Celebrities are auctioning the black dresses they wore to the 2018 Golden Globes in support of the Time’s Up movement. 

This year’s Golden Globes stuck out as one of the most influential award ceremonies in history. It was used as a platform, not just to celebrate achievements within the film industry, but primarily as a stage for nearly all female attendees to show their support of the Time’s Up movement.

The women of Hollywood powerfully conveyed the message that women will no longer be silenced through snippet interviews on the red carpet, wry nomination introductions à la Natalie Portman and galvanising acceptance speeches like Oprah Winfrey. But the most recognisable show of solidarity between those attending the awards was the communal black dress code.

Now that the ceremony has been and gone, designers and celebrities such as Elizabeth Moss, Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie and Gal Gadot are auctioning the designer gowns worn on the night to further support the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund.

Condé Nast and eBay have teamed up to run the auction which consists of 34 dresses and five suits from male attendees including Hugh Jackman and Jude Law.

A statement from eBay reads: “All funds raised from this auction will benefit the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund, which helps individuals who face workplace sexual harassment connect with legal representation and public relations assistance.

“The all-black outfits and Time’s Up pins represent solidarity and support for survivors of sexual harassment and assault and were worn to raise awareness for safety and equity in the workplace at the historic 2018 Golden Globes.”

Both Greta Gerwig and Saoirse Ronan’s dresses will be up for auction 

For those who plan on bidding, you can sign up to the reminder email which will direct you to the auction ready for the 5pm (12pm ET) start on 19 January.

If the bids exceed your budget, you can buy a raffle ticket for just £18 for a chance to win selected dresses worn by A-listers such as Mandy Moore, Claire Foy and Madeline Brewer.

Anna Wintour, Artistic Director of Condé Nast said of the auction: “Through this auction powered by eBay, 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.”

Not only is this a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a tangible part of a historical moment, but it’s also a chance to donate to a very important cause.
