Ana de Armas Pays Tribute To Marilyn Monroe
Representing In Style
Samantha McMillen styled Ana for her big day. The dress is a gorgeous shade of bubble gum pink with a plunging V-neck, tie waist, and an A-line pleated skirt. The exact shade of pink was strikingly similar to Marilyn Monroe's pink dress in the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes when she sings Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend. Similarly, the pleats and neckline of Ana's pink gown were inspired by Marilyn Monroe's infamous white dress scene from the film The Seven Year Itch. A high-octane diamond necklace and cuff bracelet completed the look, indicating that Marilyn would have approved of her style.
Creativity At Its Peak
Angelica Hicks, 29, has piqued the interest of thousands of fashionistas worldwide by creating low-cost versions of high-fashion looks. She's recently donned some of the most talked-about red carpet looks, including Taylor Swift's silvery VMA mini and high fashion, as well as
Ana de Armas. Hicks' outfit was stunning, with sheer pink trash can liners used to mimic the original's fabric. Hicks draped some bags around her neck, allowing them to dangle to the floor, then another around her waist to cinch things in.
She was never one to overlook a detail, so she created her choker and bracelet out of pear mesh sleeves. The bauble hanging from the necklace was a garlic clove.
TikTok Fans Can't Stop Singing Her Praise
With over 2.6 million views and 137,000 likes on TikTok, this is her famous look. Several comments praised the TikToker for her creativity. Some people thought the TikTok version was "better" than the designer version, while others thought her choice of material made the dress look more "futuristic" and "original."
