    Michelle Williams and Tarana Burke Many nominated actresses are accompanied at the Golden Globes Sunday by activists in the #MeToo movement. Tarana Burke created the Me Too movement years ago as a way of making clear how widespread violence again women is around the world. The hashtag recently swept social media in the days following reports of assaults and harassment by movie producer Harvey Weinstein and other powerful men in Hollywood, the tech world, the media, and other fields. But it was Burke who first coined the phrase that has become so resonant.

    Alexis Bledel It’s still early on the Golden Globes red carpet, but it looks as if some actresses are wearing predominantly black, coupled with white or another bit of color. Alexis Bledel, one of the stars of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” went this route, wearing a black cropped jumpsuit of sorts with a white bodice wrapped in a laurel of black leaves over one shoulder. She accessorized it with a sparkly sash at the waist.

    Tracee Ellis Ross Hollywood’s decision to focus on and support the women who’ve come forward about sexual harassment is at the heart of the Golden Globes ceremony Sunday. But from a (admittedly less important) fashion standpoint, the all-black wardrobe also drew attention to the sheer creativity that designers have always employed. Tracee Ellis Ross’s gown and headwrap was a stunning example. Her statement to InStyle before the awards -- “There’s something really extraordinary about a community of like-minded women who work toward change” -- wasn’t bad either.

    Issa Rae Real talk here: Is there anything that Issa Rae can’t do? The “Insecure” star is a writer, director, social media guru, producer -- and she managed to slay the red carpet in her spare time Sunday. Her black gown featured a plunging neckline, a thigh-high slit, frilly bits at the shoulders and a elegant cape -- for the superhero she is.

    Alison Brie The “Glow” star rocked a gorgeous strapless frock at the Globes Sunday night, but she made sure to point out the pants peeking out underneath the billowing gown. “Tonight is about women wearing the pants,” she said in an interview, “so I decided to literally wear the pants.” She topped the ensemble off with a glittering diamond necklace and black stiletto heels. It was all just a shade more glam than the spandex wrestling garb she’s known for on her Netflix comedy.

    Millie Bobby Brown It cannot be easy to be a 13-year-old actress on the red carpet. The cameras, the questions, the judgments -- the pressure weighs on adult actresses, let alone one still in middle school. But “Stranger Things” ’s Millie Bobby Brown made it look easy, donning a playful and architectural mini dress and sparkly heels. Even better, she and her fellow teens on the red carpet -- Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo, Sadie Sink among them -- seemed as if they were actually having fun.
