The Saviors of Summer, Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas, haven’t been papped together in what seems like months but has actually only been a couple of weeks. However, that means it’s been roughly seven BenAna years. As we know, a lot can happen in a single BenAna. Children are met and paraded, houses are toured and rejected, stunts are stunted, masks are lost and found and gallons of Dunkin’s are drunkin’. And so, in the span of seven BenAnas, the unthinkable happened—Ana went and found herself a new bitch. Over the weekend Ana posted a picture of her newest family member on Instagram, a little dog named Salsa.
Meet the newest member of the BenAna clan!
Ana also shared some shots of her dog children in her stories. @AnadeArmasUpdates says that Salsa is a Havenese, the national dog of Ana’s home country of Cuba.

And because I believe Ana knows exactly what she’s doing, I’m pretty sure the header photo there is a sly reference to this iconic photo taken by Slim Aarons of 1950s Austrian starlet Mara Lane. Slim was famous for documenting the lifestyles of the rich and fabulous.

“This is the voice of God!” If not quite a deity, Slim Aarons – who would boom this down from high on a shoot – was responsible for a heaven of sorts. Born on this day in 1916, the photographer chronicled an evolving high society, from royalty to rock stars, across six decades. With a lens looking for pleasure and beauty after WWII combat, Aarons‘ sympathetic portrayal of a privileged world, as well as his good company, afforded him elite access. Pictured here on top of a Las Vegas ladder truck (swipe for the resulting picture), the American created a rich, warm reality from the most fantastic of places. __ 📷: Slim Aarons photographs actress Mara Lane at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas, 1954 | Slim Aarons/Getty Images __ #slimaarons #highsociety #maralane #jetset #vintageglamour #townandcountrymag #holidaymagazine #lasvegas #sandshotel #poolside #photoshoot #behindthescenesphotoshoot #photographerlife #richandfamous #masterofphotography #gettyarchive
