There Was An Actress Who Didn’t Wear All Black To The Golden Globes Last Night

2017 brought us the New York Times expose on Harvey Weinstein and his repeated bouts of sexual harassment on female actors. The disgraced film producer created a snowball effect where other abusers were exposed and revealed. Women (and men) became more confident and were willing to tell their own stories of sexual harassment.

So far, the likes of Kevin Spacey, Louis CK as well as Steven Seagal have all been accused of sexual harassment.

But while many actresses wore all black in solidarity with the ‘Me Too’ campaign, there was one actress who decided to wear an all red dress instead.

It was at the Golden Globes ceremony where actresses decided to wear all black at the award show in order to show their agreement with the multitude of sexual assault victims and other people who are a part of the ‘Me Too’ campaign.

Famous actresses such as Michelle Williams, Penelope Cruz, Mariah Carey and Angelina Jolie all wore black to support the campaign.

Eva Longoria, who also sported an all-black outfit, had this to say: ‘for years, we’ve sold these awards shows as women, with our gowns and colors and our beautiful faces and our glamour. This is a moment of solidarity, not a fashion moment.’


However, actress Blanca Blanco was one of a handful of women who did not wear black to the award ceremony last night.


Blanca decided to wear a stunning red dress for the red carpet alongside the Hollywood Foreign Press President, Meher Tatna, and also actress Barbara Meier.

It was during an interview with Refinery29 where Blanca explained her fashion choice. ‘I love red. Wearing red does not means I am against #timesup movement. I applaud and stand by the courageous actresses that continue to break the circle of abuse through their actions and their style choice.’


She continued: ‘It is one of many factors leading women to a safer place because of their status in the acting world. I am excited about the ‘Time’s UP’ movement because true change is long overdue.’


However, Rose McGowan, who has long been an advocate of women’s rights said that the all-black dress code did little to do anything tangible in regards to ending sexual misconduct. She wrote: ‘and not one of those fancy people wearing black, to honor our rapes, would have lifted a finger had it not been so.’
