Ana de Armas sparkles in sequins at Hollywood ‘Blonde’ premiere


Sequins are a woman’s finest buddy.

Ana de Armas couldn’t be missed at the Los Angeles premiere of her upcoming Marilyn Monroe film, “Blonde,” on Tuesday, dressed in a silver sequined Louis Vuitton halter robe.

The neckline would possibly’ve been a nod to Monroe, who wore an iconic white halter gown in 1955’s “The Seven Year Itch.”

De Armas, 34, beforehand channeled the late Hollywood icon in one other plunging Louis Vuitton look — a pink pleated robe — at the Venice Film Festival premiere of the flick final week.

Based on Joyce Carol Oates’ bestselling guide by the identical title, Netflix’s “Blonde” was given a controversial NC-17 score and hits the streaming service September 28.

In the film, de Armas slips into spot-on recreations of a few of Monroe’s most memorable outfits, together with a sequence of platinum wigs (which required her to put on a bald cap beneath).

And the celebs appeared to have aligned in extra methods than one, because the “Knives Out” actress believes Monroe was current on set.

“I think she was happy. She would also throw things off the wall sometimes and get mad if she didn’t like something,” De Armas advised reporters at the Venice Film Festival. “Maybe this sounds very mystical, but it is true. We all felt it.”

She added, “I truly believe that she was very close to us. She was with us.”

The movie’s director, Andrew Dominik, agreed that he felt her presence, telling reporters, “It definitely took on elements of being like a seance.”

Perhaps Marilyn’s spirit was on Tuesday’s carpet, too.
