“I wear black today as a “we” not as an “I”, as a celebration of our collective power as women, as an embodiment of sisterhood, solidarity and the work being done to create structural change. We wear black for equity, parity and inclusion across all industries,” said Ellis Ross, who sported a black Marc Jacobs halter dress worn over black jogger pants. “We wear black to join with the voices of ALL women, particularly women of color, LGBTQX women, disabled women and all other women who have been disproportionately affected by sexual violence. TIMES UP on discrimination, harassment and abuse.”
Ellis Ross paired the look with a powerful red lip and a satin black Marc Jacobs turban, which her hairstylist Marcia Hamilton tells PeopleStyle is “in support of the movement!! #timeisup #whywewearblack.”
