The red carpet at this year's Golden Globes was all about black. Stars left and right donned dark clothes as a nod to the movement against sexual harassment, particularly in Hollywood.

"It was a complete and utter blackout," says Michelle Dalton Tyree of Fashion Trends Daily. "It was sort of solidarity through style."

The entire event took on a more serious tone, too, with more substantive chats before the ceremony.

"Red carpet reporters got that message loud with entertainment outlets pivoting their coverage to ask 'Why are you wearing black?' instead of 'Who are you wearing?'" says Tyree.

The blackout may also set a trend throughout the rest of awards season and beyond.

"There’s been a fashion reckoning brewing on the red carpet for a while now, with a mandate to make coverage more meaningful," she says. "I think we will continue to see important social issues conveyed through fashion in one way or another at upcoming shows like the Oscars."
