Florence Pugh has defended her controversial sheer dress in response to criticism, questioning why people were “offended” by her exposed nipples.
Florence Pugh On The Backlash To Her Relationship With Zach Braff: ‘They Imagined Me With Someone Younger’
The Oscar-nominated star, who is featured on the cover of Vogue’s winter issue, talked about the contentious sheer Valentino dress in a latest interview.
“I’ve never been scared of what’s underneath the fabric. If I’m happy in it, then I’m gonna wear it. Of course, I don’t want to offend people, but I think my point is: How can my nipples offend you that much?” Pugh asked.
Pugh first responded to the criticism on Instagram, writing:
“It isn’t the first time and certainly won’t be the last time a woman will hear what’s wrong with her body by a crowd of strangers, what’s worrying is just how vulgar some of you men can be.”
The “Midsommar” actress also revealed to Vogue that she is actually fairly average, despite co-starring with heartthrobs Timothée Chalamet and Harry Styles and frequently rocking the red carpet.
“Yes, I can put makeup on and look good for a premiere. But at the end of the day, I still have hair on the top of my lip and I still smell after a workout and I still get spots when I’m stressed,” she said.
