This is Why Celebrities Wore Black to the Golden Globes — TimesUp

Three months after Hollywood's biggest names were rocked with accusations of sexual harrasment amid the Harvey Weinstein scandal, Latina celebs took a stand by wearing all-black at this year's Golden Globes.

Star Chris Hemsworth arrived in all black to show his support for the movement.

Natalie Portman said in an Instagram video that she wore black to "be in solidary with all people who have suffered discrimination, harassment, abuse in the workplace".

"For years, we've sold these awards shows as women, with our gowns and colors and our attractive faces and our glamour", she said, adding, "This time, the industry can't expect us to go up and twirl around".

Arguably one of the most vocal supporters of the Time's Up movement, Reese Witherspoon, has worked with costume designer Arianne Phillips to design more than 500 Time's Up pins for stars to wear to the awards show.

"Reese asked me to come to the actors' group, and told me they were going to be wearing black and would I consider creating a pin for the nominees and male presenters", Phillips told The Hollywood Reporter.

"For years, we've sold these awards shows as women, with our gowns and colours and our lovely faces and our glamour", she said. "I'm with it", DuVernay said.

Actor Ansel Elgort arrives for the 75th Golden Globe Awards on January 7, 2018, in Beverly Hills, wearing all black to show his support.

It was a blackout on the red carpet this year except for a few fearless celebs who chose to wear a different colour.

Speaking on the same note, filmmaker Ava DuVernay and actress Allison Janney, who also donned black attire, said that the step is taken to stand with other like-minded people.
