Florence Pugh, 27, has seriously established herself as one of the hottest Hollywood actors in recent years. Only since 2021 can she look at roles in blockbusters like “Black Widow,” “Don’t Worry Darling,” and not least one of the summer’s big talkies, “Oppenheimer.”
With an impressive resume also comes stardom, and with stardom one quickly becomes a victim of ridicule and praise. Last summer, the 27-year-old stepped out in a pink Barbie dress during the Valentino Haute Couture show, and it didn’t go unnoticed by the critics.
The dress was made of sheer fabric, so you can clearly see the actress’s nipples.
Pugh received so many comments on the outfit that she chose to take to Instagram to respond to the criticism.
“It’s not the first time and certainly won’t be the last time a woman has been told what’s wrong with her body by a group of strangers. What’s troubling is how vulgar some of you guys are. Many of you have wanted to tell me so strongly how disappointed you are with ‘my breasts’.” The little one, “or how embarrassed I should be for being so ‘flat-chested’,” was among her writings at the time.
In the October issue of the British Journal Ella She graced the cover of Pugh, and on that occasion she also gave an interview to the magazine. There she recalls last year’s fashion show, and talks about the criticism she received for her “nipple dress”.
– I talk about my body this way because I’m not trying to hide cellulite on my thighs or the “bulge” between my arms and chest. I’d rather share everything, says Pugh of the much-talked-about ‘look’.
The actress has come out many times against those who criticize her for what she chooses to show herself. She doesn’t have much to gain from the online trolls who have a problem with her body.
What I find most frightening are the cases where people got upset because I showed “too much”. When everything happened about my pink Valentino dress last year, it was because my nipples were showing through the fabric, which got everyone really excited.
Pugh rages against those who sexualize the fact that she wears a dress that shows her nipples—and states that women’s bodies exist for more than just sexualization.
– Unfortunately, we have become so afraid of the human body that we can’t even look at my beautiful nipples behind the cloth in a non-sexual way. And we must keep reminding everyone that there is more than one reason for women’s bodies, as the Oppenheimer star affirms.
