If Jaimie Alexander wasn’t on your radar yet, she is now. The actress (and Peter Facinelli’s girlfriend) currently stars in Thor: The Dark World and made quite the red carpet statement Monday night at the L.A. premiere of the film. Alexander selected a crazy-revealing black Azzaro dress, which showed off a lot of skin and her hot bod. Cue the Gwyneth Paltrow comparisons.

“You know, it’s actually quite warm because it’s a long sleeve,” she told PEOPLE at the premiere. “I tried on a lot of dresses, and a lot of them were actually too big, or too small, or too short, or too tall, and then I saw this dress. I saw a photo of it and I thought, ‘I can’t wear that because that is revealing!’ Then when I put it on, it was edgy but sort of classy at the same time.”

While we don’t know how the actress avoided a wardrobe malfunction (she’s clearly not wearing any undergarments), she did share how she maintains her toned figure.

“I lift a lot of weights,” she said, adding that she grew up in an athletic environment: “I have four brothers, and I was also on my high school wrestling team. The boys team. But as I was on it I recruited some more females because there were actually 81 schools in Texas with female wrestlers.”

And with all that background, Alexander would be an appropriate choice for the role of Wonder Woman, a role to which she’s rumored to be attached. “Hypothetically speaking, it would be an honor. I grew up as a huge fan of Wonder Woman. I was actually a huge fan of the comic books growing up.”

Do you like the actress’s dress or is it too revealing? Do you think she would make a good Wonder Woman? Sound off below!

I am a fan of sexy and pushing the envelope, but this is just dumb. Way too desperate for attention and it doesn’t even look good. Too bad, cause she is beautiful.

If there were just a little more fabric to cover her crotch it might be classy.Maybe. As it is, it’s just plain vulgar.

This dress is missing a lot of things… including class.

This is no way to show up to a classy event. She totally crossed the line…not one bit tasteful. Why in the world did she think she needed to (un)dress like this?

Just because she says it’s classy does NOT make it so! I think TRASHY is a more appropriate descriptive.

She looks hot! She can pull it off and has a great body. People are just envious. Green eyed monsters hiding behind a keyboard!!!!!!

There’s something sad about these people having to say, “look at me, look at me”. It’s a sad life if all you have to go on are looks.

SO inappropriate, even if you are Hollywood! What kind of madness. Women really need to respect themselves more!

I LOVE it. Not at first, though. Gotta be bold to wear that!
