10 Celebrities who rocked the red carpet in black dress


This weekend will see the most famous women in Hollywood take to the Golden Globes red carpet for the first big event of 2018, with many of them set to wear black as a radical statement against gender and racial inequality. Many women in Hollywood and notable public figures launched the movement “Time’s Up!” to combat sexual harassment in the film industry and in the workplace. To show solidarity for the campaign, attendees of the upcoming Golden Globes will have an “all-black” dress code.

In anticipation of the fierce looks expected on Sunday, we take a look at some of the most standout all-black red carpet outfits from recent years.
