Two words: sheer pockets. It's the look we never could've predicted but now hope will be a major trend, and it's all thanks to Geena Davis.

The actress rocked the look as she walked the red carpet in a stunning black gown with a plunging v-neck designed by Romona Keveza. It's the "it has pockets!" meme, but make it fashion.

Davis was honored tonight with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for her work in promoting gender equality in the film industry, especially in children's television. She received the Oscar back in October, during the 11th annual Governors Awards. 

In 2004, she launched the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, where she works to increase the presence of female characters in the media. Since then, she launched the Bentonville Film Festival, which offers a platform for a variety of storytellers to share their work. 

"It was really exciting. First of all, you get to know you won beforehand, so you have time think about what you're going to say," she said during an ABC red carpet interview. "But it was really, really astounding. I got a call from the president of the Academy, [who] urgently needed to speak to me. I thought I committed some Academy crime, but to find out it was them was wonderful."

From her fashion choices to her fight for gender equality, Davis is an icon in every sense of the word.
