This year’s Golden Globe awards were more somber than usual, with most attendees wearing black in solidarity with women who have been sexually harassed and/or assaulted in the workplace and in honor of the movement encouraging women to speak up. So, fashion-wise, there wasn’t as much diversity as usual, but there were some celebrity moms who still managed to bring the glam to the red carpet in their black attire (bonus: black is good for camouflaging any dirt the little ones may have wiped on their dresses during good-bye hugs, as little ones are wont to do).
Kerry Washington, mom to one-year-old son Caleb and three-year-old daughter Isabelle, not only dazzled in a glittery black dress, but also used the opportunity to discuss why the actresses behind the Time’s Up movement chose to make a statement at the ceremony rather than abstaining, saying: “The reason we’re here and didn’t just stay home is because we feel we shouldn’t have sit out the night, give up our seats at the table, our voice in this industry because of bad behavior that wasn’t ours.”
Winner Nicole Kidman’s — mom of Sunday, 9, Faith, 7, and her two children with Tom Cruise, Connor and Isabella — delicate black dress belied the force of her speech in which she raised the topic of abuse and lauded “the power of women.”
Wow. Kate Hudson, mom to Ryder, 14, and Bingham, 6, shows off her… necklace… in this sexy Valentino number.
Nominee Jessica Biel is mom to two-year-old Silias (apparently, the dad is some singer or something) and also the best-dressed, according to my eight-year-old daughter. Congrats, Jessica! That’s the only award that mattered tonight, really.
Viola Davis, mom to six-year-old daughter Genesis, kicked it up a notch by accenting her sleek Brandon Maxwell dress with her glorious natural hair. On this night when sexual assault survivors were being recognized, she noted: “There’s no prerequisites to worthiness. You’re born being worthy. And I think that’s a message that a lot of women need to hear: The women who are still in silence because of trauma, because of shame due to assault, they need to understand it’s not their fault.”
YES to all of this, yes.
Clad in Dolce & Gabbana, Sarah Jessica Parker (mom to son James, 15, and twins Marion and Tabitha, 8) has a Carrie Bradshaw crossover moment.
Angelina Jolie not only brought the glam to the red carpet with her dramatic sleeves, but she also brought 14-year-old son Pax, looking dapper in a suit accessorized with a Time’s Up pin.
