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!
