The number one color that was worn on the red carpet was the color black to show the stars were in support of the Time’s Up movement, which is standing in solidarity with the victims of sexual assault and harassments.

“I am wearing black to thank and honor all of the brave whistleblowers who came forward, shared their stories of harassment, assault and discrimination. I’m wearing black to, to stand in solidarity with my sisters all over the globe and I’m here to celebrate the rollout of this incredible initiative Time’s Up,” Actress Debra Messing said. “We want diversity, we want intersectional gender parity, equal pay. I was so shocked to hear that E! doesn’t believe in paying their female co-hosts the same as their male co-hosts. I miss Cat Sadler. So we stand with her. That’s something that can change tomorrow you know, we want people to start having this conversation that women are just as valuable as men.”
