Watch This Style: “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” by Marilyn Monroe & Ana de Armas!


The talk of the town is Blonde, starring Ana de Armas & directed by Andrew Dominik. While there’s so much style to write about outside of this film & despite the controversy surrounding the film’s NC-17-rated scenes, I’m a little obsessed with it.

Ana’s performance is immaculate & most critics agreed that she is luminous. Recently, the actress shared her experience preparing for the role, as well as the famed “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” dance number from Marilyn Monroe’s 1953 smash hit Gentleman Prefer Blondes.

View the video below, along with Ana’s version for Blonde & the original performance that’s been copied by so many movies, television shows, music videos, & other performances in recent decades.

What do you think of Ana’s interpretation? Have you seen either film? What’s your favorite Marilyn Monroe moment? For more stylish posts, check out: cozy fleece separates from Target, the best new fall top for a variety of occasions, & a fashion flashback with Naomi Watts! Happy Styling!
