EGL was tuned in to the much anticipated 2018 Golden Globes. Don’t get us wrong we are always at the edge of our seats during red carpets but last night had so much meaning. #WHYWEWEARBLACK and #TIMESUP were two hashtags that ruled the night and is quickly taking over the mainstream media.
So what are these two hashtags? We think Kerry Washington explained it best:
#TIMESUP on the imbalance of power. Wondering #WhyWeWearBlack ?!?!?! Because we stand with YOU! We stand in solidarity. Together we can end harassment, discrimination and abuse. And create safety, inclusion, equity and parity! FOR ALL PEOPLE. ACROSS ALL INDUSTRIES. We are a women led campaign but we are standing for ALL marginalized people. STAND WITH US. Wear black today.
Hollywood showed up and showed out last night and gave a new meaning to ALL BLACK EVERYTHING! Here are some of our favorites:
Ava DuVernay kept it chic & classy in her in Armani Prive dress. We love the smokey eye and simple clutch.
Issa Rae definitely took a plunge in her in Prabal Gurung fit, barely there strap heels and perfect accessories!
Tracee Ellis Ross is by NO MEANS a stranger to smashing any and every red carpet. This time was no different. She rocked her Marc Jacobs frock to perfection.

Viola Davis could not be missed in this velvet Brandon Maxwell gown. She paired her fro with a layered necklace and we are LIVING for it! Who said an afro can’t be elegant?!?
Naomi Campbell is and will always be a supermodel and in true supermodel fashion she was drenched in Jean Paul Gaultier.
Mary J. Blige definitely wooed us in this Alberta Ferretti silver and black gown! This dress was a perfect choice!
Susan Kelechi Watson couldn’t be missed in this dope Monsoori jumpsuit . With a night full of gowns we adored seeing Susan in this one piece dazzler.
E! News correspondent Zuri Hall killed this lace ensemble from Bronx and Banco
Notable mention to the woman of the night! Oprah Winfrey definitely dazzled us in this Atelier Versace gown.
These are just a few of the actors that dominated last night’s red carpet. Let us know whose look you loved last night!
