Marisa Tomei Wore Red Leather To 'The Ides Of March' Premiere (PHOTOS, POLL)

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?
