Ana de Armas blows a kiss while wearing a Louis Vuitton dress.
Ana de Armas proved she could pull off any look when she posed in an absolutely stunning Louis Vuitton dress in a photo posted to Instagram. Viewers can see the Blade Runner 2049 actress in a beautiful cream-colored dress bending low to blow a kiss to her adoring fans. The gorgeous fishtail dress hugs the Blonde star’s every curve, accentuating her amazing figure.
The photos were taken as Ana de Armas got ready for the 95th Academy Awards, which were held last Sunday. The actress, looking her absolute best for the awards, had every reason to be excited that day. She was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for her stunning performance as Marilyn Monroe in the film Blonde. The film follows a quasi-biographical look into the infamous career of Marilyn Monroe. The psychological drama was met with mixed reviews. While fans and critics alike praised Ana de Armas’ masterful performance, others were uncertain about director Andrew Dominik’s take on the star’s life.
Many felt the film played too much into Marilyn Monroe’s life as a sex symbol and didn’t humanize her the way a biographical film should have. Critics and fans alike denounced the film for how it depicts women’s reproductive health and how it portrayed Marilyn Monroe having an abortion and miscarriage. Whether you loved the film or hated it, there was no denying it was a stellar performance from Ana de Armas worthy of her nomination.
For Ana de Armas to embody the larger-than-life figure that is Marilyn Monroe, she had a lot of work to do. Portraying Marilyn Monroe was a starkly different type of role than the actress is used to. Appearing in films like Knives Out and No Time to Die, the actress is much more accustomed to higher-intensity action. Trying to take on the persona of Marilyn Monore was further complicated by Ana de Armas’ past. Growing up in Cuba, Marilyn Monroe wasn’t a pop culture icon she was exposed to growing up. The star didn’t know of her significance until taking on the role in Blonde.
She wasn’t prepared for the troubled life Marilyn Monroe had and it was something that stuck with her long after filming. Having to embody the infamous starlet, Ana de Armas also felt her loneliness. Marilyn Monroe often felt like she had to upkeep her iconic image for fans, even though it meant losing herself in the process. Embodying the star and her life allowed Ana de Armas to feel those same emotions. Having to travel to London and continue work on the movie No Time to Die helped shake her out of the funk. The actress keeps a busy schedule and has a few projects in the works to look forward to.
