In partnership with TIME’S UP and eBay, Condé Nast announced an initiative to raise funds on behalf of the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund by auctioning the black dresses and tuxedos worn by various nominees, presenters and attendees from the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards. All funds raised from this auction will benefit the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund, which helps individuals who face workplace sexual harassment connect with legal representation and public relations assistance.

Donated by the designers, the black dresses and tuxedos represent solidarity and support for survivors of sexual harassment and assault and were worn to raise awareness for safety and equity in the workplace at the historic 2018 Golden Globes.

“We’re thrilled that actors and others in the entertainment industry are leading in this extraordinary way to end the scourge of workplace sexual harassment,” said Fatima Goss Graves, President and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center, which is administering the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund. “Each time they’ve stepped up they’ve inspired more attorneys to join the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund and more individuals to contribute.”

"At Condé Nast, we've always believed in the importance of swift action to support meaningful social change,” said Anna Wintour, Artistic Director of Condé Nast and Editor-In-Chief of Vogue. “Through this auction powered by eBay, and harnessing the compelling pull of both fashion and activism, we're hopeful that the black dresses worn at this year's historic Golden Globe Awards will raise funds for the TIME’S UP initiative, and serve to support the stories and voices of those who have been victims of sexual misconduct."

Starting on Friday, Jan. 19, through Jan. 26 at 9 AM PST/12 PM EST, shoppers can go to ebay.com/timesup and bid on the iconic red carpet looks celebrities like Reese Witherspoon, Meryl Streep, Elisabeth Moss, Tracee Ellis Ross, Emma Watson and Jude Law wore during this year’s Golden Globes thanks to generous donations made by designers like Armani, Chanel, Dior, Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Versace and more.

“Celebrating, safeguarding and increasing diversity and inclusion is a value that is core to eBay’s culture – as an employer and as one of the world’s leading commerce platforms,” said Devin Wenig, President and CEO of eBay. “As a company that supports gender pay equity and believes strongly that workplace environments should be free of offensive and hurtful behavior, we are proud to partner with the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund and Condé Nast to raise funds for this important cause." 

Three of the designer dresses will be available via a sweepstakes model in which eBay users can donate starting at $25.00 to the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund for a chance to win the dress of their choice. Designers include Stella McCartney, Diane von Furstenberg and Rosie Assoulin, respectively worn by Claire Foy, Madeline Brewer and Mandy Moore at the Golden Globes.
