Golden Globe Dresses and Tuxedos Will Be Auctioned Off To Help Time’s Up Initiative – Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Condé Nast and eBay announced today that celebrities who attended the 2018 Golden Globes will be donating their statement black dresses to help fund the Hollywood-promoted anti-harassment Time's Up initiative. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Every penny received will go towards Time's Up’s legal defense fund, which helps with providing legal and public relations assistance to victims of sexual misconduct in work environments. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "At Condé Nast, we've always believed in the importance of swift action to support meaningful social change," Anna Wintour, Condé Nast's artistic director, and Vogue's editor-in-chief said in a press release about the auction. "Through this auction powered by eBay, and harnessing the compelling pull of both fashion and activism, we're hopeful that the black dresses worn at this year's historic Golden Globe Awards will raise funds for the TIME’S UP initiative, and serve to support the stories and voices of those who have been victims of sexual misconduct." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The dresses designed for #ReeseWitherspoon, #MerylStreep, #ElisabethMoss, #TraceeEllisRoss, #EmmaWatson, #JudeLaw and more were all donated and will be included in the initiative. Three of the dresses will be sold through a “sweepstakes model,” allowing eBay users the opportunity to donate $25 or more to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund for a chance to win a dress of their choice. Celebrity men who attended the Globes will also contribute their tuxedos; 34 in total. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The eBay auction will begin on Friday at 9 a.m. PST, or 12 p.m. EST, and continue through next Friday.
