What will the best-dressed be wearing on the Golden Globes carpet? Black
Prominent Hollywood women are shunning the shimmery pastels, metallics, and jewel tones of years past for black at this Sunday’s Golden Globes.
On their red-carpet walk to the Beverly Hilton for the 75th annual soiree, Golden Globes nominees say they will stand in solidarity with victims of sexual harassment and assault by wearing black.
“I’m bringing one of my best friends with me, and she’ll be wearing black also,” Golden Globe nominee Saoirse Ronan told The Associated Press on Tuesday from the 27th annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala, where the “Lady Bird” star wore a pink-and-red satin gown with a slit at the thigh.
The call to don black is backed by Time’s Up, a coalition and legal defense fund founded in the wake of the #MeToo movement to support men and women who have experienced workplace sexual abuse. The fund has raised more than $15 million in just over two weeks.

In addition to the wearing black, some celebrities will accessorize with a logo pin that reads “Time’s Up.”
The pin, which can be pre-ordered for $12, was designed by costume designer and stylist Arianne Phillips at the request of actress Reese Witherspoon.
Look for showrunner Shonda Rhimes and actresses Meryl Streep, Allison Janney, Emma Stone and Witherspoon to also don black and pins on the red carpet at the Golden Globes.
