She plays the queen of the sea in the hotly anticipated Aquaman film.
And Amber Heard appeared to take style inspiration from her character as she attended the star-studded world premiere for the movie at Cineworld in Leicester Square,
Clad in a seaweed green gown and swimming cap style headwear, the 32-year-old actress was a vision of beauty as she stormed the blue carpet alongside her co-stars Jason Momoa and Dolph Lundgren.
Dazzling: Amber Heard appeared to take style inspiration from her character as she attended the star-studded world premiere for the movie at Cineworld in Leicester Square, London on Monday
Showcasing her stunning physique, Amber’s gown featured a plunging neckline which teased her ample cleavage and cut out detailing at the waist to accentuate her slender frame.
The billowing skirt also featured a dazzling train that trailed behind her as she glided across the carpet.
A large cut out along the back showed off her tattoos – a quote from the Chilean poet Pablo Neruda ‘te amo como se aman ciertas cosas oscuras, secretamente, entre la sombra y el alm’, which translates to ‘I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul.’
Amber’s look was completed with an intricately embellished cap that concealed her glossy blonde locks, whilst a slick of scarlet lipstick lined her plump pout.
