It was the unexpected talking point of the evening: armpit hair. 

In 2017, Lola Kirke rocked up to the red carpet with unshaven pits. 

Surprisingly, it was one of the "major" events of the night.

Quelle horreur!

The 27-year-old actress accessorised her gorgeous strapless gown with simple jewellery, and unshaven underarms, and people really noticed.

The question is, why on earth was this front page news?

Let's face facts: women have armpit hair (shocking, I know), and if they want to share it with the world… who are we to judge?

In short, if a woman chooses not to shave her armpits… why do we care?

We have been led to believe that in order to be considered beautiful, a woman must be pristine and totally hair free (legs, armpits and everything inbetween). 

Well, I am here to tell you that that is not, and SHOULD NOT, be the case. 

Let us rewind, say 50 years or so ago, to a time where the beautiful Sophia Loren was one of the most exceptional models in the world. 

Sophia was glamorous, beautiful and successful… and had lovely fluffy armpits. 

Nobody cared back then, and nobody should care now.

My point here is that beauty comes in many different forms, and the pressure to look a certain way has started taking away from this fact.

I personally choose to shave my armpits (incase anyone was wondering), and that is fine, but this whole thing has me really wondering why. 

I shave my armpits because I have been led to believe that this will make me more beautiful… sad but true.

Lola Kirke's "no f**ks given" approach to the Golden Globes red carpet is something to be respected, as it reminds us that not everyone has to look perfectly polished all the time.

There are certain beauty demands that females are expected to adhere to, and that just is not fair. 

Ladies, grow your hair or don't… either way you are, and always will be, truly beautiful. 

Rant over.

Saoirse Ronan is among the actresses who have pledged to donate their all-black gowns worn at this year's Golden Globes ceremony to a charity auction in aid of Time's Up.

The campaign, which was established by some of Hollywood's most influential female stars to help those that have suffered sexual abuse or harassment in the workplace, has teamed up with Condé Nast and eBay for the fundraising initiative.

Dresses worn by Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Meryl Streep and Emma Watson, as well as tuxedos worn by Hugh Jackman, Jude Law and Neil Patrick Harris are all expected to go under the hammer.

The auction follows the Golden Globes red carpet 'blackout' – a movement which saw stars sport all-black ensembles in a show of solidarity with the Time's Up campaign and the victims of the recent sexual harassment allegations.

Speaking about the auction, Anna Wintour, artistic director of Condé Nast and editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine said: "At Condé Nast, we've always believed in the importance of swift action to support meaningful social change."

"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."

Over the weekend, we were enthralled by the series of elegant black gowns which bestowed the Golden Globe's red carpet with their glory.

The dresses were stunning but sombre, representing a stance of solidarity with the women who have been sexually harassed and assaulted in Hollywood. 

Only a few women didn't get the all-black memo, one of which was German model Barbara Meier.

 

A post shared by ARIANN Magazine (@ariannmagazine) on

The model was criticised for her choice to wear a multi-hued gown, in shades of pink, purple, blue and white. 

Taking to Instagram, the model explained in both German and English why she opted for the embellished, feathered gown despite knowing about the Time's Up campaign. 

'We were fighting a long time for the freedom to wear what we want to and that it is also ok, to dress up a little more sexy,' she posted. 

 

A post shared by Barbara Meier (@barbarameier) on

'If we now restrict this, because some men can’t control themselves, this is a huge step back in my opinion.'

'We should not have to wear black to be taken serious. Us women should shine, be colourful and sparkle. Just like it is our nature.'

'In my opinion this symbolizes our freedom and our new strength.'

'But to make clear: A lot of bad things happened and should never happen again!!!'

While an explanation was welcomed, many felt that the model missed the point of the all-black dress code.

'So everybody rocked the black clothes at the Globes yesterday except Barbara Meier. When fashion is more important than equality! Well done,' said one Twitter user.

Nicole Kidman took home the award for Best Actress in a Limited Series at this year's Golden Globes, but a notable omission from her acceptance speech left viewers baffled.

The 50-year-old mother of four sparked outrage across social media when she failed to acknowledge her eldest children children, Connor and Isabella, who she adopted with ex-husband Tom Cruise.

Instead, the star referred only to her youngest daughters, Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret, who she shares with country music star Keith Urban, saying: “First cab off the rank, that means my daughters are still awake so Sunny, Faith, I love you. I’m bringing this home to you babies.”

This not the first time Nicole has failed to reference her children in an acceptance speech, and viewers were quick the criticise the star's repeated refusal to mention them.

However, despite the harsh criticism, it seems that there were no malicious intentions behind the snub. 

Isabella, 25, and Connor, 22, are both practising Scientologists and it's highly likely that Nicole's speculation of the religion has created a divide between her and her children. 

It is often the case that those who choose to leave the church get cut off from their families through no fault of their own. 

Though the star rarely speaks about the religion and the affect it had on her life, she briefly touched on the subject during an interview with Vogue in 2015.

"I've chosen not to speak publicly about Scientology," she told Vogue in 2015.

"I have two children who are Scientologists – Connor and Isabella – and I utterly respect their beliefs."

