Lola Kirke was setting the agenda with unshaven underarms at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards last night.

The Mozart in the Jungle star was also making a political statement with a 'F*** Paul Ryan' badge in response to the US House Speaker's announcement that Planned Parenthood - a non-profit organisation that provides reproductive health services - would be stripped of funding.

The 26-year-old British born US actress - and sister to Girls star Jemima Kirke - was promoting positive body image while refusing to adhere to the typical demands of beauty and grooming expected of female celebrities.

Lola wasn't asked about her underarm hair on the red carpet, but talking about her badge and subsequent message to Ryan, she told ELLE: 'I think that, along with a number of other decisions that are being talked about being made by the new administration, is atrocious.

'As a person with a platform, no matter what size it is, I think it's important to share your views and maybe elevate people that might agree with you, that maybe won't feel like they can have the same voice. My body my choice, your body your choice,' she added.

She also shared a clip of herself giving zero f***s while dancing in hair rollers and nude underwear as she got ready for the award ceremony.

Red carpet ready!
