It's the moment both movie buffs and fashionistas alike have been waiting for all awards season — the 2018 Oscars have finally arrived. And while it is technically the film industry's biggest night, it is also equally as huge of an evening for fashion — after all, the nominees and attendees have been planning their ensembles for weeks (perhaps even months) leading up to this momentous event, with the help of fashion's most sought-after designers and stylists. But it is no longer just about looking pretty in a dress or tuxedo for most of the celebrities in attendance tonight — there's more thought and meaning behind their chosen outfits.
Over the past few months, red carpets have been a place to make a statement. It all began at the Golden Globes in January when a majority of the attendees at the ceremony wore all black to stand against sexism, gender inequality, and sexual violence in the entertainment industry. In addition, celebrities wore "Time's Up" pins on their clothing, an accessory that people have continued to wear throughout awards season. At the Grammys in February, musicians chose to wear white roses to support the movement.
According to The New York Times, the campaign leaders for "Time's Up" have not asked attendees at tonight's Oscars to wear all black, but you can expect to see celebs donning another pin — an orange American Flag to raise awareness about gun safety in support of Everytown. It's almost certain celebrities will express their support for all of these important causes, whether it's wearing a pin or speaking about the different issues in their red carpet interviews.
