After a silent ‘Red Carpet’ event, the Golden Globe Awards sets fashion ‘on fire’. The pomp and circumstance of the red carpet felt a bit icky, in light of the Amazonian fires.
It was a golden opportunity to harness its influence and say something about fashion’s role in climate change. To have a say about sustainable, upcycled, organic, or vintage fashion and the role influencers have in changing the direction.
But, not much happened. However, it seems that the Australian fires are finally triggering the so much needed change as the Golden Globe Awards winners discussed the climate crisis and disasters caused by our reckless actions, in their acceptance speeches:
“Act based on science, move our global workforce to renewable energy, and respect our planet for the unique and amazing place it is,” said Jennifer Aniston.
Joaquin Phoenix went a step further saying:
“It’s nice that so many people have sent their good wishes to Australia. But, we don’t have to take private jets to Palm Springs for the awards. We have to take responsibility and make changes in our own lives.”