Nicole has not been pictured with her eldest children in over 10 years and it is unclear whether or not the family is still on speaking terms.

Chrissie Teigen has never made any secret of her disdain for the Trump family, and after nine years vocalising it, the Lip Sync Battle star was eventually blocked by Donald Trump on Twitter in July of last year.

‘LOL, no one likes you’ was her admittedly juvenile response to yet another ‘fake news’ rant by the POTUS,  but it was clearly the straw that broke the camel’s back.

And whether Chrissie hopes to elicit a similar response from his daughter Ivanka or not, she’s going the right away about if a recent tweet is anything to go by.

Contributing to the current narrative surrounding Oprah’s inspirational speech at Sunday night’s Golden Globes, Ivanka praised the veteran broadcaster and encouraged her followers to unite against sexism and harassment.

Given both her father’s reputation with regards the issue and her own dogged defence of his conduct, it’s hardly surprising many Twitter users felt somewhat irritated by Ivanka’s contribution, and this included Chrissie.

Responding to Ivanka’s tweek, Chrissie opted for another playground retort, writing: “Ew, Go away.”

The tweet has garnered a mixed response today, with some Twitter users questioning her disdain and others praising her stance.

“Further proof that liberals only support women that have their same political views. All other women be damned,” wrote one.

“Look at all these chumpettes trying to get angry at you, hilarious! You say ewww but their role model says grab their p******! And the girl you are being "mean" to doesn't support his accusers & has not helped women get equal pay. Keep going Chrissy!” wrote another in contrast.

She honoured the Times Up campaign by wearing a stunning black dress to last night’s Golden Globes, but there was something extra special about Emma Stone’s makeup look from the award ceremony.

The Oscar winner’s makeup artist shared a stunning photo of her makeup look with her Instagram followers, captioned, “This woman’s strength and beauty truly know no bounds. #emmastone heading to the #goldenglobes red carpet tonight. Emerald green eyes and violet stained lips.”

The Battle of the Sexes star wore violet lipstick and emerald green eyeshadow for the most empowering reason. Her makeup artist Rachel Goodwin revealed that Emma’s look was inspired by the Suffragette movement.

She shared, “Tonight my beauty inspiration came from the symbolic colours of the women’s suffrage movement. I wanted to create a makeup that would somehow be imbued with the message of female empowerment and solidarity.”

The makeup artist explained that Emma wore purple as it symbolises the royal blood that flows through the veins of every Suffragette.

She added that purple stood for their, “instinct for freedom and dignity, white stands for purity in private and public life.”

The La La Land star rocked the most stunning green eye-shadow which symbolised hope, which was one of the main themes of last night’s event.

Alongside Emma, hundreds of Hollywood stars hoped to raise awareness by wearing black on the Golden Globes red carpet.

Nicole Kidman, Viola Davis, Chris Hemsworth, Emilia Clarke, Reese Witherspoon, Zac Efron, the cast of Stranger Things all wore black in honour of the Times Up campaign.

We love how Emma used something as simple as makeup to spread an empowering and important message!

Harry Potter fans could hardly contain their excitement during last night's Golden Globes ceremony, after two of the series' best-loved characters reunited on stage.

Emma Watson and Robert Pattison caused a bit of frenzy when they teamed up to present the Best Television Limited Series to the winner Big Little Lies, some 13 years after appeared on screen together.

For those of you unfamiliar with the pairing, cast your minds back to 2005 when the actors starred as Hermione Granger and Cedric Diggory in fourth film in the magical franchise, Harry Potter an the Goblet of Fire. 

It was Robert's first big movie role and was no doubt the launching pad for a successful career that saw him go on to star as Edward Cullen in the Twilght saga and a host of independent films such as Remember Me and Water for Elephants

Needless to say, the mini reunion sent Harry Potter fans into overdrive with many hoping that the duo would be joined by Gary Oldman who played Sirius Black in the series. 

Here's some of our favourite reactions:

Saoirse Ronan has confirmed that she will be one of many actresses donning and all black ensemble at the Golden Globe awards this weekend.

The women of Hollywood have pledged to wear the sombre shade in solidarity with their fellow actresses who have been the victims of sexual assault and harassment.

The star told Extra that fans will be seeing a sea of black on the usually colourful red carpet.

 

A post shared by Saoirse Ronan (@ronan.saoirse) on

‘I’ve never felt so encouraged and inspired and supported to use whatever voice I have and for all of these people, men and women, to be able come together and use their influence and to open up the conversation and raise awareness and support anyone who's gone through, or anyone that has questioned their safety or their stance when they’re on set,’ she told Extra.

‘I think it’s invaluable and paramount that this happens now.’

The choice to wear black will highlight the fact that the recent outpouring of sexual abuse reports in Hollywood is neither acceptable nor to be tolerated.

'All female actresses attending the Globes are protesting by just wearing black gowns,' a source told PEOPLE previously.

We're looking forward to seeing all of the striking black gowns over the weekend.

In recent months, a number of very brave women and men have come forward in order to shine a light on the entertainment industry's shameful and hugely misogynistic underbelly.

