Florence Pugh looked stunning at the Venice Film Festival. The “Don’t Worry Darling” actress dazzled in a black tulle off-the-shoulder Valentino gown for the film’s Venice Film Festival debut on Monday night, seeming unfazed by the controversy surrounding her and director Olivia Wilde.
The shimmering dress, had magnificent split front and balloon-style sleeves. As she walked the red carpet, the sheer overlay, which was covered in both round and star-shaped silver sequins, finished in a sweeping train.
As an alternative to the contentious nipple-baring dress she wore to the Valentino Haute Couture show in, the “Little Women” actress wore a black bandeau bra top and high-waisted boy shorts covered in the same sequin design.
She accessorized her glam gown with black heels that had a bow at the ankle and dramatic feather trim going up her legs. She styled her hair simply in a slicked-back wave.
Pugh, who previously criticized fans for being obsessed with her on-screen sex scenes with Harry Styles, added a lot of Tiffany & Co. dazzle. According to a press statement from the company, she wore a platinum and diamond collar necklace, two sets of diamond earrings, and rings with aquamarine and blue spinel.
The actress debuted yet another Valentino ensemble earlier on Monday for her much awaited arrival in Venice. The all-purple outfit included shorts, a bandeau top, and an overshirt of the same color with no buttons.
Pugh skipped the press briefing for the movie. Wilde, 38, addressed the audience in her place, calling Pugh “a force” and thanking her for making the premiere “despite being in production” for “Dune 2” in Budapest.
“As for all the endless tabloid gossip and noise out there, the internet feeds itself,” Wilde added. “I don’t feel I need to contribute to it.”
