Celebrities were wowed by actress Andrea Brillantes‘ pictures for her pre-debut photoshoot where she dressed as beauty goddess Venus as seen in the popular Renaissance painting.
The upcoming debutante on Sunday uploaded four pictures in anticipation of her 18th birthday on March 12 and said that the countdown towards her big day begins “now.”
Brillantes’ photoshoot was inspired by Italian painter Sandro Botticelli‘s famous masterpiece “The Birth of Venus” which depicts the Roman goddess of love and beauty arriving at the shore after her birth. She is described in mythology as being born “out of sea.”
In the painting, Venus is standing on a giant scallop shell while a young woman is about to cover her with a flowery mantle.
Meanwhile, Brillantes’ depiction of the goddess has earned more than 633,000 likes on the photo-sharing platform as of this writing.
