This political accessory was the most-worn item at the Golden Globes 

And it goes perfectly with a black dress...

As the first event of the packed awards season calendar, the Golden Globes has become a popular place to make a political protest over the years.

And 2018 it seems is no different.

In light of the sexual harassment and assault allegations to hit Hollywood in recent months, A-list actresses used their red carpet appearances at the Globes to stand together and send a clear message.

It was announced last month that actresses would be wearing black to the Golden Globes in protest, but on the night they went one step further, sporting a very important accessory.

You’ve probably heard of the Time’s Up campaign, a movement to end the mistreatment of women, spearheaded by high profile women from Reese Witherspoon to Blake Lively. It’s aim? To ‘address the systemic inequality and injustice in the workplace that have kept underrepresented groups from reaching their full potential.’

With over 300 celebrities involved in the creation of the Time’s Up Defence Fund, it’s no surprise that the initiative made its way to the Golden Globes red carpet, with celebrities sporting a pin to symbolise the movement.

Here we come!! And DAMN, my wife is hot! #TIMESUP #whywewearblack

The pin was designed by costume designer and stylist Arianne Phillips who upon the request of Time’s Up leader Reese Witherspoon, designed over 500 pins for A-listers to wear to the awards show.

‘It was such an honour to be called to action,’ the stylist told The Hollywood Reporter.

‘I can’t think of anything more appropriate than fashion brands who have built careers on the red carpet donating to the Time’s Up legal fund, because as we’ve learned in the last year, there’s nothing more powerful than how we spend our money. I will take notice of these brands and want to do business with them.’
