British actress Florence Pugh attends the 95th Annual Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood California on...

Oh, they grow up so fast. Florence Pugh’s rapidly evolving red carpet style was on full display at the Academy Awards on Sunday, March 12, where she was a presenter. At her first Oscars, in 2020, you may remember that she wore a teal belted, tiered dress to mixed reviews from fashion critics. But this year, there’s no denying Miss Flo belongs on the best-dressed list. 

The Don’t Worry Darling actor wore a strapless, billowing Valentino Couture gown that alone would have had us talking. However, it’s the surprise underneath the dress that took the look to the next level: a pair of peekaboo black micro shorts. In a red-carpet interview with E!, Pugh described the look as “bit of romantic, bit of punk.” 

Pugh accessorized the outfit with a pair of black platform heels, pink tourmaline and diamond earrings, and a sculptural Tiffany & Co. necklace. Her beauty look was inspired too—especially when it came to the hair, which appeared to be a ponytail flipped up to create a chic micro fringe. A little black bow completed the look.
