Evan Rachel Wood may not have won a Golden Globe last night for her role on Westworld, but IMHO she won the red carpet in a sleek black-and-white custom suit by Altuzarra. She's hardly the first woman to wear a suit on the red carpet (hellloooooo Diane Keaton!). But her explanation for not wearing a dress was straight fire.

So was her outfit:

SHE LOOKS FLY AF.

When asked about her choice to wear a suit instead of a gown, the 29-year-old Westworld star said:

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 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.

She also posted this tweet, just to extra make her point:

And people on Twitter were loving it:

Wood also wasn't the only woman fighting the dress code last night. Octavia Spencer rocked a killer cobalt-blue suit, and also looked amazing:

Not only do they both look amazing, they probably enjoyed perks like being able to comfortably walk around, use the bathroom, and wear a regular bra (instead of the dreaded strapless).

If Lady Gaga can wear a meat dress or a giant egg (she loves her protein!), and this lady can wear a dress made out of pubic hair, Evan Rachel Wood can wear a slamming suit to the Golden Globes. And I can stay home in my pajamas.

Our bodies. Our fashion. Our choice.
