This year’s Golden Globes saw pretty much every single man and woman wear black.Except Blanca Blanco.The vast majority of guests in attendance wore black in support of the #MeToo movement and its spiritual successor #TimesUp – because time is up for sexual harassment, sexual abuse and sexual discrimination in movies and TV.Blanco – who previously had a wardrobe malfunction at the Oscars 2017 – was one of just three people, all women, who turned up to the Globes wearing a colourful outfit.Speaking to Refinery29, Blanco explained why she chose to wear red, saying: “I love red.Wearing red does not means I am against #timesup movement.”I applaud and stand by the courageous actresses that continue to [break] the circle of abuse through their actions and their style choice.”It is one of many factors leading women to a safer place because of their status in the acting world.I am excited about the ‘Time’s UP’ movement because true change is long overdue.” Related: Golden Globes 2018 red carpet – Nearly ALL the stars wear black in an awards first because Time’s Up Hollywood Foreign Press President Meher Tatna also chose not to wear black, as did model and actress Barbara Meier.Tatna, a Mumbai-born journalist, told Entertainment Tonight: “My mom and I planned this together a couple of months ago, it is a cultural thing.”When you have a celebration, you don’t wear black.So she would be appalled if I were to [have] worn black.And so this is, for my mom.” S Mitra Kalita, who’s VP of programming at CNN, added on Twitter that “she [was] born in India where this red is our basic black”.A rare splash of color by @goldenglobes president Meher Tatna.Controversial but look at it this way: She’s born in India where this red IS our basic Tatna did however make her support for the #TimesUp movement clear by placing the organisation’s pin on her outfit.”The HFPA is 60 percent women, we’ll have our stories,” she added to ET.”We are also journalists, so anybody who expresses themselves, especially on this topic, we are in solidarity with.”I have my own experiences.What woman doesn’t?
