As the woman currently portraying the Queen, Olivia Colman is no stranger to ballgowns and elaborate events — and on Sunday, she brought her fashion A-game to the 2020 Golden Globe Awards

She was dressed in a regal puffed-sleeve red dress — but it was Colman’s eye-catching accessory that had eagle-eyed fans talking.

What at first glance appeared to be a large button on the 45-year-old actress’s clutch was actually a ring with a special message.

Reading "Equal representation for actresses, 50:50," the ring highlights ERA 50:50, a British organization that promotes equal gender balance on screen and stage.

Colman joins fellow actresses Emma Watson, “Fleabag” co-star Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Claire Foy, who previously played Queen Elizabeth II on Netflix’s “The Crown,” as vocal supporters of ERA 50:50. 

Both Emma Watson and Claire Foy wore buttons to the 2018 Golden Globes at the height of the #MeToo movement. This year, Colman continues the tradition of supporting the organization by bringing awareness to the cause on the red carpet.

Available in both Colman’s ring format and the buttons worn by Watson and Foy, supporters can donate to ERA 50:50 by purchasing the statement-making accessories through their website. 

Retailing for £3.50 and £2.00 (approx. $6 and $3.40) respectively, all funds go towards campaign activity in the U.K., and are used for activities directly related to bringing 50:50 representation on stage and on screen in the U.K.
