Evan Rachel Wood has vowed to wear a suit to every awards ceremony this year.
The Westworld actress donned a blue velvet Altuzarra suit on the red carpet at the 2017 SAG Awards on Sunday (29.01.17) and admitted she is hoping to show people they shouldn’t feel they need to conform in a certain way in order to fit in.
She told E! News: “I’ve always wanted to do it. I promised myself this year that I would wear a suit to every award show.
“I dunno, a lot of it is personal. I think I myself felt pressure a lot of times that I had to look or dress a certain way, and especially growing up with the industry. So I thought, you know, I’m just gonna go the other way and reach out to a little girl who is like me, possibly. So that’s what I’m going for this year.
“It’s all about choice. Choice. Options.”
However, the 29-year-old star – who wore a black and white Altuzarra suit to the Golden Globes earlier this month – previously insisted she isn’t trying to “protest dresses” as she still loves the garment, but wants to show that there are always other options available.
She said at the Globes: “I’ve worn a dress every single time and I love dresses.
“I’m not trying to protest dresses but I wanted to make sure young girls and women know that it’s not a requirement.”
“You don’t have to wear one if you don’t want to,” the actress added. “Just be yourself because you’re worth more than that.”
