#WhyWeWearBlack: Our Favourite Golden Globes 2018 Looks | Clozette

It's awards season once again, friends. Aside from the winners, we're of course zeroing in on the fashion show-stoppers. But at this year's Golden Globe Awards, we're treated to more than just fashion fanfare. Most everyone who attended the event was clad in black in solidarity with women from across the globe, who are fighting against abuse and inequality — giving a different meaning to the term "making a statement with your outfit." We love all the women who supported the initiative but allow us to play favourites. Here are our picks. 


Tracee Ellis Ross



The Black-ish star looked equal parts fresh and regal in her Marc Jacobs dress and turban combo. Rumours that stars who will attend the 75th Golden Globe Awards started swirling in December after the series of exposes revealed the systematic abuse in the entertainment industry (as well as other industries).


Millie Bobby Brown



Millie Bobbie Brown looks elegant yet playful in her Calvin Klein number. While we can't confirm whether the dress Brown is wearing was conceived in a different colour, many designers said they were asked to remake the stars' chosen dresses in black. One of them is Naeem Khan, who originally made a gold dress for Christina Hendricks.


Kendall Jenner



Kendall Jenner attended wearing a Giambattista Valli gown. Those who have posted photos of their looks on Instagram have used the hashtags #WhyWeWearBlack as another way to show their support for the campaign against abuse. Some also used #TimesUp, to give light to the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund, which helps provide legal assistance to individuals who have been victims of sexual harassment in the workplace. 

America Ferrera and Natalie Portman



America Ferrera wore a suit to balance out her all-sequin dress. Meanwhile, Natalie Portman went for medieval vibes with her velvet, long-sleeved dress. Aside from wearing black, Portman also made a statement when she presented the nominees for the Best Director category, calling out how there were no female directors included in the list. 


Halle Berry



Halle Berry deviated from the usual long gowns and dresses worn in such formal occasions and opted for a mini lace dress — an apt choice for a gathering filled with statements and going against the grain. Apart from wearing black, some stars have also donated money to the Time's Up Legal Fund to show their support.

The Meghan Markle bag




The Meghan Markle effect is real, friends. After being photographed carrying the Strathberry Midi Tote bag, it sold out immediately. The bag is in the process of being restocked, and now bears the name of Markle. You can pre-order the bag here.
