Actress Famke Janssen looks amazing posing in this stylish latex dress on a Jill Greenberg Photo shoot. Yeah, she is not only amazing in dressing style, but also in her preference for film acting.
After retiring from modelling in the early 1990s, Janssen had guest roles on several television series, including a starring role in the 1992 Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “The Perfect Mate”, acting as empathic metamorph Kamala, opposite Patrick Stewart, with whom she later starred in the X-Men film series.
That same year, Janssen was offered the role of Jadzia Dax in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, but turned it down to pursue film roles. Her first film role was alongside Jeff Goldblum in the 1992 film Fathers & Sons.
In 1995, Janssen appeared in Pierce Brosnan’s first James Bond film, GoldenEye, as femme fatale Xenia Onatopp. She also appeared in Lord of Illusions with Scott Bakula, who later portrayed Capt. Jonathan Archer of the chronologically first Starship Enterprise.
In an attempt to fight against typecasting after her Bond girl performance, Janssen began seeking out more intriguing support roles, appearing in John Irvin’s City of Industry, Woody Allen’s Celebrity, Robert Altman’s The Gingerbread Man, and Ted Demme’s Monument Ave.
Denis Leary, her co-star in Monument Ave., was impressed by how easily she blended in, initially not recognizing her as she was already in character. In the late 1990s, she also appeared in The Faculty, Rounders, Deep Rising, and House on Haunted Hill.
In addition, Janssen had a prominent role in the second season of the popular TV series Nip/Tuck, as the seductive and manipulative life coach Ava Moore, which earned her Hollywood Life’s Breakthrough Artist of the Year Award. She reprised her role in the final two episodes of the series.
In 2007, she starred in Turn the River, for which she was awarded the Special Recognition Best Actress Award at the Hamptons International Film Festival. The following year, she starred in Luc Besson’s Taken.

What she shows to us now is an inner ambition in career, just as the latex dress she wears—makes people fascinated.
