Florence Pugh consistently brings something new to the red carpet. And regardless of how risky her outfit selections are, she regularly ranks at the top of several best-dressed lists.

Just recently, the 27-year-old actress commanded attention when she showed up at the BoF 500 Gala during Paris Fashion Week wearing a bewitching sheer gown that was basically a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen.

Showing plenty of flesh, the Don’t Worry Darling actress was braless underneath the see-through black gown with a bikini-style halter-neck bodice primarily made of sheer fabric pieces fastened at the front with a bowtie.

The full, sheer skirt that made up the bottom half of the provocative outfit gave a glimpse of her shapely legs and nude underwear. It was completed with a dramatic cape draping from the halterneck and a flowing train that ran down the red carpet.

Although hidden underneath the voluminous gown, Florence reportedly teetered on a pair of Valentino Spring 2023 Couture satin platform pumps with towering block heels.

Pugh’s evening attire was chosen by Rebecca Corbin-Murray and created exclusively for the Oppenheimer star by Valentino. The celebrity stylist counts Priyank Chopra, Gemma Chan, and Salma Hayek as some of her high-profile clients.

Drawing attention to her decolletage, Florence accessorized with a Schlumberger by Tiffany & Co. Bird on a Rock Pendant necklace in 18k yellow gold and platinum.

It featured a bird adorned with 148 round brilliant diamonds, eight marquise diamonds, and two round pink sapphires set on a 15.95ct. cushion-cut citrine.

Injecting her signature edgy flair to the dramatic look, Florence wore an embellished septum ring and adorned her black manicured hands with a chunky gemstone ring.

She then had her platinum tresses slicked back away from her face by Peter Lux, showcasing her gleaming Maria Tash Diamond earrings, including the $295 Pearl Drape Threaded Stud Earring and the Diamond Star Threaded Stud Earrings in 4.5mm and 5.5mm.

Alex Babsky, meanwhile, coordinated Florence’s beauty look with her ensemble. He applied dark smokey eyeshadow and mascara, completing her glam with a swipe of nude pink lipstick.

Florence Pugh is undeniably one of the hottest actresses in Hollywood today, thanks to her excellent on-screen work and impressive sense of style, which frequently mirrors her fun and fearless personality.

In 2022, she went viral for her bold appearance at the Valentino Haute Couture show during Rome Fashion Week, when she freed her nipples in a see-through hot pink gown.

Speaking about the controversy, Pugh told Harper’s Bazaar in her September 2022 cover story: “I was comfortable with my small breasts. And showing them like that—it aggravated [people] that I was comfortable.”

“It was just alarming, how perturbed they were. 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.”

More recently, she told Elle UK that “it’s the freedom that people are scared of; the fact I’m comfortable and happy. Keeping women down by commenting on their bodies has worked for a very long time.”

“Unfortunately, we’ve become so terrified of the human body that we can’t even look at my two little cute nipples behind fabric in a way that isn’t sexual…We need to keep reminding everybody that there is more than one reason for women’s bodies [to exist].”
