As seen at the recent Golden Globes and Grammy Awards, most stars like Angelina Jolie turned up in black to raise their voice against the sexual harassment prevalent in the industry following the Harvey Weinstein scandal. Angelina ruled the red carpet in a high-slit off-shoulder velvet gown.
Jennnifer Lawrence looked royal in a strapless black number. She was also one of the first presenters of the awards at the event.
Salma Hayek was dressed in a stylish floral gown for the do and made one of the awards’ highlights by saying how she was on the stage for ‘celebrating men’ and announcing Frances McDormand deliberately as the winner of the Best male actor before saying it was a joke.
Not just the women, even the men supported the movement, Hugh Grant being one of them as he poses with producer Anna Eberstein on the red carpet.
Britain's Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, seven months pregnant, however, chose a deep green cap-sleeved gown for the occasion arriving with Prince William, Duke of Cambridge.

The film also won original screenplay and outstanding British film, while Frances McDormand bagged best actress and Sam Rockwell best supporting actor prizes.
Veteran Gary Oldman won the Best Actor award for his role as Winston Churchill in 'Darkest Hour'. The role has so far won him a Golden Globe, a Bafta and the chance of an Oscar on March 4.
