The Westworld star caught up with Ryan Seacrest to talk about her custom Altuzarra, saying: "This is my third nomination and I've been to the Globes six times and I've worn a dress every time 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. And that, you know, 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 I said this year I'm going as an homage to Marlena Dietrich and Victor Victoria and David Bowie, 'cause it's his birthday."
