins
Nearly all of actors and actresses donned black at the 75th Golden Globes on Sunday night in Beverly Hills, California to show support for organizations like Time’s Up and 50:50 dedicated to combatting sexual harassment and gender inequality in Hollywood.

Many stars also wore pins with the words “Time’s Up,” an organization that has reportedly received about $15 million in donations as of Sunday, thus fast approaching its goal of $16 million.
Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Eva Longoria, Salma Hayek, Ashley Judd, Penelope Cruz, Margot Robbie, Kelly Clarkson, Angelina Jolie, Jessica Chastain and Jessica Biel are among the actresses who chose to dress in black.
The men who wore black suits or tuxedoes included Chris Hemsworth, Aziz Ansari, Zac Efron, Ewan McGregor, Keith Urban and Kit Harrington.
Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Meher Tatna wore red instead of black, although she did have a Time’s Up pin.
“As part of her Indian culture, it’s customary to wear a festive colour during a celebration,” a source said of Tatna’s wardrobe selection.
German model Barbara Meier wore a beige floral gown, while actress Bianca Blanco wore a red dress.
Golden Globes – everyone I saw wore black – men and women – except for these 3 – actress Blanca Blanco, model Barbara Meier, and actress Zenobia Shroff! Why why why? Were you living under a rock since June 2017?0 #DidNotGetTheMemo #IgnoranceIsDiss pic.twitter.com/iH0VOjNCUm

Meier explained her choice on Instagram, saying that women should be able to wear something “a little more sexy” and that it wasn’t their fault that “men cannot control themselves”.
Blanco has not commented on her decision to wear red, although some people began criticizing the 36-year-old California native on Twitter for wearing a skimpy dress some say was completely disrespectful to the “Me Too” movement.
“The issue is bigger than my dress color “TIMESUP,” Blanco tweeted in response to the vitriol. “Shaming is part of the problem.”
One can only guess that black will also be a popular shade for stars at the Academy Awards on March 4, or perhaps at other awards ceremonies this year.
