This is Why Celebrities Wore Black to the Golden Globes — TimesUp

Marai Larasi and Emma Watson (R) attend The 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Actors, producers and activists alike stood in solidarity by sporting a color usually associated with grief.

She said that she believes change is long overdue, and her decision to wear red doesn't mean that she's against the movement.

"For years, we've sold these awards shows as women, with our gowns and colours and our handsome faces and our glamour", she said. "That's not what this moment is about". "Show your solidarity with people of all industries and say #TIMESUp for the imbalance of power", the soon-to-be mom captioned the photo. Longoria, who rocked her sweet baby bump in a custom Genny gown on the red carpet, took to social media to encourage others to join the movement and wear black.

It was announced last month that actresses would be wearing black to the Golden Globes in protest, but on the night they went one step further, sporting a very important accessory.

During the aceptance speech for her supporting role in "Big Little Lies", Laura Dern stated, "May we teach our children that speaking out without the fear of retribution is our culture's new North Star". "It's led to abuse in our own industry and it's led to abuse across the domestic workers field of work, it's in the military, it's, it's in congress, it's everywhere and, we want to fix that and, we feel sort of emboldened in this particular moment to stand together in a thick black line dividing".

Topping off her Golden Globes look with the most style was Tracee Ellis Ross who wore a Stephen Jones for Marc Jacobs turban that was shown on the designer's Spring 2018 runway.

According to a PEOPLE source, there was some resistance against the blackout before the red carpet on Sunday.

This isn't the first time women have taken control of the carpet. There were, as it turns out, a select few who didn't participate, and we've compiled a list of these individuals.
