It's An All Black Affair: Actresses Will Wear Black To Golden Globes
Next to the nominees, fashion is a very important part of awards season. But this year, is set to be an unforgettable year.
According to People, major actresses including presenters and nominees are gearing up to wear all black to the 2018 Golden Globes.
Celebrities such as, Emma Stone, Meryl Streep and Jessica Chastin are planning on wearing all black as a symbolic form of protest against harassment in Hollywood. It's safe to say, Harvey Weinstein is definitely one of the inspirations behind the color scheme. The producer was accused of sexual misconduct by several women in such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Cara Delevigne and most recently Salma Hayek.
Since the spark of the #MeToo hashtag on social media, women who have suffered from similar experiences have shone a light on mistreatment not only in Hollywood, but everywhere.
The decision to make the awards an "All Black Affair" follows the announcement that all presenters at the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards will be female.
This isn't the first time that Hollywood is getting to support a cause. In 2017, several celebs supported the American Civil Liberties Union and wore blue pins in front of the camera.
In a recent CAA meeting about gender equality in the industry, there was talk of a new protocol for the red carpet.
Jennifer Siebel Newsom, founder and CEO of The Representation Project, thinks her campaign urging red carpet reporters to #AskHerMore is more relevant now than ever.
#AskHerMore is about treating women as full human beings rather than objects.
"I hope the red-carpet interviewers ask about the power the media has to make a difference in the world," Newsom said.
Sources also suggest that it was originally a small group that had planned to wear the shade. But as word got out actresses have decided to get on board and make a statement.
"We should not focus solely on these women's appearances. We need a balance," Newsom continued.
Everyone will be patiently waiting to see if female celebs will make the awards an "All Black Affair." Although, this is a great statement it's unfortunate for stylists that have pulled dresses and arranged fittings. Back to the drawing board!
