Red Carpet: Actress Jaimie Alexander Upstages Thor Premiere In Stunningly Naked Dress

There have been a few dresses, throughout the ages, that have managed to cut through the din of now-mindless 24-hour red carpet coverage and, in their small way, become legendary. There’s the good examples (Charlize Theron in orange Vera Wang, Cate Blanchett in lavender Gaultier, to name a few) and then there are the ones that became legend for how much of the female body they expose.

It was Jennifer Lopez in that mythic plunging green Versace who first broadcast to the world that if you walk down a red carpet naked, people will know your name the next day (Rose McGowan discovered that a few years before Lopez, though). Toni Braxton tried her luck soon after.

Now, there’s an entire cottage industry of actresses, heiresses and wannabes strolling down red carpets in tiny straps of fabric clinging to their bodies by industrial fashion tape (or nothing) and hoping that those tiny straps will launch 1,000 blog posts just like this one.

Jaimie Alexander is the latest actress to do so. While she is best known for her role on Kyle XY, she is also in the Thor franchise, so we’re a little surprised by the urgency of what she wore to last night’s Hollywood premiere:

This is Spring 2014 Azzaro, by the way.

At this point in the world and the internet, must we ever be so naive to think someone could wear a dress like this because… she simply liked it? Is such a thing even possible anymore?

We’d argue that very few red carpet decisions hinge purely on the wearer liking it and are more often guided by public perception–how the look will photograph, what will guarantee positive coverage, who are the important designers of the moment, how firm and buffed your pubis will look on the Daily Mail.

Oh, and we didn’t even mention the back:

    WHY? The creepiest part has to be the weird panel that suddenly curves around to cover her swimsuit area. I HATE IT.

  • http://www.ambiencechaser.com/ Elizabeth Licata

    A valiant effort, but I resolve to continue confusing her with Jason Alexander.

    I actually kind of like it… ::ducks:: Don’t yell at me!

  • CaitlinCorsetti

    I love everything about this, actually. Also, her makeup is so fabulous it hurts.

  • Sam Pensive

    yeah! a lot of guys will swoon over her makeup…no doubt.

  • Alexis H

    Urgh, the assymetry is upsetting my OCD tendencies. And she’s so beautiful! I feel like this dress actually detracts from her overall attractiveness because it draws all the attention away from her pretty face.

    • DeanaCal

      I totally agree! Her hair and makeup are absolutely flawless, and nobody noticed because of the dress, which isn’t even that flattering. :(

    • ThomasER916

      Even as a man, I agree. The curvy asymmetrics of 70′s style Retro furniture looks gross, cartoonish, like cheap hipster art.

      Sexy close attract my attention. They don’t aggravate my sense of symmetry.

    This Dress is something I would want My GF to wear before we go to Bed and Have a Good Time! ….Fore Play Dress!

    • Krusticle

      Could the designer not have used a side zipper, at least?

  • Lenora Pentecost-Bratton

    She looks like a real life Wonder Woman.

    I think that it has an otherworldlyness to it that I love but, it only works at the premiere of a movie in which you play a goddess.
