The sun has set on this year's Golden Globes but it is an award ceremony we will be talking about for years to come. The 75th annual Golden Globes was the microphone for a different kind of initiative this year, it was a moment in time where Hollywood not only stood up for itself but for women (and men) around the world who have fallen victim to sexual assault and harassment. 

Once a sea of color, the red carpet this year was a statement of black dresses (and suits) from wall to wall. The lack of color was accompanied by a simple pin on each lapel that read, "Times Up". 

Times up on the Harvey Weinsteins of the world. Time is up for sexual harassment and assault. Time is up on gender bias. This simple pin, although small means big things, and the pin itself is sold out. 

What do the names Kerry Washington, Oprah Winfrey, and Sara Jessica Parker all have in common? Not only are all of these women at the forefront of this initiative but they are also (along with the Me Too movement) raising money to help people pay their legal fees who have fallen victims to sexual harassment and assault. The program has already raised 15 million dollars. What an accomplishment! 

Although I may not be on board with what all of these ladies decided to wear to the award ceremony, I am definitely in love with what they stand for! With that being said I do what to talk about the fashion of the night! 

My best dressed of the evening goes to Kate Hudson in a stunning sheer Valentino gown that was void of rhinestones or sequins. The illusion netting was the perfect amount of "look at me" and sexiness for the red carpet. 

My worst dressed of the night, unfortunately, goes to a woman who is usually a style icon for me. She took a chance but it seemed to miss the mark this time around. Sara Jessica Parker in Dolce & Gabbana. Our very own Carrie from Sex in the City was channeling her inner style diva a little too hard Sunday night. 

Sara wore a tea length dress complete with a belt, and a flared skirt, and 4 different textures of fabric and sheer sleeves... do you see where I am going with this? It was just too many gimmicks on one dress. Again I LOVE what she is doing with the Times Up movement I just wish she would have done something a little more "classic" for this event. 

If you have an event coming up that has you wanting to channel your inner celeb this year, I have put together a list of black gowns that are sure to be showstoppers below!
