Irish stars Saoirse Ronan and Caitriona Balfe are donating their black Golden Globes dresses to an auction that will benefit the Time’s Up Legal Defence Fund.
Time’s Up, which aims to fight sexual harassment and inequality in the workplace, is partnering with Condé Nast and eBay for the special auction.
The Irish actresses are among a number of stars who are donating their Golden Globes gowns, joining major Hollywood stars including Meryl Streep, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and Emma Watson.
The majority of celebrities at the Golden Globes chose to wear black in a show of solidarity with the Time’s Up campaign.
Tuxedos worn by actors including Jude Law, Hugh Jackman, and Neil Patrick Harris will also be up for auction.
In a press release, artistic director of Condé Nast and editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine Anna Wintour said, “At Condé Nast, we’ve always believed in the importance of swift action to support meaningful social change.”
“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.”
