Jaimie Alexander's Barely-There Azzaro Dress: 'It's Actually Quite Warm'

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!

Sorry, I am not a fan of the dress. She is attractive, but as said, nothing is left to the imagination.

Diana on

It’s sleazy, not at all classy.

mrsmass on

it’s classy? not at all. the back isn’t THAT bad, but the front could use a bit less sheer fabric in her vagina region.

OhReallyyyy on

There is no way in heck that this dress is warm. It’s tacky, and harmful to women. Leave something to the imagination! My word…

JP Reid on

I don’t love it, but because she’s not curvy, she can pull it off. This dress on BeyoncĂ© or Kim Kardashian would look downright pornographic.

Lisa on

Sorry Jaimie, there is nothing “classy” about this dress. It does a disservice to women, and feeds into the male dominated culture of women purely as sexual objects. Its a sad cry for attention and approbation for the wrong reasons.

Jae on

There’s nothing classy about that dress.

Pam on

She thinks that’s classy?! Lol! What a ditz!

sarah chuks on

I hate d dress cnt believe she called that classy.

Lilly on

i wonder who the heck dresses some of these celebs.. blind people?? not an attractive dress AT ALL!!! She has a great body and pretty face, but this dress trashed he down big time..

Trina.ADR on

This dress isn’t a fashion statement, it just screams look at me I need attention. I don’t care if you have the figure for this dress or not. It is very unclassy.

Sandy on

She has a beautiful body, but why is it necessary to expose so much of it for public consumption. In my opinion, it reduces a woman to the sum of her parts, and we are so much more than that.

Dawnn on

Tacky…why is she so desperate?

kyliekoo on

She could’ve just shown up with nothing on, just naked; it’s the same idea. What did Peter wear, a leaf over his weiner.

Linda on

Way too revealing even with the mesh. Hideous and too showy in all the wrong places.

Mitzy on

One word ~ TRASHY

Mici on

Wow! Like someone else said, the back isn’t too bad, but it should have been more covered in the front. Imagine the back, and then just a “regular” cleavage in the front and it would actually have been edgy and cool…

kace on

If the leg cut outs were filled in with fabric, I would love this dress. I would not call this a “classy” look but compared to some outfits that are worn it could be considered that. To each their own.

Lacks Class on

Not a classy, lady like look at all.

BW on

In my opinion there is nothing classy about that dress. She may as well have stepped onto the red carpet in pasties and a g-string.

Heather on

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.

bebe on

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.

Lizzy on

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

Leah on

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?

Sabi on

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

Mia on

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

rudy2138 on

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.

Guest on

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

Georgia on

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

haley on

such a pretty girl, nice body.. dress makes her look cheap cheap cheap.. who the heck dresses these celebs? blind people??

Becky on

Too revealing. why do people think it is fine to show everything and still expect respect. Women or men who dress that way have no self respect.

GoForIt on

I think it’s an awesome dress and she is absolutely stunning! It’s edgy and hot. If I had the body, I’d wear it. We are so uptight as a society. Have fun once in a while – she sure is!

Kim Collins on

Yep, she definitely wants to be noticed…….a black bra and black, lacey underwear under it would have been classier. Too much is showing in the front. C’mon, Peter has daughters, set some standards for yourself. Ugh!

Someone on

Nothing classy about that ‘dress’. It’s cheap and tasteless. Leave it for the bedroom or the porn-industry! Good example for girls/women…Disgusting

Sophie on

im sorry to be the one to say this….but how do you sit in a dress like that with no underwear and not leave a little “mess” on the dress

Angie on

Surprisingly, I actually really like the dress, even though it’s quite revealing. I would never wear it, but it looks incredible on her. It definitely doesn’t leave any room for flaws though!

bjsquelph on

It’s crossed a line. You don’t have to show everything to be sexy… She has lots of class…. but it’s low class. Cover up young lady.

rj on

the dress is classy and so is she. there is nothing wrong with showing everyone you have a great body.

eldernorm on

I say Jamie ROCKS that dress. Nothing shows and a bikini shows much more. Its the suggestion that draws comments.

If you mind is dirty, it takes little to let that come out. Yes the dress is edgy and it could show slightly less, but the Mona Lisa could have done without that “now famous” smile. And then what would you have.

Jamie, it and you look great. Rock on.
