More proof that the Golden Globes last night was ruled by women: actress Lola Kirke made a statement about body positivity by wearing a strapless gown that accentuated her luscious, flowing locks. The ones growing from her armpits.
Because razor burn is soooooo 2016.
Here's a picture of the 26-year-old Mozart in the Jungle star looking fabulous and flaunting her unshaved underarms:
In addition to making a statement about women's bodies—our body hair, our choice!—she wore a pin on her dress that made another strong statement about female autonomy.
Here's a closer look:
"Fuck Paul Ryan" it reads.
So what's it like getting ready for the Golden Globes when you're a chill, no-fucks-giving actress who doesn't conform to Hollywood standards? Pretty effing fun, from the looks of it:
Of course, Instagram commenters had words. Because what women should and shouldn't do with their bodies is one of the internet's favorite things to have opinions about.
Like a gentleman named stonerb55 (red flag #1), who's just "keeping it 100" (red flag #2) by offering some unsolicited advice:
But many others rushed to Kirk's defense, and made some good points:
- charnash_@stonerb55 lol, if men don't shave women shouldn't have to either. Simple ?
- bluescluespunk@stonerb55 just a friendly reminded that it is their body and they are free to do what they want with it.
Kirke, who seems like the kind of person to not bother reading online comments, is keeping the family tradition alive. Her older sister, Girls star Jemimah Kirke, unabashedly rocked armpit hair at the CMFA Fashion Awards in 2015.
Hairy armpits may not be appealing to everyone. And that's fine! You don't have to like it. But until men start shaving their entire bodies, including their pits and private parts, they can STFU about what we should do with ours.
