Earlier this month on the Golden Globes red carpet, the conversation swirled around Time’s Up, the sexual harassment prevention initiative introduced by Hollywood heavy-hitters like Shonda Rhimes, Reese Witherspoon, Emma Stone, and America Ferrera. It appears that Hollywood isn’t done using the black dress protest to address sexual misconduct and gender inequality.
As per reports, thirty-nine black dresses and tuxedos worn at this year's Golden Globes will be going up for auction and all the proceeds will benefit the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund, which helps people combat sexual harassment and gender inequality.
American Mass Media Company Conde Nast is partnering with Time's Up and eBay to auction dresses worn by celebrities at the 2018 Golden Globes, reports E! Online.
From January 19 to 26, shoppers can visit ebay.com/timesup to bid on gowns worn by Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Meryl Streep, Gal Gadot, Elizabeth Moss, Emma Watson, Viola Davis, Salma Hayek and more.
People can also bid on the tuxedos worn by Jude Law, Neil Patrick Harris, Hugh Jackman and Daniel Kaluuya.
All the dresses are being donated by the fashion designers who created them, including Giorgio Armani, Prabal Gurung and Brandon Maxwell.
Anna Wintour, artistic director of Conde Nast and editor-in-chief of Vogue, said, "At Conde Nast, we've always believed in the importance of swift action to support meaningful social change."
"Through this auction powered by eBay, and harnessing the compelling pull of both fashion and activism, we're hopeful that the black dresses worn at this year's historic Golden Globe Awards will raise funds for the Time's Up initiative, and serve to support the stories and voices of those who have been victims of sexual misconduct," she added.
Many celebrities wore black to the Golden Globes as a symbol of solidarity and to raise awareness for the Time's Up movement.
