Perhaps that's why some people have been a bit confused by her comments on red carpet fashion at a talk for Women in Motion in Cannes.
Wright, who wore a sleek black suit to the event, then explained that in her eyes, fashion talk is just part of any red carpet event.
"That red carpet, it's always going to be about fashion," The Dark of Night actress said. "That's why it's there, that's why people are stopped on that red carpet — because they're wearing a designer's piece. And, you're there to sell; you're doing them a favor. And, they are doing you a favor by giving you publicity. It's a give-and-take."
While Wright may have been amiss to say, "You're a woman, you wear a dress," — certainly, wearing a dress is not required of any woman, and cis women aren't the only ones who can don a gown — her overall message seems to be on-point. After all, we'll be the first to admit we love a good red carpet gallery.
Fashion, though sometimes flawed through its gender-prescriptive labeling, can be a fun way for people to express themselves and though it may not be fair that men aren't questioned as often for their ensembles, that doesn't mean that women also can't have fun discussing the looks they spent hours working to complete.
At the end of the day, women should celebrate the things that make them happy, whatever they may be.
