Hollywood actresses have reportedly come together to turn up in black on the red carpet of Golden Globe Awards in 2018. According to a report by the People Magazine, a number of sources confirmed that “many major actresses — including presenters and nominees (Jessica Chastain, Meryl Streep and Emma Stone are among those nominated)— are planning to wear all-black looks as a symbol of protest against harassment in Hollywood.”
“All female actresses attending the Globes are protesting by just wearing black gowns,” People Magazine quoted a source. This is a significant move as beyond social media and interviews, this is for the first time that the women will be launching a protest using their sartorial choices.
“Sources also suggest it was originally a small group of actresses planning to wear the shade in solidarity but, as the word has gotten out in Hollywood, more actresses have gotten onboard and currently 30 are planning to participate,” wrote the US Magazine. “All the stylists who already did fittings are now changing out their clients’ original picks for Globes (potentially shifting those dresses to the SAG Awards or other carpets),” the report added. It is also suggested that the trend could continue in other award shows in the new year too.
