Florence Pugh is a Hollywood darling for a reason: She fully commits to whatever character she plays. In the fashion world, however, her biggest part is undeniably that of muse — Valentino’s, in particular. And, dear reader, she was born to play the role.

On Saturday, the Little Women star slipped into fashionista mode, once again, when she attended the BoF500 Gala at Paris Fashion Week in an LBD from Valentino. Spoiler alert: she absolutely stole the show. Ever the sartorial risk-taker, the top of Pugh’s dress was decidedly revealing.

The halter-neck bodice was more akin to a classic triangle bikini than formal wear. It offered hardly any coverage and was held together only by a thin strap under her breasts. While the swimsuit-inspired bodice was punctuated with a sweet bow, cut-out panels along her waist sent the ‘fit into even spicier territory.

Her skirt, on the other hand, initially seemed more conservative. The excessive chiffon fabric that pooled in front made it look completely opaque. But when Pugh moved, it became immediately clear that the dress was utterly sheer and fully exposed the high-cut thong she wore underneath. Similar to her other flowy Valentino ensembles, this too had a dramatic train that was swept by the wind whenever she walked.

Pugh merchandised her look with minimal jewelry that still packed the drama. Her glitzy lineup included a necklace and ring from Tiffany & Co. If you look closely, the pendant features a diamond-encrusted bird sitting atop a massive, rusty yellow stone. (The avian-inspired piece costs a whopping $75,000, if you’re in the market for that kind of thing.)

As always, the Don’t Worry Darling star donned her signature septum ring. Combined with the Draco Malfoy-esque slicked-back hair and dark, smokey eye makeup, Pugh’s piercing was the cherry on top of her edgy beauty look.

Long before she was officially named the label’s ambassador in April, Pugh dominated headlines for several equally-dramatic Valentino ensembles. These include her thong-baring sheer skirt and the now-infamous pink see-through dress that reignited the free-the-nipple conversation. If these ensembles were any indication, there are more stunning looks to come.
