Designers Are Auctioning Off This Year’s Black Golden Globes Outfits for Time’s Up
Here’s Your Chance to Own a Piece of Fashion History
We still have the rest of awards season ahead of us, but it’s safe to say that the 2018 Golden Globes will go down in history as an iconic cultural moment. Hollywood united in a show of support for victims of sexual abuse, assault and harassment by donning black on the red carpet, and these symbols of solidarity are now up for auction.
39 designers have donated their pieces to be auctioned off by Condé Nast and eBay for Charity with all proceeds going to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund, which provides victims of sexual assault with assistance and legal representation.
“At Condé Nast, we’ve always believed in the importance of swift action to support meaningful social change,” said Anna Wintour, artistic director of Condé Nast and editor-in-chief of Vogue. “Through this auction powered by eBay for Charity, and harnessing the compelling pull of both fashion and activism, we’re hopeful that the black dresses worn at this year’s historic Golden Globe Awards will raise funds for the Time’s Up initiative, and serve to support the stories and voices of those who have been victims of sexual misconduct.”
Items up for auction include Reese Witherspoon’s Zac Posen gown, Hugh Jackman’s Brioni and Jude Law’s Saint Laurent tuxedoes, Tracee Ellis Ross’s Marc Jacobs dress and turban, and Claire Foy’s Stella McCartney suit. Three outfits will also be sold via a “sweepstakes” model where people can donate $25 or more to the fund for a chance to win.
“We’re thrilled that actors and others in the entertainment industry are leading in this extraordinary way to end the scourge of workplace sexual harassment,” said Fatima Goss Graves, president and C.E.O. of the National Women’s Law Center, which administers the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund. “Each time they’ve stepped up they’ve inspired more attorneys to join the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund and more individuals to contribute.”
The auction begins Friday, January 19 at 12pm EST at ebay.com/timesup and will last through January 26.