The outpouring of stories detailing sexual harassment, abuse and rape at the hands of Hollywood's most powerful men, paved the way for a social media movement which sought to give a voice to women who have fallen victim to a culture weighted in favour of men.

In an attempt to acknowledge this, industry insiders have been been discussing the ways in which they can pay tribute to these victims, and recent reports suggest it may come down to outfit choice at the Golden Globes in January.

"All female actresses attending the Globes are protesting by just wearing black gowns,” a source told PEOPLE in response to rumours that female stars were planning to challenge the current status quo.

Choosing to wear a black ensemble will reportedly act as a symbol of protest against sexual harassment and gender inequality in Hollywood, and ties in with the #AskHerMore movement which seeks to remind the media that female stars are capable of discussing more than 'who they're wearing' on the red carpet.

"AskHerMore is fundamentally about treating women as full human beings rather than objects," documentary filmmaker Jennifer Siebel Newsom explains. "And I think #MeToo is about the same thing."

"I hope red carpet interviewers ask about the power the media has to make a difference in the world, how those involved in creating it can set a better example and the importance of broadening who gets to have a say in creating that media."

The reports come following an announcement that next year's Screen Actor's Guild Awards will feature an all-female presenting panel.

Starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, La La Land is the movie that has us falling in love with musicals all over again.

Up for a record-tying 14 Oscars (only Titanic and All About Eve can match that figure), it also won every category it was nominated for at the Golden Globes last month.

Oh, and it’s made close-to ten times its budget back already.

 

A video posted by La La Land (@lalaland) on

Here at SHEmazing! we say – go see it asap!

And if you’re wondering what the, ahem, song and dance is all about… here are eight very good reasons to LOVE La La Land

 

A photo posted by La La Land (@lalaland) on

1) You will worship musicals again

Sure for the first five minutes, you wonder how it’s all going to pan out. After another ten minutes of La La Land, you really start to like what you see. And after 30 minutes – well, then you are just ALL OVER musical films forever more.

2) You will covet the weather

It’s Ireland; it’s February. It’s chilly and damp and a bit dreary. What better time to inject a spot of LA sunshine and light into our lives? It’s practically a health treatment…

 

A video posted by La La Land (@lalaland) on

3) You will fall in love

Maybe not with your date – but certainly with the loved-up duo that is Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. Their chemistry = ah-maze-ing! This is their third film together (the others being Gangster Squad, and Crazy, Stupid, Love) and, yup, they’re once again pretty much perfect.

4) You will sing

Stick the soundtrack on Spotify in the aftermath and truthfully, you will listen and sing along to little else for weeks.

 

A photo posted by La La Land (@lalaland) on

5) You will adore dance

Dancing With The Stars has its merits, sure. But what you experience in La La Land is approximately 1,000 times better than anything seen on a celebrity-infused reality TV show.

6) You will dream

La La Land is all about making dreams come true. And every one of us – deep down – is a bit of a dreamer, right? This is a movie that offers beautiful escapism, making you feel all warm and fuzzy and happy inside at the same time.

 

A video posted by La La Land (@lalaland) on

7) You will be utterly devoted to Emma Stone

Put simply, she remains one of the most talented, smart and funny actresses we have ever seen. She is Hollywood royalty for all the right reasons.

8) You will quiver when you see Ryan Gosling

Do we need to elaborate? The guy is not only the sexiest man alive, but he also can dance, sing, AND play the piano. That is all the #boyfriendgoals right there.

She wasn't the first one to do it, and she certainly won't be the last, but Lola Kirke's decision not to shave her armpits ahead of the Golden Globes has attracted a worrying amount of coverage among the press and public.

And while many have celebrated Lola's decision, it seems a certain section of society believe an unshaven female armpit warrants a death threat.

In a post which stunned fans and followers this week, the actress took to Instagram to address the 'controversy', and made reference to the negative backlash she had received in the wake of her red carept walk.

Sharing a photo of herself on the night Lola wrote: "Ok, Now I'm really ready. Thanks to all you beautiful people that didn't send me death threats on account of my awesome hairy armpits."

Refusing to dwell on the drama which followed her appearance, the Mozart in the Jungle actress decided, instead, to pay tribute to the individuals who helped her prep for the big night.

"And thank you @susanwinget for always making me feel cool and @reginaharris for my make up, @blakeerik for my hair and @andrewgn for my kickass dress!" she wrote.

Stunned by the star's admission, fans and followers wasted no time expressing their disbelief over her revelation.

 

Red carpet ready!

A video posted by Lola Kirke (@lolakirke) on

"Why are ppl so amazed by this like wow hairy pits? I'm inspired," wrote one while another remarked: "Beautiful human!!! Thanks for trying to change this patriarchal society!"

"As Kelly Le Brock said in those old commercials, "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful." Glad you're refusing to be shamed by the demented and confused," added another.

Unfortunately, not everyone was on the same page, with one Instagram user writing; " So flashing disgusting armpit hair is somehow gona change womens rights or equality or whatever, find other ways , not this bullsh*t."

Can't school everyone.
