Early on in her career, she suited up for the red carpet to make a statement at such a high-profile event. Evan donned an Altuzarra tuxedo suit at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards. She claimed that she did it to dispel the notion that women are required to wear dresses.

In fact, she promised to wear a different suit for every event to emphasize her point. This was to encourage everyone to wear whatever they want and break free from societal standards.

Most recently, Evan traded her power suits for dresses as she promoted the new season of HBO’s Westworld. We love seeing her looking all sharp and fierce, but this was a welcome change that showcased her versatility and flair.

Stunning in Zuhair Murad and Sophia Webster

For Westworld’s Season 4 premiere, Evan swept everyone off their feet with her Zuhair Murad blue silk gown. This Spring 2022 creation featured a deep V-shaped neckline, cut-out details, and a thigh-high slit.

Her dress also had a draped design, pleated detailing, and a floor-sweeping hem. The slit showed off her navy strappy heels from Sophia Webster, while the shoulder tails gave the illusion of a cape.

She finished off her look with glam waves and Fred Leighton jewels.

Charming in The Vampire’s Wife and Christian Louboutin

The 34-year-old actress and activist also made an appearance on Good Morning America to promote the new season of her HBO series.

She bloomed in her silk satin dress from The Vampire’s Wife, which featured a multicolored floral print and a wrap silhouette. It also had a crossover neckline, long puff sleeves with elasticized cuffs, and a ruffle trim.

The multi-hyphenate star kept her styling simple to put the focus on her floral print dress. Her hair cascaded in loose waves, while her drop earrings and gold rings added some shimmer.

As for her footwear, Evan wore Christian Louboutin black ankle-strap heels. These shoes featured slender toe bands, thin stiletto heels, and clear PVC panels.

Surprising fans on set in a structured coat and black leather ankle boots

Based on the 1973 film of the same name created by Michael Crichton, Westworld traverses between the past and the future. It sheds a light on the darker side of entertainment and asks questions regarding humanity, memory, and free will.

It boasts of a stellar ensemble cast that includes Thandiwe Newton, Tessa Thompson, James Marsden, and Aaron Paul.

The first season began as a neo-Western tale with a science fiction twist. But as the story progressed, the setting expanded to the modern world in the mid-21st century.

Late last year, fans of the show were delighted and confused at seeing the Westworld set take over Manhattan.

Evan’s appearance on set was particularly baffling as her character met a tragic end in the previous season.

The award-winning actress was spotted wearing a structured green coat over a cut-out top and cropped pants.

She also wore a belt bag around her waist and black leather ankle boots with high block heels.

Now that the cat’s out of the bag, we can’t wait to see more of Evan’s character on the show. We’re also looking forward to more stylish turns from the trailblazing star as she continues to impress on screen and change the world.
