Blanca Blanco put on an eye-popping display while attempting to soak up the sun in Malibu this week.
The 38-year-old actress suffered a major wardrobe oops during a photo shoot in which she donning a tiny yellow thong bikini, which featured a racy split on top. While strutting for the camera, she failed to notice that the bottom of one of her breasts was in full view. And that didn’t stop paparazzi from snapping away.
Despite the wardrobe malfunction, it was business as usual for Blanco, who continued parading along the sand and struck a number of poses that flaunted her assets.
Blanco seems to be in good spirits these days. The star, who is known for her risqué, head-turning ensembles on the red carpet, told Fox News in early January that she was nervous about attending the 2019 Golden Globes after sparking backlash last year for her infamous red dress.
“I did feel anxiety about showing up at the Golden Globes but at the same time, I attended because making a positive outcome in a stressful situation is stronger than the alternative,” Blanco told Fox News exclusively. “I will not allow fear to interfere with my decision-making as I don’t want to develop unhealthy habits — instead I faced and accepted the fear and will continue to grow.”
“I am a strong believer that when life throws you lemons, you make lemonade,” added Blanco. “Life is so fragile one needs to keep focus and move forward. I felt honored to be part of the Golden Globes again this year and happy to support the outstanding and talented women and the many actresses that I admire in this great business.
Blanco attended this year’s Golden Globes wearing a hot pink shoulder-baring gown by Christophe Gillarme alongside her boyfriend, actor John Savage.
For last year's ceremony, instead of stepping out in black to keep the spotlight on the sexual harassment scandals plaguing the film industry, Blanco opted to wear a bright red gown with a thigh-high slit and a plunging neckline. She later told The Hollywood Reporter that her choice cost her death threats and “tons of hate mail.”
“I’ve always done my own thing, but I didn’t think it would be a big deal for me to wear a red dress to the Golden Globes last year,” she admitted to the publication. “From what I had heard, only the nominees were going to wear black, and I thought it would be silly for me to show up in black.”
“Atria Couture made my dress,” she added. “I wanted to stand strong and I felt so honored to be there, but what happened after I walked the red carpet was crazy. Photos of me went viral, I became a trending topic on Twitter and I got death threats and tons of hate mail.”
Blanco said she had no idea she would get slammed for wearing red instead of black.
“I support [Time's Up] — it had nothing to do with not supporting the cause,” she explained. “It was incredible to see all the courageous women come forward over the past year. I take responsibility for wearing color while everyone else wore black.”
Still, Blanco said the bold fashion move only boosted her career. In fact, she still owns the infamous dress.
“Some good things happened,” she said. “My social media following tripled, and my IMDb profile was ranked in the top 30 for several weeks. I was able to stay busy all year, and I did some films and magazine photo shoots.”
