Tons of your favorite stars from movies, television and music stepped out last night for the 2018 Golden Globes. The most famous men and women in Hollywood wore black as a sign of solidarity, which served as a very positive platform for the Time's Up Movement. So what was the message behind the movement, exactly? We're breaking it down.

Why did everyone wear black to the Golden Globes?

In wake of the recent movement against sexual assault and misconduct, this demonstration was designed to bring this issue to light by changing the hot red carpet question from "Who are you wearing?" to "Why are you wearing black tonight?" From Dove Cameron to Zac Efron to Katherine Langford – so many of your favorite celebrities stepped out in fabulous black looks in order to show that time is up on letting this injustice go on for any longer. Watch the video below to see all your fave stars red carpet looks from the 2018 Golden Globes.


What is the Time's Up movement?

Similar to the Me Too movement, started by civil rights activist Tarana Burke, Time's Up empowers women to speak up about sexual harassment in order to create safe workplaces and ensure that women are treated with equality and respect from this point forward. Last night, the hashtag #WhyWeWearBlack swept social media, as all genders came together to take step forward in fighting for a better tomorrow.

Did anyone not wear black to the Golden Globes?

While almost everyone on the red carpet both (men and women, might we add) was decked out in back from head to toe, there were some who didn't. German model Barbara Meier and actress Blanca Blanco were two that caused buzz for not taking part in all-black the movement.

While president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association Meher Tatna chose to express her Indian culture in a festive red ensemble, she proudly wore a black-and-white "Time's Up" pin to show her support of the movement. "I am totally in solidarity with them," she said.

Which stars brought activists as their dates?

Both Emma Watson and Emma Stone were just two of the hottest celebs to bring very special individuals as their dates to the star-studded event. Retired American tennis player and social justice activist Billie Jean King walked the red carpet with Emma Stone, as she is the character Emma played in Battle Of The Sexes. Emma Watson was accompanied by Marai Larasi, director of a black feminists organization and co-chair of the End Violence Against Women Coalition.
