Celebrity News: Black Dresses At Golden Globes Help Highlight Fine Jewelry |  January 10, 2018 (0 comments)


Beverly Hills, CA—Sunday night’s 75th Annual Golden Globes Awards was one for the history books. The evening—the first large film-industry gathering since the sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein unleashed a tsunami—pulsed with energy as all the female celebrities wore black in support of the newly launched Times Up movement, an action plan to address the systemic sexual harassment and gender and pay inequalities in Hollywood and elsewhere.

Driven by outrage and pent-up resentment, 300 prominent women in the film industry—actresses, agents, writers, producers, directors, and more—banded together to create an ambitious initiative to fight gender harassment, both in Hollywood and beyond to women in all walks of life. It includes a $13 million (so far) legal defense fund raised through donations to help blue-collar workers and other less privileged women protect themselves from both harassment and retaliation after reporting it. The initiative also includes gaining legislation to penalize companies that tolerate persistent harassment and to discourage the use of nondisclosure agreements to silence victims, and more.   

Actresses and presenters alike dressed in black and spoke out about the movement at the Globes. It made a powerful social statement, and inadvertently helped highlight the beautiful diamonds and gems of the jewelry worn that evening. Many celebrities--men and women alike--added the stark black and white "Time's Up" pin to their ensembles.

Actress Chrissy Metz (This Is Us) and actor James Franco were just two of many celebrities who wore a "Time's Up" pin to the Golden Globe Awards. Metz's is on the bow of her dress near her left shoulder; Franco's is on his lapel.

Key jewelry trends for the evening included long necklaces (typically filling in the bare expanse of a plunging neckline) and lots of diamond/emerald combinations with and without sapphires.

Issa Rae, left, and Zoe Saldana, right, wore emeralds with their black dresses. Saldana was one of many actresses to fill in a bare expanse of skin with a long pendant necklace.
