The 2018 Golden Globe Awards took over Hollywood on Sunday night, where dozens of celebrities—from Reese Witherspoon to Gal Gadot to Emma Stone—wore black as part of the #TimesUp movement, a protest against widespread sexual assault and harassment in the entertainment industry. Several men, including Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, also joined the “blackout,” which turned the Golden Globes into a political event that called for end of sexism and harassment in Hollywood.
If anyone thought the call to wear black on the Golden Globes red carpet would detract at all from the magic of fashion, these 11 gowns and the women wearing them will make you think again. Thanks to bold details, beautiful silhouettes, and eye-catching finishes, each of these gowns is as unique as the actress wearing it, while standing proudly in solidarity with the Time’s Up movement.
In fact, we’d argue, this red carpet and these standouts are among some of the best dresses in Globes red carpet history, thanks both to the breathtaking details and the message each black dress stands for.
With plenty of Hollywood’s stars coming together to support the black dress initiative (a protest against sexual harassment that might extend to future red carpets, too), we were prepared for a 2018 Golden Globes that struck a different tone. As far as fashion was concerned, this year women skipped out on all the glamour and forwent risky designs for looks more muted in tone.
Collectively, that made for quite the statement — as did the Time’s Up pins spotted among the crowd. These special accessories were brought to life by Reese Witherspoon and spoke to the message of the evening in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. As you can see, while we still watched to see what everyone wore, we were also in tune to the motive behind the style code. It was plain proof that clothes can hold a lot of weight.
