It’s unheard of to say that every single dress at an award ceremony red carpet will go down in history, but that’s what happened at the Golden Globes 2018, as everyone who graced the red carpet wore black in solidarity with the Time’s Up initiative to combat systemic sexual harassment, abuse and discrimination across all industries. The Time’s Up #WhyWeWearBlack movement launched at the beginning of the year when more than 300 women who work in film, television and theatre signing an open letter of solidarity in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal. They called on Hollywood to
After a few questionable themes, do you remember the year of punk? The Met Gala 2016 displayed a high-tech vibe for this year’s exhibition, ‘Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology’, and if I’m honest it produced more misses than hits as designers fell a little short when they were thinking fashion and technology, which doesn’t just mean robots and space-age, so as you can probably guess there was a lot of silver.

I have been pretty disappointed with the award season so far, well that was until I saw this incredible look from Jennifer Lawrence, looking stunning in a custom Prada gown to the 26th Annual Producers Guild Of America Awards in Los Angeles.
