*It was all black everything on the Golden Globes red carpet Sunday as celebs raised awareness against sexual harassment and supported the #MeToo movement by wearing black designer wear.
Issa Rae, Halle Berry, Tracee Ellis Ross, Mariah Carey, Kerry Washington and Viola Davis were among those working the red carpet in black gowns for the cause. Also on hand was #MeToo founder Tarana Burke, decked in black.
Lena Waithe, star, and writer on the Golden Globe-nominated “Master of None,” told Deadline.com: “It’s just not about sexual harassment. That’s where it began.” She goes on to talk about the organization Times Up saying, “they not only want to stop sexual harassment but racism, homophobia, transphobia — all those things. This is about making everyone being treated equally and having a happy and safe work environment — whether you work in Hollywood or are a farmer or a nurse. All of us wearing black is a small token of our solidarity.”
Many black gowns and outfits on the red carpet featured a pin promoting “Time’s Up,” the newly launched organization started by a group of 300 women in the entertainment industry that is designed to address what’s described as “the systemic power imbalances that have kept underrepresented groups from reaching their full potential.”
The pin was designed by Oscar-nominated costume designer Arianne Phillip, who also helped design the logo. She has worked on the Kingsman franchise as well as Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals and A Single Man.
