On a red carpet awash in a river of black gowns, A-list actresses confessed relief.
Said Dakota Johnson: "Typically, I find myself on autopilot when I go down a red carpet because I'm anticipating 'Who are you wearing' questions, and things that don't necessarily have anything to do with film. Tonight is quite different. Everyone is very alert and aware and there's a sense of solidarity and a sense of wanting to convey a message. Men and women are very supportive of each other."
