A day when Florence Pugh decides to wear head-to-toe Valentino is a good day.
Over the weekend, the Don’t Worry Darling star stepped out during Paris Fashion Week while dressed in a luxurious sheer set from the Italian fashion house. The mesh co-ord included a completely see-through cropped collared top and a matching maxi skirt, both of which bore a glittering sequined design.
She finished the look with a pair of strappy metallic bronze heels and a white iteration of the Valentino Garavani One Stud Handbag.
This isn’t the first time Pugh has made a showstopping statement while wearing Valentino.
Attending the brand’s fall/winter 2022 haute couture show this past July, the actress wowed in a hot pink tulle dress. She wore the sheer gown with no bra, quickly drawing both praise and controversy from people online.
Pugh spoke about the now viral appearance in an interview for Harper’s BAZAAR‘s September 2022 cover story, explaining that she and designer Pierpaolo Piccioli decided together to remove the inner lining of the dress. “I was comfortable with my small breasts,” she said. “And showing them like that—it aggravated [people] that I was comfortable.”
She went on to describe her own reaction to the attention the look received. “It was just alarming, how perturbed they were,” Pugh said. “They were so angry that I was confident, and they wanted to let me know that they would never wank over me. Well, don’t.”
The outrage over the transparent dress even reached her grandmother. “I went to see my gran, and she goes, ‘So what’s all of this business about your nipples then?'” Pugh recalled. The actress showed her photos of the outfit. “She gasped,” she said. “Because the dress was so beautiful.”
