Whether you first fell in love with her in Breaking Bad or Jessica Jones, you’ve probably come to associate Krysten Ritter with dark and muted colors. And while we’re hoping to see her put back on that iconic Jessica Jones jacket for an official Disney+ relaunch of her Marvel show, we’re happy to see this sexy star in just about any setting. For example, she recently dropped by the CBS show The Talk, and she wore something her MCU character wouldn’t be caught dead in: a very sexy and very short red dress.

If you’re already a fan of Krysten Ritter (and who isn’t?), the photos and videos she recently posted are a real treat. As great as she looks in a leather jacket and jeans, we really loved seeing her wear a Dolce & Gabbana dress. Of course, she wasn’t dressed up just to look amazing: she was there to promote a show.

Krysten Ritter is currently starring in Love and Death, an HBO Max miniseries that revolves around the true story of Candy Montgomery, a woman accused of taking up an axe and killing her friend Betty Gore back in 1980. Interestingly, fellow Marvel star Elizabeth Olsen plays Montgomery, and Ritter plays one of the character’s friends who starts to clock the strange behavior of Olsen’s otherwise unassuming character.

To help promote the show, Krysten Ritter appeared on The Talk to dish on a number of different topics. There, as her caption indicates, she was happy to get some face time with her old friend (and now show host) Amanda Kloots. Ritter also revealed some secrets of her craft, including the fact that her own aunt Sharon serves as the inspiration for her character in Love and Death.

Krysten Ritter’s Instagram post also helped remind fans that no matter how big this star gets, she is still the relatable girl next door that everyone fell in love with years ago. In addition to geeking out about how breathtaking her dress is, we also see the star pausing in the middle of getting professional makeup to snap some sexy selfies. After all, who among us hasn’t seized upon the right combination of killer outfit and awesome lighting and taken out our phone so we can always remember how good we looked?

The next-to-last photo that she posted may be the sweetest one of all. As her caption indicates, Krysten Ritter was particularly happy to have her son come with her and that he was able to hang out backstage with her. And once she was done promoting her new show, Ritter was able to go backstage and snuggle with him, all while smiling beatifically at the camera.

Incidentally, if you’re still a bit weirded out by seeing the Jessica Jones star in such a bright and “girly” dress, be sure to check out the video at the end. Here, we see Krysten Ritter doing the same thing we always do after a big event: getting out of the fancy clothes and throwing on a comfy old t-shirt. The dark shirt is definitely more of the Jessica Jones aesthetic, and let’s face it: if there is anyone in the MCU that really loves the Sex Pistols, it would be her rebellious heroine.
