She may not have won a Golden Globe, but Evan Rachel Wood made a big impact in the custom Altuzarra suit she wore to the Golden Globes last night.

Wood – nominated for best actress in a TV series for her work in Westworld – looked incredible in the suit, and also gave a perfect explanation for why she chose it instead of something more traditional.

She told Ryan Seacrest during E! Live From the Red Carpet.

I’ve been to the Globes six times and I’ve worn a dress every time – 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, 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.”

Wood went on to explain that her ensemble was also paying homage to great suits of Hollywood past, such as those from Victor/Victoria, actress Marlene Dietrich, and, of course, David Bowie — “because it’s his birthday,” she noted.
