Actress Blanca Blanco and model Barbara Meier were among the women who opted to wear color at Sunday night’s (07Jan18) Golden Globe Awards.

While nearly all of the actresses walking the red carpet in Beverly Hills at 75th annual prize-giving ceremony, including award winners Nicole Kidman, Saoirse Ronan and Allison Janney, chose to wear black in support of Hollywood’s newly-established anti-sexual harassment movement, Time’s Up, there were a few exceptions.

Fake News actress Blanca decided red was best for the big night, and donned a one-sleeved red velvet dress which featured a thigh high split and cut out detailing across the chest.

German fashion star Barbara, who Heidi Klum crowned the winner of Germany’s Next Top Model in 2007, also shunned the unofficial black dress code, and chose a pretty floral gown.

Taking to her Instagram account to explain her decision, the flame-haired model told her followers: “A lot of women will wear black tonight to support the time‘s up movement! I think this is a great and extremely important initiative!

Viele Frauen werden heute im Zuge der Time‘s Up Bewegung auf dem Roten Teppich schwarz tragen. Ich finde diese Initiative im Allgemeinen super und extrem wichtig. Trotzdem habe ich mich entscheiden, heute ein buntes Kleid zu tragen. Wenn wir wollen, dass heute die Golden Globes der starken Frauen sind, die für ihre Rechte kämpfen, ist es in meinen Augen der falsche Weg, sich nicht mehr körperbetont anzuziehen und uns die Freude am Ausdruck unserer Persönlichkeit durch Mode zu nehmen. Wir haben uns diese Freiheit lange erkämpft, dass wir tragen können, was wir möchten und es auch in Ordnung ist, sich sexy zu kleiden. Wenn wir das einschränken, weil sich einige Männer nicht unter Kontrolle haben, ist das in meinen Augen ein Rückschritt. Wir sollten nicht schwarz tragen müssen, um ernstgenommen zu werden. Wir Frauen sollten strahlen, farbenfroh sein und funkeln. So wie es in unserer Natur liegt! Das symbolisiert in meinen Augen unsere Freiheit und neue Stärke. Um das aber dennoch nochmal klar zu sagen: Viele schreckliche Dinge sind passiert und dürfen sich nie wieder wiederholen! Und wir sollten das immer wieder und direkt ansprechen und aufklären! Ich freue mich auf starke und inspirierende Reden heute Abend! (c) @gettyentertainment — A lot of women will wear black tonight to support the time‘s up movement! I think this is a great and extremely important initiative! Nevertheless I decided to wear a colorful dress tonight. If we want this to be the Golden globes of the strong women who stand up for their rights, I think, it’s the wrong way not to wear any sexy clothes anymore or let people take away our joy of showing our personality through fashion. We were fighting a long time for the freedom to wear what we want to and that it is also ok, to dress up a little more sexy. If we now restrict this, because some men can’t control themselves, this is a huge step back in my opinion. We should not have to wear black to be taken serious. US women should shine, be colorful and sparkle. Just like it is our nature. In my opinion this symbolizes our freedom and our new strength. But to make clear: A lot of bad things happened and should never happen again!!!

She added that women have fought for a long time for the freedom to wear what they want, and if this now gets restricted “because some men can’t control themselves, this is a huge step back”.

“We should not have to wear black to be taken serious. US women should shine, be colorful and sparkle. Just like it is our nature. In my opinion this symbolizes our freedom and our new strength,” she continued.

“But to make clear: A lot of bad things happened and should never happen again!!!”

Meher Tatna, the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, went for a colorful creation as well, though A-listers like Meryl Streep, Emma Stone and Jessica Chastain made a stand and selected black gowns.
