Gina Rodriguez wore a little black dress with a mesh surprise, looks like a badass Bond girl

We can’t say enough about Gina Rodriguez and her always-on-point fashion choices. Whether it’s a statement LBD or a simple, printed long-sleeve dress, Gina always looks comfortable and happy — the two keys to great style.

Attending the Paley Center for Media’s tribute to Hispanic achievements in television in Los Angeles last night, the Jane the Virgin star once again had us cheering on her wardrobe choice: a simple, velvet little black dress from designer Vivian Chan’s forthcoming resort collection.

Paired with a straightened bob and black ankle-strap pumps by Stella Luna, we’ve definitely been taking notes from Gina on how to own a red carpet (should we ever need to).


We’re obsessed with this dress! But wait… you haven’t seen the best part yet: the mesh undergarment Gina let peek out from the sides of her frock!


Did you catch it? Good! Because even occasional Jane the Virgin guest star Eva Longoria seemed to love the subtle, yet sexy, detail.


If you’re chomping at the bit to add a little mesh detail to your next black-tie look, we don’t blame you. Keep scrolling to see some of our picks for mesh bras to wear under low-cut tops and dresses for a totally Gina Rodriguez-approved look.
