There’s no denying that Evan Rachel Wood looked amazing on the red carpet in her Altuzarra suit at the 2017 Golden Globes. In fact, Wood wasn’t the only one to forgo the traditional gown. Others like Octavia Spencer and Kathryn Hahn also ditched their dresses for spectacular looking suits.
But the reason behind Wood’s sartorial choice was even more awesome.
Not only was the look a “homage to Marlene Dietrich and Victor Victoria and David Bowie,” Wood also wanted to send out a message to her young fans.
“This is my third nomination. I’ve been to the Globes six times and I’ve worn a dress every time,” the Westworld star told E!.”I love dresses–I’m not trying to protest dresses, but I wanted to make sure young girls and women know they aren’t a requirement. You don’t have to wear one if you don’t want to, and to just be yourself because your worth is more than that.”
We couldn’t agree more.
