Whether you were first introduced to the actor through the iconic horror film
Midsommar or are just now catching up on the drama, Florence Pugh has stayed permanently on Hollywood’s mind over the past few years. Don’t Worry Darling
Though Pugh’s rise to fame has undeniably skyrocketed over the past three years, due to her work in
Black Widow and Little Women, her red carpet moments actually span back to the start of her career in the mid-2010s. During that time, she has continued to define her red carpet style to what it is today (read: edgy as hell and inarguably cool).
Pugh is particularly known for taking fashion risks, ever reaching for edgy details, like plunging necklines, see-through fabrics, exaggerated trains, and, of course, her signature
septum piercing. Her sheer Barbiecore gown was such a bold statement that it brought an onslaught of social media trolls with very outdated opinions on nipples.
mic drop response: “I’m fully aware of my breast size and am not scared of it. What’s more concerning is…. Why are you so scared of breasts?” Thankfully, this hasn’t stopped the actor from going full speed ahead with her red carpet looks — especially for the Don’t Worry, Darling press tour (which, in my humble opinion, include some of her hottest fashion moments yet).
Ahead, take a look at 30 of Pugh’s best red carpet looks to date.

One of Pugh’s best looks, IMO, was this sheer Valentino gown. It came with exaggerated puff sleeves a corset bodice, and a waist-high slit that revealed shorts underneath. Let’s not forget those plumed pumps. *Chef kiss.*

Taking it back to the 1940s, Pugh’s gingham dress featured a pencil skirt and keyhole cut-out at the bust, leading up to a buttoned collar and puff sleeves. Very much giving Clare McCardell, the OG of American fashion.
