Why everyone's wearing black to this year's Golden Globes

This year's Golden Globes red carpet will be memorable for many reasons. 

The first televised awards ceremony to kick start what is sure to be a controversial awards season, the 75th annual Golden Globes are casting a dark shadow over Los Angeles' Beverly Hilton this year, with more than 300 actresses, female directors and writers pledging to show up to the red carpet wearing all black in support of the Time's Up initiative

Spurred on by the sexual harassment issues that surfaced late in 2017, the "all-black" dress code marks the very tip of the proverbial iceberg when it comes to fight sexual discrimination not just in Hollywood, but all over the United States. 

Time's Up have also set up a $13 million dollar legal fund to support low-income workers to defend themselves against sexual harassment and unfair treatment in the workplace. 

Support for this worthy cause has rolled in thick and fast, with high-end brands like Calvin Klein, Inc. declaring its commitment to advocating for and defending victims of sexual assault, harassment and inequality in the workplace. 

The fashion label also made a financial contribution to Time's Up's Legal Defense Fund. Keep your eyes peeled for Millie Bobby Brown and Sarah Paulson, who were wardrobed in black Calvin Klein By Appointment dresses, designed by Chief Creative Officer Raf Simons. 

When flicking through every red carpet image from the 2018 Golden Globes, you can't help but notice each look projects a different message. Actresses are forgoing risky designs and all out glamour for more demure dress, in a powerful move to subvert the male gaze. 

Keep your eyes peeled for the Time's Up pins worn by keen supporters, designed by Reese Witherspoon in the wake of the Weinstein scandal.
