Florence Pugh is proud of her body and showed this last Friday during Valentino’s Autumn/Winter 2022 Haute Couture show in Rome, wearing a transparent dress that exposed her breasts.
After receiving some criticism for her outfit, the actress wrote a post on Instagram in which she warned that she knew that “it was impossible that there would be no comments” about her incredible Valentino look. “Whether it was negative or positive, we all knew what we were doing,” Pugh wrote.
“I was excited to put it on, I didn’t feel a bit nervous. Not before, not during, not now. What has been interesting to see and witness is how easy it is for men to totally destroy a woman’s body, publicly, with pride, for everyone to see. They even do it with their job titles and work emails on their social media bio…,” the star added.
The protagonist of ‘Little Women’ pointed out that it is not the first time nor will it be the last that “a woman hears what is wrong in her body by a multitude of strangers, what is worrying is how vulgar some of you, men, can be.”
Despite the criticism and comments about her body, Florence Pugh is sure of her body: “I’m happy with all the ‘flaws’ I couldn’t stand to see when I was 14. Many of you want to let me know aggressively how disappointed you were by my ‘small breasts’, or how I should be ashamed to be ‘so flat’. I have lived in my body for a long time. I am fully aware of the size of my breasts and it doesn’t scare me,” the actress wrote.
Florence also questioned why in the XXI century, they scare breasts so much in the open and explained that she is grateful to have grown up with “very strong, powerful and curvy women”, and pointed out that “it has always been my mission in this industry to say ‘a la mierd* and a la mierd*’ every time someone expects my body to transform into an opinion of what is sexy or sexually attractive”.
The artist concluded her post by asking haters to mature and respect other people. “Mature. Respect people. Respect bodies. Respect all women. Respect humans. Life will be much easier, I promise. And all for two nice nipples…”.
Valentino’s creative director, Pierpaolo Piccioli, was one of those who praised the actress’ post writing in the comments section: “Respect.”
Florence Pugh chose a turtleneck dress with a layered tulle skirt, in PP pink, a color the firm previously created with Pantone for the fashion house’s Ready-to-Wear Fall/Winter 2022 collection.
The ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ star complemented the look with a pair of pink geometric earrings, a subtle ring and a pair of pink platform heels.
Under the title ‘The Beginning’, Valentino’s Friday show featured dramatic pieces in red, green, purple and the designer’s signature pink. Other stars in attendance were Anna Wintour, Naomi Campbell, Anne Hathaway, Kate Hudson, Andrew Garfield, Tommy Dorfman, Ashley Park and Charles Melton.
