Forget sequin dresses and strategic cutouts: the biggest red carpet trend at the 2018 Golden Globes was social justice.

Stars as major as Nicole Kidman, Kerry Washington, and Emma Watson used their fashion know-how to make a political statement by simply wearing black in protest of sexual harassment in Hollywood.
