Florence Pugh in Valentino at the British Fashion Awards 2022

Whether it’s the Cannes Film Festival or the British Independent Film Awards that GLAMOUR cover star Florence Pugh is attending, you can always count on her to bring her sartorial A-game. Her bubblegum pink Rodarte AW22 satin dress at this month’s BIFA in London was applauded the industry-over, while that lace crop top and maxi skirt co-ord by Emilia Wickstead (at the Tiffany & Co. ‘s ‘Vision & Virtuosity’ exhibit) left us reeling.

That said, perhaps her very best looks have all had a more specific common thread. Cast your minds back to October when the ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ actress attended her ‘The Wonder’ premiere. She wore a pink feathered dress with cut-out detailing by Valentino.

At the Valentino Haute Couture Fall/Winter 22/23 fashion show in July? A hot pink tulle Valentino gown with ruffled neckline and full skirt. On the front row at Paris Fashion Week in October? A mini Valentino dress paired with the brand’s cult, super-high heels in white. You get the picture. A whole host of Florence’s most-adored red carpet looks are a celebration of the actor’s close relationship with Pierpaolo Piccioli, the Italian fashion house’s creative director.

As such, it came as no surprise when the 26-year-old stepped out on the British Fashion Awards 2022 Royal Albert Hall red carpet in another epic Valentino number this week. This time: a sweeping, red, backless gown which serves as a masterclass in Christmas party dressing.

LONDON, ENGLAND — DECEMBER 05: Florence Pu attends The Fashion Awards 2022 at the Royal Albert Hall on December 05, 2022 in London, England.

Paired with slicked-back hair and the dark, vampy lip which has become Pugh’s signature, the dress featured a dramatic train, fitted bodice and elegant straps shoulder straps. If you needed a sign to level-up your office drinks get-up, this. Is. It.

Pugh has previously spoken out about her Valentino adoration on her Instagram feed. “Unbelievable craftsmanship went into the making of this gown,” she wrote. “Wearing @pppiccioli dresses are so easy, I step into his elegant designs and become alive. I thank every hand that helped this creation at @maisonvalentino, and to all those who helped me step onto that carpet. Thank you for making me feel my best, for filling me with confidence and love. I appreciate it all. ”
