Florence Pugh stars on her second Vogue cover for the publication’s winter 2023 issue, highlighting her high fashion sense and cooking skills. The 26-year-old “Don’t Worry Darling” star was photographed by Colin Dodgson and styled by Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, who chose an architecturally impressive gown that speaks to the actor’s confidence. One such design is Loewe’s sizzling yellow number from the Spring/Summer 2023 collection, which features a waist-defining cut-out and a black bow tied at the navel. The pleated fabric of the skirt is gathered at the sides but reaches a sheer column, unlike many of the “nude” looks Pugh has rocked on the red carpet.
Referring to the Valentino pink tulle confection that famously exposed her nipples and made headlines, Pugh said: “I’ve never been afraid of what’s underneath the fabric. If I’m happy with it, I’ll wear it.” She continued: “Obviously, I don’t want to offend people, but I guess my point is: How can my nipples offend you like that? It’s very important that we do this. I know some people might laugh at me for saying that, but if a dress that peeks out my breasts encourages people to say, ‘Well, if you were raped, you deserved it,’ it just shows me that there’s a lot more work to do.”
Pugh has collaborated with the house of Valentino and her stylist Rebecca Corbin-Murray on many other diaphanous moments, including a long, sparkly black dress she wore to the Venice Film Festival with revealing shapes; the metallic sequin briefs she chose for the 2022 Fashion Awards afterparty in London; and a revealing semi-duplicated polo and maxi skirt she changed into last Paris Fashion Week after her runway show.
Pugh is quickly becoming a style icon as she takes on critically acclaimed roles such as her highly anticipated role as Allison in “A Good Person,” a collaboration with ex-boyfriend Zach Braff, which she discusses in the article.
