The dress was stunning with sequins on top and a long, full skirt with a see-through material in a hot pink color.
The Hollywood vet carried a gold clutch purse but her heels could not be seen under the dress. The actress wore her hair up with gold earrings. Days earlier she wore an equally stunning dress, this one all gold. There were sequins on top and the bottom of the skirt was a see-through beige material.
The looker, who lost most of her belongings in the fire, seemed to carry the same gold clutch purse.
Blanco, who’s been with actor John Savage, 69, since 2008, started her trip to the Moroccan country in style, wowing in a thigh-skimming floral frock.
Her stunning dress, which featured cut out detailing around the bust, was adorned with a vibrant floral pattern across her chest and waist. She teamed it with a pair of towering sky-scraper heels, which gave her willowy frame some further inches.
Around her neck she wore an open-ended necklace with gold accents, sporting a matching bracelet on her wrist. Posing against a tiled backdrop, Blanca wore her ombre locks in natural waves and opted for a glamorous coat of make-up including a swipe of black liner.

Moving on: Blanco touched down in Marrakech just days after she returned to her Malibu home which had been severely damaged in the California wildfires, while most of Blanca’s possessions were all destroyed in the fire, she managed to save a few things including her college diploma, some paintings and a director style chair with her name on the back.
She was allowed to return to her home for the first time following the devastating Woolsey Fire just a couple of weeks ago. Speaking to DailyMail she shared her frustration of not being allowed to enter the premises even though there were looters everywhere.
‘We are hoping to be allowed back to Malibu so we can see our place and get closure. I have some hope maybe I show up and some family pictures aren’t burnt,’ she said. ‘In addition, looters in my neighborhood have been an issue – they are everywhere. A neighbor has been securing property with riffles to protect from looters so that’s scary.’

Insurance mentioned we got hit hard in our neighborhood and they are talking rebuilding too – that is hard to digest yet.
‘PCH and Kanan area still has not been open so we are hopeful by this weekend.
She revealed that she had just minutes to pack up their house and wake up John, who was sleeping, to flee the property. The pair got out safe and were also about to save their pet bunny, Star.
The Dog Of Christmas star also added that she thinks they’ll be moving away from Malibu, but may move back after ‘a couple of years’.’I felt trapped and claustrophobic when I was trying to escape so not sure I want to live in Malibu again.
We are considering living in Beverly Hills or Brentwood,’ she dished. ‘Now we are in a hotel in Beverly Hills. John and I have moved to three hotels since Malibu. It’s stressful but lots of hotels do not have a long stay since many evacuees are renting.
Hotels are increasing prices since fires so that is a shame.”For me, I have been having a hard time sleeping and having nightmares. ‘Blanca continued: ‘Finally, in the last two days, I slept four hours straight. Stress level is high but I work every day on reminding myself how lucky I am to be alive and John too and our bunny.’
Blanca is living with fellow actor John Savage, 69’I am aware I can be happy or sad during this situation but I choose happiness. Being optimistic happy help me get through these stages,’ she continued.
‘I want to focus on the solution rather than the problem. It is okay to rebuild a life. We all do it since life is not linear.’
‘John is in good spirits too. His positive attitude is motivating. His stress level is high but every day he works on himself too to maintain calm and being proactive.

”We meditate and take walks to relieve stress and clear our minds. We are going to get a gym membership this weekend since that was our normal morning routine in Malibu- we want to continue with our normal routine.
‘Blanca added: ‘We are both going to be looking for more work. We are not taking time off from this, we will continue with our schedule as planned and of course with self-care being our priority.’
A tough day: Blanca was heading to a meeting in LA when she learned her neighborhood had to be evacuated so she returned home to save her boyfriend John and their bunny’I will reach out to executive producers I know and send my acting resume so I work on booking more films and help rebuild my life.
”My goal next year is to do a studio film in addition to independent films I have been doing. So I will continue to work on that.’I am feeling hopeful. We are beyond thankful for all the people that reached out and provided emotional support. The kindness and sweetness of people during this challenging time is beyond words. Growth and strength are what I am gaining from this experience.’
