More than 30 women in Hollywood are reportedly planning on showing up to the 2018 Golden Globes in black as a silent protest against the industry’s history of rampant sexual harassment and assault. Rose McGowan wasn’t feeling that protest, so I can only imagine how she feels about this latest act of red carpet bravery. According to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and celebrity stylist Ilaria Urbinanti, several men will be joining in on the all-black silent protest too.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Ilaria Urbinanti answered a question she keeps getting asked, which apparently is, “What color will you be dressing your clients in this year?“. Will it be black? Noir? Charcoal? Onyx? Dark navy? All of Ilaria’s clients will be wearing black in protest.
Because everyone keeps asking me… YES, the men WILL be standing in solidarity with women on this wearing-all-black movement to protest against gender inequality at this year’s Golden Globes. At least ALL MY GUYS will be. Safe to say this may not be the right time to choose to be the odd man out here… just sayin…
Ilaria styles The Rock, as well as Tom Hiddleston, Garrett Hedlund, and Armie Hammer, who is nominated for Call Me By Your Name. Ilaria didn’t specify which of her clients would be attending in black, but The Rock confirmed he’d be one of them by commenting, “Yes we will.”
Some might think that wearing black is quite possibly the lowest-effort protest these guys could possibly partake in. But I believe it’s a real sacrifice for those men to wear black on Golden Globes day. They’re going to be exhausted by the time they make it up the red carpet and into the ballroom of the Beverly Hilton. Because every reporter they talk to will ask them the exact same question: “So, like, is this because of the protest, or….just a coincidence due to the fact that 98% of tuxedos are black.”
