The summer of 1997: Fashion designer Gianni Versace wakes up in his Miami Beach mansion, wearing pajama bottoms decorated with his own logo. He slips into a hot-pink robe, then steps out onto the balcony to admire the morning sun over the ocean waves. He strolls through his gilded palace, greeting the servants who are already standing at attention in their places. Versace plucks a glass of orange juice from a silver tray as he lounges to have breakfast – alone – by his pool. Meanwhile, a psychopathic serial killer sits on the beach,

How Women at the 2018 Golden Globes Reinvented Glamour for a Cause

How Women at the 2018 Golden Globes Reinvented Glamour for a Cause
Fashion had a moment that will forever go down in history at the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

With the exception of just a few stars, almost every actress who hit the red carpet at The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles on Sunday was dressed in black, as part of the "Time's Up" blackout, protesting gender inequality and sexual harassment that has long plagued Hollywood.

The red carpet is normally a place where celebrities are put on a pedestal. We marvel over who they're wearing, who had the best (and worst!) head-to-toe looks. But this year, it was about something more.
