It was a black affair for the leading ladies attending this year's Golden Globes. 

Many of those who attended the prestigious awards show, held at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday night, dressed in black to support women who have been victims of sexual abuse.

The initiative was backed by the Time's Up movement, which started on the first day of the new year.

The movement has created a legal defence fund, which has already raised over $13-million, to help women with low incomes fight their perpetrators in court.

Sexual harassment in Hollywood was thrust into the spotlight in 2017 when movie producer Harvey Weinstein was accused of using his power to take advantage of women.

Dozens of women, including celebrities, stepped forward to share their stories of sexual harassment, with many using the #MeToo hashtag to do so.

Natalie Portman, Eva Longoria, Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Biel, and many other stars encouraged their colleagues to wear black on the Golden Globes red carpet. 

While most of the female attendees wore black, several, including German model Barbara Meier and actress Bianca Blanco, did not.

“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," Barbara wrote on Instagram. 

She added that women should not need to wear black to be taken seriously.

"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."

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!

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!!!
