The Golden Globe Awards 2018: The Women in Black

The little black dress expresses a moment of freedom and individuality every time.

~ Andre Leon Talley

It was a red carpet blackout at this year’s Golden Globes. Usually, the Golden Globe Awards; the first event to kick off awards season, is a relaxed, very chilled affair with lots of champagne (or if you’re Tom Hanks, lots of martinis) and is as close to a non-ceremonious ceremony as it gets in Hollywood.  Naturally, with the current state of affairs, there may be the occasional barbed political joke or satire but overall, it’s the most casual of all the awards. Well, as casual as it gets when you’re wearing haute couture.

This year, solidarity sisterhood was making a long overdue comeback in response to the #MeToo movement and #TimesUp campaign, both of which exploded onto the scene in response to those chilling revelations about Hollywood’s “casting-couch” system, but were already well established initiatives shining a light on women in less privileged professions tackling gender inequality and sexual harassment in the workplace. Many actresses chose to wear black in support of the Time’s Up movement, standing in solidarity with all victims of sexual assault and harassment and some actresses, including Meryl Streep, Emma Watson and Michelle Williams, were accompanied by activists on the red carpet.

It’s not the first time fashion has been used as a narrative, hello, burned any bras? And contrary to some, fashion is far from frivolous. That being said, we are a fashion blog and no one ever said you can’t appreciate a well-dressed woman. So, as a compromise, we’re picked our favourite moments from the Golden Globe Awards, including the red carpet and some gems from the ceremony itself.
