The Academy Awards mark the grand finale of what has been a highly politically-charged awards season thanks to the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements.
As Hollywood’s major players respond to the myriad sexual misconduct allegations sweeping through their industry, the red carpet has seen a seismic shift in cultural and sartorial significance.
However, while attendees were encouraged to come together in protest via all-black ensembles at the Golden Globes and the Baftas, no such dress code was issued at this year’s Oscars.
Instead, organisers advocated style autonomy while Time’s Up founders stood down in a bid to illustrate that the importance of the initiative transcends beyond the red carpet.
