You’ll Be Seeing A Lot Of These ‘Time’s Up’ Pins At The Golden Globes

Published

on

There’s one accessory nearly everyone will be wearing this Sunday night at the Golden Globes.

Nominees and presenters will be among those wearing a small black and white pin that reads “Time’s Up” as part of the recent initiative to fight sexual harassment and inequality. According to The Hollywood Reporter, actress and co-founder of the Time’s Up initiative Reese Witherspoon tapped costume designer and stylist Arianne Phillips to create the pin for the awards show.

Phillips told The Hollywood Reporter that the idea for the pins happened at an initial brainstorm meeting about the Time’s Up initiative in December with actresses, producers and others in the industry.

“Reese asked me to come to the actors’ group, and told me they were going to be wearing black and would I consider creating a pin for the nominees and male presenters,” Phillips told The Hollywood Reporter. “We were up against the holidays, but I said I could do it.”

Phillips, along with other Hollywood stylists including Los Angeles jewelry designer Michael Schmidt, designed the Time’s Up logo and created 500 pins in just two weeks.

“I met so many great women, and it was such an honor to be called to action,” Phillips added.

The Time’s Up initiative was announced on New Year’s Day and consists of more than 300 women in television, film and theater. The project, inspired by the recent #MeToo movement, hopes to combat sexual misconduct in all workplaces by creating a legal defense fund to help less-privileged women come forward with their stories.

Witherspoon will walk the red carpet on Sunday with fellow Time’s Up actress Eva Longoria in support of the movement, E! News reported Thursday.

Kerry Washington, Shonda Rhimes, America Ferrera and Ashley Judd are among the other big stars involved in the powerful initiative. In a Jan. 1 New York Times article about the new initiative, Witherspoon explained why Time’s Up is so important.

“We have been siloed off from each other,” Witherspoon said. “We’re finally hearing each other, and seeing each other, and now locking arms in solidarity with each other, and in solidarity for every woman who doesn’t feel seen, to be finally heard.”

Published

on

That belt loop hip shake from 1978’s Grease has surely been replicated countless times in schools, dances, and in front of mirrors.

Wednesday marked 40 years since the film premiered in New York City, and John Travolta just so happened to be on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, although to promote his upcoming film Gotti.

The shake, which Travolta calls the “four corners,” was introduced when Grease’s choreographer needed a step at the end of “You’re The One That I Want.”

Turns out Travolta still has some of those moves, by the way.

“Alicia Silverstone and Donald Trump exchanged numbers about 10 years ago. But, before you jump to conclusions, you need to hear the full account of what happened.

On The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, the Clueless star said that she and Trump had a “date to talk about solar panels” and that his name and number are still in her phone to this very day.

So, what exactly happened? “I was on one of the other talk shows in the daytime talking about solar panels and silk milk… and he [Trump] said he was really interested and we exchanged numbers so that we could continue this conversation about solar panels,” she said. “So I met with him.”

Silverstone said….”

Serena Williams is already a superhero to each and every one of us. But, as it turns out, she also has a Black Panther-inspired catsuit which makes her feel like a “warrior princess”.

After Williams beat Kristya Pliskova at the French open at Stade Roland Garros, Paris on Tuesday, she spoke about the meaning behind her black bodysuit.

“It feels like this suit represents all the women that have been through a lot mentally, physically, with their body to come back and have confidence and to believe in themselves,” she said following her victory on Tuesday, per the Guardian.

Williams just made her return to the sport nine months after the birth of her daughter. She suffered complications at the time of the birth due to a pulmonary embolism.

In addition to being a symbol of confidence and empowerment, the suit also reminds Williams of Black Panther.

“I call it, like, my Wakanda-inspired catsuit,” Williams said. “We designed it way before the movie, but still, it kind of reminds me of that.”

“I always wanted to be a superhero and it’s kind of my way of being a superhero,” she said.

Wakanda forever.
