Watching the red carpet at the Golden Globes 2018 this year is unlike any year in the past. Women were nearly universally dressed in black, as a show of solidarity, and support for Time’s Up, a movement and charitable initiative in response to #MeToo and the fallout from Weinstein sexual assault scandal. The initiative has already raised $15 million to create a legal defense fund for victims of sexual misconduct. I can’t even imagine ranking any best or worst-dressed outfits on the red carpet this year, so instead, I’m rounding up some of my favourite looks from the evening. And fashion is still important this evening too… the designers and stylists that dressed celebrities in black to support this cause deserve praise and recognition as well.
Margot Robbie looked so chic in this Gucci gown with silver embroidery and puffed sleeves.
Also in Gucci, Dakota Johnson looked amazing and laidback in this spaghetti-strapped gown. I love the contrast between the velvet and the organza tulle. I also bet that 1980s-inspired bejewelled waist belts will be a big trend this year.
Many celebrities chose to wear a suit, including Claire Foy in this double-breasted, masculine Stella McCartney ensemble.
Catherine Zeta-Jones accessorized this sheer Zuhair Murad lace gown with gorgeous green Lorraine Schwartz earrings. I liked the pop of colour, as well as this daring choice for Zeta-Jones.
Zoe Kravitz looked chic AF in this velvet gown and also wore green earrings (trend alert… Debra Messing also wore green earrings!)
My jaw literally dropped when I saw Jessica Biel in this perfectly sheer Dior gown, and dazzling Bulgari jewels.
I love Tracee Ellis Ross in this Marc Jacobs dress and turban.
I am living for Alison Brie in this pretty satin gown/pant combo by Vassilis Zoulias. Best of both worlds to me.
This black and white Oscar de la Renta jumpsuit on Alexis Bledel is very chic, and unexpected.
I love Kerry Washington’s booties! Combined with the sexy leg slit, it’s very cool and different for a black tie event.
It was incredibly moving to watch all these movie stars come together to stand up to the power imbalance in Hollywood and beyond. From Oprah’s speech, to Natalie Portman throwing shade on the all-male director nominees, the evening was unlike any other awards ceremony, and hopefully the momentum will continue.
