In her first public appearance since news of her messy breakup with husband Jesse James, actress Sandra Bullock wore a skintight black leather dress from Elie Saab’s Fall 2010 collection.

Bullock made the surprise appearance during Spike TV’s “Guys Choice Awards”, accepting the Troops Choice Award for Entertainer of the Year while surrounded by some of the members of the military who voted for her.

Bullock has worn Elle Saab on numerous occasions, including the Oscar’s this year, where she collected an Academy Award for her role in “The Blind Side”.
