Millions of people obsess over the latest red carpet looks. But not many of us would have the guts to try and pull off some of the more risque choices — even if they looked stunning on the actress who wore it!

Well, one woman decided to give it a try. She ordered a sheer cut-out gown from Chinese online retailer Taobao that modeled a dress worn by actress Jaimie Alexander to the 2013 premiere of 'Thor.'

Unfortunately, the reality was not quite up to par when it came to the glamour factor!

Rather than the sleek and smooth design seen in the pictures, the dress turned out to be ill-fitting and unflattering in almost every way! Nonetheless, the customer threw on the frock and snapped a few pictures to post to the site.
