The last time we saw the Stranger Things cast wearing formal attire at a notable event, it was at their Snow Ball formal in the final episode of the show's second season. But last night, the young actors turned heads in their all-black formal attire in support of the "Time's Up" movement. The movement was founded at the very beginning of 2018 in response to the overwhelming amount of women, as well as some men, who came forward with sexual harassment and abuse allegations against some of Hollywood's most powerful male figures.
In fact, in October of 2017, Finn Wolfhard came forward with sexual assault allegations of his own. The young actor fired his agent, Tyler Grasham, after he alleged that he sexually assaulted him. Wolfhard's agent was added to the long list of men who had already been accused, including Hollywood tycoon Harvey Weinstein, actor Kevin Spacey, and standup comedian Louis CK (to name a few).
Not only was it empowering to see actors and actresses standing in solidarity with one another, but also, to see the young cast of Stranger Things standing in solidarity with their beloved castmate.
The name of the "Time's Up" movement is aimed directly at sexual assault perpetrators, telling them that their time taking advantage of young, vulnerable men and women is finally up. The curtain has been lifted, and "a new day is on the horizon," as Oprah Winfrey said in her inspiring acceptance speech for the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement award.
Finn Wolfhard posted this adorable of the Stranger Things cast, standing side-by-side in their black uniforms of solidarity. From left to right: Sadie Sink, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, and Noah Schnapp.
Wolfhard also posted this adorable photo of him and his mom before the event.
Caleb McLaughlin posted this bad*ss Boomerang of the Stranger Things boys taking the red carpet together last night.
And of course, Millie Bobby Brown looking as fabulous as ever in a Calvin Klein by Appointment number.
And while these stars looked fabulous in their all-black numbers, The Crown actor Claire Foy reminds us that wearing all black was "not a fashion statement. It's a solidarity statement."
