Three months after Hollywood's biggest names were rocked with accusations of sexual harrasment amid the Harvey Weinstein scandal, Latina celebs took a stand by wearing all-black at this year's Golden Globes.
America Ferrera, Eva Longoria, and Penelope Cruz were among the powerful women in entertaiment who opted for a monochromatic ensemble as part of the #TIMESUP movement. The movement is "a unified call for change from women in entertainment for women everywhere."
Salma Hayak showed her fans she commited to wearing black at the award show by posting a video strutting down the hall alongside, Ashley Judd. "With my date @ashley_juddheading to the #GoldenGlobes , as usual we are kind of tardy, even though #TimesUp," the 51-year-old wrote.
Hours before the award show, the hashtag #whywewearblack began trending in effort to explain the fashion choice. Longoria, who rocked her sweet baby bump in a custom Genny gown on the red carpet, took to social media to encourage others to join the movement and wear black.
"Today, we invite people across the globe to come together and wear black, speak out over social media and donate whatever they can to the TIME'S UP Legal Defense Fund. Post your pics, videos, stories with the hashtag #TIMESUP and #WHYWEWEARBLACK. Show your solidarity with people of all industries and say #TIMESUp for the imbalance of power," the soon-to-be mom captioned the photo.
Actress Rosario Dawson also took to Instagram to share a video explaining why she intended to wear black at the award show. "It's time to celebrate each other -- not just the nominees on our film and television screens but our storytellers who have bravely come forward and courageously shared their stories and liberated so many of us, too," the Puerto Rican-Cuban beauty said.
Earlier this month, actresses in Hollywood pledged their solidarity to the anti-harrasment action plan in a full-page letter that appeared on the front page of the New York Times.
