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.
