Sophia Bush Nails Subtly Sexy Style With These 11 Sultry Looks

It may have taken me a few years to truly appreciate the greatness that is Sophia Bush's One Tree Hill character Brooke Davis, but it didn't take me nearly as long to recognize that the star is definitely one to watch on the red carpet. And with her envious curves and gorgeous face, it would be easy for the Chicago PD actress to go all sexy all the time. Fortunately, Bush has proven again and again that her fashion sense is much more multifaceted, thanks to her penchant for wearing styles that — while certainly seductive — are equally sweet and sophisticated. So to celebrate the talented, lovely, and refreshingly honest star's 32nd birthday, let's take a look back at 11 times that Bush rocked a subtly sexy style.

Everything about this look reads soft and sweet, from the casual waves and pink lip to the lacy Katharine Kidd number. The one thing that keeps it from going too delicate: The sexy slivers of skin peeking through the sheer overlay.

From the front, this color-blocked number may be a little basic. But turn it around, and you’ve got one chic and sultry ensemble.

There’s something insanely sleek about the star’s perfectly fitting Escada number (and I’m guessing it has something to do with that seductive nude underlay).

Bush manages to make this leather crop-top combo from Camilla and Marc look totally casual-chic and not one bit on-the-nose sexy (and in this case, that’s a good thing).

Talk about a bombshell! This Cushnie Et Ochs number may be one of Bush’s sexiest to date, thanks to its curve-hugging fit and off-the-shoulder detailing.

With her sheer, black Fleur du Mal number and super-sophisticated low ponytail, I can definitely see why Bush was named one of Maxim’s Hot 100.
