When actress Evan Rachel Wood
, 21, began dating goth rocker Marilyn Manson
a couple of years ago, her personal style got a lot more dark. Seemingly overnight, Wood was wearing vintage dresses and pancake makeup, even dyeing her hair a jet black that drew her constant comparisons to Dita Von Teese
(Manson's ex-wife, of course).
But in an interview with The Daily Beast
, Evan insists she's always had that sense of style - that it was one of the things that drew Manson to her in the first place. She says: I had dressed like that on my own—I would want to do something really dark or vintage or over-the-top for an award show, but my people would be like, ‘It makes you look old, let’s keep you young and fresh and light and fluffy.” And I hadn’t gotten my voice yet so I was just like, ‘OK, you’re right, I suck, I’ll wear what you say.’ But then I met [Marilyn], and I found somebody who appreciated all those things about me that I thought were wrong. He liked the music I liked, the way I dressed, the people I hung out with.
Since the breakup, Evan's seemed to move away from the pinup-queen look - not entirely, but at least she can't be accused of pilfering directly out of someone else's closet. See before and after:
Evan is now linked to her former Once & Again
co-star Shane West.
