Have you ever wondered what a real-life 2017 superhero would look like — other than, you know, Michelle Obama? Krysten Ritter just served up a pretty compelling answer to that question at Monday evening's New York City premiere of "Marvel's The Defenders." The actress looked every bit the part of a dressed-up IRL Jessica Jones, wearing a sparkly, one-shouldered, cutout dress from Julien Macdonald's Fall 2017 collection. The look was put together by celebrity stylist Ilaria Urbinati, whose killer client lineup also includes Donald Glover, Rami Malek, Jenny Slate, Riz Ahmed, Nina Dobrev, Chris Evans, Tom Hiddleston, Bradley Cooper and Shailene Woodley.

Ritter leaned into the color theme of the evening (red dress, red carpet, red Netflix logos aplenty) by also wearing a sharp, perfectly painted fire-engine-red lip, a shade that perfectly matched the dress. (Makeup artist Nick Barose, who was behind the look, confirmed on Instagram that the exact product he used was Lancôme Color Design Matte Lip Crayon in Oui, Monsieur, should you feel the need to immediately scoop it up for yourself.)

All in all, Ritter's look was one of power and strength (and, let's be honest, general hotness — this is basically the fire emoji in outfit form). It's so good, in fact, that it might even help me finally get over the lingering visions of her character's tragic — SPOILER ALERT: death in "Breaking Bad" — and her other character's even more tragic presence in the most miserable season of "Gilmore Girls." (Season Seven, just skip it, trust me.)
