Everyone else wore black to support the Time's Up movement.

This year, black dominated the Golden Globes red carpet for a very important reason, the Time’s Up initiative.

The majority of Hollywood’s leading ladies chose to wear black as a mark of solidarity in an effort to stand against gender inequality and sexual harassment in their industry.

This has been a major topic in recent months in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal and so, the awards ceremony was the ideal opportunity to make a stand.

However, actress Blanca Blanco chose to wear red and now, she’s explained why.

In a statement to Refinery 29, Blanca, explained her reasons for donning the crimson gown.

“I love red. Wearing red does not means I am against #timesup movement. I applaud and stand by the courageous actresses that continue to brake [sic] the circle of abuse through their actions and their style choice.

“It is one of many factors leading women to a safer place because of their status in the acting world. I am excited about the ‘Time’s UP’ movement because true change is long overdue.”

Blanca was not the only actress to wear red at the event with actress Barbara Meier and Hollywood Foreign Press President Meher Tatna choosing to wear different colours too.
