Often, women wear black to formal affairs and red carpets alike because it’s safe. Because it’s chic. Because it’s elegant. Because it’s slimming. In 2018, nearly all the stars chose to wear black to the Golden Globes because it’s empowering. Holla! Sending a message happened to set the stage for some seriously strong, chic fashion. Take Dakota Johnson in Gucci, add Diane Kruger in Prada, Issa Rae in Prabal Gurung, Zoe Kravits, and Nicole Kidman in Givenchy Haute Couture…and you have some of my favorite ladies in black at GG2018.
