Fashion at the Golden Globes was inspiring, as usual. But this year, in light of the Harvey Weinstein scandal that broke this October, (with reports from actresses Rose McGowan and Ashley Judd detailing sexual assault) the organization “Time’s Up” decided to stage a “blackout” at the red carpet: Celebrities wore black to fight sexual harassment in the workplace. Men wore “Time’s Up” pins to show their support as well.

In December, rumors of a “blackout” on the red carpet began to circulate, though nothing was confirmed until January 2, when more than three hundred celebrities officially backed the campaign. The fact that this movement had such widespread support across the board rather than various individuals speaking out demonstrated a rare moment of unity in Hollywood.

Zac Efron went for a classic tuxedo look, but still followed the “Time’s Up” movement with the all black ensemble. The cast of Stranger Things also showed their support with the “Time’s Up” pin and all black attire. However, the red carpet did feature some pops of color. Keala Settle, part of Golden Globe nominated movie “The Greatest Showman” donned a black v-neck dress with a turquoise collar and train, providing a nice change of pace while still adhering to the theme.

However, the “blackout” was not universal. Hollywood Foreign Press President Meher Tatna, as well as model Barbara Meier, and actress Blanca Blanco went with a more colorful approach for the evening. Though Blanco has not yet commented, Tatna said her choice had more to do with her culture, but she is reported to be a big supporter of the “Time’s Up” movement. Barbara Meier said her outfit choice was an expression of freedom, and a representation of women being able to wear what they want.

This movement has clearly shown the commitment A-listers have to help eradicate sexual harassment in the workplace and help put it on the national stage. The color restriction certainly didn’t prevent creativity and style on the red carpet, as no two dresses (or suits) were alike.
