Women At Last Night’s Golden Globes Proved Just How Political Fashion Can Get

Last night, fashion got political in an empowering way. The Golden Globe Awards have traditionally been known as a place to celebrate stars, fawn over the beautiful dresses, and rip art the not-so flattering ones. This year, however, the red carpet featured a parade of black gowns that heralded the battle against sexual harassment and gender inequality overtaking the country. In a show of solidarity for the Time’s Up initiative, female (and some male) attendees wore all black to the ceremony.

In fact, the E! channel, embroiled in their own controversy, chose to not ask actresses who they are wearing, but rather why they are wearing black. Their compelling responses that sent messages of unity and empowerment were what really made history.

Mariah Carey stunned with her call for gender parity and a sheer black fluted gown.

After NBC’s Al Roker mistakenly congratulated the singer for racking up statuettes, Carey schooled him on how the gender gap had actually made that impossible. In fact, the first-time Golden Globe nominee, nominated in the songwriting category, assured Roker that female songwriters are often passed over for opportunities to write music for film and left out of these awards celebrations.

“Many times men forget that women also write songs and I’m really excited about it because of that,” Carey corrected. Her vintage Dolce & Gabbana dress flashed a bold message of protest in support of the Time’s Up initiative that was sparked by Me Too.

Salma Hayek hit high notes in Balenciaga and a speech that addressed rape victims.

Hayek, who recently wrote a powerful New York Times op-ed about Harvey Weinstein, united the award show’s audience by leading a battle cry for Time’s Up after introducing a clip of the movie “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”

America Ferrera shimmered in Christian Siriano and shed light on sexual misconduct.

“It’s so incredible to look around and see everyone in solidarity, ready to really address the issues that exist in our industry and across all industries,” Ferrera said in an interview on the red carpet. “It’s our job — right now, the time is now — for us to do the work that will make women and all people more safe and more equal in their workplaces and in their lives.”

Rosa Clemente out shined and raised up the sisterhood.

Activist Rosa Clemente attended the awards ceremony with Susan Sarandon as her date. “Our sisterhood is strong. It’s always been strong. Now we need men to be allies and accomplices in smashing sexual violence,” Clemente told Access. “It can’t just be because you have a daughter or mother. It has to be because we are human beings that deserve the right to dignity, whether we’re working on a Hollywood set or working at Kentucky Fried Chicken.”

Eva Longoria Bastón looked sharp in a high slit and dicing of a misnomer.

Longoria Bastón was quick to school Today Show host Carson Daly on the power of the Me Too after hearing him call the movement a “moment.” It’s a label she resisted because of its indication that the movement was only slight in impact and temporary. “This is not a moment. This is a movement, and tonight is just one small part of that,” Longoria Bastón said.

Now listen, I love seeing a killer dress on the red carpet. But hands down, the most impactful part of last night was hearing the outspoken advocacy take place throughout the event. THAT was true gold.

And in case you missed these big moments, say it with me!

This Quietly Posted IMDB Page Could Mean ‘Coco 2’


This Quietly Posted IMDB Page Could Mean ‘Coco 2’

To say our worlds were rocked when Pixar finally gave us a touching film about la cultura a few years ago would be the biggest understatement of the century. ‘Coco,’ the 2017 American 3D computer-animated fantasy starring Gael García Bernal and Benjamin Bratt filled our hearts and also brought us to tears. Still, as satisfying as the film was, there’s no doubt it left us craving more. And it looks like we might just get it.

An IMDB page for Coco 2 has been created and I’m sorry but I can’t stop freaking out!!

According to IMDB user anthandsoc-95189 who appears to have long had the inside scoop on upcoming films, ‘Coco 2: Return To the Land Of the Living’ is in the works! Some digging around has also revealed that another sight might have information on the plot and characters of the sequel film. Of course, this information has yet to be confirmed and might be purely a wish, but if it is we’ll dream big!

According to IMDB ‘Coco 2’ will take place 6 years after the first film

The IMDB page says “It’s been 6 years since the events happened for Miguel. But when Hector, Imelda, and his great grand-abuelos need Miguel’s help to come back to the Land of the Living because some mysterious sinister masked skeleton is haunting and rules their world with an iron fist and sword and hates music.”

Which means, if IMDB is correct, we haven’t seen the last of Mama Coco!

Sweet Coco could have a really big role in the new film!!

Of course, other sites have other insights into the could-be sequel…

Because of course everyone has an opinion!

According to Fandom.com ‘Coco 2’ will take place six years after the first film.

We’ll see Miguel’s family attempt to throw him a fiesta, but sadly Miguel, still upset about Mama Coco’s death, will be upset.

When Miguel meets a sophisticated, ghostly and well-bred skeletal spirit Miguel will attempt to return to The Land Of The Dead for a vacation.

Now that’s an insane idea for a spring break.

In this version of the sequel, Miguel will a dark black hole to go back to The Land Of The Dead, to see Papa Hector and Mamma Imelda.

Of course, Miguel will be astonished when he sees his old family members for another time and finally gets to see Mama Coco.

Soon enough, Miguel is racing against time, once again, to avoid being a skeleton.

But this time, Marcel might not be so bothered by the idea of living amongst the dead for forever.

Of course, all of this is speculative. Who knows if Pixar has plans for a sequel in the works, but as one fan points out this clip by Pixar on the DVD release has some great hints!


Fingers crossed!

Stay grateful you did not grow up in the era of Snapchat/ Instagram/ Facebook kids because you can delete but your recorded actions can still come back to bite. Cardi B knows the story. While the Afro-Latina queen of Trap isn’ making any apologies, the latest video to be dug up from her past is requiring her to give some answers.

The video, which was recorded during an Instagram live broadcast, sees Cardi as she goes on a tearful verbal tirade about her past. This after, someone apparently questioned her success and accused her of not “putting in no fucking work.”

“I had to go ‘oh yeah, you wanna fuck me? Yeah yeah yeah let’s go to this hotel.’ And then I’d drug [expletivie] up and I’d rob them. That’s what I used to do.”

Users online were quick to comment.

“The fact that cardi b admitted to drugging and robbing men she would take back to a hotel for sex blows my mind,” wrote Twitter user @itsangelaa. “That’s not ‘keeping it real.’ that’s a crime.”

“I wonder what woulda happened if it were the other way round,” @BTSisthecauseo5 commented.

At the onset of the backlash, the rapper seemed to take the comments rather lightly.

The following day she also tweeted “IM THAT BITCH THEY LOVE TO HATE, IM THAT BITCH THEY HATE TO LOVE and I love it.”

On Tuesday, however, after users on Instagram and Twitter continued to simmer, she was forced to issue comment.


In a post to her Instagram, the rapper responded to the comments about the video by saying: “I’m a part of a hip hop culture where you can talk about where you come from talk about the wrong things you had to do to get where you are.”
