At first glance, Gillian Anderson's Golden Globes dress looked like a simply beautiful white strapless ball gown. And while it was that, the dress was also embroidered with a vulva motif, which one would only notice upon closer inspection of the Gabriela Hearst piece, since the embroidery was also white.

"The dress is designed by Gabriela Hearst, and it has vaginas on it," Anderson told Deadline about the piece.

She explained she chose it "for so many reasons," adding, "It's brand appropriate."

One of Anderson's most recent iconic roles was as a sex therapist on Sex Education, which is part of why the dress was so appropriate for her.

In fact, one social media user wrote, "gillian anderson said sex education may have ended but it is NOT over!!!!"

Speaking to ExtraTV, Anderson further explained, "So this is Gabriela Hearst. It's a collaboration with me, for my G Spot brand, which is an alternative wellness brand, it's called G Spot, and the dress has yonis, if you'd like to pan down, there are so many yonis on my dress."

The actress also highlighted the gown's incredible craftsmanship, saying, "It took three and a half hours per yoni to embroider, and there are a lot. So it's about 150 hours of embroidery."
