Last week, Castle stunner Stana Katic stepped out at the 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards with one objective — to show off her amazing legs. It's safe to say her metallic Lela Rose cocktail dress got the job done.

Stana accessorized the look with Dannijo Esme earrings, an Edie Parker Lara clutch, and platform heels by Stuart Weitzman.

Unfortunately, we didn't get to see her classic Kate Beckett waves — Stana pinned her hair back in a double pony tail, most likely to show off the frock's open back.

What do you think of Stana's purple carpet look? Fashion hit or fashion miss?
