At this year's awards ceremony, which honours the best talent in the film and TV industries, celebrities wore black to protest gender inequality and sexual misconduct. Both men and women united in support of the Time's Up movement against sexual assault and harassment in the workplace by wearing the color in solidarity.

According to Vogue, Condé Nast and eBay have partnered with Time's Up to auction off 39 of the black gowns and tuxedos from the Globes red carpet, ranging from Reese Witherspoon's Zac Posen full-skirted gown to Zoe Kravitz's sleek Saint Laurent column dress; the looks are being donated by the designers who dressed the stars and the proceeds will directly benefit the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund.

Condé Nast announced today that, along with eBay, it will auction off some of the outfits worn by the stars in order to raise funds for the Hollywood-backed anti-harassment Time's Up initiative.

Red-carpet pieces worn by Reese Witherspoon, Tracee Ellis Ross, Viola Davis, Salma Hayek, and more will be available on ebay.com/TimesUp from January 19 (at noon ET) through January 26, as part of a partnership between Condé Nast and eBay for Charity.

The auction will last until January 26, and three dresses will be sold via a "sweepstakes", where eBay users donate at least $25 for a chance to win a dress of their choice.

Celebrity dresses set to go to auction include: Laura Dern's Armani number, Viola Davis' Brandon Maxwell gown, Claire Foy's Stella McCartney suit, Margot Robbie's Gucci dress, and many, many more.

"At Condé Nast, we've always believed in the importance of swift action to support meaningful social change, " Anna Wintour, artistic director of Condé Nast and editor-in-chief of US Vogue said in an official statement.

Now, less than two weeks after the show, you have an opportunity to own a bit of this red carpet history yourself - and help raise funds for the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund while doing so. Showing their solidarity, nearly every Golden Globe attendee this year wore black, and now numerous celebs who were in attendance are donating their gowns and tuxes to continue raising awareness and now money for the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund.
