At the 2018 Golden Globes, an endless list of stars including Tracee Ellis Ross, Emma Stone, and Meryl Streep, all wore black to support the Time's Up initiative and victims of sexual assault. The power move nearly caused a complete blackout on the red carpet. However, it appears that a few women decided to skip out on red carpet protest.
Here are three women who chose not to wear black last night, and their reasons why.
The actress opted for a red asymmetrical cut-out dress with a daring thigh-high slit instead of a black dress. When asked about her fashion choice, Blanco shared that deciding to wear a red dress did not mean that she was against the movement.
"I love red," she told Fox News. "Wearing red does not mean I am against the movement. I applaud and stand by the courageous actresses that continue to break the cycle of abuse through their actions and fashion style choices. It is one of many factors leading women to a safer place because of their status. I am excited about the #TimesUp movement; true change is long overdue."
German model Barbara Meier wore a sheer floral gown, and explained her ensemble choice in an Instagram post Sunday evening. In the post, Meier explains — in German and English — that while she is a supporter of the movement, she also believes that women should be able to wear whatever they want.
"We were fighting a long time for the freedom to wear what we want to and that it is also ok, to dress up a little more sexy," she wrote. "If we now restrict this, because some men can’t control themselves, this is a huge step back in my opinion."
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association President wore a red ensemble to the show, however she did accessorize her look with a Time’s Up pin. As reported by The Wrap, Tatna supports the movement, but she decided to go with a dress she chose with her mother.
"As part of her Indian culture, it’s customary to wear a festive color during a celebration — in this case being the 75th anniversary," a source told the site.
