Ana de Armas in Louis Vuitton at the 2023 BAFTAs: tacky, cheap or fun?

For a few years now, Louis Vuitton has been making special pieces for Ana de Armas. She’s getting paid as an LV brand ambassador, and they clearly love the association. Usually, I’m surprised by how good the LV stuff looks on Ana. This is not one of those times. At last night’s BAFTAs, Ana got the worst LV out of all of the designer’s looks. This pale pink, boob-ruffled thing looks so f–king cheap. Ugh, poor Ana.

Sophie Turner is also a big Louis Vuitton brand ambassador. While her BAFTA dress wasn’t my particular jam, it seems like this is her style and she looked good/fine.

Cynthia Erivo in Louis Vuitton. I love metallic dresses and I think bronze is an underrated color for a red carpet, so I actually like this a lot. It would have been so much cuter without that one f–ked up shoulder though.

HoYeon Jung in LV. A little bit plain, but I get what she was going for – Audrey Hepburn simplicity, a simple ballgown and minimal styling. It works.

    Maybe someone at LV really hated Blond?

      My vote is to stop making gorgeous women look like they are stuffed in a sausage casing. If you can’t dress Ana de Armas, you are a failure as a human being, and I know zero about fashion. I can make sausage, from scratch, and that is what this looks like.

      • Sugarhere says:

        I first looked at the photographs and thought the dress Ana de Armas is wearing, is lovely. I love that top part with the blush pink. There’s something early 19th century upper-class lady: I can picture a Vanderbilt woman wearing this in the afternoon, out of sheer boredom.

        I even downloaded the pics. Then, I read the article: I have cheap taste in clothing 😿😭

    I just have to know how these women are not freezing in what I imagine are cold auditoriums while wearing sleeveless dresses??

  3. SAS says:

    HoYeon Jung is perfection as always.

    I feel like Sophie Turner has come out of a really bad style year or two (understandable!) and I love seeing her really work it again.

    Poor Ana.

    • CourtneyB says:

      Doesn’t look like it’ll be covered here but HoYeon, and Ana, we’re on the cover of the VF Hollywood issue.

      • SAS says:

        The Hollywood cover was covered here! HoYeon is such a bad ass. And even though the Marilyn film was trash (I didn’t see it), I have a soft spot for Ana for some reason.

    • Nem says:

      All the actresses but ana have been given dresses who flattered already tiny waists. This silk number has a weird bosom cut and the middle part isn’t nice to the tummy of a slim person.
      a lot of women have to starve themselves for these occasions as couture houses and stylists won’t help them to look their best .

    • FHMom says:

      I thought Sophie was Emily Blunt. I can’t make up my mind about the dress, but it does flatter her.

  4. EBS says:

    I think Cynthia Erivo makes everything she wears better, just by the way she wears it. She is so fabulous.

    • QuiteContrary says:

      The color is divine on her, too.

      And HoYeon looks beautiful.

      But that Ana de Armas dress looks like Molly Ringwald made it in her bedroom from an old nightgown.

  5. dlc says:

    Ana’s hair and makeup look beautiful, but yeah, the dress sucks.

  6. Rosa says:

    Anna needs a darker colour. Sophie needs a lighter colour. Cynthia and Jung are perfection.

  7. Kate says:

    Ana’s dress is boring but she makes it work somehow. She looks perfect from the neck up.
    HoYeon looks stunning but that dress looks heavy.
    Cynthia Erivo looks like a hot mess, sorry.

  8. MoBiMom says:

    Yikes…. was there some sort of hideous outfit competition going on, that only some folks knew about?

  9. Eurydice says:

    Ana’s dress looks flammable.

  10. HeyKay says:

    dress #3 and #4 are interesting.
    AdA looks beautiful, but the top of her dress looks like frilly oven mittens over her breasts.

  11. Beach Dreams says:

    Looks like one of those vintage nightgowns. I’m not totally against the dress that could pass for a nightgown look, but you have to be very particular about the cut and style. This one looks awful.

  12. Kirsten says:

    Ana’s dress would probably be better in a more vibrant color, but honestly I like all of these.

  13. one of the marys says:

    Cynthia looks amazing and the styling matches the dress. Total badass

  14. Emmi says:

    Ana is such a gorgeous woman, it takes some effort to make her look this fug. The shade is way off, the whole thing looks so unflattering. Cynthia Erivo and HoYeon Jung look great though.

  15. Sass says:

    Ana looks uncomfortable. Cynthia is the only one who is fully pulling her LV off.

  16. Saschafrom76 says:

    I detest what she is wearing, but there is a certain set of women in LA who are all about these ugly dresses (that also highlight your tiny belly I don’t get any of it) they look like thrift shop slips to me, but to each their own

    • Thelma says:

      But that’s the tragedy,..the dress actually is unflattering and makes her look like she has a big tummy. How can LV make her look so bad? Also I think her makeup/lipstick is too dark for that dress.

  17. Belspethen says:


    Why do fashion houses send out this horrific pieces in public? Is the model not selling? Pettiness? Stylists not being given choices? I’m baffled how you can be a brand ambassador in clearly ill fitting clothing.
