I know what you're thinking: don't most men wear black every year to the Golden Globes because it's a black-tie event where actors come in tuxedos? Now, celebrity stylist Ilaria Urbinati, who styles Johnson, Armie Hammer, Tom Hiddleston and others, confirms in an Instagram post that her clients will be following suit.
"Because everyone keeps asking me..." Last week, New York-based stylist Michael Fisher told The Hollywood Reporter that men wearing black to the Globes will be "an inevitable thing out of solidarity". "Safe to say this may not be the right time to choose to be the odd man out here... just sayin..."
"Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest", McGowan wrote in a now-deleted tweet. Further, many might easily conflate those making a statement on the red carpet and those just. wearing black. Men who really do want to show their support in any way they can.More news: Apple raises pay for Tim Cook, other top executives
Many have also critiqued that wearing a black tux allows men to assert their innocence as a perpetrator of harassment or abuse without doing any of the necessary work to reflect on their potential role in the problem.
Executives from The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which organizes the annual event, have announced that the Israeli actress will make her debut at the ceremony to help hand out the prestigious prizes, despite not receiving any nominations for her performance in hit movie Wonder Woman. At least they aren't giving Weinstein an Oscar, like they did for director Roman Polanski when he fled the country after raping a teenager over a decade ago.
This is all, of course, precautionary anxiety for the feelings we may feel on January 7 when we see how this Globes red carpet shakes out.
