Ana de Armas beamed from ear to ear as she was mobbed by fans on Monday night before filming of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
The 34-year-old actress of Cuban descent was promoting her impending role as a fictionalized Marilyn Monroe in the upcoming dark drama Blonde, which is adapted from Joyce Carol Oates’s classic book of the same name.
The heroine of “Knives Out” stood out in the throng as she posed for photos because of the sparkling sequins that covered her elegant three-piece charcoal suit.

Ana wore the matching vest that matched her double-breasted jacket and pants openly.
A pair of matching wide-legged grey trousers almost touched the ground; Ana de Armas wore no shirt beneath the vest.
The 5ft 6in beauty donned a pair of black, pointy-toed stilettos to elongate her height, and she tied back her long, brown hair into a ponytail.
The star of Blade Runner 2049 flashed her perfectly made-up face, complete with a slick of scarlet over her lips, for her adoring admirers.
In the film Blonde, Ana de Armas plays Marilyn Monroe, the iconic Hollywood starlet.
Rated NC-17, the film delves into the actress’s spiral into drug usage and her history of abuse at the hands of powerful men.

It stars Adrien Brody as her third and last husband, playwright Arthur Miller (also known as The Playwright), with Bobby Cannavale as her second husband, ex-athlete Joe DiMaggio (also known as The Ex-Athlete).
The film is not a straightforward biography or account of Monroe’s life; the book on which it is based makes some important changes.
While the film has been met with mixed reviews from reviewers, Ana de Armas’s performance—in which she is shirtless for long stretches—has been universally praised and has generated Oscar talk.
The film is directed by Andrew Dominik, who previously worked with Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck on the critically acclaimed Western drama The Assassination of Jessie James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007) and then reunited with Pitt on the neo-noir crime picture Killing Them Softly (2012).
His newest picture made its international debut at this month’s Venice Film Festival, and on September 16 it hit New York City cinemas.
On September 23, Blonde will play in additional theatres, and on September 28, it will make its streaming debut on Netflix.
