At last night's "Ides of March" premiere in Los Angeles, while Evan Rachel Wood and Ryan Gosling suited up, Marisa Tomei opted for a less conventional ensemble.
The actress wore an interesting deep crimson dress featuring leather side panels and a center panel made of chiffon. The effect was, how do we put this... a little loincloth-y.
Don't get us wrong -- Tomei looked gorgeous, with her barely made-up face and a fantastic ombre hairstyle.
But we can't wrap our minds around the frock, which reminds us more and more of a gladiator's outfit the more we stare at it.
Take a look at the dress from a variety of angles below -- what do you think?
