The 75th Golden Globes anniversary was going to be a big event, and wow did it deliver. With the #TimesUp movement bound to make a ripple in the proceedings, the much anticipated night was a first for everyone attending and further viewing from the comfort of their own homes.The TimesUp movement supports all women, all across the country, in all fields, who had experienced harassment, discrimination or abuse. Basically, the campaign created by a wonderful collation of celebrities was going to be the highlight of the night, not taking precedent but definitely changing the course of future award ceremonies. And this all took place on the 7th of this January, on a Sunday night, with the red carpet filled with a sea of black the epitome of a silent, yet fierce demonstration- with black being the ceremonious colour for the TimesUp campaign. Many suits, were also branded with the badge of TimesUp, in condolence with the movement to support women, and yeah it was pretty unique.

So let’s go through the best looks from the evening and further commemorate monumental moments that occurred on that very night.

Viola Davis decided to go with a natural hairstyle, adorned with lavish jewellery and in a Brandon Maxwell dress. Wearing her Stuart Weitzman shoes with Tyler Ellis bag, she killed it.

Though the highlight of the night, was the Cecil B. De Mille Award, which this year was awarded to the woman we all know and love, Oprah Winfrey. Her speech was filled with emotion, power and a force for change. Say no more, the link is below!
