Evan Rachel Wood made a powerful statement at the Golden Globes last night by appearing in a custom-made Altuzarra suit.

EVAN RACHEL WOOD WEARS CUSTOM TUXEDO TO GLOBES

The Westworld star explained that she “decided early in the year not to wear any dresses to awards shows to be a gentle reminder to young girls and women that you’re not required one if you don’t want to, to really be yourself and that your worth is more than the dresses that you wear.”

She also explained to interviewer Ryan Seacrest that she herself loves dresses. “This is my third nomination, I’ve been to the Globes six times, and I’ve worn a dress every time,” she said. “And I love dresses, I’m not trying to protest dresses. But I wanted to make sure that young girls and women knew that they aren’t a requirement.”

The actress had already suited for a few shows already this awards season, but this look was her fiercest yet. She also explained that her suit was a tribute to the late David Bowie, who would have turned 70 today. Her other inspirations were Marlene Dietrich, who famously wore suits, and the film Victor/Victoria, in which Julie Andrews rocked the masculine/feminine look.
