Oh, you thought the Golden Globes red carpet would be dominated by pretty, sparkly, dresses with plunging necklines? Well, you're not wrong—but here, Evan Rachel Wood makes the case for the polar opposite: a badass suit. I mean, come on:

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."
