17 black dresses we'd like to see on the Golden Globes red carpet as stars stage protest against sexual harassment

After what has been a particularly dark year in the world of Hollywood, actresses attending January's Golden Globes ceremony will reportedly team up to make a statement.

Wearing black in protest of the sexual harassment that has been exposed within the industry, stars will join one another in acknowledging and condemning the culture of sexual misconduct dominating the news agenda since allegations against Harvey Weinstein emerged earlier this year.

According to People magazine, several high-profile actresses, nominees and presenters - including Emma Stone, Meryl Streep and Jessica Chastain - will be wearing the colour on the ceremony's red carpet on January 7.

While there has yet to be any confirmation, it is believed that the protest may extend throughout awards season.

Often considered a 'safe option', it would be easy to assume the red carpet may therefore be somewhat of a less exciting affair this year.

But with the colour palette providing little wiggle room - with fewer shade ranges than other hues - this season it will fall to fabric, embellishment and shape to really do the talking.

Alexander McQueen's SS18 collection played host to a number of dark looks, with one in particular offering up a sheer skirt, bardot shoulder design that Emma Stone would look heavenly in.

Erdem's February 2017 layered frill design with a midi-length hemline would suit Kate Bosworth, while the likes of Kristen Stewart and Zendaya ought to head for Chanel's AW17 couture collection.

Nicole Kidman would also be wise to opt for AW17 couture, with Giorgio Armani's collection providing a wealth of perfectly-suited options.

A looser Louis Vuitton SS18 look would work for Meryl Streep's favourite silhouette, but we would equally love to see the star in Givenchy's SS18 knee-length pencil dress with chiffon sleeves.

Keep an eye on standard/fashion to see who wears what throughout awards season and if, indeed, this sartorial protest goes ahead
