It takes a very special person to outshine a Nordic god, his evil brother and dozen of Hollywood stars, but Jaimie Alexander managed to do it with a jaw-dropping dress.
At the Thor: The Dark World premiere at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, the 29-year-old actress stepped out on the red carpet in a dress that revealed more than just her good side.
The black floor-length cutaway down offered bystanders a good look at Alexander's toned and shapely body by featuring a sheer panel that started at her neckline and plunged down to her toes.

Is this the most daring red carpet dress EVER? Jaimie Alexander didn't hold back with her outfit choice for the premiere of Thor: The Dark World at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles on Monday night
By the hammer of the gods! Jaimie ensured that jaws dropped as she walked the red carpet in the daring dress
From the back, there was a second sheer panel that exposed a great deal of her...assets, including the actress' choice in undergarments: nothing.
The curved cuts of the dress covered only the essentials (anything that would get Ms. Alexander any type of jail time for indecent exposure), but left little to the imagination.
The risque dress was complimented with an up-do featuring a side-swipe bang and silver feather-shaped earring.

Alexander wore glittery gold stilettos with a pointed toe, which added a few inches to her already impressive five foot nine frame.
The stunning actress shot to fame in Thor but also recently hinted that she could be set to play the role of Wonder Woman - either in a stand-alone film or in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie - after having meetings with Warner Bros. regarding the role.
She told Forbes: 'I would love for DC to put Wonder Woman in one of their upcoming flicks, either in her own movie or Batman vs. Superman, or just something even to introduce her.

Flash some flesh in a mesh dress like Jaimie's

Dare to bare!
Jaimie Alexander's rather risqué dress did precisely what it was intended to do - to make us sit up and notice her. And whilst we don't feel quite up to the challenge of flashing this much flesh, we can still appreciate the couture creation of this piece (can we even call it a dress?), which is by Azzaro. But add a nude slip and we're sold in a second.
Daring cut outs are a signature style of Azzaro, who count amongst their celebrity fans Nicole Richie, Mila Kunis, Kate Moss and Natalie Portman. But even for them, this is taking things to a whole new level - the mesh panels are strategic at the front but just plain shameless from the back!
Gwyneth Paltrow set the standard when she sashayed down the red carpet in an Antonio Beradi dress that left nothing to the imagination at the Iron Man 3 premiere back in April, so now it seems nothing is off limits.
Since Jaimie's dress is haute and hot off the SS’14 runway, it isn't yet available to buy, giving you plenty of time to get in shape in the meantime. But if you need no time - you've spent all year honing and toning in preparation for the beach, and then before you know it, summer has gone - and are looking for an excuse to get your bikini body out, this could be the way forward.
Or for a more subtle approach, there is inspiration to be found in Jaimie's dress. We have rounded up the best mesh options out there right now, and the only question is how much will you dare to bare?

'Being in the comic book world, we know a lot of the same people at DC and Marvel, so we hear a lot of things, but it's all speculation right now. But I would absolutely love that.'
