Gown worn by Zoe Kravitz at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards

Description:

Strapless black gown worn by actress Zoe Kravitz at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards ceremony. The gown features a fitted bodice and long, slitted skirt that ends in a slight flare.

This Yves Saint Laurent dress, designed by Anthony Vaccarello, was worn by Kravitz at the Golden Globes as part of a "blackout" demonstration, wherein celebrities wore all black to represent solidarity and support for survivors of sexual harassment and assault and to raise awareness for safety and equity in the workplace. Following the awards ceremony, the designers donated the dresses to be sold on eBay for Charity in partnership with Condé Nast to raise funds for the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund. As the first-ever fundraiser for the organization, all proceeds from eBay’s auction helped individuals who face workplace sexual harassment connect with legal representation and public relations assistance.
