On January 7, the Golden Globes will premiere on NBC, kicking off the start of the red carpet season. If current rumors are true, this will be unlike any red carpet we’ve ever witnessed, however, marking an unprecedented moment in fashion history.
According to reports from US Weekly and The Morning Breath, the 2018 GGs carpet will be dominated by one very surprising color: black. That’s because, as the outlet reports, many of the show’s attendees will be making a political statement by choosing to wear the hue, one which often represents mourning, in solidarity against the sexual harassment and assault allegations that have flooded the latter half of 2017.
While we’ve seen politics infused on the red carpet before — you might recall the messages The Big Bang Theory’s Simon Helberg and wife Jocelyn Towne wore on the 2017 SAG Awards carpet in support of refugees, the blue ACLU ribbons that popped up on the Oscars red carpet, or the “Black Lives Matter” jersey actress Sasha Lane donned at the Independent Spirit Awards — this would be the largest organized Awards show fashion protest to date, if true.
With as many as 30 stars rumored to be onboard (and counting), the outlet is reporting that many stylists may be working overtime with their clients reportedly making the decision to change their clothing last minute. We’ll definitely be keeping an eye to see who shows up wearing what!
What do you think of the idea actresses may be showing up in all black? Tell us over @BritandCo.
