If Maggie Q wanted to guarantee that she’d be noticed at the premiere of the highly anticipated thriller, Divergent, she did the right thing…. Maggie walked the red carpet – posed seductively, and flaunted the fact that she was going commando! That’s right, Ms. Q was sans panties. Maggie Q is not the star of the movie, but Maggie was certainly the star of the red carpet at the premiere.
In the film, Maggie plays the role of Tori, admittedly a minor character. Is there any type of red carpet ettiquite in Hollywood that resembles the common custom embraced by women at weddings: you aren’t supposed to outshine the bride. Here, Maggie is getting much more attention than any of Divergent’s female leads. It appears that Maggie was paying homage to Elizabeth Hurley and the iconic Versace safety pin dress worn by Hurley that catapulted her to instant stardom.
Hollywood Life offered this critique of Maggie’s mini-dress:
A slip would have covered up with sexy cutouts and underwear would have just looked strange, so we think Maggie made a bold yet smart choice. She kept her makeup and hair very minimal, making sure the dress got all the attention it deserved!
EOnline also gave Maggie a “thumbs up” for her peek-a-boo dress, describing it as such:
Maggie Q showed up to the Divergent movie premiere in Los Angeles wearing an ultra-sexy black dress that revealed her bare bod (and lack of undergarments) down her side. The risky look was a win for the 34-year-old Nikita star, who made it work by keeping everything else very minimal so that all eyes were on her cut-outs. Mission accomplished.
While Maggie was busy posing to the side, to show off her lack of undies, she wasn’t the only star to walk the red carpet at the premiere, even if she did steal the most attention. Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslett, and Ashley Judd also wowed the onlookers.
As reported by Us Magazine, Woodley, who stars as heroine Tris, wore a one-shoulder gold Elie Saab Couture gown for the big premiere. The gown did feature a high slit, but not nearly as revealing as Maggie’s ensemble. Winslet wore Christian Louboutin shoes, and accessorized the look with Anna Khori jewels and an Alexander McQueen bag. Ashley Judd, who plays Tris’ mother Natalie, also wowed on the carpet in a long blue Elie Saab gown with a sexy plunging neckline. The 45-year-old actress wore a bright red lipstick, Dana rebecca Designs bracelet, and dazzling Martin Katz jewelry.
That’s a wrap for the fashion review for today folks! What did you think of the teeny-weeny dress Maggie Q wore at the event? It took nerves of steel and a securely fastened dress to pull off the “no panties” look as well as Maggie did. Did you like the dress, or did Maggie Q go too far?
