Connie Britton was the only woman I saw who wore something with writing on it, except for the “Time’s Up” pins. She wore this Lingua Franca “Poverty is Sexist” sweater paired with a pleated skirt by Max Mara. This was definitely more casual than most of the gowns at the #WhyWeWearBlack Globes and I love it. Refinery 29 reports that this sweater was custom-made for Britton, that’s it’s available to the public, and that $100 from each sale goes to support the One Campaign, which works “to fight poverty and prevent diseases,” primarily in Africa. There’s also a “Time’s Up” sweater created by Lingua Franca, of which $100 goes to the Times Up legal defense fund. Of course these sweaters are not cheap. They retail for $380. I need to learn how to embroider. I can’t decide if Connie’s skirt is navy or light black, but either way I love this.

Octavia Spencer was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for The Shape of Water. She was in a delicately detailed sequin stripe gown by her go-to designer, Tadashi Shoji, to whom she’s usually loyal. (I’m pretty sure she’s worn other designers to events but that she wears Shoji most of the time.) I love how classic and elegant this is.

Spencer’s fellow nominee, Hong Chao (Downsizing), was in Stella McCartney and it shows unfortunately. This might be ok without the lace.
