When it comes to red carpet fashion, Evan Rachel Wood consistently makes her way to the top of our best-dressed lists, always keeping us anticipating her next appearance—and wondering what epic pantsuit she’ll wear next.
There’s been a definite upswing in the popularity of the pantsuit, something widely credited to our girl Hil. However, Wood has been slaying the pantsuit game for over a decade at this point, and in honor of her 30th birthday today, we felt her affinity for pantsuits deserved some recognition of its own.
What we must remember is that Wood isn’t just wearing pantsuits because they look great on her; she’s making a serious statement to women everywhere. “I’ve been to the Globes six times, and I’ve worn a dress every time,” she told Ryan Seacrest at this year’s Golden Globes. “I just want to make sure young girls and women know that they aren’t a requirement. Just be yourself because your worth is so much more than that.” Now, that’s something we can get behind.
