Welcome to NYLON's Fit Picks, a weekly roundup of our favorite celebrity outfits.
Paris Couture Week may be over but there were some buzzworthy moments and a ton of celebrity fashion that are just too good to not talk about, including Valentino’s Fall 2022 couture show.
In the final days of fashion week on Friday, July 8, Valentino held its presentation in Rome and as expected from the glitz and glam of haute couture, we were treated with a slew of celebrity appearances featuring none other than actress Florence Pugh.
While making her way down the Italian city’s famous Spanish Steps, the Black Widow star channeled the barbiecore trend by donning an elaborate sheer gown from the luxury brand’s coveted Fall 2022 “Pink PP” collection. Pugh then finished off her tulle ensemble with a pair of platform Garavani shoes and geometric-shaped earrings, all in pink, of course.
But her front-row outfit came with quite a bit of criticism, as the dress was see-through and bared her chest. On the following Sunday, Pugh responded to the backlash she received about her Valentino dress on Instagram, writing in the caption, “Listen, I knew when I wore that incredible Valentino dress that there was no way there wouldn’t be a commentary on it. Whether it be negative or positive, we all knew what we were doing. 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.”
She then addressed the comments about her “flat chest,” stating, “Thankfully, I’ve come to terms with the intricacies of my body that make me, me. I’m happy with all of the ‘flaws’ that I couldn’t bear to look at when I was 14. So many of you wanted to aggressively let me know how disappointed you were by my ‘tiny tits’, or how I should be embarrassed by being so ‘flat chested’[...] What’s more concerning is…. Why are you so scared of breasts? Small? Large? Left? Right? Only one? Maybe none? What. Is. So. Terrifying. It makes me wonder what happened to you to be so content on being so loudly upset by the size of my boobs and body..?”
She then continued: “Grow up. Respect people. Respect bodies. Respect all women. Respect humans. Life will get a whole lot easier, I promise. And all because of two cute little nipples…. #f*ckingfreethenipple.” And we couldn’t agree more.
