Evan Rachel Wood suited up for the Golden Globes, proving that girls don’t have to wear dresses

Evan Rachel Wood

Altuzarra tux? Yes, please!

While Lily Collins’ 74th Annual Golden Globes dress was the stuff our pink-obsessed princess dreams are made of, it was Westworld actress Evan Rachel Wood who stood out from the crowd at the Beverly Hilton during last night’s red carpet.

Paying homage to the late David Bowie in honour of the occasion falling on his birthday, she stepped out in her Altuzarra tux to make what can only be described as a fashion statement.

“This is my third nomination and I’ve been to the Globes six times, and I’ve worn a dress every time,” she explained to Ryan Seacrest. “And I love dresses, I’m not trying to protest dresses, but I wanted to make sure that young girls and women knew they aren’t a requirement. And that 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. So this year I said I’m going as an homage to Marlene Dietrich and Victor Victoria, and David Bowie because it’s his birthday.”
