When Hollywood goes full black-tie, who kills it on the red carpet and who should be second-guessing their fashion decisions?

This Sunday at the 2018 Golden Globes, Hollywood decided to take a stand against sexual harassment and support the Time’s Up movement, which extends the focus on women marginalized due to their class, race, or sexuality. One of the initiative’s efforts was symbolic, with Golden Globes attendees wearing black on the red carpet. Here is a list of some who did black the best and those who needed a tad bit more effort.
Reese Witherspoon (Best)

Perfectly simple, but eye-catching at the same time. A huge step-up from her ensemble at the Emmys.
Debra Messing (Worst)

Kerry Washington (Best)

Emma Watson (Worst)

Meryl Streep (Best)

This black ensemble is extremely form-fitting and classic. The neckline is also a great touch and makes it pop.
Jessica Biel (Worst)

Tracee Ellis Ross (Best)

Caitriona Balfe (Worst)

The furry sleeve things are weird. It also looks like she can’t walk. But she made it down the red carpet, so what do I really know?
Claire Foy (Best)

Alexis Bledel (Worst)

This isn’t something I would pick for an awards show. Maybe it would be better without the leaves or whatever is on the top. The sheer shimmery belt should be in its place.
Saoirse Ronan (Best)

Dakota Johnson (Worst)
[caption id="attachment_5767" align="aligncenter" width="683"] Dakota Johnson, courtesy of Getty Images[/caption] This is the perfect example of doing too much. The dress should’ve just be a simple black. But all of these different elements ruin it. The details really do not match and look like they belong on completely different dresses. Maybe just one would’ve worked, but not all of them.
Viola Davis (Best)
