To Wear A Dress Or Not To Wear A Dress
The Westworld actress, Rachel Evan Wood, didn't just wear a tuxedo on the red carpet of the Golden Globes because it was comfortable. Wood was trying to make a statement. While on the red carpet she was interviewed by Ryan Seacrest and 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 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."
In a sea full of bedazzled sequin dresses it is refreshing to see Wood do something different. Women should not be expected to wear certain things to be feminine. Women should not even be expected to be feminine to be female. It is important for girls to see different kinds of women being represented in media. They need to know they have options if they want to be a little different. Wood isn't the first woman to wear a suit on the red carpet, but those women are few and far between. A few female celebrities that have worn tuxedos before are Victoria Beckham, Beyonce and Angelina Jolie.
Many of them also sex up the suit instead of leaving it masculine like Wood did. Award shows are all about the fashion and this was the perfect place to make a statement. Check out a few other celebrities putting their creative touch while wearing a tux.
You don't need to wear a dress to feel feminine!
