Florence Pugh goes braless in a white crop top and a floating skirt after discussing showing her ‘cute’ nipples in her famous Valentino gown
Florence Pugh showed off her incredible sense of style as she stepped out of London’s The Standard Hotel with a pal on Wednesday evening.
The actress, 27, went braless in a white crop top and a floating white skirt, which she styled with a pair of quirky platform embroidered mules.
She kept her essentials in a small brown handbag and shielded her eyes with a pair of tinted round sunglasses.
The Don’t Worry Darling star styled her short platinum blonde locks in a spikey style as she continues to grow out her Met Gala buzzcut.
She walked arm-in-arm with a male pal, who cut a casual figure in dark trousers and a beige shirt as they headed off after a fun evening out.
Florence’s latest outing comes after she spoke about her decision to show her ‘cute’ nipples in her famous pink Valentino dress as she hit back at critics.
Despite wowing in the show-stopping look, the star was faced with comments from ‘vulgar’ men who took to social media to point out her ‘flaws’ and ‘tiny t**s’.
The Black Widow star hit back at the cruel trolls at the time and continued to discuss the backlash in an interview with ELLE magazine for its October edition.
She said: ‘When everything went down with the Valentino pink dress a year ago, my nipples were on display through a piece of fabric, and it really wound people up.
‘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. I think we’re in this swing now where lots of people are saying, ‘I don’t give a s**t.’
‘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].’
At the time, Florence hit back at the comments she received from ‘vulgar’ men as well as those who chose to ‘publicly destroy a woman’s body’ with their remarks.
She wrote in an impassioned post on Instagram: ‘What’s been interesting to watch and witness is just how easy it is for men to totally destroy a woman’s body, publicly, proudly, for everyone to see.
‘So many of you wanted to aggressively let me know how disappointed you were by my ‘tiny t**s’, or how I should be embarrassed by being so ‘flat chested’.
‘I’ve lived in my body for a long time. I’m fully aware of my breast size and am not scared of it.’
Florence received the British Icon Award at the ELLE Style Awards 2023 on Tuesday and she also spoke to the publication about her style evolution and why she isn’t afraid of changing up her look.
In one striking look change, the star debuted her newly-shaved head at the Met Gala back in May, after previously styling long blonde locks.
Discussing her style, she said: ‘I think I’ve always been interested in wearing loud clothing. When I was a teenager, I would buy the most outrageous things and sew them together.
‘I’ve always loved colour. I’ve always wanted to be bold and make a bit of a scene – I don’t think that’s gone away.
‘When I first started doing red carpets, it was really tough. It takes ages to feel comfortable with 50 men all shouting, ‘Picture, over here!”
‘I’ve become more confident in the last few years, and I think that’s hugely linked to the clothes I’ve been wearing.
‘The more you can enjoy it, the more [people] can see that you’re enjoying it.’
