sandra bullock bra the heat london gi Sandra Bullock: Bra showing under dress heats up 'The Heat' premiere

Sandra Bullock showed her bra when attending the premiere of “The Heat.”

Considering the fashion choices made by many celebrities when walking the red carpet, it’s a surprise that anyone would even notice Bullock’s bra showing under her dress. Maybe just the act of showing a bra is a big deal these days.

Bullock was in London for that city’s premiere of “The Heat” at the Curzon Mayfair theatre in London. The revealing dress was a black silk gown from the Victoria Beckham collection. Its backless design made the underlying black-lace bra (possibly an integral part of the dress) fully visible.

The result of this dress — paired with stiletto shows and loose hair — brought a little more sexiness than Bullock, a mother to a toddler, usually goes for.

Why did Bullock choose to go the sultry route for her “Heat” red carpet? Maybe it’s a new fashion direction for the actress. Maybe she really liked the dress. Maybe Bullock wanted to ensure that “The Heat,” a rare comedy starring two women (Bullock and co-star Melissa McCarthy), got plenty of attention.

Whatever the reason, people are indeed paying attention now.
