#TIMESUP


2018 Golden Globes

One of the subjects I have always blogged about has been what the 'Stars' were wearing on Award Show Red Carpets & what I liked/didn't like about what they were wearing. And jumping back into blogging after taking a much needed break, I was excited for the Award Season to come around; I thought my usual 'Red Carpet Review' would make a great first blog post after my break and that it would be perfect for my first post of 2018...

but this year isn't usual.

And the first Award Show Red Carpet of 2018 wasn't usual either. It made me pause and wonder whether or not I should actually write a post about this year's Golden Globes, but then I realized that if there were ever a year to "review" the Golden Globes, 2018 was it. This year in the wake of all the sexual harassment/assault allegations, the TIME'S UP campaign was started along with it's Legal Defense Fund to stop sexual abuse.

Please read more about it HERE and see how you can donate to the Fund yourself.

In support of this campaign, the guests of the 2018 Golden Globes all wore black "...in solidarity of women and men everywhere who have been silenced by discrimination, harassment, or abuse."

The night was not about who or what the celebrities were wearing, but why.
Please see below for just some of the many beautiful examples of the women that stood in solitary with everyone to stop sexual abuse and to make the future safe.

Abuse is horrible. It needs to end. And with a night that has such a large reach, it was great to see so many women use it to show that they stand with their fellow women to show their support for those who have spoken out about their abuse, for those who haven't spoken out yet and for those who can't, and to show their support in saying TIME IS UP.
