Ana de Armas has wowed fans with her stunning transformation into Hollywood legend Marilyn Monroe in the upcoming Netflix biopic.
The first teaser for Blonde, scheduled to premiere September 23, shows the Cuban actress, 34, sporting blonde hair for the iconic role.
The film is based on Joyce Carol Oates’ best-selling 2000 novel of the same name and was the streaming service’s first NC-17 rating for an original film due to some graphic pornography.
De Armas, who has starred in films like No Time To Die, Knives Out and Deep Water, looks unrecognizable as she plays the 1950s sex symbol.
The Cuban posted a teaser of the film on his Instagram account, which has 6.8 million followers, with the caption: “First look – BLONDE teaser” accompanied by a black heart.
At the beginning of the trailer, she is seen sobbing as she looks in the mirror while putting on makeup and says, “Please come. Don’t leave me.” Her makeup artist tries to reassure her by saying “she’s coming”.
The teaser then switches to De Armas posing in the iconic subway scene from the 1955 hit The Seven Year Itch and scenes from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, filmed in 1953, before Marilyn looked suffering when surrounded by crowds of press and fans.
A slow version of Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend is played throughout the teaser, replaying the first scene of Marilyn in front of the mirror with the makeup artist stating “she’s coming. She’s coming.”
She then smiles as she looks at her reflection in the mirror before smiling, revealing Marilyn’s erratic behavior.
De Armas also shared photos from the film in a separate post and opened up about her and director Andrew Dominik’s vision for the film.

She wrote: “BLONDE. What a beautiful dream!
“Andrew’s ambition was clear from the start – to show a version of Marilyn Monroe’s life through her lens.
“He wanted the world to experience what it really feels like to be not just Marilyn but Norma Jeane.
“I found it to be the most feminist, boldest, unrepentant, and most feminist story of hers I’ve ever seen.”
