Who will take a stand on the red carpet?
While I was living under a rock last month, amidst all the holiday pressure set on by multiple fashion projects, I had heard through the grapevine from a couple fashion stylists that something of a protest would be taking place at the special 2018 75th Golden Globe Awards. So then, what exactly is expected to take place?
Now, usually spotting a black gown at these widely streamed events is something of a tradition. Eeryone knows that black cuts you in all the right places, obviously. But where as black originally gained its popularity through mourning of a loved one in the Victorian age, to the goth and punk scene of the later half of this century, all the way to the coined New York fashion assistant attire of today- black is worn to make a statement. And as many already know, it takes a very complicated person the favor the shade.
But if you weren’t aware by now, actors and actresses can be very complex and complicated people. And though that may be true to an extent, there is nothing at all complicated about taking a stance for equal pay within the industry -within all industries.
