Many actresses and actor) wore all-black outfits to the Golden Globes to show support for Time's Up. Will they follow the same dress code for the SAG Awards? We have all the details
At the 2018 Golden Globes stars teamed together for an unprecedented red carpet experience. Many actresses (and actors) supported the Time’s Up initiative by wearing black outfits to make a statement against sexual harassment in the entertainment industry and beyond. But will the all-black trend continue at the SAG Awards this weekend? According to stylist sources, no; though you may see stars in black just because it’s timeless and chic, the red carpet blackout was limited to the Golden Globes to kick off the Time’s Up movement in style.

Over 300 prominent forces in the entertainment industry, including Reese Witherspoon and Eva Longoria, joined together to form the Time’s Up initiative to help fight systemic sexual harassment and workplace inequality. Among the many ways they set about making a change in the industry is by urging attendees to wear black at the Golden Globes to send a united message.
“This is not a moment, it’s a movement,” Longoria, Witherspoon’s date for the evening, said on the red carpet at the Golden Globes. “Tonight is just one small part of that.”
Stylists appear to be ready to celebrate color for awards shows going forward. The Critics’ Choice Awards had a red carpet that was packed with prints, color and embellishment, and stylists including Christina Erlich (who dresses Alison Brie and Greta Gerwig, among others) have given glimpses of the rainbow of colors we might expect at the SAG Awards.

In addition to their style statement and empowering messages, Time’s Up also created a Legal Defense Fund, which has raised over $16 million to provide legal support to women and men who have experienced harassment, assault or abuse in the workplace.
To show your support of the initiative, you can buy the Time’s Up pin, T-Shirts, baby onesies, totes, notebooks and stickers at the Time’s Up shop and wear your merch while you cheer on the stars at the SAG Awards. (Alternatively, you could bid on one of the gowns worn on the red carpet at the Golden Globes – the proceeds will also benefit Time’s Up.)
The 24th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards are broadcast live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on both TNT and TBS starting at 8 p.m. ET.
