Anyone who ever doubted whether or not Cardi B makes bloody moves ought to see what she wore to the Met Gala last night.

The “Please Me” rapper ruled the red carpet at last night’s big event in a massive quilted gown by Thom Browne. She looked stunning, sexy, wondrous, campy (to match the gala’s theme)… she looked like a walking, talking campaign for Kotex.

Cardi B stunned in a massive gown that featured a train and a whole lot of ox-blood-colored dye.

If you didn’t already know, this year’s Met Gala theme was “Camp: Notes on Fashion” which is in the simplest of terms a display of flamboyance and the push of boundaries. No doubt, Cardi B took hold of the reins of this concept and went flying.

Like, if that cape couldn’t take off…

We always knew pads had wings… but we didn’t know they were feminist/ fabulous.

According to Vogue, the rappers gown took 35 people and over 2,000 hours to make. It took 10 people to hold her train for her as she walked the carpet.

And we’re not the only ones who have this theory about Cardi’s theme.

Just about everyone on Twitter is saying she looks like a period dream.

And of course Cardi got some praise for her husband Offset.

The rapper praised his wife for setting fire to the Gala last night.

Or at least the one you wake up to on your period.

Yas girl be the queen who displays her POWER. Literally the bloodiest costume of all time.

Some fans had other theories…

In an interview the gown’s designer KIND of confirmed the period theory.

Brown told Vogue in an interview that he “designed this dress for Cardi specifically because she has the ultimate beauty in a woman’s body, and that is what the dress is about for me: taking advantage of that beauty.”

The James Bond Franchise Has Been Around For Decades But Only Recently Cast Its First Bond Girl

We’ve recently been treated to some more talk about next year’s Bond film, only to find out that our girl Ana de Armas will be gracing us with her presence once more on the big screen! Let’s be real: that’s hella exciting for us fans. But, how much of a true Ana de Armas stan are you? Test your know-how against our list of 23 facts about Ana de Armas.

1. Her birthday is on the 30th of April 1988.

This makes her a Taurus, babes. If you were best friends with her, she’d be the down-to-earth, grounded friend out of the two of you. She’d probably also be the most stubborn, too – but at least you’d know that you can always count on her to pull through for you.

2. She was born and raised in Cuba.

It wouldn’t surprise us if her heart is in Havana – she was raised there. In fact, Ana studied acting at Teatro Nacional de Cubafrom the tender age of 12. She clearly knew she was destined for acting, right from the start!

3. Even if you think you haven’t seen Ana before, you probably have.

Her biggest role to date was in Blade Runner 2049. That’s right, nerds – she played Joi, Officer K’s (Ryan Gosling) holographic girlfriend. Apparently watching the final cut of the film was a hugely emotional experience for Ana, who shed some tears and grabbed a box of tissues once the credits started to roll.

4. She’s been married … and divorced.

Our beloved Ana got married to Spanish model Marc Clotet in 2011. However, it didn’t last long: they split only two short years later. Even though Ana’s been linked to other guys every now and again, it seems that she’s been pretty comfortable living the single life. It wouldn’t surprise us if she said that life’s too busy these days for dating, especially now that Ana’s making a name for herself in Hollywood!

5. Ana made her acting debut in 2006.

We know, we know: 2006 was a long time ago! We don’t blame you if you can’t remember that far back. But, that’s when Ana started her professional acting career, in the film Una rosa de Francia.

6. She has central heterochromia.

Instagram / @ana_d_armas

Don’t worry, as much as it sounds like a deadly disease, it’s not. It’s the technical term for someone with Ana’s eye color: even though both of her eyes are green, they have a brown center. Or more simply, she has hazel eyes!

7. Ana only spoke Spanish before moving to the US.

Instagram / @ana_d_armas

She was so determined to get acting work in the US that she learned English in just two years! If we were a Lady Gaga meme, we’d say Ana is talented, brilliant, incredible, amazing, show-stopping, spectacular – okay, you get the picture.

8. She has Spanish heritage.

Instagram / @ana_d_armas

Because Ana’s grandparents on her mother’s side are Spanish, she has a Spanish passport.

9. The first Bond movie she ever saw was Skyfall.

And she also thinks that Raoul Silva (Javier Bardem) “was the best villain ever”. We agree!

10. Ana has already worked with Daniel Craig before.

Instagram / @ana_d_armas

While the pair are working together on the set of the new Bond film, the two of them have already filmed an upcoming thriller, Knives Out, together. Let’s hope they’re not sick of each other yet!

11. While she likes social media, she thinks deeply about the consequences of using it.

Instagram / @ana_d_armas

As far as Ana is concerned, she believes that everyone should be accountable for what they say on social media, likening interactions on the ‘gram and Twitter to real life. Wise words, indeed!

12. Ana’s first English-speaking role was in the movie Knock Knock.

Instagram / @ana_d_armas

This 2015 flick saw her sharing the spotlight with the notoriously kind Keanu Reeves. Even wilder is the fact that when she got the role, she didn’t speak a lick of English! It was at this stage that she had to really put her head down and hit the books.

13. So far, she’s appeared in 13 movies.

Instagram / @ana_d_armas

But since she’s been such a busy bee, that’s going to change pretty soon! Ana’s already expecting four movies to be released this year alone. And, of course, she also now has the new Bond film on the horizon.

14. She’s really conscious about finding great roles to play.

Instagram / @ana_d_armas

She recently said in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar that, “As a woman and a Latina … I have two separate labels to fight against, but I know I just have to stay strong and true to what I believe in. It’s important not to compromise your work and ideas for the industry and what some might be expecting you to do or recommending you to follow.”

15. Her character in the new Bond film is called Paloma.

Instagram / @ana_d_armas

And that’s all we know, folks. Which is pretty fair – Ana’s been keeping tight-lipped about the role so that nothing is spoiled for us fans!

16. She moved to Spain at the tender age of 18.

Instagram / @ana_d_armas

But nowadays, she tends to split her time between Cuba and Hollywood. Naturally.

17. Ana de Armas isn’t actually her full name.

Instagram / @ana_d_armas

In fact, it’s Ana Celia de Armas Caso. 

18. She’s the star for the latest Campari campaign.

Instagram / @ana_d_armas

What is Campari, you ask? It’s an Italian bitters, made with an infusion of herbs and fruits – and a prestigious brand that’s released its newest short film, Entering Red, with Ana at the center of it. “Wow” doesn’t even begin to cover it.

19. By the time she moved to the US, Ana was already a household name in Cuba.

Instagram / @ana_d_armas

Ana was part of the main cast for a show called El Internado, playing the role of Carolina Leal Solís. While the whole show ran for seven seasons, across 2007 to 2010, Ana had moved on to bigger and better things by the seventh season.

20. If you thought that she is an only child, you’d be wrong!

Instagram / @ana_d_armas

Ana also has a brother.

21. Ana also has a pet dog!

Instagram / @ana_d_armas

That is, she has a pet dog who is a possible contender for the cutest lil animal in the world – and is named Elvis. Even though he looks like just a puppy, Elvis is now over eight years old!

22. She has 1.3 million Insta followers.

Instagram / @ana_d_armas

Are you jealous? We’re jealous. Although it’s definitely well-deserved since her feed is FIRE.

23. She appeared in her first music video only last year.

Check out the official video clip for Orishas’ “Everyday,” and keep your eyes peeled for Ana.Although it’s hard to miss her – she’s the leading lady!
