Gillian Anderson is in a show called Sex Education, in which she plays a sex therapist who decorates her home with phallic sculptures and yonic art — which the actor has embraced on her own social media. Did you think she was going to show up to the Golden Globes in a dress without an embroidered pattern of vaginas all over the skirt? Come on, now.

The two-time Golden Globe winner attended the 2024 awards in a strapless white ballgown by Gabriela Hearst with an embroidered pattern adorning the full skirt. At first glance, the shapes appear to be somewhat floral, but on closer inspection, you can tell that these are clearly vaginas.

Asked about the bold fashion choice on the red carpet, Anderson told Deadline (via People), “[I wore it] for so many reasons. It’s brand appropriate.”

She explained to British Vogue that the dress was “brand appropriate” in several ways, actually. “Since my Instagram presence has been highlighting yonis since Sex Education landed on Netflix, and with the mantra of my brand G-Spot being to ‘prioritise pleasure,’ I wanted to bring this element into the design,” she said. “I’m so pleased Gabriela was up for the challenge!”

To emphasise the point, on her own Instagram post, Anderson tagged the look with #yonioftheday.

Of course, if you are, for whatever reason, offended by the artful vagina design on Anderson’s Globes gown, you can always choose to interpret the pattern as flowers. Once she was inside, Gillian Anderson told People her gown was “covered in peonies!”

Wink, wink.
