2015 Golden Globes: The Red Carpet Is Awash With Je Suis Charlie Homages

The Golden Globes Is Awash With Je Suis Charlie Homages

Red carpet events have long been used as a site for political statement – see Salma Hayek at last year’s Cannes Film Festival flashing a #Bringbackourgirls following the Boko Haram kidnappings – and the 2015 Golden Globes became the high point of Hollywood taking a stand.

On a day where millions lined the streets of Paris in unity against terror, A-listers such as Dame Helen Mirren, George and Amal Clooney and Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson wore their support quite literally on their sleeve. With Je Suis Charlie accessories on their sparkling gowns and signs held for photographers they protested the continued freedom of speech following the terror attacks last week.

The Clooneys wore matching badges (bringing back the punk-style 'message' button trend) – he on the lapel of his recycled wedding tux, she on the front of her white Dior clutch. Amal explained their decision, saying she had ‘customized in solidarity with the French people who've gone through a terrible week.’ In a rousing memorial as part of his acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille award, George also added ‘We will not walk in fear. We will not do it. Je suis Charlie.’

Meanwhile, Helen Mirren made a creative stand with a brooch fashioned from a journalist’s fountain pen pinned to her scarlet Dolce & Gabbana dress, also posing with a Je Suis Charlie sign to display what otherwise may have been a subtle point, and was later followed by Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson with the paper protest, and grand dame Kathy Bates who got technological by showing the now iconic sign via her iPhone.
