Ana de Armas will surely be stepping out in some high-glam looks when it comes time to promote the Marilyn Monroe biopic Blonde, but right now she’s making the press rounds for Netflix thriller The Gray Man, and given that it’s a spy flick, she’s appropriately suited up. On a recent red carpet in Berlin, the stunned in a pantsuit….
But it’s her Mia Thermopolis–esque outfit in London that’s got us raiding our wardrobes for blazers. Stepping out for an engagement at a radio station, de Armas wore a navy blue skirt and jacket from Louis Vuitton. We’d hazard a guess this is wool, with what looks like a gold zipper on the side of the skirt for a bit of edge. A plain white button-down shirt with a blue knit tie and black leather ankle boots complete the look, with just a touch of a cat eye and no jewelry. So young and fun!
For comparison, here’s post-makeover Mia in the same:
Okay, the skirt is different; whatever—you get it!
Preppy icon Blair Waldorf would be proud of this look on de Armas, but she would be even prouder that mere hours later the actor stepped out yet again in an entirely different outfit, playing Silver Woman to the Gray Man.
I don’t say this lightly: Step on my neck, Ana de Armas. The slicked-back hair? The chain-mail-looking dress? The eyebrows!?
If you’re looking to cop de Armas’s glow, first things first: Skip the contouring. She told us that’s a beauty trend she’s never embraced. “I’m not a big fan of contouring. I skip that. Sometimes it feels like too much. With social media and all these filters, people associate that with trying to match that in real life. Sometimes I like to be a less-is-more kind of person,” the actor said, adding that her beauty must-haves are “lip balm, like pure cocoa butter. Several of them, in fact, because I just keep losing them. That’s the best thing you can do for your lips. Estée Lauder’s are great as well because they are super moisturizing and have all different colors. And secondly, a face mist. I love those. And then hand lotion.”
