Meryl Streep made a #TimesUp statement at the Oscars that was hidden in plain sight — and no one noticed

Days before the 2018 Oscars, #TimesUp organizers confirmed that the event would not have a dress code to protest sexual misconduct within the industry. Many attendees, however, supported the movement by adding #TimesUp pins to their tuxedo lapels, clutches, and gowns — or, in the case of Best Actress nominee Meryl Streep, their updo.

A few eagle-eyed fans noticed that the star of The Post — whose glasses and red gown also fetched comparisons to a Shrek 2 characterhad discreetly affixed the pin to the bun at the nape of her neck. Streep’s husband, Don Gummer, wore a pin in a more obvious location: his jacket lapel.

The subtle sartorial move earned praise from those who noticed it. The star has previously been criticized for her past professional ties to Harvey Weinstein, with some accusing her of being complicit in his alleged abuse of women. Streep has since distanced herself from the disgraced producer, calling his recent attempts to use her as part of his legal defense “pathetic and exploitive.”




Streep’s hair trick wasn’t the only inventive way celebrities showed their support. Emma Watson wore a temporary #TimesUp tattoo on her arm as she made the Oscars after-party scene.
