Ana de Armas gave an ode to Marilyn Monroe at the Venice Film Festival

She gives iconic.

Ana de Armas gave a subtle nod to Marilyn Monroe, who she portrays in upcoming biopic Blonde at the Venice Film Festival this week.

While promoting director Andrew Dominik’s film, the 34-year-old actress arrived at the festival in black Gianvito Rossi pumps and a royal blue Louis Vuitton number, her micro shorts reminiscent of Monroe’s, Vogue reported.

The blonde icon, who became Hollywood’s sex epitome in the 1950s, was known for often sporting the pinup-inspired Daisy Dukes. While de Armas’ shorts were slightly longer, they still brought Monroe’s classic style up to date.

De Armas, who was born in Cuba, delivered another ode to Monroe in Venice when she blew a kiss to the crowd – a gesture almost identical to Marilyn’s way of greeting fans.

Despite the A-list backlash the “Knives Out” actress received for her casting — namely, critics spit on her “bad” accent — the Monroe estate defended her casting for the film, which is based on the novel by Joyce Carol Oates from 2000.

Marc Rosen, president of entertainment at Authentic Brands Group, which owns the Marilyn Monroe Estate, said de Armas had “big shoes to fill.”

“From the trailer alone, it looks like Ana was a great casting choice as she captures Marilyn’s glamour, humanity and vulnerability. We can’t wait to see the film in its entirety,” he said.

Even Brad Pitt, whose company Plan B is producing the film, called de Armas “phenomenal” in the role.

“It’s a difficult dress to fill,” he said of the film. “It took 10 years. It wasn’t until we found Ana that we were able to get it across the finish line.”

Blonde debuts on Netflix on September 28th.
